    Flea-bay query

    The rules on this are alittle dubious to say the least but can sellers just cancel all bids at the last minute ??

    I had an email saying it was cancelled and to check the bid history to see the excuse.

    Found this .........

    Explanation:The seller ended the listing early and cancelled all bids.

    Can he/she/they do this ?? I really want the item and reckon he should send it to me free now

    If you cannot complete your listing as planned, you can end your listing via the End My Listing Early Form. Remember to select "Cancel bids and end the listing early". All bids will be cancelled automatically and the bidders informed. Valid reasons for ending a listing early include:

    You accidentally listed the same item more than once. Please note that Insertion Fees are generally non-refundable. However, if you accidentally listed the same item twice, please ask if we can make an exception.

    You made an error in the starting price or reserve amount.

    You made an error in the listing that you couldn't correct. Please note that Insertion Fees are generally non-refundable so you should try to Edit Your Listing instead of closing it early.

    You lost or broke the item.

    Items have been listed on your account without your consent. See Account Theft for more information.

    We strongly discourage sellers to end listings early because it undermines the trust buyers have in the eBay platform. eBay buyers are told that their bids are binding. Equally, buyers expect the auctions they bid on to conclude successfully.

    Ending a listing early for the following reasons is prohibited as it is considered fee avoidance:

    Cancelling bids and ending a listing early because the reserve price hasn't been met to avoid reserve fees. See Reserve Price Policy.

    Cancelling bids and ending a listing early in order to sell the item off-eBay. You should be aware that as well as avoiding fees, you risk fraud by selling items off the eBay website. If a member writes to you to ask you to sell away from the eBay website, please report them to us.

    Note: It is acceptable for sellers to end a listing early and sell an item to the highest bidder at their current bid price. Bidders are permitted to contact sellers with requests to end a listing early for this reason; however, sellers are under no obligation to do so. To end a listing and sell to the current high bidder (at their current high bid), go to the End My Listing Early form and select "Sell to the high bidder".

    You can't end a listing less than 12 hours before the end of the listing if the item has a winning bid:

    You may cancel bids, but not end the item unless you are selling the item to the high bidder. To do this, go to the End My Listing Early form and select "Sell to the high bidder".

    You can't add to or change the item description.

    If the item becomes unavailable during the last 12 hours of the auction (for example, you break it) you must contact the high bidder or buyer and explain what happened. You can get a Final Value Fee Credit if you and the buyer must confirm you mutually agreed to withdraw from the purchase.

    What gets me is it is all 'if you bid then its legal' crap, then they have the ability to pull it without an excuse basically

    Agreed. Yet, you have to go through hoops and kill your first born if you want to retract a bid you've made.

    You have to remember, you're not going to win a Ferrari for a fiver, no matter how legal it is.

    But yes I’m guilty of being a dirty ebayer with a bag of tricks also, the ole friend bidder and what not

    Yet I still have 100% and 5 star rating
