My wife bid on a Cabin Bed and mattress on Ebay, Seller has 0 Feeback.
Opening bid is £50, so put a max bid in of £120.
Seler gets asked what would she take for it and answer was about £110.
Auction ends, no one else bids and in theory we won it for £50.

I ask when we can pick it up and pay cash for it.
get a reply saying its been water damaged, stored in the garage!, so the sale is off.

In other words it did not make the money , so they had to bullsh*t their way out of the sale.

In nearly 10 years on Ebay i think i have heard most of the excuses when you win something that does not make the price that the seller wanted.

I hate these T*ssers.

que sera sera
did you put in a complaint to ebay? Surely the seller should have put in a minimum price they would have sold for?

Simler thing happend to Me once. I brought an laptop for spares and in the pic the laptop looked good. Anyway cut a long story short I got it cheaper then the price he said he was looking for via email. When I got the laptop delivered it was bent and damaged etc.

Good job I only wanted it for parts :proud:

All sorted as far as im concerned.

Left Negative feedback for seller ( now has a -1)

Reported the whole transaction to customer services at ebay.

They said that if the seller was to file a NPB claim against me they would deal with it and any bad feeback (i know they cant leave me a Neg.) would be removed.

Result!

I thought ebay could force him to complete the deal as it is a legal binding contract that can only be cancelled if both parties agree?
