I'm really pissed that the seller included signature confirmation. Now I need to sit around waiting for this thing when it should've been delivered in the morning first thing. Now I have to worry if I miss it.
What's the point in signature confirmation? You already have the tracking and can tell if it was delivered to the right address.
I'm seriously considering leaving a bad review on this seller (I don't like that he didn't ship right away and waited a day extra but the signature confirmation really ticks me off.
What do you think I should do about this?
Wait...to get this straight you're thinking of giving a bad review because:
1. The seller waited a WHOLE day to ship it.
2. He requests signature confirmation.
I got that about right? Do you even realize how petty you sound right now? I mean, no offense, but yeah that's kinda petty.
First of all, you don't know what is going on in that person's life. Maybe they work two jobs and missed a chance to hit the post office to send your precious item out. Maybe they got sick, or a family member got sick or hurt and they weren't able to get it sent off. Any number of things could have happened that delayed them A SINGLE DAY. That's not nearly enough to send someone bad feedback. You sound like someone that nobody should ever ever sell to.
And secondly, signature confirmation protects them AND it helps you out. Think about it. Say your package gets delivered, but to the wrong person. Someone is hanging outside your place and they are like "oh yeah, that's me!" and they accept your package. Now without signature confirmation, there's no way to know who accepted it, however according to the tracking info, it was accepted.
Now with signature confirmation, if someone signs for it, you have the name. Now if it's someone scamming, sure they may use a fake name or whatever, or hell, write your name. However in most cases it may get delivered to a neighbor or someone up the block. With the signature confirmation, they can write you back and say "hey, so and so signed for this" and then hopefully you're like "oh, okay, I know that person" and then you go get it.
I've had that happen a few times as I live in an apartment building.
Just calm down and relax. If you give negative feedback based on that, you should be bounced from ebay for good. Just being honest here.
