All about Feedback

Feedback represents your reputation as an eBay member. It’s made up of comments and ratings left by other members you’ve bought from and sold to. Find out how Feedback works.

Solve a problem
If you’ve received negative Feedback, you can tell your side of the story by replying to the Feedback comment. As a seller, you can also send a limited number of requests for buyers to revise the Feedback they’ve left. If a buyer has abused Feedback rules, you can request that we remove the Feedback by clicking the Report link at the bottom of Feedback abuse policy page .
Feedback can be left only for members who are currently registered. If a member decides to close an account or that member’s account is suspended, the item will appear in My eBay for 60 days. If the member’s account is reinstated or if the member cancels the account closure, you'll be able to leave Feedback.
You can leave Feedback for the same member multiple times, once per transaction. The way your ratings affect the member’s Feedback score depends on whether the transactions occurred in the same week.
