It's completely ridiculous and totally hincky for an item purchased today, with feedback left today, that says:

"even though it took me a while to receive I am very happy with my purchase"

"definitely worth the wait"

"It's beautiful! I just got it in the mail. Definitely worth the wait!!!"

"This is my favorite shop at etsy. Seller is very honest and the products are great. I keep coming back for more"

"great communication. It took 3 weeks to get the item wich is great, considering it's all handmade. <3 it"

I don't normally jump into these threads, but I am thoroughly disgusted by such underhanded business practices.
I wish someone would tell me what you are talking about.

My mum always said I was a nosey little monkey.
So the point of this thread is what?
If you want to be featured etc, you need to be prepared for a sudden large increase in orders.

Which is a very good thing to bear in mind.
Totally agree Ivy.. Sitting here shaking my head in disbelief... starting from second page of feedback, a lot of the good feedback was left the same day as the sale - very bad business. this about a reseller?
y T from MySweetieBean says
I think I figured out who you are referring to.

Sadly, it appears the seller is gaming the feedback system (shilling) to boost her feedback up, because it was abysmal earlier and suddenly there are 5 pages of transactions, all sold today, same listing title, with feedback left today as well.

It's too bad she got in over her head, but it's not cool to game your feedback either.

I reported to marketplace integrity.

Can't believe this is being outed in an open forum...
I'm wondering the same thing...why not just report the shop?
I would love the opportunity to get that kind of business!
