* Amazon Central / Can't Contact Customer for Negative Feedback
« Last post by uncleleroy on January 13, 2020, 05:06:29 PM »
I rarely get negative FB that sticks. This time around though, I received it for a product I don't even carry. The feedback stated that the customer kept ordering a specific size and kept receiving a different size.

So I tried to get it removed in hope the bot was ill-programmed and would remove it. No such luck.

So I go to use the "contact customer" function to appeal to the buyer about their feedback and kindly ask them to remove it. After all, Amazon's help pages do tell us to try and resolve any issues with the customer.

Nope. Nada. Nothing. I am blocked from contacting the customer completely. I tried this with another negative FB I received (but was striken through). Nope. Nada. Nothing.

So now we can't contact the customer at all?

Yes, enjoy your life however you are able. That way, when it is our time to go we can sense that we have lived a full and happy life.

And thank you for the condolences for Dad. It is still surreal and it hasn't yet quite sunk in yet of his passing. I am sure it will become real in the near-term future.

And yes, we look forward to hearing of your stories. Those of us that are too young to retire are going to live vicariously through you.  :laugh

Your retirement seems to be on track. You can keep the soap operas. But I will take a bon bon if you will pass me one!

I am glad to hear that hubby hasn't gotten progressively worse. Make sure to appreciate the ones you have for as long as you have them. I know life can get in the way of that but if you continue to make time for loved ones, you won't have to live with regrets.

I say that because my dad passed away just over a week ago on Monday, December 9th. We had his funeral this past Saturday. Every day I was at the hospital and taking mom with me (neither of them drive). Making time for my dad while he was in the hospital and in rehab to come home was the best thing I could have done, even though it put my own life into some type of chaos. I have no regrets about the time I spent taking mom and going to visit him. In fact, he passed just a few hours after mom and I had left from our last visit. He was 94 so we knew at that age anything could happen but we had been preparing for him to come home in a few days or a week. He initially went in for a kidney stone. At the end, my dad knew I loved him and that I cared for him.

Your daughter's illness (and your entire family) is still in my thoughts and prayers. Has there been any updates on any possible treatments that might help her situation?

Glad to hear of your second son's upcoming wedding. I hope things work out well with him and his bride-to-be.

When you sell your house, do you plan on moving far away or just downsizing some?

Thanks so much for asking.
Soap opera's?
Nope.
Never been much of a fan.
Plenty of bon bon's to pass out though.

I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your father.
Deepest and most sincere sympathies.
I mean that from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for sharing the days up to his passing and the day of his passing.
It helps to talk about it.
I'm so thankful you were there through the last weeks/days.
I'm glad that you have peace knowing he knew you loved him and cared for him.
In the end that is what helped me to go with peace at his passing. 

I went through this with my father almost 2 years ago.
Some days it feels like yesterday and other days it seems years ago.
A double amputee with diabetes and his kidneys failed at the end.
It had been a really rough year for him for many reasons and his health progressively got worse, too.

He was placed in a hospice facility and we children were there 24/7.
Everyone who needed to tell him good-bye had a chance to be there.
I held his hand as he passed and it still brings tears to my eyes.
Not tears of sadness but tears of feeling blessed I was there.
It's hard to explain.

No new treatments for my sweet daughter.
We hope every day that something new will be found.
She handles her life with grace and her head held up high.
Couldn't be more proud of her.

Second son wedding will be in St. Augustine. One of our fav get-aways.
They are having a 'destination wedding'.
Money will go toward honeymoon in August.
Only family, immediate family.
It's going to be soooo much fun!
She's in graduate school and they have dated for 3 years.
My son is a classically Le Cordon Bleu trained chef.
Once she graduates, he will return to school so he may teach culinary skills.
The life of hospitality workers is not cohesive to having a family.
And they want to start a family in the coming years.
MORE  grandchildren!

Selling this house so we may move to a maintenance free environment.
I want to look out my window and see someone mowing my lawn and cleaning out the gutters.
HA!

I want to be able to leave at a moments notice and not worry about our home.

We celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary in December with a cruise.
We're heading to the panhandle of FL this coming week.

Planes. Trains. Cruises.
Let the enjoying of our time begin!

We. Are. Going. To. Live. Life!
And I don't want to worry about my home.
Especially with dear daughter at home as much as she is. 

Blessings and more sent to you.
I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and send strength.

I will check in from time to time.
Promise!

I do find many more 'cheesy grins' in my life in selling eBay in collectibles, hard to find items.
Not going to live my life actively looking to find items, but if I run across them... eBay here I come
I enjoy eBay.
My Amazon attitude now is pretty much...
Meh.

I used to L.O.V.E. selling on Amazon and hate that the end of my time selling with Amazon leaves me just.... sigh.
Just nowhere near the enjoyment that I used to receive (bucks were nice, too).
The happy partnership years of 2007/2008 through 2015...just aren't their anymore on my part.

eCommerce has been a vital part of my life.
I started back when it was in it's baby years (eBay 1997ish) and have been quite successful with every ecommerce business I ran with.

Decisions were made and I've followed my plan and it's now time to implement that last steps.
It's time!
Woo Hoo!

That's the one I was referring to...
KUHHHHHRAZY!
So done.
So very, very done.
Altogether a prosperous last holiday selling season.

Good to hear that your ebay store is doing well. Are you going to cut out all sales in your "retirement" or just Amazon?

Speaking of the forums...
<rolling eyes>
What is the difference between fulfilled by amazon and fulfilled by merchant. I am a new seller

Ha! Or the newest thread "I don't think Amazon is for me"... quoting the OP:

"I think I am going to close my Amazon Seller Account because I don’t have any products here at my home. But I still don’t get it how it works. I have watched all the videos in Seller University but I am still confusing because one customer ordered a coffee mug for only $4.99 and got an email from Amazon yesterday that stated I have to ship it to the customer which I don’t have a product to send. I thought Amazon is the responsible to ship it for me. Well I am going to close my account soon. (Sigh)!!"

No wonder my sales are crazy through the roof. People like that make established sellers like me look good...even if I am permanently banned from the forums  :h0035
