I placed a bid on a pushchair yesterday but was outbid within a couple of hours. In the meantime I found another one closer to home, it was a buy it now and so I went for it. So far very happy except I have just received an email from the original seller saying she has cancelled the second bid as the person had no feedback and so I am once again the winning - but I don't want it anymore! Have I screwed up sad

I don't think so - if you were outbid on the first it is perfectly acceptable for you to seek out an alternative.

I would email the seller and let her know what happened, and you're not interested in the pushchair any more. You're not in the wrong at all.

tell them to cancel your bids. as you have found an alternative already

That's what I have done and I am sure she is perfectly reasonable and there will be no problem but I am a worrier by nature. Nice to hear someone else thinks I was reasonable to go elsewhere, thanks smile

There is a facility in ebay to cancel bids. They only let you do it in certain circumstances, ie not just because you changed your mind. This would be a good reason to cancel I think. I can't remember where it is in ebay though to cancel.

Have looked at that but my reason isn't listed, I think I have to rely on her to cancel it for me.

If she cancelled the bids and you are the winner by default then your fine, if she doesnt cancel just email ebay and explain.

I feel really awful as I would have been pleased to be winning if it weren't for this random one that came up closer to home. I would have had to rely on my parents otherwise (not much of a problem but better if I can do it myself).

As I said I am a worrier (and pregnanT) and I am sure she will be perfectly reasonable and cancel it for me but thanks for you wise words.

I've been outbid - by someone with good feedback, feel much better. smile
