There is exactly no excuse at this point for poor packing, and I don't care if the seller just got started, they should be obligated to understand what secure packing means. Ebay needs to have it in their terms of service, that if sellers are not familiar with proper packaging methods, they are obligated to have items professionally packed for shipping, and further, that inadequate packing is legitimate cause for negative feedback on a transaction. When this happens to you: Write to the seller and politely inform them that the item arrived smashed to bits due to their poor packing, and you expect a 100% refund with no further hassles or you are going to leave scathingly negative feedback. They will probably reply "oh I didn't know!" and the correct response to that is, "you're selling in a public forum, you're OBLIGATED to know, or have it professionally packed."After you get the refund, leave "neutral" feedback, rating the seller high on all counts except whatever the one is that has to do with shipping. Rate that one zero, and in the little box for obligatory verbiage, write in something like this: "Item inadequately packed, arrived smashed to bits." That's called "teaching them a lesson" and over time if enough of us to it, sellers will learn.
