How much positive feedback is enough?????

I know that this topic comes up every now and again but this time the question is not the same....

We all know that members dont give feedback and we are short some well deserved + feedback....

My question is this:

Do buyers care if you have 10 or 500?????

After a certain amount I would think you are trust worthy.


I never log off and I had to disable my screen saver because it was causing problems , making me have to restart my computer every time it kicked on. Please keep that in mind if you message me and I don't reply back right away. Thanks.

Re: How much positive feedback is enough?????

I think after 50 is good enough but people like to do the right thing and leave a +. opposite could be said about a negative. If someone has a +500 rating why is he for sale restricted after say 2 or 3 negatives? Just trying to look at both sides of the coin...

105!  At that point, I think you should NEVER be questioned!  EVER!  lol lol  J/K

In all honesty, I look at how long a member has been a member, and his/her negative, if they have any.  This means more to me then positives.  Some people are just quite, passive members.  They have been here since 06', 07', and have like 300 posts, and maybe 20 or so + feedback.  But no negatives.  I trust that person.  Then there are those with hundreds of positives, that I do not trust, based on a few negatives, and an abrasive attitude.

Re: How much positive feedback is enough?????

For me it's been as long as you have "some" 10 seems like a good start point. If you have any neg. you need at least a 50-1 ratio (50 positive to every 1 negative) for me to fell safe.

P.S. I always leave feedback, and I "remind" the other party to also leave feedback.

Re: How much positive feedback is enough?????

Anyone with over 300+ feedback you should buy anything they are selling for any price.

Re: How much positive feedback is enough?????

I think you should look at who has givin the feedback to the guy. Also check to see if the guy has feedback for just buying or selling if you are buying from him.

Re: How much positive feedback is enough?????

I usually only buy...but i'm a couple short of my 50....lol

But i dont believe any amount of positive feedback is a guarantee....i have recently found out about what seems to be a very "dubious" deal with a seller who has over 250+ feedback......given enough pressure, even the good can turn to the "dark side"

Edit..so to answer the question...No Amount....but it normally would be a good indication of the seller, and you would expect to have no issues.

I feel the same way. justa few so I know you are for real smile ten feedback is not going to sell me a 500.00 item though, at least not without some worry.

I have not always been the best about leaving fb but try to. a reminder is always appreciated wink

Re: How much positive feedback is enough?????

After a year here i am jaded on this question as i have seen many members with many positive FB simply fail in their transactions.

Life on the internet is a gamble, Please treat it as such.

Ask questions and get proof.
