How to Improve Your eBay Feedback Score


How to Improve Your eBay Feedback Score

eBay sellers and buyers rely heavily on their feedback score, with most consumers avoiding sellers whose score isn’t in the high nineties. If you’re like many others, you have an eBay account but have never sold or purchased enough to have a high score. So, how can you improve your eBay feedback score ethically and quickly? Read on to find out how.

Take advantage of purchases you already make

You can find almost anything on eBay; this means the day to day purchases you make at the supermarket could easily be made on eBay. If you own a business and make stationery or other purchases that aid you in running your business - use eBay. Chances are you could save some money as well.

Make a list of all these items as well as everything else you might need. To make the overall process less time consuming, only look at 'Buy It Now' items. You can also sort products by the lowest price.

Find the cheapest listing for the item you need

Always keep an eye on the shipping costs. You are looking at the lowest total cost; this is the purchase price plus shipping. eBay Express gives you an advantage and will sort the minimum price for your total cost (that means purchase price plus shipping).

Buy from the seller once ONLY

You might have found an excellent seller that has everything you need at a great price. So why should you go to another vendor? Sellers can only give you feedback once. Dramatically improving your feedback score will require you to buy from a new seller every time - somebody you have NEVER purchased from before.

Remember, even if one seller has everything you need for a good price, they can only impact your feedback score once, so purchase from a new seller every time.

Pay quickly!

Once you buy your items, pay IMMEDIATELY! This will help you get positive feedback. Not paying quickly and causing delays could end up hurting your score and doing the exact opposite of what you set out to do.

Leave feedback quickly

Like paying quickly, you should leave your feedback about the seller immediately. Once you have received your items, inspected them, and made sure they are of their description, leave feedback as soon as possible. A delay in giving feedback will mean your positive feedback will also be delayed. If there is something wrong with the product, you may still be able to get positive feedback by appropriately dealing with the issue.

Something is wrong with the item?

If there is something wrong with the product, you may still be able to get positive feedback by appropriately dealing with the issue. DON’T leave negative feedback. Give the seller some opportunity to correct the mistake. Contact the seller and explain what the issue is. Most vendors will try to settle the matter if they think they can turn negative feedback into positive. After the issue is resolved, give them positive feedback. Giving them negative feedback straight away will result in you getting similar feedback.

How long will this take?

Depending on how dedicated you are to this process, it could take a month for all the feedback to come in. It is an excellent way to get a good feedback score, so the time and money are well spent.

For those of you who are trying to make it to the next feedback star level, or trying to overcome negative feedback, it’s best to spend $50 to $100 at a time. This process can add up to 20 positive comments to your score, bringing it up a considerable amount.

Remember, you are purchasing items you need anyway! This means you are getting two jobs done at once, shopping and improving your feedback score. The faster you pay and leave feedback, the quicker your positive feedback will come in. Good luck!
