Thank you AzHousePro for adding iTrader as tremendous benefit to the forum and an excellent mod. I have two recommendations to increase the popularity of this service.
1) Allow us, under User CP -> Edit Your Details, under Instant Messaging (or create new category) add an option for AZ members to add their eBay ID. AZ members who may not have done business with an iTrader can check the eBay ID in addition to their iTrader profile.
2) Add Dispute Resolution to iTrader profiles. In either case, the buyer or seller may click "dispute resolution" and choose from a list of fair solutions (cost to repair, full refund, partial refund). Either party may deny dispute resolution. If both parties agree, they are bound by the terms of the arbitrator. Dispute status (open, closed) and reason should be posted on both parties' profiles under the negative comment.
Did a trade deal with him and it was a great and smooth transaction. Had a good conversation on the phone a couple times and a guy I would def recommend buying from or just giving a call to hear some good stories.
First time dealing with this member, who left timely positive feedback.
In the past, the rating did not increase when I have dealt with a member previously, which is understandable. But this is not the case with my most recent transaction.
This is not my first transaction since the forum change, but the first to not update the feedback score.
