    having sold the item:

    "

    Hi there, I'm sorry but I have won a previous bid for the limited edition of this and completely forgot about it, I'm afraid I don't need this, very sorry for any inconvenience, thanks"

    lol. unlucky mate

    Second chance it to the second highest bidder.

    Report him for non-payment!

    So? Tell him tough luck, its a binding bid. Also - check his purchase history - has he won a previous bid?

    My Dad once had a message that started: "I'm sorry that I haven't paid, but the truth is I recently died in a car crash..."

    Just checked out his profile, he has a feedback of 6 all from within the last month (but all xbox games to be fair)

    time to play some hardball

    ask him to cover your fees and then relist, much easier and likely he'll go for it.

    Why make life harder for yourself? Is it really worth risking being negged over something so petty? It's not like everything isn't geared towards to the buyer on eBay so all you should do is contact the buyer tell them you are going to open a mutual dispute to cancel the sale and then just relist your item as it will be free relist since the sale didn't go through.

    Who cares if he won the same item cheaper or a better edition? You can't force the buyer to pay. Just move on and follow the advice above.

    we can't just sit back and let idiots like him become the norm on the site, it is already bad without letting him think that is cool

    This is what I'd do. Didn't think it is free to relist after transaction is cancelled though. (?)

    What you think ? Better than you send the game off, and he wants to get it refunded, totally Paypal will be on his side ?

    Better that he let you know in advance.

    Yes, you can, but its probably more effort than its worth....

    It's not just his feedback you want to check - you need to do an advanced search with his username and go to completed listings
    I would just file a non-paying bidder and get on with it, tbh - but I would find out if he's telling the truth so at least you can put him to shame when you message him.

    So what do you propose? How exactly would you go about forcing the buyer to pay? Going to file a case in the small claims court? Exactly. This is eBay we are talking about. If you're a seller on there, part of the requirements is to bend over, and if you get shafted from time to time, so be it.

    eBay is buyer focused, they don't give a  monkeys about sellers. Best to not rock the boat regarding protecting your hard earnt feedback/star ratings/possible suspension all because you decided to start a pointless fight with a buyer. Besides, there are a lot of nutters out there, what if the buyer  became incensed at this and decided to turn into an auction wrecker or turned up at the OP's house or pestered them with phonecalls? It's not worth the hassle. Go through the proper procedure and just sell it a second time.

    I'm gona find out his address, turn up at his door, and when he answers shove the game up his ****

    Buyer can't neg you if he doesn't pay........if he does then you get it removed.

    That only applies if the seller opens an unpaid item dispute and the buyer doesn't respond to it at all and then the seller closes it to reclaim their fvf's, that's the only time a buyer can't leave fb. Buyer is able to leave fb at all other times, regardless of if they paid or not.

    Yes, but it will be removed if you ask. They aren't allowed to leave feedback if they don't pay and if they do then they get another strike.

    And why wouldn't the seller open a NPB dispute?

    Asking eBay to remove unfair/unwarranted feedback is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. Good luck to anyone trying to get unfair feedback removed, if you can get past their army of robots that they call customer service bots and the foreign call centre staff who work on Live chat and actually get to speak to someone who understands your complaint, you are doing well.

    It's simple. You fill in the form.........they see they haven't paid.........they remove.

    If the seller opens an unpaid dispute the buyer has a chance to repond. The buyer could possibly lie to spite the seller and choose the option that they will be sending payment so that way the dispute is closed and the seller loses the opportunity to get their fvfs back. Chances are higher that the buyer might do this especially if they feel they've contacted the seller already and the seller is being unhelpful.

    By informing the buyer you will be opening a mutual cancellation dispute, they know what to expect, plus they don't get a strike for it and you get your fees back. I know it's unfair, however that's the sensible and easiest solution.

    Ebay has provision for buyers and sellers to cancel transaction. (waste of time and inconvenience though). NPB is for buyers who bid and don't pay (i.e. disappear). Buyer in question has made contact, so nothing wrong in cancelling the transaction mutually imho.




    OP go to goofbay.com, there's a tool on there which will show if the member really won the item on another auction.

    I haven't either, but then I haven't heard of any sellers taking the buyers to SCC. Doesn't mean it isn't an option though...

    These threads are starting to get annoying, you lot keep posting how useless ebay is yet you continue to use them. oO
