    Ebay



    not happy!!!!!!
    I was bidding on a putter and winning,only a few hours left and the item vanishes from the site. Ok ,no problem with that ,sold elsewhere was my assumption . WRONG . The reason given was no bids on the putter and was removed to put back on sale again .
    there was two bids on the putter and although it was really low in bidding there were bids placed.
    Have I got a reason to be miffed at this ,or am I being a spoilt child because I didnt get my putter for next to nothing.

    surely if an item has had bids placed that the seller cant just remove the item stating no bids were placed as an excuse.
    bad form imo.
    you thoughts would be welcome on this
    common sense is so rare it should be classed as a super power.

    He should have set a reserve on the putter. Cant blame him for not wanting it to go for next to nothing though.

    Bad idea. I never bid on auctions with a reserve set, can't be bothered messing about with multiple bids to discover what the reserve is. On occasions I've messaged the seller & they've told me!

    When I sell, I set the opening bid to the lowest amount I'm prepared to accept & note "no reserve" prominently in the description.

    Re: Ebay

    Chances are you would not have got it for next to nothing. Most bids that win are put in during a frantic final minute then crazy last 10 seconds.

    Thats before you even think about gettinf sniped which is auto bid application.

    The seller got cold feet thinking his putter is going to sell for next to nothing so pulls it but as us ebay uses know items generally make their money right at the end of the auction.Example; had a set of Titleist 690mb irons that were pottering in the 40 £ mark for ages only for them to make £120 within the last 2 minutes,I would have accepted £80 for them .

    Re: Ebay

    Dont think you can cancel an auction in the last 12 hours.

    Expect a bit of nonsense with buying/selling on ebay and you wont get disappointed.

    I sold my Cally irons recently, winning bid was £138, buyer had a sob story about waiting to get paid, anyway gave him a day to think about it and he cancelled as I could sense he would. Didn't stress me as I'd had a good bit of interest. 2nd chance offer wasn't taken so had to relist. You'd think it would be a pain relisting but re-auctioned a few days later, went for £198.

    On that occassion was happy original buyer welched. Silver linings...

    Ah! The joys of Ebay!

    Sniping is the way to go!

    Set your max price and no worries about getting hooked in a bidding war!

    not had particular issues with selling stuff either - it all happens in the last few seconds (with snipes!) these days!

    I really like the way eBay works now.

    Type in your max offer and leave it. You either win or you don’t.

    Re: Ebay

    It's great sometimes, sent in a very cheeky offer on a Patagonia jacket earlier I'd been watching and even apologised for the derisory offer, however buyer accepted, sometimes any cash is better than holding stock I suppose. Happy days.................. as long as it is Patagonia and not Patagucci or whatever.
