is that what you would do? will i be charged anything?

only initial listing fee

or when the buyer wins , message them and give them a chance to pull out as you can then always offer it to next higest bidder

But if watch gonna sell for a lot , i would cancel listing and get it fixed first, otherwise you leaving yaself open to a chargeback, dispute w/e if buyer cant get it fixed

if i do that and no one wants to go ahead, will i then be charged a final value fee?

its easilly sorted out - it needs a service but its quite expensive. if id known i would have said this on the listing - typical!

If you know anyone else with an Ebay account they could ask you a question and you could put this info in the reply. Then at least it would appear in the listing and give people some idea of the problem. Just a thought.

do you think its better to relist?

Entirely up to you. If you want to do the question thing, pm me the item number and how you would like me to word it and I'll be happy to ask.

done, thank you x

I would cancel the auction,Even if you were to edit it people may have already bidded and may not see the edit/question before it finshes, Even if you tell the winning bidder before they pay you will come across as a conman trying to sell something broken,

All done.
Your very welcome.
Hope it helps

I'd relist, saves you the hassle

If someone snipes at the last minute and wins on that listing they have a valid calim for SNAD against you. I don't understand why it's still active really :thinking:



thanks for your concern but ive got it sorted. appreciate you help :thumbsup:
