Angry: Passive-aggressive Ebay feedback

February 1, 2018 § 1 Comment

So here is the deal: I leave passive aggressive positive feedback all the time to show sellers that their slights don’t go unnoticed. Recently I won 7 auctions from the same seller. Some auctions had 3 cards, some had 1 card. I knew ahead of time that I was going to win multiple auctions so I messaged him asking his combined shipping price. He said 50 cents per auction after the initial $3. So for 12 cards I was charged $7 shipping. Shipping at most would have been $4. I didn’t message the guy, but I left said passive aggressive feedback on 3 or 4 of the 7 auctions calling him out for the shipping prices. He messaged me after it.

His parting shot was this:
“lol good talk over a 20 dollar deal… remember next time u sell shipping fees went up. next time don’t bid on something that u already know the price of. That would make everything easier for everybody including u as seller and a buyer… have a good night and enjoy your cards!!”

As much as I wanted to respond and call him out for handling this $20 situation like this, and then suddenly saying it wasn’t worth it because of the price, I just didn’t care. I was passive aggressive because I didn’t want to message him in the first place.

So do you have a take on this situation? We all know that sellers who charge an arm and a leg for shipping like this are bad for the hobby, but how about how this situation was handled? Is passive aggressive positive feedback alright to do or should I have messaged the guy in the first place? Was he wrong for how he handled it? Do I need to be put in my place? Do you leave passive aggressive positive feedback?

    I do the same thing as a buyer. I had to pay
    $5.50 last week on a best offer of 6 cards. .50 per additional auction. In the note section of the offer i said, “$5.50 to ship 6 cards?” No feedback let yet.
