Some idiot was the highest budder on my auction and he has no intentions of paying for it. He has no feedback at all.

What annoys me is that no only has he wasted my time and the other bidders....I can't even give him negative feeback for it to warn others but according to his sats hes still biddding on stuff.

ItS STUPID. angry

I have had this recently. someone bought my pram on BIN but have so far neglected to contact me, complete the checkout procedure or respond to my emails.

I have raised a non payment dispute with ebay (can you do the same) but I'm sure they (the "buyer") have no intention of responding to it. I'm a bit peed off as it's a bloody hassle having to relist it etc.

I suppose all you can do is leave a neutral feedback (if you can even do that now) but make sure you put down what he is like in the comments and hope that people will read it.

You can't leave negative or neutral for a buyer. I never sell on ebay, only buy, but I do think it is a stupid rule. Also in a silly way, I as a buyer am proud of my 100% positive feedback and am a bit hmm that any buyer can earn the same, regardless of whether they are a good buyer or not.

If he doesn't pay at least you can report him.
