Default Amazing eBay situation....

Buyer buys an item off me more then a week ago.

On August 2nd, I send him this message because I am going to Baltimore for the National...

"Hello, Im going out of town for a few days Sunday. Are you planning on paying before then so I can ship before I leave town?"


Buyer then responds with....


"Hi,
Can we please cancel this transaction? I was planning on paying for this item with the money that I made from the sale of an item, but now it looks like the buyer is not going to pay. I greatly apologize for the inconvenience, and if you would like me to remit some small fee to cover your time lost, I will gladly. I know it sucks and I'm really sorry, but I'm sure that you already know that by canceling a transaction, you get all of your fees refunded to you. Again, I'm really, really sorry for the inconvenience. It looks like I'm going to have to do the same thing."




Of course I wasn't going to cancel the auction....

Case was opened and today I get this email...


Why would you open an unpaid item case? Did you not understand the predicament that I told you I am in??? The buyer didn't just "magically" pay for my item... Ridiculous. I am still not going to pay for this item... because I CAN'T! And now, I'm never going to shop with your store again! Unbelievable. You're absolutely the WORST. And you can expect a negative feedback.





What a bum...

Block him... eBay user is trustymachete17

Blocked, thanks. Be sure to forward the message to eBay & you should be able to have that removed if he were to leave negative feedback.

I don't think you can leave negative if you don't pay for an item... Correct?

No disrespect, but why wouldn't you cancel the item? If I was him, I would pay, return it, get a refund, and then leave you a bad feedback. Consumers have all the power on eBay.

Well first of all, you don't bid on something you don't have the funds for and also that's a REALLY fast way to get blocked...

I understand that, but the guy was a man about it. Told you the truth. In today's economy you don't know what he is working with. Plus the deal that fell thru, I'm sure he was way cooler about it than this seller was.

It doesn't matter if he was "cooler" about it than the OP was. He bid on an item which means he is a legal "contract" according to ebay. Didn't get paid from another buyer and so he's not going to pay the OP. That doesn't make the situation right.

I understand that. But as a seller why risk it? What if the buyer does everything I suggested? He could of just "2nd chance'd" it to the next highest bidder. Now he's got to wait another 7 days, or so, to sell the card.
We, in this hobby, shouldn't try to get over on another person. Take their word for it. It's all we have.

Me, I would just cancel the transaction and move on. Sometimes financial situations change for the worse, especially in this economy. I'm not made of money. If I bid on something and a big expense comes up, than I may not be able to pay. I totally understand the case the buyer is in right now. I think the seller deserves a negative for not being kind and considerate to the customer. I go by the golden rule: "Do one to others as you've had them do unto you." I tell you for sure, slapping an unpaid item case on the customer is one good way to not get repeat business.

If you are buying cards with money that will be needed in the case of an emergency, you are doing it wrong.

I can't believe anyone would take the buyer's side in this argument. What you're saying, then, is that it's okay to break a contract if you find that your money is needed elsewhere. Is that really the kind of ethic that anyone should believe or teach?

If you don't have the available funds to pay for an item, then show some restraint by not bidding. If there's even the slightest chance that an emergency or unforeseen circumstance could cause you to be unable to pay, then you shouldn't be spending your money on any unnecessary items.

When I see these kinds of posts, it makes it pretty clear to me why Americans on average have such huge debt loads, and why so many people are in financial difficulties right now. This lack of understanding when it comes to managing personal finances is far too prevalent.

How can he not afford to pay for this item?? He won 41 other auction, wonder how he could afford to pay for all of them??

If you have to wait for a payment from someone in order to pay for something else,you should not be buying anything. I have my doubts about the guy's story,but I think the OP is completely justified in his actions. You commit to buying something,you pay for it,no excuses. Just my opinion.
