If you need to specify a collection time then you need to put this in the listing,You cannot contact everyone who bids on an item as you dont know which one will win,

To be honest the person is 200 miles away I think they are messing me about and they dont have alot of feedback either, so want to make sure he is a legitamate bidder because last time i got stuck with paying the fees, I dont want a repeat of that

If the worst does happen, u should know that if u lodge an unpaid item dispute ur fees should eventually get returned

Good luck with it:thumbsup:

If you really dont want this person to bid on your item go to your ebay home page and click on help ( top right)
then search "cancel bids"
follow the instructions and also block the bidder,
