Default Build Your Reputation

it's always impt to build your ratings/reputation while dealing on online auctions.
Sellers with High Ratings/Reputation basically means that their transactions/dealings have been tried and tested.

With a well proven track record, it'll just mean that your potential customers will have more confidence and faith when dealing with you.

therefore, as a sellor, always ensure that your lead time is kept minimal, always reply your emails, and send out your items promptly.

After which, give your buyers a good rating ... this will directly hint* them to give you one back. (but shd they forget to rate you, you can always be abit thick skin and send them a frenly reminder)

Just a simple scenario:
A seasoned seller with 300 positive ratings selling a VCD at $10
A newbie seller with 0 ratings selling the same VCD at $8

which would you choose?... i know our answer varies.. but i guess the seller with a high rating is more appealing... don';t you think so??

Thumbs down Re: Build Your Reputation

yes , its quite true. But at the same time, high good rating does not mean no bad rating too, there are always some nasty buyers out looking for troubles...

You are right. Reputation is very important. I state my eBay feedback ratings on my website so that my potential customers feel they can trust me. I think it works. [Ebay id: usa-shipper ]

I agree that it is impt to build up the reputation. however is there a need to hint and even be a bit thick skin to ask the other party to give a good rating? What if the customer is not entirely happy about your service or product?

Question Re: Build Your Reputation

Selling on ebay is great.

However, I noticed that most buyers in ebay are looking for a steal thus you must be prepared to lower your profits, even to the event of waiving the shipment fees.

I also noticed that if you start your auction with 0 dollars then you get bids or 0 dollars to about 5 dollars.....it does not really make business sense.

But as a marketing point of view YES, and that is what I do for my ebay store.

I have a question,

how do we know if one is not cheating with reputation.
Say, he can have his friend filling his reputation

Sorry to spam,

I know you have to buy first before you give reputation.
But one can always pretend to buy, right?
