    that's happened to me more that a few times here over the years, including recently. I've also had several instances where a person agreed to sell me something at said price and I was going to pick it up at a more convenient time , say in a couple days or on the weekend and then get a note that they got a higher offer and sold it for more. These are douchey moves to me . These have been a topic of discussion and that I have raised in those discussions. The feedback " first to show the money wins" and that a seller 's prerogative to sell an item for as much as they can get. I call it welshing on a deal. It happened not long ago on a car that we saw, negotiated price and agreed upon doing the deal....was very disappointing because we had made arrangements to sell the current vehicle we had, even took a down payment that we returned in full and had to disappoint somebody else that we had committed to in addition to losing the vehicle.

    Would it make sense to have the following protocol?
    1) Buyer and seller negotiate the terms in private;
    2) Once all of the terms are agreed upon, the seller posts them on the item thread;
    3) Once the deal is concluded, both buyer and seller make posts confirming that the terms were fulfilled, or not (and why).

    This would avoid a lot of backpedaling (on either side) when a deal goes bad.
    The terms would be posted up front for all to see, therefore it would be clear to future buyers/sellers if deals were honoured.

    Based on my experience in business, nothing cuts out the crap quite like committing agreements to paper.

    Great point!

    Yeah I'd agree on this. There should be some way to block it so that feedback can only received from a buyer-seller relationship. Maybe have it work like a notification system? Where once an item is closed the buyer is required to tag who it was sold to on here in some auxiliary system and the seller then gets a notification of this. I noticed myself I had accidentally clicked negative just through scrolling as my cursor had hovered over it.

    AFAIK members can't actually view who's given feedback to someone other than themselves and for what sale so I agree it's completely worthless as is.

    Thanks for the feedback! It's a new system so there will certainly be some hiccups that we can hopefully navigate together and improve upon. Unfortunately there is no iTrader plug-in available, so that isn't an option.
