CQout - Frequently Asked Questions - How do I know if the person I am buying from is reliable?

1)- User Ratings

The User Rating facility is a mechanism through which buyers are encouraged after every purchase to report back to CQout on their experience of trading with that seller using a simple online form. This information is collated into a rating score for each seller. This is available to view online by all registered users and encourages sellers to maintain a satisfactory service to buyers. Negative user ratings may discourage buyers from trading with that person. 

Any User with 3 negative ratings will be suspended from trading on CQout.

By not allowing a user ID to change once it has been set up and associated with a specific address and credit card, CQout avoids the possibility of sellers with a poor reputation simply changing their user ID and starting all over again. Whilst this will undoubtedly deter some sellers from doing business through CQout, it protects the reputation, quality and security of the CQout Online Auctions trading environment.
