BidBlocker is a site for eBay sellers to share their Blocked Bidder lists. Here is what the homepage says:
"You have all heard about the changes occuring on Ebay. Sellers will no longer be able to provide negative feedback to buyers.
The only way sellers can protect themselves from unwarranted negative feedback is to block problematic Ebay customers. Customers who have left negative feedback in the past are more likely to do so in the future.
How does it work?
- Ebay sellers add buyers to BidBlocker's database.
- BidBlocker looks at all feedback left by the buyer.
- BidBlocker calculates a Buyer Feedback Rating - a statistic not listed on Ebay.
- Registered BidBlocker users can then copy the list of buyers into their blocked bidder list based on their definition of an "acceptable" Buyer Feedback Rating."
I thought "Blacklisting" went out in the 50's.
This website is a perfect example of why eBay will have a tough time making changes to the site. Have you heard the saying, "for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction"? Blocking buyers, who leave negatives for sellers, defeats the purpose of eBay's feedback changes. Buyers who leave negs, will soon find that they can't buy from a large number of sellers. How will this improve their customer experience?
At first, I thought this site wouldn’t get much traction, but after seeing so much anger about the feedback changes, the "network effect" might give this site a shot. Sellers are always trying to find ways to game the system and this is a perfect example.
Update: Apparently, the point of this post was not clear. I am not suggesting this is a good idea, but is an example of what sellers will do, to get around eBay's rules. That's all folks!
