    Question Feedback Question

    Is there any sort of rule or guideline that I would be breaking if I refuse to sell my fabric / items to forum members who have a history of not leaving feedback? Thanks in advance.
    - Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.
    - I've lost my mind somewhere in the heap of quilting scraps and motherboards.

    I don't think feedback is a requirement for purchasing fabric.

    And I understand that. But, I am not required to sell to someone just because they reply to the ad either, correct?

    I don't know. I think you should PM PatriceJ and discuss your concerns. I am afraid this policy could cause some very hurt feelings, but I don't sell so I don't know all of the policies.

    Sadiemae, I understand your concerns, but here is the deal: not leaving feedback for the seller caused hurt feelings to the seller as well.

    Stitchinbee, I understand. It is probably best to ask the moderators though just to be on the safe side. Good Luck to you!

    If the transaction went well.. I don't understand. I have sold some items and never got feedback, and all went well. Some just don't want to take the time. And others are still figuring out this board, and don't know how to leave feedback. I would not hold it agains't someone who paid promptly and had no issues.

    I understand what you are saying Lori S, but there are many details that I have chosen not to share, and it will remain that way. Anyhow, thank you all for your replies, I think my question has been answered, and I appreciate all your helpfulness.

    we are not a marketplace. feedback is optional. sellers are not entitled to receive feedback. buyers are not obligated to leave feedback.

    Member A cannot reject Member B's offer to buy just because Member B chooses to not use the feedback option.

    Member A cannot ask or demand that Member B leave feedback.
    Member A cannot complain if Member Bs do not leave feedback.

    Member A can reject an offer to buy only if:
    -Member B does not want to pay the asking price.
    -Member B does not want to pay using the seller's required method. (for example, if Member A says she will accept payment only through PayPal she is not required to accept Member B's request to pay by check.)
    -Member B has a record of negative feedback as a buyer.

    Its hard to make a finite list of acceptable reasons. What if your car broke down and you couldn't get to the post office? What if you just decided you wanted to keep it?
    Surely posting something for sale is inviting someone to approach you to attempt to enter into a contract, rather than an absolute commitment to sell?

    surely not.

    we shouldn't offer things here unless we are willing to follow through.

    I guess US contract law is different.

    i don't know about contract law. i just know it would be very bad manners to offer something unless we were sure we wanted to sell/trade it and could be trusted to follow through.

    Maybe a nice little tutorial on how to leave feedback would be helpful for those who don't really know how. And an explaination on why it's important to leave feedback even if everything is satisfactory.

    I've not bought anything from anybody on the board but on other groups I have. I honestly wouldn't have thought about leaving feedback before reading this thread. I figure you have my money, I have what I wanted that's the end of the transaction.

    In most cases, I consider a transaction good if:

    I offer something, the person pays for it, I send it, they get it and are happy with it.

    OR

    Someone offers something, I want it and it's available,I pay for it and I get it and it's as described - life is good.

    I usually try to leave feedback - sometimes I don't - It's nice to get give and get good feedback.

    I usually don't even get overly upset if someone changes his/her mind about buying something - as long as the person lets me know, too!!!!!! (There have been a couple of major exceptions to that, but if it's a piece that I have not cut yet and something comes up in the other person's life - stuff happens - just let me know, too. )

    I would like a way to let others know that someone has not followed through for no good reason, though. (Note - I am allowing for illness, accidents, death, loss of work, etc.)

    Overall, MOST of the people I've dealt with have been great - either buying or selling - and I would be happy to work with them again.

    I've also been trying to figure this out. Help would be appreciated.
