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.
