As a buyer my role is done once the paypal payment reaches their account, hence I should get feedback the moment that is done rather than once the seller has seen that I've left him pos feedback.
I run an ebay store for my workplace and to be honest its automated that we leave feedback after the buyer has left feedback, this way we know they have recieved an item in good condition and in good time. If an item is faulty or unsuitable they can contact us and it gives us chance to rectify the problem and gives the buyer a chance to leave feedback based on the whole transaction - that includes after service.
The buyers role ends when they are happy with a transaction, they have to see the item 1st hand to know that, if they aint happy - then the transaction is not over until they are happy. once they are happy - we are happy
IMO most normal ebayers are good and understand why we do this.
Sometimes we get a neg feedback, we ask what went wrong and if we can rectify the problem, in some cases careless postal workers have damaged stuff - not our fault but thats not how ebay-buyers see it
, we sort out the problem then they can cancel the feedback they left.
It is just as much a sellers right to leave whatever feedback they want based on the whole transaction as much as the buyers.
