eBay's new Detailed Seller Ratings
eBay adds Detailed Seller Ratings to its feedback system

eBay has decided to make the first significant change to its feedback system in over 11 years with the announcement of Feedback 2.0. In addition to the standard positive, neutral and negative ratings, Feedback 2.0 will also provide four additional categories, where buyers can individually rate sellers on called Detailed Seller Ratings (DSRs).

The four new categories are: Item as described, Communication, Shipping time and Shipping and Handling charges. Buyers will be able to rate sellers on a 5-star rating scale on each category.

According to eBay, the DSRs do not affect a seller's overall feedback score, but are put in place to help gauge a seller's performance in key areas. "We expect buyers to purchase from sellers who have high stars on the dimensions most important to them," said Brian Burke, Senior Manager, Global Policy Management for eBay.

Other changes include the addition of the item title and selling price under each feedback entry on a seller's feedback page. Previously, only the feedback comment along with the feedback rating and item number were included.

eBay plans to roll out Feedback 2.0 in Australia, Belgium, France, India, Ireland, Italy, Poland and the United Kingdom within the next few days. Feedback 2.0 will be launched in the United States this spring.

I agree on Number #1 lets see a total instead of 20 listing of the same item at varying costs and varying shipping so I have to do the math in my head to which is the lowest.

I would also the option to remove my positive comments or state a rebuttle.

I sold a motherboard on e-bay to a guy in perfect condition and rare. To have him claim it doesnt boot. I refunded the money and paid extra to have it shipped back. When it arrived I discovered the jerk flashed the bios with one that wasnt for the motherboard. So he screwed up the mobo and I am one who lost out of the deal by having to buy another bios $20.00 + Shipping because he screwed up the board. Needless to say I dont sell Mobo's any more with a warranty. Its only happened once but Im sure my previous Mobo's dont sell for as much as they should.

He might have replaced your motherboard with his non-working.

Yea thats possible. I forgot to mention I put a small sharpie dot somewhere on the motherboards since then so I can tell if its the original.

It was a FIC motherboard that was the idenitcal motherboard found in a emachines model.

Yep this is a common scam, be sure to record serial numbers on all items shipped (and take pictures of them). Also state this in your auction text to ward off these losers.

Scammers will always be around on eBay because it's extremely hard to enforce any punishment on them legally. Hopefully that changes sometime in the future.
