Default Ebay question - first time buyers

Haven't dealt with any previously, but I have a 0 bidder on my current crop. Should I worry? I've been getting a large amount of NPB of late. I'd love to hear from the resident feebay experts who have had to do business with first timers. Are they fairly risky or do they seem to pay? I'm thinking of using the feedback blocking below 10 service.

i mean, i was a new buyer at one point, as were all of us.

unless they 0 feedback bidder is bidding very strangely, i guess you should let it ride. Are they doing anything strange?

Don't ask me how much I want to offer. Come with a price in mind. If I don't want it or think it's worth that, I will let you know.

Everyone has to start somewhere. It seems I get as many NPB with hundreds if not thousands of feedbacks as I do new users. Also, I don't don't think it's possible to block 0 feedback bidders, only those with a negative number, which is impossible unless they have never bought anything and received negatives as a seller. Just my .02

No not really, and I agree we all need to start somewhere. I've just been getting so many non payers of late. It's made me a bit gun-shy. I appreciate the comments.

I've had more issues with members with over 1k feedback than I've had with 0 feedback.

As stated above you can't auto block anyone with 0 or more feedback.cancelling their bid would be the only option unless they snipe.

Ive got one too that is bidding strangely only in that he seems really REALLY determined to win my auction. He must have set his max bid at $150 plus since he's been leading the way for almost the entire thing. Seems like a noobie thing to do, so i'm letting it ride as well.

i would send him a message and make sure he plans to pay if he wins. if you don't get a response, remove his bids.
