How quickly do ebay react when you report a listing for breaking listing policies?

I reported this listing to eBay on Friday, but it's still up there.

The seller states "If this does'nt reach a decsent amount il take it off as im not giving it away as these a small fortune to please don't expect it for a couple of pound's it won't happen." (sic)

That attitude really annoys me; why didn't the seller just put a higher starting price, instead of 99p? They could have had a starting price up to £14.99 and only paid 35p for the listing (instead of 15p for the 99p starting price).

It looks like a clear breach of listing policy to me. So why hasn't the listing been removed yet?

My goodness! What a listing. Sounds like a barrell of laughs.

If you want it, bid on it for 99p at the last minute ( will place your bid for you in the last few seconds of an auction).

He can't say "not going to happen". It's a no-reserve listing and the rules of eBay are perfectly clear - an auction is a legally binding contract and if you're the highest bidder at 99p, he has to send it to you. Doesn't matter if it's a diamond bracelet or an Aston Martin - last price gets it. If he doesn't, they'll de-register him.

wouldn't bid on that anyway- a lister who doesn't make an effort to punctuate, who says that there are a few little bits missing, and who puts on very unclear photos- would run a mile.

Agree, it should be removed

what a chop - makes u want to win it for 99p just to piss him off, but he is probably bitty dodgy, no coorect punctuation and he SHOUTS and uses bold - best avoided imowink

It's still there. There's no way I would bid on it. Nobody else has bid on it either.

Listing has ended and someone has bought it for 99p! I hope the buyer is prepared to be assertive.

I also just noticed that the seller says "PLEASE PAY WITHIN 24HRS........please remember i can take up to ten day's to post item's out" (sic) hmm
