I like ebays rating system ok,,,,,but if we are doing local sales where we meet the person and sale the item in person withing a short time,,,,,,,and the buyer gets to inspect the item and hand us the cash,,,,,do we really need that rating system,,,,,,i like the rating system on ebay because i cant inspect the item before purchase,,,,,,,,,to me the rating system on offerup is more about dealing with the person,,,,,,,not about the item
I read these comments before and should have responded sooner. I thought you would have had more feedback. I think what you did was a good thing. Something done out of kindness. Whoever you agreed to pick-up, must have communicated with you, correct?
Believe it, or not, there have been a number of people who've come to the forums asking, "how can I change a rating. I accidentally gave 1 star and meant to give 5". Some people have made mistakes in rating people. Some realize it, others don't. Did you have any further communication with that person?
On the other hand, if you never met the person, how do you know if the correct person showed up and the toy was gone? Taken by someone else.
You did a good thing for someone and there's a good chance, it's just a mistake on their part.
