I've had a winning bid cancelled just before an item ended. It was an item that the "Cartel" group was selling. Guess they didn't want to let it go for that price.

Just now got a cancellation notice! Never happened before. http://www.ebay.com/itm/US-Stamps-M...:BCS:US:3160

"We're sorry to let you know that nycchen8668 canceled your order and mentioned the reason as I'm out of stock or can't fulfill the order for another reason.

The seller refunded $39.00 back to your original payment method, and you don't need to do anything else."

1typesetter, did he just cancel the purchase without any other communication whatsoever? Then I would leave him negative feedback.

Canceling without any communication first is the sign of a scammer or seller's remorse being unhappy with the price it received. If it were a legitimate item lost/damaged/etc., the sellew would have contacted you first prior to canceling.

I was watching this lot, and the $5 imperf is where all the value lies, IMO.

I've has seven cancellations in the last six or so weeks. It's VERY aggravating and as I've not won anything over $25 it's even more so. A bigger or more valuable lot I can understand better but why alienate buyers for what amounts to pocket money when it comes to the stamps catagory?

Agree that negative feedback is the least that should be provided - this is immoral and should be exposed as such. Of course, I've blanched at seeing some items go at prices far below what I'd expected them to fetch, but my response is to send the item, add a congratulatory element to my note to the buyer and learn from the experience.

I joined eBay back in 1998 and my very first purchase was for the Canada King George V "Scroll" Issue, the one with the Bluenose in it. It was a mint set and I won it for $25.00, which was amazing. The next day after I won he simply cancelled it, saying he didn't get enough for it. When I complained he posted my only negative comment ever. "Buyer thought he could get something for nothing". I was pissed for a long time.

Yes, just plain cancelled even though the listing said the buyer was out of town until June 1.

Yes, it definitely looked legit to me. Anyway, if the seller was unhappy with the price, he should have put a reserve on it.

I have also had the experience on both sides of the fence...getting something relatively inexpensively and also selling at a price far below what I was expecting. It's the chance you take.

Agree with 1typesetter seller should have a reserve price if he does not want to let it go for less than a certain amount. Or start his auction at the price he wants for it. If that happened to me seller cancelled order because they did not get enough money for it I would report the seller to eBay, leave negative and never buy from that seller again. They should not be allowed to cancel orders because they did not get enough money for it. Very bad selling practice to do that.

Earlier this week I had a BIN item that I paid for refunded because the item was no longer available. Today I see the same item back for sale, same vendor, but at a higher price. I may go the negative feedback route, but is there a way of contacting eBay directly to complain about this?

eBay sellers who cancel sales after an auction automatically receive a negative strike from eBay. It's part of the defect system. The sellers who keep pulling sold items from orders are only hurting themselves and if they do it too many times eBay will limit their activity, remove their top rated status and/or ban them.

blcjr: A strike to the seller's defect rate would be more efficient than complaining to the deaf ears of eBay.

How is this "negative strike" made known to buyers. I ask, because the seller I am dealing with still has a 100% favorable rating after cancelling my purchase and relisting the item. A couple of images:





He's still using the same time stamped photo of the item. And he still has his 100% favorable rating.

I've sent a message to him, seeking "his side of the story." In thousands of eBay purchases, I don't think I've ever left a negative feedback. Maybe this will be the first time?

He doesn't sell much- mainly a buyer. I'm sure he was hoping for more than face value, but despite using two shill accounts he didn't get there.
