Question about eBay Auctions

1 Answer

I have sold a motorcycle on eBay, The winning bid being £400.00. The winning bidder phoned me last night and told me he did not have £400.00, And asked if he could pay in cash at the most £310.00. I did specify in the eBay add, Payment through Pay-Pal only. The bidder knowingly past the reserve price of £310.00. And pushed the bidding upto £400.00. Out bidding all others that had also past the reserve price. Dispite bidding £400.00 The bidder insists he has the right to have the bike at £310.00 only. He told me he has been an eBay member for three years. I have checked his eBay history, And infact he has only been an eBay member since August 2010, And has zero % feedback.

No, he has no right to request or do this. Do not agree with him, he is trying to pay less and he is wrong.

Sorry this is happening to you and this usually isn't the case so don't give up on eBay.

I would call or email eBay and tell them and they will allow you to relist it.

I want to take my stuff off of ebay I have listed cuz they r sold


To end a listing early and cancel all bids or sell to the high bidder:
  1. Go to My eBay > Selling and find the item.
  2. From the More actions drop-down menu, select End My Listing Early.
  3. If there are bids on your item, choose how you want to end your listing.
    • If there are 12 or more hours before the end of the listing, select Cancel bids and end listing early or Sell item to high bidder.
    • If there are fewer than 12 hours before the end of the listing, your only option is Sell item to high bidder. Note: If your item has no bids, you can skip this step
  4. Select the reason you're ending your listing early and click End My Listing.

How to add buyers to your block bidder/buyer list - eBay



Here's how you can add a member to your Blocked Bidder/Buyer List:
1. Click "Site Map" located in the upper right corner of most eBay pages
2. Click "Block Bidder/Buyer List" near the top of the "Selling Activities" header in the center column.
3. Click "Add an eBay user to my Blocked Bidder/Buyer List."
4. Enter the user ID or email address of the member you'd like to block.
5. Click "Submit."
Note: If you add a member to the block bidder list who has already bid on one of your items, you'll want to cancel their bid.

I am upset that I was told I had the winning bid right up to the last minute only to be told I lost the bid. I was watching up to the last minute and was to notified I needed to up my bid. This has ha


You didn't mention what auction site you are using, but I will answer as if you are using Ebay. It sounds like you are a victim of a sneaky but completely legal bidding technique called "sniping." Bidders often wait until the last 30 seconds or less of an auction is left before entering a bid, hoping to steal the win (which they often do).

As mentioned, this is legal and used on almost all auction sites. If you only use Ebay you have two main options. First, you can enter a larger final bid amount when you make your first and only bid. For example, let's say you are willing to pay up to $100 for an item but hope to get it for $70. You enter $100 and hope for the best. The advantage of doing this is you avoid overpaying for an item and don't have to watch the auction. The key disadvantage is other bidders make smaller bids and gradually push the total price up to your highest amount. The second option on Ebay is to wait until the very last part of an auction before entering your bid amount. This might get you the win, but you have to wait and watch the auction and sometimes scream when you still don't win, evan after getting up in the middle of the night!

You can also use automatic tools to enter a snipe bid. This is likely what other users who are winning the auctions are using. Some examples are ezsnipper.com, bidsnapper.com, esnipe.com, auctionsniper.com, and auctionstealer.com. There are many more. If you choose one of these other tools, make sure you read all the fine print to clearly understand (a) how much each bid will cost and any other costs, (b) the software will work with your auction site, and (c) what personal information is stored and how it is used (don't use it if you are not comfortable with the privacy details). I would recommend trying one that has a free trial and then bid on a smaller item as a test.

Finally, change how you look at auctions. They can be a lot of fun, as long as you set realistic expectations and have clear, personal bidding rules you follow...

What is second chance? I sold and item and it came up second chance.


Second chance means you can give the other people that placed a bid on your item a chance to bay it at the price they interred when they bid if you have another one to sell . Second chance can also be used if winning bidder does not pay.

I bid for an item on ebay it confirmed i was the high bidder till bidding ended but i didnt win the item i was bidding for why


somebody sniped your bid at the last second most likely unless Ebay took it off the last second. Check your "not won" box on the left of your summary column to check on all bids placed by clicking on the total bids showing that were made

I recently placed a bid on a used wintec saddle.I then saw another saddle i liked better.So i placed a bid on that too.I want to cancel bidding on the first saddle cause i'm now the highest bidder on...


As per eBay and a general rule, based on your inquiry -you can't retract or cancel a bid. When you place a bid, you agree to pay for the item if you're the winning bidder. When you place a bid it is considered a contract, and you're obligated to purchase the item. The best way is to contact the seller thru email or sand a message as early as possible. Based on my experience sellers will work with you if you communicate with them openly and honestly.

Hope this helps.

I am the highest bidder on an item that I no longer want, can I opt out of getting it??


Well if you look at the details when you bid, it says your bid is a legal contract to buy if you win.
Often if you send a note to the owner they will let you out of the bid if you ask nicely or offer them a small payment to get out of the deal.
Good luck and be careful when bidding

How do I delete a Bid I made on EBAY?


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.
Bid Retraction Form: https://signin.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn&UsingSSL=1&pUserId=&co_partnerId=2&siteid=0&ru=http%3A%2F%2Foffer.ebay.com%2Fws%2FeBayISAPI.dll%3FRetractBidShow%26guest%3D1&pageType=563
