    I've had a few book sellers totally space and loose the book they were supposed to send me, they apologized and sent me a refund in the same few minutes. For those two I just didn't leave any feedback at all I didn't see a need to ruin their score over a simple error I could very well make myself sometime. If it were intentional, that would be far different IME.

    I've only left maybe 2 negatives as a buyer in all my ebaying years (received no negs) One was a girl who kept saying she was sending my plants but after the 90 days feeback window was about to close then I posted taht after many emails she still never sent the plants. Can't recall the other but I remember the damn thing finally came just after I left bad feedback, I felt bad about it then. However I don't feel bad leaving negatives on people who bid big amounts on something then not pay up. I'd like to go crazy bidding on everything I like and then not pay up too but it's not fair to the seller or the honest buyers who loose out because of some JA teenager.

    Well I guess we'll agree to disagree.

    The item I ordered was time sensitive (I needed it in a fairly short period of time) & he lied to me twice that he actually sent it to me. I'd agree with you if he was responsive to my emails and came clean instead of being lame & lying.

    Additionally, the auction ended with my winning the item for a low price - much lower than any of the others up for sale at the time.

    His actions caused me to be delayed in getting the item for over a month and at a much higher cost than originally agreed. I should have provided good feedback for this

    Ironically, a few months later, I had a seller on half.com tell me their listed book was out of stock (after I purchased it for their asking price). Instead of selling it to me for the price they listed, they relisted it for a price $20 higher. Same rare book, same seller - relisted the next day at a higher price. Based on my previous experience, I did not leave any feedback - but that doesn't mean I didn't feel ripped off...

    Looks like they covered pretty much everything.

    That's called "feedback extortion", or more accurately "holding feedback hostage".

    Once a winning bidder/buyer pays in a timely manner a feedback rating should be issued and then you ship the item. Of course there is no way that eBay can enforce this but that's the nature of the beast I suppose. (and now we no longer have that problem )

    What is up with Paypal taking so freakin' long to allow a payment to clear? This has happened with a few things I've ordered as well as auctions where it takes something like 4 or 5 days to get the ok. This is all done electronically-it should be practically instantaneous!

    The paying account has to be verified for instantaneous transactions. Basically it needs an alternative source of funds such as a credit card.
