Hey Guys! I want to ask you about the following: Who do you think has to post the first feedback, the seller or the buyer ?
Like in the following scenario: Buyer pays for his order - the seller has the money, so everything went well for him - he can post a (feedback) as the terms of the buyers are fullfilled. Buyer - gets the Laserdisc - and can post a feedback after he got his stuff. But (!) isn´t it more wise (for a seller) to wait until he got a feedback (until the buyer received his goods) , meaning, that everything went smooth, and then post his feedback ? Just in case something went wrong ?
I am honest here, I like to give feedbacks, realy, I´m the sort of guy that likes to received and give (good) feedbacks, it´s something that is very important to me, after a deal went fine. And I enjoy reading good feedback, yes, I confess, I really enjoy that. So, what do you guys do, post feedback first, or wait until you got one first ?

I leave feedback right after the payment is received - this is also what I do on eBay and other sites.
Like 10 years ago I did the "lets wait for the buyers feedback first game", which resulted in no feedbacks
were given at all in 90% of the sales. So I gave up on that idea again and do my thing.

Is it a bit like wondering who should ask who to dance first at the prom? Interesting observation lons.

Seeing this very post reminded me last night I hadn't left feedback for a purchase from exinferis/laserdisc addiction that had arrived well packaged and all safe earlier in the week (thank you!) so did that straight away. He'd already left feedback for me as had G&J rarities whose package just arrived today (not even opened yet!).

Looking at the feedbacks page also made me realise I'd forgotten to leave feedback for the last purchase before those back in December. Admittedly I can be a bit tardy with this but 6 months is a bit much! (Sorry to bram.kalman/music and more - all fixed now!) But then I saw the last two purchases before that around 15/8 & 29/8 that I'd left feedback but nothing from either seller.

I see how the feedbacks are important to show a history for both buyers and sellers that the person is genuine and reliable. But if I never get feedback from those two sellers I can live with it.

@audioboyz1973: I hope it doesn´t lookthat way that I made this thread because of our last transaction :-) It was a great one with perfect communication - I was just wondering why other people do not leave feedbacks. Maybe it´s just that, they are not that interested and are not as freaky as me...
I guess that lons_vex is right about the fact that some people don´t give fb and are more motivated when they get a feedback. Maybe that reminds them to give feedback ? Who knows...
At one point I was thinking feedback should be mandatory, but then again, there are enough exisiting rules and it´s a hobby.

Oh no, I definitely didn't take it negatively that way, but regardless it was a timely reminder!
Thanks again for the discs! Now I just have to remember to leave feedback for G&J!

Leaving feedback right after a patron transfers funds is my practice as well.
They have completed their part of our agreement.

The only time I delay leaving feedback is if there is any nastiness or testiness during the initial encounter or if rudeness is displayed during the haggling dance.......

Fortunately only the case in a handful of tranactions out of hundreds...........

Great thread...

Cheers to the membership
