I just had my first selling vase on ebay... I sold a glass of vase. The buyer only contacted me after I contacte him A WEEK after it sold. He said that he couldnt make it in the next couple of days could I wait.. I said fair enough...A week later when I contacted him, he replied that he couldnt afford it????. I said that would have been nice to know that to begin with, why bid on it??. Anyway He has left negative feedback on my profile - he has ruined my 100% positive feedback. I checked out his profile and he has brought a whole heap of stuff....Why do people do this..Someone else has missed out on the chance to buy this car, what an a$$hole. Just frustrated!!!!

Do like texas said and file the non paying bidder on him, you will get your fees back and if he doesn't respond then his neg won't count against you. Give him a negative but be factual so you look professional...just state the facts. You have 80 spaces to do it in. EOA 6/20 NPB 7/6 ebay fees received 7/18 If you have good feedback besides his thats not going to effect your sales, people can see who is in the wrong. If he gets 3 or more npb filed on him ebay will kick him off...usually

He left you negative feedback after he didn’t contact you- and didn’t have the money to pay- I’d report him to e-bay and then leave him negative feedback- Also post to your negative feedback- the details- I’m sure people will read it and understand- People are as$es at times- Makes no sense to me- I would also relist the item and have it a go again!

I would leave him back negitive feedback also. Or write ebay and explain what happened to them. I don't blamw you at all for being upset. There are some real jerks that I have dealt with also from buying and selling off of ebay.

First, did you report an Unpaid Item to eBay for your auction? You can recover your Final Value Fee, which is based on your total selling price, I just did it on 2 of my auctions. Then, I would leave your non-paying bidder NEGATIVE FEEDBACK, as he has done for you, then move on and starting selling that Vase again. Believe me, there are a 100 bad guys on eBay to 10,000 good ones!

eBay has things in place to protect the seller also...you need to contact eBay or go into the help center and look, or check out the ebay community forums. Or just contact eBay directly through customer service and ask what you can do now. eBay wants to protect its site, so tries to make sellers happy. Good luck...

Well, I am so sorry to hear that. Some people are like that. The way to do it is to never send anything to those people until they pay you and then you send them their stuff.
