I am not certain where this topic belongs, so feel free to move it if it’s incorrectly placed.
I want to purchase eleven (11) Gig Photos; one (1) per Gig. The Seller charges $5 per Gig Photo, which is $55 total. I want to place an order for $55.
The Seller, however, wants me to purchase her/his Gig photo Gig 11 times. For the avoidance of doubt, this means each order will have its own Order#, and by extension, the completion of each order will create an opportunity to review the Gig.
My concern is that this is a form of review manipulation. My rationale there is that there is no reason for someone to purchase 1 Gig 11 times unless that person intends on leaving 11 reviews on the one Gig… and there is no reason to do THAT since custom orders exist. Clearly, with the 1 order, only 1 review would be forthcoming, and 11 reviews are better than 1.
What’s the official position on this practice?
