As a seller there is a reason to wait on providing feedback. Just because
you got paid doesn't mean the transaction is successful. Both sides need to
be satisfied. I frequently wait until I get feedback from the buyer. If I
don't hear something several days after the package should have been
delivered I go ahead and offer the positive feedback. That frequently
results in feedback from the buyer. That are still a lot of people that do
not use the feedback system. I've had five people renege on purchase
agreements lately. That is really maddening.  /jmac

Hi Boris,

As for what to do about the problem at this point I don't know what to tell
ya, but I can tell you how I handle leaving feedback on ebay.

As a buyer on ebay I almost never leave feedback before the seller has left
me a positive. I see no reason for a seller to withhold feedback once they
have received payment, the buyer has held up their end of the bargain. The
only reason I can see for a seller to wait is for the purpose of
retaliation. If for whatever reason I were planning to leave a negative,(
fortunately I've only had to do this once) or even a neutral, I would
absolutely wait for the seller to leave feedback first. If you really feel
you most leave the feedback, and the seller has not given you a feedback
yet, then I would consider making it a neutral, unless you can live with the
negative retaliation your likely to receive.

Just my opinions, hope your able to get the matter resolved satisfactorily.

Best of luck, Darin
