Default So sick to my stomach right now

So, as you may or may not have known, I listed a large chunk of my collection in one big lot on ebay.

Well, it ended this morning.

Brand new, 0 feedback bidder won.

Now I wouldn't possibly imagine that a brand new ebayer would drop 4k+ on his first purchase.

Hopefully I'm wrong, but if the guy doesn't pay....I've gotta wait a week to file the unpaid item dispute, wait a little longer to get my final value fees back.

Now if I try to send the 2nd highest bidder a 2nd chance offer, he'll think it's fishy that a 0 feedbacker won it, potentially thinking I shilled it. (I know I would feel this way 100%)

So, we'll see what happens. Got excited when I saw the final price, but when I sent the invoice and saw he had 0 feedback, my heart sank.

Here's the link to the auction for those who are curious

Cutler Peterson Forte Auto SP Authentic Exquisite Lot - eBay (item 260461693895 end time Aug-21-09 08:30:27 PDT)

Just because he has zero feedback doesn't mean he won't pay. We were all in that same boat sometime. Maybe he has alot more money than you think. There are people who easily make over 100k a year. Maybe its for his kid lol. Lucky kid but you never know.

ps, i think the kid is spoiled

Sorry to hear about that, Grant. If the buyer doesn't pay in a few days, I would file a request for his contact info. If a bidder has won an item from you, you can get their full contact info from eBay (including phone number). If I were you, I'd call him and ask him what's up....

This happens so often. I know it's wrong, but as a seller I would love to block all bidders with 0 feedback, regardless of the loss in revenue.

Well hopefully he just started and has to start somewhere, and that means he pays you!! If he doesn't what a pain in the rear end, non paying bidders tick me off to no end, especially something that high end, GOOD LUCK!!

I wouldnt wait for anything. Get his contact info now and give him a call. You dont have anything to lose especially since he just signed up and yours is the only auction that he has bid on.

I agree, if you don't feel comfortable, either contact the buyer or resell the cards. Don't let ebay hold you to a time frame, they didn't help you - they let this happen by not allowing sellers leave negatives-or allow you to block zero feedback bidders.

Thanks for the input, I'll probably shoot the guy an email later today, and if I don't hear from him I'll buzz him tomorrow afternoon.

I had a kid bid on my auctions once. I sent out the invoice. Waitted a week. Sent a second one. Waitted a week. Filed a non-bidder. Then I hear from his Father the next day. Saying how his son had gone on a bidding spree. And that His son could not pay for it.

Thats what I liked about Yahoo auctions. You could block bidders if they have a 0 ratting or lower.

And I don't understand Ebay. You would think they would be behind the seller more when it comes to people bidding then not paying and other things. We as Sellers pay the listing fees. Final value fees. And the Paypal fees. We are the one's that generate the revenue for this company. And the olny time they will stand behind us. Is to add more Vasoline to our rear side.

Dear newlifeasinmd1,

Hi,
I see you are new to ebay. If you have any questions or problems trying to pay for the auction you won from me this morning, I'd be more than happy to assist you. I will follow up if I haven't received payment in a couple days to check the status. Thanks and have a great day!

Hopefully he pays you but consider it a lesson learned. Even if he pays, next time use BIN BO with immediate payment on BIN and save yourself the headaches. I never list anything high end auction style anymore because of potential problems like this. BIN BO allows you to pretty much screen your potential buyers and not have someone play games with your listing.

I thought of that, but also it's like double the fees. I just put it up for kicks and giggles and if it wasn't where I wanted it to be with 12 hrs to go, I was going to end it. It was a little lower than I wanted it to be, but said screw it and let it ride.

Hopefully he comes through. We'll see.

Just in case you didn't know, when you create your auctions, there is a box to limit the type of bidders that can bid on your auctions. One of them does not allow 0 feedback buyers to bid. Hope this helps and good luck getting paid.

Did not know that. Thanks for the heads-up.

Also, either this guy is loaded....or is just winning high-end stuff with no intent to pay. He's won 11 auctions now. I highly doubt he's going to pay.

But he did email me back...

It's possible that he was suspended and found away around the system to open another account...

Sorry to see this, normally means DEAD BEAT New bidder, 0 FB and bids up a storm 1st day.

If you go to your auction on the left hand side there is a list of options. There is one Resolve a problem, click it. The only option you have now is " I sold an item and want to cancel the transaction".

Never been that far so don't know what it tells you after that point.
