I'm looking at the feedback of a power seller with 10,000+ feedback. However, 150 are negatives. Is there a way I can just see the negatives without browsing through every page? I've been wanting to find a solution for this for a while.

Oh yeah, I just won an auction for an item at what I thought was a really good price. An hour later, the seller starts another auction for the same item with a "Buy It Now" price that's even less than what the end price of my auction was. DOH!!

I remember looking at only the negatives 2 or 3 years ago. I don't know if they've changed since then.

If he's got 10000+ positive feedbacks, why would you worry about his negative feedbacks?

Well, many of my items went more than my BUY IT NOW price .... I don't understand it either ;)

Because I think 150 negatives is still a lot and I would like to see some of them. I went through and read some, but it meant swimming through over a dozen pages of feedback.

I dont think 150 out of 10,000 is really all that bad, there are some people who will never be happy, and a lot might be from people he wouldnt sell to for some reason or another (bad feedback, screwy paypal address etc)

that 150 is only 1.5% which is very good. you can select to view up to 200 entries per page, but that may be the only way - sorry no help here

After you get 200 per page, in IE, you could select Edit, then Find(on this page) and search for the word Complaint. Just a thought. :)

Yeah, that was what I was doing. 10,000 feedback raing is still 50+ pages with that option though.


And I know 1.5% negative is a good percentage, but I'm curious to see why they were complaints and how the seller responded.

I don't think there is a way, other than the method mentioned above. I agree it would be nice to see all the negatives together.

Usually I just look at the trends, even if a high amount of complaints, perhaps none in the past 6 months, etc., which can be more telling than if they're rec'd all of them in a very short amount of time, for instance.

Gah, I've been on ebay for 3 years. 72 positives, 2 neutrals, 0 negatives. Then last week, in a span of 2 days, I get negged THREE times. Once in retaliation by a seller who didnt ship, and twice by moronic bidders. Right after a listed a bunch of stuff. :|

Damn that sucks! I still read the comments though, trend alone is not enough :) Sometimes it's like someone has fallen apart or died, all of a sudden a big load of "never rec'd product" or "would not return e-mails" type of messages.

Good find!

There is also GutCheck. It is an eBay FeedBack Analysis Program for IE4 or above. Some of its features are listed below.

[*]First of all its free! (Though, we do reserve a small spot for our use in the top right corner for a 'text only' link).
[*]Installs as a right click menu item in Internet Explorer.
[*]Right click on a eBay member name or feedback score on any page to initiate feedback analysis.
[*]Receive percentage positive, neutral, and negative feedback of total feedback received.
[*]Filter view to just negative/neutral only.
[*]Filter out feedbacks left by users with feedback scores of 'X' or less.
[*]Export view via clipboard to Excel, Word, etc.
[*]Sort all columns (left by, feedback score, feedback type, auction date, etc) ascending/descending.
[*]Drill down own feedback item and see auction title, date auction ended, and closing price.
