I think there needs to be an option when leaving feedback on an inquiry for “I inquired but declined to buy.” that way the buyer and seller can give at least a rating on the interaction whether or not the deal went through. See below for better examples.
- No, I inquired and declined to purchase.
- No, I inquired and still may purchase.
- No, I inquired but did not hear back.
- Yes, I purchased this item but have not received it yet (or a refund).
- Yes, I purchased this exact item and have already received it (or a refund).
