Appraise an eBayer’s Reputation

Quickly decipher a pattern of behavior from the comments in a Member Profile profile to determine someone’s trustworthiness.

Trust is the foundation of the eBay marketplace. Whether you’re a buyer about to make a purchase from an eBay seller, or you’re a seller trying to figure out if a customer is a deadbeat bidder, you can use the feedback system to gauge the trustworthiness of any eBay member in just a few seconds. Unfortunately, the information that’s most useful isn’t necessarily right on the surface.

Click the feedback score, the number in parentheses shown next to any eBay user’s member ID, to view his Member Profile page. At the top of the profile page, eBay shows a summary and distribution of past feedback comments, as shown in Figure 1-1.
