    Ebay buyers getting worse - what to do in this case? 15th Apr 09 at 9:55 PM
    Hi I am really noticing a lot of buyers taking the pee recently. I sold a jumper the 5th April I only wore it once was in perfect condition a buyer won the item for 99p. She didn't pay then on the 6th day she emailed asking what material the jumper was made from. I said I was unsure as I had cut the label out. Still no payment so on the 8th day I start an unpaid dispute. Today she has emailed me this

    "Hiya, i asked what material the above top is made from and you replied you didn't know! As you can't advise me of this, i would like you to cancel my bid and cancel the unpaid item. Thank you"

    Now in my opinion a buyer should ask all questions prior to bidding on an item. The item only sold for 99p so it's not a case of the money, but I don't wish to cancel the transaction because I don't think buyers should be able to keep bidding then changing their mind.

    Can I just wait until enough days have passed to give her an unpaid strike? Can she leave me negative if I do that? What would you do? :confused:
