Fraud Evaluation System
The evaluation system that eBay has put in place helps the seller and the buyer.
On completion of each sale both the customer and the seller have the opportunity
to evaluate the experience, give a positive, neutral or negative rating and leave a
comment about the specific sale, this helps in fraud prevention.
The evaluation system helps to alert you as the seller when customers leave out
of the ordinary negative evaluations. You then have the option to reject the sale
and have the option to explain the reasons why the sale was rejected. Please note
though that this applies to out of the ordinary circumstances only. The seller may
not leave negative observations under normal circumstances; the only options
the seller is allowed is to give praise and a review.
eBay has integrated Paypal, and this enables you to accept real-time payments
and this provides the seller much needed protection.
