How to Respond to Feedback on EBay

Positive or negative, sometimes you feel that you should respond to a comment left by the person who has been involved in a transaction with you, in the comment box under his profile. Be assured your response will be seen and read by other people who have been logged on eBay. Your reply to the feedback solely depends on the nature of the feedback that you have received. However, try to be positive or at least neutral, instead of getting involved into a controversy. Nevertheless, your comments should be in line with eBay policy and rule of conduct.

    Read Feedback

    You should read and know about the comments to determine if you really need to respond to those comments. If the feedback is positive, generally you may not be required to respond to them publicly. However, if you see any attacking point, any controversy or some points that need clarification, you can respond to the feedback directly under the user name of the person.

    Writing Your Reply

    Be assured you have to follow eBay's policy and code of conduct while writing a feedback reply. Use plain and simple language. Also, try to focus to the point you want to clarify in the reply, and avoid making it a lengthy speech. Readers are more likely to be convinced if you reply to the comments point by point and in a concise manner. Writing purposelessly will not help your cause.
