I just noticed earlier today that total feedback is now displaying as it was before. It now shows your 12 month percentage and total amount of feedback, not just the number of feedback in the last year.

Thank goodness. It sucked looking like a newbie.

Pretty much same experience here with banggood. If you set expectations super low, and keep in mind you cant return anything (you can but it will cost you more than you paid for the item) then you'll be mostly okay. One watch (an early 80s style digital) I bought was so bad it went in trash. Another (an analog watch) works fine.

Does it hurt retailers in the U.S.? Yes, but with so much bad stuff on those sites, imho ppl will get burned enough that they'll avoid the chinese sites for many purchases.

* Amazon Central / Change in Feedback Presentation
« Last post by uncleleroy on May 25, 2018, 01:05:30 PM »
Amazon began rolling out a new format this past week in how feedback is presented to buyers. After noticing a change (without any warning by Amazon, of course), I opened a case with seller support. Here is the email I received back:

I went through your email and understand that your lifetime feedback rating is not showing on the offer listings page.

Please allow me a chance to explain this to you.

I've researched and found the reason of this. This occurs when a seller has more than 10 ratings in the past 12 month period.

Consider the example, the information for one seller displays Seller Rating:99% positive over the past 12 months. (395 total ratings), While another reads Seller Rating:94% positive 'lifetime' (141 total ratings). This occurs because the second seller in the example above has less than 10 ratings in the past 12 month period.

As soon as a seller receives 10 ratings for the year period, the feedback rating display will change to "over the past 12 months." Likewise, as ratings age and fall out of the 12 month period, the display will change from showing "12-month" statistics to showing "lifetime" statistics when the number of ratings for the seller over the past 12 month period falls below 10.

In your case as you've received more than 10 ratings (100%over the past 12 months. (274 total ratings) ), your rating display is "over the past 12 months." Please do not worry as it displays that your selling account has pretty much good rating than others.

I request you to understand that this is totally system generated and we as Seller Support Team doesn't have access to change it. I've taken this as a feedback and conveyed this to our business team since I understand this is important to you. Once this feature of showing up lifetime reviews of all sellers, is launched you would be notified on your registered email address "".

Also, I'm able to see your lifetime rating on your feedback manager which is 100%, I'm glad to see that:

Your understanding and co-operation on this issue is appreciated.

If you still have any further queries you can write back to us by clicking the "Contact Us" form.

As a Support Representative your satisfaction is my top priority, and your feedback a very valuable asset.

Hope you have a great day and please don’t hesitate to contact us again if you need help in the future.

Happy Selling!

My current IPI is 568 and still climbing higher. If anyone needs assistance in working how to increase their score, don't  hesitate to ask.
* Amazon Central / Inventory Performance Index (IPI)
« Last post by uncleleroy on May 20, 2018, 11:50:01 AM »
If anyone does FBA, I am sure you are aware of the IPI. Here is a brief synopsis from the forum moderator Susan:

"Good inventory management can lead to reduced costs, improved profitability, and more business growth for FBA sellers. Improved inventory management will also help your products be received and delivered to customers more quickly. The Inventory Performance Index87 (IPI) measures inventory management over time, including how well you balance inventory levels and sales, fix listing problems that make your inventory unavailable for purchase, and keep popular products in stock. We will continue to improve the IPI score to ensure it encourages and reflects inventory management best practices.

As there has been some confusion about the new metric, here are answers to frequently asked questions:
What does my IPI score mean?

An IPI score above 450 means your FBA inventory is performing well, and a score above 550 indicates your inventory is a top performer. A score under 350 could lead to limits being placed on your FBA storage and to overage fees, as outlined in the new storage limit policy"

He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich

You've found that tidbit out about eBay.

It's just out of the norm to have it removed and not struck through.
Amazon's feedback system is whack.
