Ebay Continues To Welcome Malicious Bidding.

Despite complaints from it’s sellers, ebay refuses to update the Unwelcome and Malicious Buying policy which states that sellers may exclude buyers at any time prior to the listing close and are free to cancel unwelcome bids.  After a seller has cancelled a bid, the bidder may not place a new bid without the seller’s permission.  Buyers who do not meet the seller’s terms as outlined in the item listing also are not permitted to bid on or buy the item.

In response to the new feedback system, sellers who are no longer allowed to leave negative or neutral feedback for bad buyers, have been altering their auction policies to incorporate the Unwelcome and Malicious Buying policy only to find that it is an ineffective policy where it comes to seller protection.

Ebay acknowledges these transactions as valid and rewards the malicious bidder by allowing them full access to the sellers’ feedback profile, including the Detailed Seller Ratings portion.
