Nothing, that's why I wait for the seller to do it first. You are the customer, and he should appreciate you. The big sellers on eBay have automatic feedback systems so you can safely leave it first and know that you will get it.

I say we track him down, drag him out of his house in the middle of the night in front of his family and beat him to a pulp.

At least it wasn't negative

some sellers take a long time to get to it and some just dont. I sold a frame to a guy, he asked when it was shipped and i said it will be there in a week. Well i never got a response from him, i never got a "i never got the frame" or a "i got the frame" email. Oh well, i got my money and im happy. You got your product

It was a cheap item (4.75), but I dont think hes going to get any more money from me unless I get feedback.

Suck it up and write it off that some sellers are dicks and jwhen it comes to buying from them again just fuggeddaboudit!

The way we do business is when our customers pay, we leave them feeback and ship the next business day. Our favorites are when an auction closes Thursday evening and we get a PayPal from them by Friday morning, we'll ship it Friday... and they're blown away when it's in their mailbox on Monday. It don't get any better than that!

I get about 50% of the feedback I deserve. (I always pay fast, I'm patient with shipping, etc.) I've made 20+ purchases on ebay including some big items and only have a score of 10. Deal with it.

If I'm happy with the way the transaction went, I leave positive feedback. I don't worry about the feedback left for me. Feedback isn't supposed to be "scratch my back, I'll scratch yours", it's supposed to reflect how the transaction went down. Give the seller some time, he may be too busy to get to it right away. If he never does, then so what? You paid your money and got your merchandise, so no loss.

I gave him about a week and a half, but no responses. He has since made other sales, according to his feedback record.
