- PROBLEM WITH THIS SITE IS THAT THEY DO NOT KNOW ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES OF ANY TRANSACTIONS THEY ARE PROVIDING DETAILS FOR AND ALL EBAY SELLERS KNOW THAT THERE ARE FRAUDULENT BUYERS ON EBAY AND EBAY SUPPORTS THEM BY ALLOWING THEM TO LIE ABOUT TRANSACTION PROBLEMS AS WELL AS PROVIDE NO DETAILS ON WHAT THE ACTUAL PROBLEM IS. MANY BUYERS DO THIS TO TRY AND GET A REFUND AND THEN KEEP THE ITEM FOR FREE. SELLERS (AND BUYERS MORE SO) KNOW THAT EBAY SIDES WITH THE BUYERS ABOUT 99.9% OF THE TIME WHEN A DISPUTE IS LAUNCHED.
There's one big problem with this site, the information is not accurate! I both buy & sell on eBay with several thousands of dollars a month. When screening both buyers & sellers I've found many inaccuracies on here when I've gone back & checked ebays records. Let alone that sellers can't leave buyers negs! So this site perpetuates this problem. I contacted Win Brent about the inaccuracies & his response was that eBay doesn't contact him when they remove, change, etc so informations on sellers is not up to date! Nor does his site share all the messages between sellers & buyers. I've delt with horror stories of a buyers as well as sellers, plus the many buyers who just are complacent about leaving feedback. I've stopped using it because of all the found inaccuracies it has!
If you're an Ebay buyer this tool is indispensable. Put in a seller's ID and you'll see every single neg and neut they've been given without having to endlessly scroll through their feedback on Ebay. Highly recommend, super tool!
If you're an eBay seller or buyer this is a must! As a buyer it's obvious, you want to know if the seller ships items after payment, if the items are in described condition, etc. Usually feedback is comprehensive for sellers but as a seller on eBay, I've become aware of how it's important to screen out buyers.
On PurseForum, there have been incidences listed of reverse scams on eBay. I.E., you sell a Chanel bag for $2000 to some buyer. After receiving it, buyer claims it's fake and Paypal/eBay sides with them (if for some reason you can't provide proof of it's authenticity even though it is) and you're forced to refund them. They send back a fake bag: you're out the bag AND money. Other issues include malicious buyers who for some reason leave negative feedback on a rampage or has a history of scamming sellers via different usernames that eBay does not regulate or try to put a stop to.
Toolhaus lets you look up a username's negative feedback, including buyers' that eBay has made invisible now on the main site. This helps you judge on whether or not you're dealing with a fake bag scammer or a malicious buyer.
