Re: Now I'm PISSED!! (Ebay BS)

i had a couple of auctions end listings early on me within a span of a few days...from different sellers!!!
if the auction has a best offer and i give you an offer, don't yank the listing!!! i was just trying to save a couple bucks. i was willing to pay the full amount of the auction, but these idiots make it harder on themselves if they just don't follow the rules.

I always thought it was like that but this has happened to me a couple of times now, so annoying!

Re: Now I'm PISSED!! (Ebay BS)

I had that happen once, too. Couldn't find my bid either.

Here's what ebay says:

http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/manage_bidders_ov.html

Basically, all they have to do is say that you contacted them and asked them to cancel your bid. It also says you can cancel bids when you end an auction early. Here's what it says about that:

http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/ques...dlist-now.html

As far as the reasons you can use:

http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/end_early.html

So basically, as long as there are more than 12 hours left on your auction, you're free to end it and cancel all bids with no restrictions. The "reasons" are pretty damn vague.

So basically, for $0.50 I can list my guitar on eBay and then entertain any offline offers I want, then end the listing with no restrictions. Pretty stupid.

It didn't used to be that way.......if a bid was over the reserve, the sale was locked in. An auction couldn't be ended if there were ANY bids over the reserve.

The e-mail I got from ebay said my bid was cancelled. If I wanted to know the reason why, I had to check the bid history of the auction. Since the auction was cancelled, there was no bid history to check. Another funny thing is that there's no history of my bid in "My Ebay"..........go figure??

I know what you mean about the UCGR's...I have my screaming eagle....by far the best guitar in my house. If I didn't have that, I wouldn't be wanting a JEM first..........but since I do have it..........IT'S JEM TIME!!!!!!

Re: Now I'm PISSED!! (Ebay BS)

Well, there's some new light on this subject.

One of our own members won the first auction and has the guitar in his possession!!

Now the question is.....why is it listed again if they don't have it???
