As a general rule, you can’t retract or cancel a bid. Once you place a bid, you agree to pay for the item if you’re the winning bidder. However, honest mistakes sometimes occur. Review the conditions and time restrictions and if you feel you have a valid reason for retracting a bid, fill out aBid Retraction form.

For all who have a bid active on eBay and are now wanting to retract or cancel that bid...

Normally you can't cancel a bid, because by clicking on acceptance of bid placed, you entered into a contract and commitment to buy that item! But under certain circumstances, you can, I think yours applies?

Log in to your eBay account...

  • up in the upper left side, to the right of your Name,
  • Click on "Help & Contact"
    • 2 things here.
    • you can see the items your are bidding on or selling
  • either click on the item in question
  • scroll down to what you need to do - cancel or retract
or you can TYPE into the
  • "More Help Options" box
    • "Cancel Bid" or "Retract Bid"
  • Another way and the only way if your now within 12 hours prior to auction end, you need to : "Contact Seller" Explain your situation and be NICE and honest, they have the ability to cancel your bid from their side.
Good Luck

How do I cancel a bid on ebay

There are two ways to cancel bids on eBay. The first is for the seller to cancel a bid made on their auction. The second is for buyers to cancel bids they made on other's auctions. Both come with very specific rules that prohibit any auction misconduct.
Canceling a bid made by someone else.
Review the reasons allowed for canceling a bid. Go to the cancellation page if the bidder is someone whose identity you have not been able to confirm.

You should also access this page if the bidder asks you to cancel the bid, or if the item being auctioned is no longer for sale. Fill out the cancellation form. Give the reason that the bid is being cancelled. Use the cancellation feature sparingly, as the cancellation and your reason for cancelling, will be recorded in the bid history. b> Canceling a bid made on someone else's auction. b> Use the bid retraction form to cancel a bid you have made. Make sure your bid meets the criteria for a retraction. Retract if the bid price you entered was wrong, and then correct the bid amount. Retract your bid if the auction description was changed and you no longer want the item as it is now described. Use the retraction form if you need the reach the seller for some reason and their contact information is invalid. Retract your bid that was made before the final 12 hours of the auction, as the option will not be available after that time. Retract bids made during the last 12 hours, only within an hour of the bid. Use the retraction feature as rarely as possible, as the number of times you have retracted a bid will appear on your feedback numbers. Hope this helps.

The only way not to win the item is to hope someone out bides you. Or you can contact the seller and ask them to remove your bid. That is the only way out of the item/bid.

Good Luck

I purchased an item on ebay and i decided i did not want it any more and i made a bid how can i delete that off my list?

If you have made the winning or at present the highest bid then you have legally commited yourself to purchase the item. If however you are neither then you will have to wait until the auction is over and then delete it from your "didn't win" list
hope this helps

Want to retract a bid have doubled up on an itam

Here's how to retract your bid:

1. Click the "site map" link at the bottom part of the page.
2. Click the "Bid Retractions" link located under the "Buying Resources" heading near the bottom of the left-hand column. You may be asked to sign in.
3. Enter the item number, and select the reason for retracting your bid.
4. Click the "Retract bid" button.

You can find more information about retracting a bid here:
But please be sure that there is still more than 12 hours before the listing ends because if there is less you will no longer be able to retract the bid.
But you can only retract bids and not buy it now items. With regard to buy it now items, you will need to contact the seller and ask the seller to file the cancel transaction dispute.

Hope this helps. :)

Can i cancel or retract a bid as long as the bidding has not ended? if so, what is the procedure?

Yes, you can still retract a bid but only if there are still more than 12 hours left before the listing ends, if there's less than 12 hours you can no longer retract the bid but you need to contact the seller so that the seller can cancel the bid for you.

here's how you can retract your bid;

1. log in to your ebay account then click the site map and then scroll down and click bid retractions under Buying Resources on the left side.
2. then enter the item number in the box where it says "Item number of auction in question" and choose the reason, you can enter wrong amount.
3. then just click the retract bid button below

hope this helps.... please dont forget to rate! thanks!
