Posted on ebay at present are 17 x Blackpool Homes 1961-1972, as a buy it now for £1.25 plus £1.90 postage. Was going to but them until I noticed the seller's rating of, wait for it, drum roll...... -1 (minus one) !!

How is that possible ???

The guy is new to eBay. The two negatives were left from the same buyer who wanted combined postage for two items bought. As a new seller he probably wasn't familiar with combined postage or how it worked. I'd go and ahead and make the purchase. At that price it's no real gamble.

That's pretty damn unlucky, getting a neg on your very first transaction. lol

I bought something from a seller with a rating of '4' recently and was a bit nervous & wary, but had no reason to be, the item & service was impeccable.

Perhaps it's human nature that we expect eBay users to have an established record of sorts we can check before they're permitted to sell.

As we know though, the words "EBay" and "Common sense" are rarely seen in the same sentence together.

Two points:

1. His rating has went up to 0 now !!!

2. The programmes were due here last Thurs/Fri. Still haven't arrived !!!

His rating may plummet shortly. Sad

I feel so guilty . Sad Give it a few days. you're protected , just a bit of hassle . I hate when things go wrong on eBay. 99 percent of sellers are brilliant.
