Worst Feedback Record on Etsy?

10:40 PM Wednesday, April 22, 2009

I've always wondered how bad someone's feedback would need to be before Etsy closed up someone's shop or account.

These examples show it might be <strong>alot</strong>. Who has the worst feedback record on Etsy?

*The Buyer <a href="http://www.etsy.com/feedback_public.php?user_id=5303490">BeadworkPaula</a> has 156 negatives!!! Really Etsy?!?
*The Seller <a href="http://www.etsy.com/feedback_public.php?user_id=12140">gemmafactrix</a> has 21 negatives and 56 neutrals.


  1. the seller tinymeat has 118 neutral and 59 neg, but 3552 positive. most of his neutrals and negs have been for really slow shipping as apparently he makes most of his wallets to order. cool shop, though, and a very successful seller.


  2. anyway - nice how they let buyers order and order without paying, but they close highly successful shops for one, unproven, report of a $4 item not being shipped, with no confirmation of anything. Wait, no, they do that like 20 times in a row, each time on a Friday at 4 pm before they go for their precious 'weekend'.

    'We value weekends' Christ, Kalin is a loser.

    BTW, I don't even think tiny meat makes his wallets to be honest.


  3. Crap. Did you read the feedback (left for sellers) on BeadworkPaula? Someone needs some meds.

  4. That feedback for BeadworkPaula's crazy.

    Even the posititve feedbacks say no payment/don't buy from me again, should be a neg.


  5. I almost bought some things from gemmafactrix, but between her feedback and her reputation for liking to start trouble off-Etsy, I had no problem convincing myself that I could find something else I liked even more. Nobody's perfect, but some people are more worth the bother than others.

    And that BeadworkPaula is something else! That her account goes untouched while other people get shut down over things they didn't even do is amazing. What's her secret?


  6. It's not just the feedback that was left for BeadworkPaula...the BEST part is what she says in return. Check out "Feedback left for others". Priceless.

  7. Gemmafactrix is on an extensive vacation right now yet didn't close her shop. WTF?


  8. Krakenmosaics -- woah, you aren't kidding! And wow. . .check out page 9 of gemmafactrix's buyer feedback, about 11 down. Guess who's there?


  9. Some people on Etsy scare me.

  10. You know, I've been poking around Google and it seems our Miss Paula is considered some sort of bead expert, can't find where she actually sells any work, though. She has written a number of articles for about.com and is one of their "experts". She either needs many meds or has some sort of vendetta going against Etsy. maybe she previously owned a store under another name and got kicked off? Wasn't there some bead person who was also selling cookies who wasn't making either? may poke around more for fun......

  11. That was Ullja, I remember the hoopla.

    A couple of sites that discuss it (read the comments):

    For bad feedback, check out ChocolatVintage. 42 positives, 11 negatives - and if you read the comments, even some of her positives should have been negative.


  12. I had no idea Gemma had been banned, I thought she was just doing a self-banning...lol

    What was the drama surrounding that? I don't remember anything going on with her involved...


  13. Oh man, I've been waiting for payment from a buyer for about a week now.. it's beadwork paula! I wish I'd seen this site earlier.


  14. Do you mean Featured Seller Gemmafactrix:

    or 70 Time Frequent Front Pager Gemmafactrix:


  15. Hey did anyone notice that her shop is empty...but could just be b/c she is at camp?

    Hey did anyone notice that her shop is empty…but could just be b/c she is at camp?

    my guess is she's moving her stuff to her postcards from camp store, which Ive flagged twice now because she doesnt disclose her other store.
    I also guess that if they finally DO force her to disclose it, she'll just have admin close the gemmafactrix store so no one can see her feedback (since we dont have to disclose closed/deleted stores)...
