- Non paying winner on ebay
non payment strike.
Its a fairly toothless punishment. As a seller, if you set your listing to filter out non-payers they need to have several recent strikes for the filter to be effective. Its such a faff to set the filter every time you list that I doubt many sellers do. So its more of a tutt-tutt than a slap on the wrists.
But if the buyer is a serial non-payer then unless you and others use the strike then nobody can filter his bidsPosted 4 years agospooky_b329Member
non payment strike.
He needs to realise a bid is binding. Don’t tell him first as I think that once its filed they will be prevented from leaving you negative retaliation feedback.
Edit: Actually, I think if they had contacted me and explained, I would let it go seeing as you had the second chance accepted. But if you had to chase the winner for the money then non payment strike.Posted 4 years agoB.A.NanaMember
I’ve been royally shafted last week, had a car up for auction, worth about £500-£600. Some guy put a max bid in of £850, then contacted me and offered £450, end the auction now and they would pick up and pay weekend after (about 4 days after auction ended). I said thanks, but no thanks, so they immediately used a bogus account to outbid themselves to £875, effectively kiboshing my auction. Needless to say I heard nothing at the end. All I can do is open a non payment issue against the bogus account and report the other account detailing my suspicion (I’ve no proof tho).Posted 4 years agojimificationMember
Non Payment strike. Always. It’s pretty flimsy but it’s the only protection Ebay offers sellers against this kind of misuse.
I’d like to see one of these buyers at Christie’s explaining after winning an auction that their mum bought one of these already, so they don’t need this one any more, so they won’t be paying…Posted 4 years ago
