Feedback sobre uma venda

Once a sale (or purchase) is fulfilled, the Seller may leave his/her feedback on the transaction and qualify the counterparty.
When the transaction is qualified as fulfilled, "custom" and "me1" shipments show that the product has been already delivered; therefore, bear in mind that this process should be started only if you are sure that the product has been delivered to the buyer. This way when the seller qualifies, a message will be sent to the buyer asking him/her about the sale and requesting confirmation of such sale product delivery.
Currently, this action is valid only for tracking shipment delivered statuses, that is, it has no impact on the involved Seller's reputation; it should be always applied to change status to delivered in sales without Mercado Envíos, moving these sales to the completed lists.
