RSS eBay feedback monitoring
TameBay readers are always resourceful and one pointed me to a neat feedback tool this week. It’s basically a feedback tool to enable you to be notified by an RSS feed whenever someone leaves feedback for you.
“One tool I have been using for the past 4 month which is wicked is this Yahoo Pipe. This allows me to monitor via RSS feed my positive neutral and negative feedback on a drop down on my browser. Useful for eTRS and general monitoring of your status. I can also access this information on the go with my Blackberry RSS feed syndicator”.
The tool is a Yahoo! Pipe, which are tools to allow you to aggregate, manipulate, and mashup content from around the web. This tool has been set up to monitor feedback simply by entering an eBay User ID and eBay site.
What you can also do with this tool is monitor a competitors feedback via RSS. If you want to know how much feedback your competition is receiving and want to monitor multiple competitors accounts you can set them all up as RSS feeds in your RSS reader. From then on, whenever any of those competitors is left feedback, you’ll be notified of it in your RSS reader.
I dedicate enough to ebay as it is than monitoring for some tard leaving me a neg. Id rather spend the time on my own site than bother with this.
er I must be daft
I just click on feedback in my ebay and i tells me all I need to know
– create a Rss Feed of your feedback
– use WebRss to create a widget
– Display your Real Time Feedback in your webpage
Good Work !
Clutters the page and detracts from the purpose which is selling the item on the page.
Lets get this right. Every Time I or the competitors that I have listed get Feedback A Drop Down tells me about it. I get annoyed when every second or so a Drop Down appears often for no reason. Why would I want another one and one that is likely to appear every day several times(unfortunately more for my competitors than for me). As northumbrian says if I want to look at my Feedback all I have to do is click.
PAYMENT & PROFIT
is our concern we do our very best then feedback looks after itself
Sounds interesting to me, not for myself but using it to look at other sellers feedback could highlight a product or price point that I am not competing with.
I can appreciate looking at a competitors feedback in total and looking to see if there is a product that is selling in numbers but I take it that the drop down will only be highlighting the latest feedback item and not the whole lot. Surely if you are interested in the whole lot then you will still have to call it up.
That’s how I interpret it also, however, the drop down will prompt me to look, not enough hours in the week these days so a nice reminder of a job that needs doing is a good thing in my book.
All very well but I have no idea what this has to do with google? I have never used RSS so I have no idea how to set it up or where to get a RSS from. A google search of RSS does not find a reader to download. Where am I supposed to get the URL for a web site’s RSS feed? This seems more hassle than it’s worth.
still dont see the point unless your selling for glory not money
feedback is unbalanced anyhow
we auto feedback on payment. it could be Gaddafi buying from us and leaving feedback we dont know or care
Now, when it tells me what DSRs are being left, that WILL interest me……
Are there any tools that link DSR’s to sale items and inform who left the DSR’s and for what?
