    Default Do people really care about trader rating?

    Just wondering about this this week, since I've bought and sold things from beyonders lately.

    Does anyone care about trader ratings? Do you look at them before you buy something?

    I do only because mine > rage2

    But seriously, would you make deals with a new account that had zero trader rating and no posts?

    If I see the person has numerous positive trade reviews and zero negatives, it makes me not worry at all about dealing with them or thinking I might get screwed over. I would probably think the same about a long time member though even if they didn't have trader ratings. New user + no trade rating and I wouldn't deal with them.

    Same here, because mine > yours.

    I would, but I would be more wary and inspect the item further. We all start off somewhere.

    shit I probably have half the trader rating I should have. I rarely get a trader rating anymore. I look at them to see if more reputable members have dealt with the person.

    What defines a "more reputable member"?

    someone who at least somewhat regularly posts, I think, as opposed to trader rating.

    When people ask questions here and I don't recognize the OP username, I look up previous posts. If they are someone who only comes here to ask questions and/or sell stuff, I troll

    I stopped caring like 5 years ago. If I insisted on getting one for the past 5 years, I'd be well over 100 I am sure. I also haven't really bought/sold on here in a while I feel, which makes me feel like someone should buy/trade my watch I got for sale on here right now, so I can get a trader rating.

    Trader rating is just another meaningless number in the grand scheme of things.

    I use it, but i feel the marketplace as become much less active over the years. Would I deal with a newbody? Sure, but I would treat it like a typically kijiji transaction. I also look at when the last time a transaction was done. No transactions in a few years and I basically treat them as a '0'

    I don't know that it's less active. I've both bought and sold items in the last week, and I don't even both posting to Kijiji unless beyond fails me.

    I'll be sure to not deal with NoPulp based on his shitty trader rating.
