I've just received this from a seller

"Please leave feedback for me on eBay and I'll do the same for you.
Take this opportunity now and help build a better eBay community."


I bought 3 items from this berk - he chucked them all into the same
parcel and charged me full whack for postage, �13. One item was wrong
and I've returned it (at my cost) and despite promises from him, got
the
right order & no free extras or my postage paid.


Sounds like feedback extortion to me

Eh? He just said "leave feedback" not "leave positive feedback". I would
do as he asks so other buyers are aware.

Next time, ask for postage to be combined before you pay.

Isn't that a standard feedback reminder issued by eBay?

If he didn't offer combined postage and you didn't ask for it you can't
really expect it.

Did you ask for a refund of postage since you received the replacement
item? Maybe quote SOGA at him.

Yes it is. No one with a brain would refer to an Ebay community.

SOGA doesn't guarantee return postage to be paid.
