eBay Sellers Association : UNFAIR FEEDBACK POLICY  

AS SELLERS ON EBAY - WE HAVE SEEN THE CHANGES EBAY HAS HAD FOR THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS.  WHERE ORIGINALLY - EBAYS GOAL WAS TO PROVIDE A SAFE - GROWING MARKETPLACE AND TO SUPPORT GROWTH - AS THEY HAVE REACHED A PEAK - INSTEAD OF FOCUSSING ON MARKETTING THEIR SITE AND COMPETING WITH AMAZON, YAHOO, GOOGLE AND SUCH - THEY HAVE TURNED THE RESPONSIBILITY ON THE SELLERS.

WE STOOD BY SEVERAL MONTHS BACK AS EBAY RAISED THEIR FEE'S INCLUDING LISTING AND FINAL VALUE FEES - LOWERING OUR PROFITS - YET STILL EXPECTING HIGHER CUSTOMER SERVICE.

FAIRNESS ON THE SITE HAS BEEN ABANADONED - WE THE SELLERS WILL UNITE TO STAND FOR JUSTICE - WHETHER IT RELATES TO FILING CLASS ACTION AGAINST EBAY, EXPOSING THEIR PRACTICES ON NEWS, MEDIA, AND MANY OTHER CHANNELS TO ENSURE EBAY REPAYS THE COSTS OF DAMAGES THEY ARE CAUSING TO THEIR SELLERS

EBAY HAS IN PLACE POLICIES RESTRICTING AND CLOSING SELLERS IF OVER 5% OF BUYERS LEAVE NEGATIVE, NEUTRAL, OR FILED DISPUTES.  FURTHERMORE NOW THEY ARE OVERREACHING - STOPPING SELLERS FROM LEAVING ANYTHING BUT POSITIVE FEEDBACK, AND NO LONGER PERMITTING MUTUAL FEEDBACK WITHDRAW OR MEDIATION THROUGH CHANNELS SUCH AS SQUARETRADE.

IF YOU CARE ABOUT KEEPING YOUR BUSINESS LIVE ON EBAY - AND WISH TO STAND TO MAKE A CHANGE - SUPPORT OUR CAUSE AND SIGN.  EBAY WILL BE HUNTING FOR SELLERS IN THE MONTHS TO COME - AND UNLESS WE CAN UNITE AND PUT A STOP TO THEIR UNFAIR PRACTICES - THEY WILL TAKE US ALL OUT OF BUSINESS.  EBAY HAS NOW PUT ALL THE COSTS OF KEEPING THEIR NAME ALIVE ON THE SELLERS - AND IS SEEKING TO CHARGE US ALL PREMIUMS.

LETS GET 10,000 SELLERS TOGETHER - WE CAN TOGETHER ALL MAKE A DIFFERENCE.


  • WE STOOD BY AS EBAY RAISED THEIR LISTING AND FINAL VALUE FEES - AT THE SELLERS COST.
  • WE STOOD BY  AS EBAY REMOVED MUTUAL FEEDBACK WITHDRAWAL
    • IF THE SELLER KNOWS THEY CANNOT REMOVE A NEUTRAL / NEGATIVE FEEDBACK - THE SELLER WILL NOT HELP THE BUYER TO RESOLVING THE ISSUE - HENCE THE BUYER WILL SUFFER - MAKING EBAY A SITE WHERE ITS HARDER TO BOTH SATISFY BUYERS AND SELLERS
    • WE STOOD BY AS EBAY STOPPED THE FEEDBACK WITHDRAWAL FOR BUYERS WITH INVALID CONTACT INFORMATION - SO A BUYER WITH FALSE INFORMATION CAN MAKE A FAKE ACCOUNT - MAKE A PURCHASE - HARM THE SELLERS PROFILE - AND THE SELLER IS LEFT HELPLESS WITH NO RECOURSE
  • WE STOOD BY WHERE EBAY RESTRICTED SELLERS FROM LEAVING NEUTRAL / NEGATIVE FEEDBACK FOR THE BUYER - SELLERS CANNOT LEAVE APPROPRIATE FEEDBACK FOR NON PAYING BIDDERS OR FAKE EBAY ACCOUNTS - CAUSING EXTREME EXTORTION - AND MAKING THE SELLER ABSORB ALL THE COSTS INCURRED IN THE ADVERTISEMENT AND FINAL VALUE FEE - ULTIMATELY REDUCING THE SERVICE PROVIDED TO THE GOOD EBAY BUYERS
  • WE STOOD BY AS EBAY STARTED SUSPENDING EBAY SELLERS - WITH THEIR STRICT AND ABSURD "NON PERFORMANCE POLICY"
  • WE STOOD BY AS EBAY TOOK MEDIATION SERVICES AWAY FROM SELLERS USING "SQUARETRADE" - A EBAY COMPANY FOR MEDIATION AND RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES TO LEAD TO HIGHER CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND FEEDBACK WITHDRAWAL
  • WE STOOD BY AS EBAY INTEGRATED THEIR "DSR" - RESTRICTING MANY SELLERS FROM GETTING THEIR ADVERTISEMENTS WORTH - AND NOT BEING SEEN IN THE BUYERS SEARCHES UNDER "BEST MATCH" - ULTIMATELY COSTING SELLERS THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN LOST LISTING FEES. 
    • IF ALL SELLERS ARE PAYING THE SAME AMOUNT FOR LISTING FEE'S - SELLERS VISIBILITY ON THE SITE SHOULD BE EQUITABLE.
    • SINCE SCAMMERS OPEN NEW ACCOUNTS - WITH NO RESTRICTIONS / LIMITATIONS - THEY HAVE THE HIGHEST "DSR" ON THE SEARCH - AND ELIMINATING THE POWERSELLERS FROM HAVING THEIR PRODUCTS SEEN - DAMAGING THE POWERSELLERS AND THE BUYERS WHO GET SCAMMED.
  • IF EBAY'S GOAL IS CUSTOMER SATISFACTION - THEY COULD HAVE LOOKED INTERNALLY TO SQUARETRADES "WARRANTY" - WHICH 9/10 TIMES JUST TURNS AWAY THE CLIENT WHO MAKES A CLAIM AND JUST REFUNDS THE BUYER THEIR WARRANTY FEES
NOW ITS TIME TO SHOW EBAY THE POWER OF OUR VOICE

EBAY COULD HAVE INSTEAD OF PLACING ALL THE PRESSURES ON THE SELLER, USED A FEW PERCENT OF THEIR PROFIT IN CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND ASSISTING ANY TRANSACTIONS THAT HAVE ISSUES - SIMILAR TO HOW OTHER SITES SUCH AS PRICEGRABBER, AMAZON, AND OVERSTOCK OPERATE - HENCE EBAY ITSELF ENSURING CUSTOMER SATISFACTION AND ELIMINATING BUYER / SELLER'S ABILITY TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SITE AND OF THE FEEDBACK SYSTEM'S INTEGRITY.
To: eBay Management

We, the undersigned look to show ebay that the sellers do represent a common interest of fairness in the marketplace. 

We demand that the New Feedback policies which eBay has placed be immediately removed and that ebay allows sellers to leave feedback as the seller feels appropriate - and more importantly that feedback withdrawl is allowed once again.

We demand that the SNPP (SELLERS NON PERFORMANCE POLICY) be removed from ebay and that powersellers are rewarded with the benefits that they are currently receiving.
