i am so not having much luck angry

just got notification of winning an item i bid on, which was series 1-8 of some dvds for 99p (without postage).

have just recieved a message from the seller saying they have made a mistake and dont want to sell them for just 99p

i havent paid... and its late so i wont reply till morning... but what the hell do i do now? are they even allowed to do this? im pretty pissed off. its not my fault no one else bid on the item.

ffs angry

this is getting complicated. i havent responded but she's opened a case against me because she wants to sell it for more than 99p

however, dh and i have just figured out there was still 5-6 days left to bid on the item (im certain it was under my sonic screwdriver bid), i was the only bidder, so i dont know what the flip she is trying to do!

people could have bid in that time... in fact im sure they would have as ive been bidding on others confused

grr i dont know what to do

What kind of case has she opened?

Unless you agree to cancel the sale she has to sell to you or face the wrath of eBay.

IIWY I would pay for the item straight away.
Then if she refunds or refuses to send the item you can file a dispute against her.

When you sell on eBay you agree to their rules, if an item sells for less than you wanted you shouldn't have listed it with a low start price, it's your own fault and one the winning bidder had paid you have to forfill your part of the deal and send the item.

She isn't allowed to change her mind. She should have listed them for more if she wanted more. It's happened to most people who sell things on eBay and you just have to go with it.

do you mean she has sent you a cancellation request - if so refuse it

And forward her email to ebay - report her as a non performing seller and leave appropriate feedback and stars

apologies for not updating! i accepted the case and closed it (dh wants an easy life!) grin but i shouldnt have...

we guessed that she cancelled the item with 6 days more to go but did it wrong which made it look like i had won. fair enough. sent her a message to ask her why as it still shows i need to leave feedback and i wanted to know cause im nosey, and she says she didnt mean to cancel it but glad she did as she can only list 10 items a month (i have no idea why) but if i still wanted them i could buy them out of ebay but the postage would be £14.50 not £2.99 like it said shock

so i told her no chance and that it was against ebays rules and i havent had a reply since

some people really do take the piss. am so tempted to report her but will wait to see what dh says later

make sure you leave a neg - I would never have accepted the cancellation tbh
