    eBay DSR System is TOTAL MANAGEMENT INCOMPETENCE

    DSR = DETAILED SELLER RATINGS 1 to 5 Stars

    Since the DSR system has been initiated 90% of Sellers will not leave any Feedback for the BUYER until they are assured and confirmed the BUYER has left Feedback that confirms a higher degree of Credibility and Optimistic Honesty

    Unfortunately these are characteristics of only ~ 60% of Buyers on eBay and this is a Stretch. The fact that the DSRs left by BUYERS are anonymous takes away much of the Value and Honesty in this type of Feedback System

    Why you say ? A buyer may feel he Paid to much , It was Wrong Color, He broke it, have Buyer’s Remorse or in a down economy just think why the Hell did he buy this item anyway , did he really need it – so BUYER leaves only 4 STAR anonymous feedback which he feels justified in doing because he does Not know the New DSR impact on a Seller
    The Buyer does not really care about this DSR Bull anyway –because he has NO SKIN in the Game Here.


    A 4 STAR Average FEEDBACK will Result in SELLER SUSPENSION OVERTIME


    The Reality is the DSR feedback is NOT totally anonymous even though eBay broadly displays the message on top of the Feedback when being left. It can be easily figured who leaves what DSR feedback with a little analysis.

    This Ebay Message on the Feedback Page – encourages lower SELLER feedback

    Remember – these detailed seller ratings are anonymous, so please feel free to leave honest ratings about your buying experience.

    On the Feedback a Seller with a DSR level of 4 will be suspended by eBay over a 3-6 month period

    Here are 4 STAR ratings
    -----------------------
    How accurate was the item description?.....................................Accurate
    How satisfied were you with the seller's communication?..........Satisfied
    How quickly did the seller ship the item?....................................Quickly
    How reasonable were the shipping and handling charges?..........Reasonable
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here are 5 STAR ratings
    -----------------------
    How accurate was the item description?.....................................VERY Accurate
    How satisfied were you with the seller's communication?..........VERY Satisfied
    How quickly did the seller ship the item?....................................VERY Quickly
    How reasonable were the shipping and handling charges?..........VERY Reasonable

    The only word difference eBay gives between a 4 and 5 STAR Rating is VERY

    This is RIDICULOUS * DEFINED BY A ABSOLUTE MORON and is Destroying many eBay Seller’s Desire to SELL on eBay unless he or she likes to get BEAT with a STICK Daily. The only sellers left will be those that are paying eBay for DSR Feedback – yes this is correct PAY for Feedback or to achive a 5 STAR

    DONAHOE MUST BE FIRED – TERMINATED FOR EBAY TO SURVIVE HIS APPROACH TO BUSINESS DEMAND / SUPPLY LOGISTICS ONLINE IS INSANE AND BRINGING DESTRUCTION TO EBAY – WHEN THERE ARE NO QUALITY SELLERS AND PRODUCTS YOU DO NOT NEED BUYERS

      READ PAY PAL SCAM

    • Why is Donahoe still here

    • ebay is INCOMPETENCE at its BEST

    • DSR stands for (DUMB SUBSCRIBER REJECTS)

    • John Donahoe still at eBay - WTF

    • The star system on eBay works differently.

      It is there to help sellers, NO Seller has EVER been suspended, because of the eBay DSR system.

      eBay is the industry leader, the shares will rise by 80% in June. That is due to the lack of puts, and increase in hold options.

      Very easy to understand AND foresee.

      Moody Rating for eBay: AA

    • Ebay rise from 10 bucks is all BS

    • Still No Change to this Ridiculous DSR system

      also:

      1. Donahoe has NOT been FIRED why ?
      2. No EBAY LIVE anymore ? - Donahoe is a Affraid to attend
      3. Sellers still under the Truck
      4. eBay/ Pypal Fees at 17-22% all time high in a struggling economy
      5. Heath benefit savings to Power Sellers are a JOKE

        eBay Alternatives for Sellers (RATED) !!!

        Comparing websites to sell on (NO... eBay is NOT #1 !)

        Computerworld surveyed over 20,000 sellers in the last year (2008-2009), about their experiences on online selling. Here are the results:



        ebay

        The website you DON'T WANT TO SELL ON IS EBAY. They care a rat's fart about sellers, have no customer support, and you will be suspended for simply selling a pencil. Of course, they keep your positive seller account balance, and will never reinstate you again, after following their bogus eBay fax document reinstatement process. eBay shares have risen, based on speculating Amazon will buy out eBay. RATING: F

        ioffer

        Until Warner Bros. recently took over ioffer, it was not a bad site to get a bargain. Now Warner Brothers and other so-called "eat-my-own-puke" C.O.P.S. will suspend you, even if you list 100% legitimate factory-sealed original & authentic merchandise. Positive account fees of suspended ioffer sellers are refunded, though. A sheer waste of time website. Rating: D-


        ebid

        Wannabe ebay site. No traffic, no sales, just some so-called customer support reps, who will put your account on hold or suspend you for no reason, whatsoever. Don't buy a seller+ lifetime ebid membership. Why should you? Too expensive, to pay $59 flat just to be suspended and then file a Paypal claim against them, to get your money back. Lacking customer support. Ebid behaves as if its the next ebay, but doesn't live up to it. Time and money waster. Avoid! RATING: E


        Onlineauction

        No customer service, almost as bad as ebay, horrific website design.
        Don't bother. No hits, no traffic, no sales. A shameful waste of time. Avoid it. Rating: F


        bonanzle

        Fun and easy to use website. Very low final value fees for sellers. Keep out of disputes between buyers and sellers. Will only suspend you, if you directly steal money from buyers, and don't deliver goods. Great customer support. Let's you import feedback from other websites, treat people with respect and courtesy. Plain and simple fun. Rating B.


        ecrater

        Where else can you sell anything 100% free? No listing fees, no FVF, a haven for sellers of anything. Fantastic customer support, will remove unjustified or retaliatory negative buyer feedback (since sellers cannot leave feedback for buyers). Easy to use, import items and set up shop. Again, THERE ARE NO SELLER FEES. Top rated website, the number one alternative to any other website for sellers on the internet to date. Rating A.

    • Meg Whitman, is actually right here giving me good head (Lewinsky-like)!!!!!


      1) Stop this booboo nonsense, and let people get rid of their eBay skeleton RIGHT NOW!!!!

      2) WHATEVER eBay says or does is a LIE. IT NEVER IS THE TRUTH!

      3) IN September, October THIS particular blog will be referred back to when the eBay share price is >$5 (less than $5 apiece).
