After you are satisfied with the listing, click the submit button and your auction will be queued for listing, but you aren’t done yet!
There are other things you should know. When you first begin selling on eBay, you will be “unknown”. You may be wondering “how do I get Known?”
eBay has devised a simple way for other users to rate their experience with you. This is known as “feedback”. Your feedback accumulates both as a buyer and a seller. This gives you a total score based on feedback as given by others to you.
There are three types of feedback. The transaction that was good will result in a positive feedback. From time to time, a buyer may not necessarily be happy with the product received, but may not have a problem with you. This will result in a neutral feedback rating for that transaction. Still other times may occur when a buyer (or a seller) just did not like anything at all about the transaction. He leaves a negative feedback for the transaction which will take away a point from your total feedback. Your overall feedback is still visible to a potential buyer, but that out front will reflect only the current number. Each potential buyer is also able to view the feedback so they can try to find out why a negative was given.
Obviously, the higher your feedback rating, the better the price you will realize on your items, so it’s in your best interest to make sure you do your very best to keep all feedback positive.
