We've known for some time that Half.com is an EBay company, but now they're going to merge the seller ratings between the sites and the process they've adopted seems kind of unbalanced. For what it's worth, I have a 226 positive feedback rating at EBay (no neutral or negative feedback) and a 4.9 rating at Half.com (107 positives and two neutrals--both the neutrals are due to USPS delays). Now EBay says I have to decide whether or not to merge my Half.com ratings with my EBay ratings. If I choose to add the Half.com ratings, my perfect EBay rating takes a hit (I go from 226+ positive at EBay to 312+, 2 neutral combined). If I decide NOT to add the Half.com ratings, they get discarded completely--which seems patently unfair to me. The logic behind these combined ratings escapes me. Since I sell mainly DVDs and CDs at Half.com, my ratings are weighted toward commodity transactions. At EBay, I tend to sell bigger ticket items which require a lot more time, energy and accountability. To me, the ratings should not be combined because they are not equal in weight. Plus, there is no feedback response allowed at Half.com, which means a buyer can flame you without recourse (at EBay, you can give feedback to buyers and respond to negative feedback--which cuts down GREATLY on undeserved negative feedback). So...I am wondering what to do...do I add the Half.com feedback or discard it? This issue affects everyone who has an account with both EBay and Half.com, so I'd appreciate some conversation on what strategy works best over the long run.
