eBay help...

Sold a game today for £22 on eBay, which is about £10 more than it should have gone.. I was happy. Anyway, received an email shortly after saying that their daughter had been bidding on their account and its a mistake as they already have the game?!?

Oldest trick in the book? - Where do I stand as sellers can no longer leave negative feedback! Pffft!

Any help on what to do? - Yes, I sent a "nice" email after a 13 hour shift at work today

sell to the next highest bidder

mark it down to experience. List them as a banned buyer and re-list it. Or try to offer to next best bidder if you like. Nothing else for it.

u can open a unpaid item before you relist and get the fees back

I think not being able to leave buyers bad feedback can be a little bad for the non payers though as they can just say they dont want it!

I've decided to offer it the other bidder, he obviously isnt interested.

You can also say they've entered a binding contract and must pay for your item otherwise you'll report them to eBay.

Did that, but a long drawn out process for £20 is too much hard work for me.. in the end, they only had 15 or so feedback so it's not a huge loss if they lose their account

Think I have one coming too.

Buyer joined yesterday, paid over the odds, no contact since auction ended around 4 hours ago.

Just something you have to live with on Ebay, I'm afraid.

I've had this happen to me twice this week.

Theres he-haw you can do about it, other than wait 7 days to open an unpaid item dispute and close it on the 8th day so that you get your Final Value Fee credited back to you, but you will lose your listing fee unless you sell it on the relist. Plus the buyer will get an unpaid item strike.

doesnt mean a lot I know, but taking away the ability to neg a buyer was the worst thing they could do.

The other high bidder had 300 something feedback, so thought they'd be more legit?

If they dont buy with my offer, can I.. third chance it, etc? As theres a few bids I'd happily accept.

You can second chance to as many as you like, you can do it right now, the first to accept it gets it (i think).

However you can only do it once to each person

Yeah when you look at the bidding list it gives you the option to offer to multiple bidders

Oh right, Im sure I read that if sending multiple second chance offers, you have to have thay many of whatever your selling.. I thought, if they didnt accept it, then move to next etc.

True, my second chance offers are very rarely taken up.

the only problem is you will still have to pay for selling it to the highest bidder unless you do a non-payer alert:oops:
