I'm feeling fragile. It is because of a shock I experienced yesterday. I had been supply shopping on Etsy and unfortunately faced a seller whose product didn't meet my expectations. So I had to leave her three feedback: one positive, one neutral and one negative. What did I receive in return? Three negative feebacks. Yes, this really happened. I have contacted both the seller and the Etsy admin but so far there is no response from either one. I keep on waiting. And what really makes me mad, is that this seller's product was really poor, some of them fell to pieces just too easily. How could I sell items further made from this crap? On top of this she's not accepting returns. This should have been a warning sign to me right in the beginning! A reputable seller accepts returns, no matter if the item is perfect or faulty.
It is so sad the Etsy buyer cannot leave an honest feedback in fear of getting abused. As far as I have understood these issues have been solved on Ebay. The buyer protection is so much stronger there. I think I will refrain from buying supplies on Etsy until the feedback system has changed. It has to change! If you want to avoid a disappointment, please go and look through my feedback so you know who I'm talking about here.
