eBay Bad Sellers

There are plenty of “Bad-Buyers” websites,
for sellers to be adding to their “ignore list”,
but not much of (if any) “bad seller” lists,


From time to time you hear of a seller that sends partial-delivery,
Or even avoid sending anything at all (especially if you place a very small order),
After two or three months when you’ll send them a message,
They will act *all “surprised”* and if you are lucky you might get your money back,
that is, if they will bothered to answer you at all,
and it wasn’t too long until you’ve opened a case with either eBay/PayPal.

why wouldn’t you just avoid that scenario at all?
apparently my other article JavaScript Ninja – Crowd Wisdom eBay Enhancements was so popular, that I’ve actually got address by few of my blog-readers,
sharing some ‘horror’-stories about recent purchases,
We’ve had a new idea:

A seller blacklist

apparently you CAN block sellers, but it requires some accessing to eBay advance-search,
any copy-pasting a long-list of bad-sellers with an “exclude” category. Too complex for everyday use.

Here comes the JavaScript Magic :]

javascript:(function(window, document, search_for, ignore_from, search_url, blacklist_sellers) {
  if("" === search_for || null === search_for) return undefined;                  /* no query - quit */
  ignore_from = ("" === ignore_from || null === ignore_from) ? "" : ignore_from;  /* normalize input */
  
  /* clear up tab's content first */
  window.stop(), document.execCommand("Stop"), document.clear(), document.close(), document.open(), document.close();
  
  blacklist_sellers = encodeURIComponent( blacklist_sellers.join(",") );
  search_for        = encodeURIComponent(search_for);
  ignore_from       = encodeURIComponent(ignore_from);
  search_url        = search_url.replace("##BLACKLIST_SELLERS##", blacklist_sellers)
                                .replace("##SEARCH_FOR##",        search_for)
                                .replace("##IGNORE_FROM##",       ignore_from)
                                ;
  /* apply URL change */
  window.location.assign(search_url)

and- a bookmarklet version that you can made into a clickable button,

javascript:(function(window,document,search_for,ignore_from,search_url,blacklist_sellers){if(""===search_for||null===search_for)return undefined;ignore_from=""===ignore_from||null===ignore_from?"":ignore_from;window.stop(),document.execCommand("Stop"),document.clear(),document.close(),document.open(),document.close();blacklist_sellers=encodeURIComponent(blacklist_sellers.join(","));search_for=encodeURIComponent(search_for);ignore_from=encodeURIComponent(ignore_from);search_url=search_url.replace("##BLACKLIST_SELLERS##",blacklist_sellers).replace("##SEARCH_FOR##",search_for).replace("##IGNORE_FROM##",ignore_from);window.location.assign(search_url)}(top,top.document,prompt("Search For..","good"),prompt("Ignore From\n(for 2 or more use a comma)","bad,ugly"),"http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_in_kw=1&_sacat=0&_udlo=&_udhi=&LH_BIN=1&LH_ItemCondition=3&_ftrt=901&_ftrv=1&_sabdlo=&_sabdhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_stpos=&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=1&_fss=1&_fsradio=%26LH_SpecificSeller%3D1&_saslop=2&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_sadis=15&_ipg=200&_sasl=##BLACKLIST_SELLERS##&_nkw=##SEARCH_FOR##&_ex_kw=##IGNORE_FROM##",["1stangeleyes","5starsvipstore","7-39158","12deeping","47st.photo","51buyworld","168come","av-rf","babastoreong","beautyzz2009","benjeans2015","bessky_store","best4noone","bib-queen","bitb99","boss7321","btlife","buyincoins_au","cagoqra","cherrystore2012","clickkey","craftmentools","cskwin2015","elec-mall","elgb16","fashion-trench","fashionwomensale","flyingtiger0104","fmdinis","gelivable.2u","good4deal999","gracefulvara","green-the-world","guoqca0","haoadp123","happygreenshopteam","happyness8966","healthnbeautyexpress","herminidixo0","horse3109","iluckydog","incellworldukltd","jinbostore","jinshan2013","kingsing6688","koala-bear-au ","lovelyhome2015","mhestore2009","misszhou2013","misszt1983","my_dream1960","nihaomayun","olyhome","onedot1","onsalezone2012","past-prices","phoenix1900","roseforyou_nice","sale4women","service2worldwide","shuli8882012","smartphonestation","sseariver2009","starsmile5","stungun112","sunnyshop06","tiger.vzu","tinaforyou","toquedarte","traveleroutdoor","vovotrade_top","wholesaleuk","yur1924","zysysy2012"]));

What it does?
– asks you for your search term,
– asks you for “ignore from” – words (you can include infinite amount of phrases, separated by comma)

the script above combines a list of bad sellers with your entered data,
and execute a search, instead of you, entering the whole thing by hand.

Hope it help :]


You may also find it useful to add those to the buyer block-list:
http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?BidderBlockLogin
it is comma-separated (no space and no new-line needed), and you can maintain total of up until 5,000 entries..
