Low winning bid

I sold a pram travel system on ebay, collection only, and the winning bid was just £12.50 ! The first time I listed it with a reserve price that wasn't reached, so I relisted it without a reserve price.

Am convinced that the buyer is now going to sell it elsewhere for loads more money, but where? Where can they sell for more that I don't know about?

Afraid it's not your business where/if they sell it on. Gum tree is a possibility, but I would guess they're just normal people, happy to have won such a bargain.
I take it you aren't going to cancel the sale?

Buyer has collected, I just wasn't convinced it was for her own personal use though, and am intrigued as to what she was going to do with it...

Well, I reckon gum tree if she was intending selling it on. My local one is rammed with new stuff every day.

I sold a Hauck travel system for £10.50 last weekend. I just wanted it out of the way. Buyer told me who she was giving it to and I don't really know if I believe her or not, but it's gone now.

Thems the breaks with EBay. Your loss her gain on this occasion. Not your business what she does with it. If you wanted the pram to go to a deserving person, you should have donated it!

I sold a pushchair once for 99p.

The same night an identical pushchair which looked grubbier than mine went for about £60.

Because all their family was bidding on it, obviously, angry but that's the way it goes unfortunately.
