Get some cash back from amazon : the ugly way


Here is the story of how I got about 25% of my money back on a 9 bucks amazon order!Amazon

All I wanted was some cheap iPhone accessories, china made, nothing fancy. I got what I needed from a couple of amazon marketplace sellers. The First seller was ok, nothing unusual, but for the second one I had some problems.

First there was no tracking button next to the order in my amazon control panel, and second the order took a week longer to arrive than the items bought from the other seller.

I contacted the seller about these problems, I copied the original Email I send here:

Hi.

Why doesn’t this shipment have the tracking button like every other shipment from other amazon stores?

Please send me the tracking number of this shipment knowing that I have already recieved 4 other packages bought from other amazon stores at the same checkout

Regards

A day later a got a reply

Dear buyer,

This is your tracking number by USPS:
**********************

It arrives to you within 7 business days after we shipped it out normally.

Can you please get back to me if you have any problem with it?

Thank you very much.

Actually I got the package a couple of days later. When amazon Emailed me to post my feedback, I said what the hell, let’s leave some feed back. I left positive feed back for all the sellers I’ve ever bought from, except for this one.

Here is the feedback I left as I recall it.

“verrrry slow and expansive shipping, the product is ok, nothing more or less than what I expected”.

Hours later I got contacted by the seller, here is a copy of their email.

Dear buyer,
I am sorry that we didn’t satisfy you.
Can I refund you $2.00?
Can you please remove the feedback for me?

Thank you.
********

Its better than nothing, isn’t it?

Hi.
It works for me.
Just do the refund and instruct me on how to remove the feedback.
Regards

Actually I got the refund hours later

Dear buyer,
Thank you for getting back to me.

I have issued the partial refund to you.

As promised, I removed the feedback.

Done.
Good luck.
Bye

And everyone was happy

Thank you!

No wonder that almost all amazon marketplace crap sellers have 100% positive feedback. If I knew, I would leave negative feedback  to all sellers! but that would be mean, wouldn’t it?

What about you? Would you consider leaving negative feedback to a good seller to  get some money back?
