HI emmatmg - basically if you have another item the same or in the event of a non payer you can offer the same item to the next highest bidder. I've used it before when someone didn't pay on time I sold it for a pound less but didn't have to relist. HTH
Just checked your stuff - 2 items had more than 1 bidder so you had another person interested so could make them a second chance offer but the other 2 just had 1 bidder so you couln't make anyone a second chance offer - if that makes sense! Well done though, good fun isn't it? and it soon mounts up
Yep, when you put more things on pu something in the payment instructions such as "contact must be made within 3 days of auction ending and payment must be received within 5 days, if I do not hear from you I will offer the item to the next highest bidder and leave negative feedback"
I know it sounds really harsh but if you don't specify time limits you never know where you are and people do unforunately take the piss! I do find a lot of people like to pay by cheque (I know it's a pain) but if you don't accept them then you may lose bidders. Try to get your items finishing early evening when most people go on 8pm is pretty good as most kids are in bed - also avoid Fri/Sat nights as some people have social lives (lucky buggers!)
I keep switching from pc to laptop so i'm not signed in. Trying to sort out a booking system for the website with online payment etc... Bloody nightmare!!! Stu's buggered off to Cheltenham so have kids under my feet too!
