If you want to sell on eBay as part or all of your home-based business, one thing you’ll need to acquire rather quickly is feedback from other eBay users. eBay’s feedback mechanism helps to guide buyers trust in you as a seller.
Aside from needing feedback to establish yourself as a legitimate seller, there are certain feedback levels you need to reach just to use certain eBay features. For example, you need at least 30 feedback points to use Multiple Item Listings (also called ‘Dutch Auctions’) and you need at least 100 feedback points to use eBay’s new ‘Ebay Express’.
So what do you do when you are first starting out as a seller on eBay and need feedback? One way to gain feedback points rather quickly is to just start buying things. The sellers you buy from are more likely to leave you feedback especially if you pay quickly and leave them feedback when your items arrive.
The eBay requirements mentioned above do not differentiate between the feedback received from buyers versus sellers – to your overall feedback score, they’re all the same. This is a quick way to get your feedback score up to 30, 50, or higher and you can always find things to buy there.
