I was thinking a bit about an item I had sold on eBay just now and a few sub-topic changes later I got to thinking about a certain aspect of feedback. Who here actually cares that much about feedback when buying something? What I mean is, if you find a good price on something that you want to buy, will you actually care about feedback? Unless the guy has like only 10 and 3 of them are negatives, or like an 80% or lower rating in general, would you really not make a purchase? Like, a lot of sellers with around over 100 feedback will have 1 or 2 or even 5 feedback with people saying like "Item did not work, seller refuses to provide refund or exchange" or "Item never recieved" or "Not the item that I purchased, seller refuses exchange" or such, without any resposne from the seller or whatever, and still, it seems buyable if the price is right. I am pretty sure that I've bought like this. I guess people may write it off as a calculated risk, or even just not think about it. Therefore I'm thinking that to mass sellers feedback might not even really matter that much at all, making your only real option in case one screws you over, negative feedback, meaningless. Although this might not be the case, heh.
