eBay Feedback Numbers

On eBay Buyers and Sellers earn a “feedback score”,it’s a number that is the sum of all the positives transactions, and minus all the negative ones. It can only be effected once per transaction partner.

  • Current Feedback score: 43,092.

Some quick numbers

I’ve posted 9,875 more feedback there I’ve received, which works out to I posted 20% more then I’ve received, or on average for every 6 posts I make, I get 5. On average buyers only post 79.5% of the time. That’s 1 out of 5 does not post anything.

Seller to Buyer ratio is 128.9 : 1, or I do about 130 times more seller transaction than I do as a buyer.

Of my Feedback Score, selling accounts for 95.75% and buying for 0.74%.

eBay has a math problem

The number do not add up. The received as seller & as buyer numbers add to 41,583, but the total feedback received was 48,148. This leaves 6,565 (13.6%) in feedback received that was not included in the seller / buyer numbers. I am assuming it’s from before a time when eBay tracked the as.

More Transactions?

Is eBay missing transactions on the transaction count? I ask only because here again the math does not add up. How is it possible that I’ve posted more feedback than I’ve done transactions by 9,656?
