    Seller Relisted item after I won!

    Seller Relisted item after I won! 29th Apr 09 at 12:18 PM
    Hi
    I bid and won an item on Ebay which in all honesty I think ended at a very low price.
    Now the seller has relisted the item, I have had no emails from the seller or Ebay giving a valid reason. Why are Ebay allowing the seller to do this. BTW the seller is new(within last month) and has zero feedback.

    Question is should I just leave negative feedback safe in the knowledge they cannot reciprocate or do I lodge a complaint with Ebay spend ages dealing with it and then being told tough in the end.

    Thanks

    Did you pay for it?

    Could they have had more than one perhaps? You also don't say whether you paid or not, or if you have had any communication from the seller regarding this.

    A similar thing happened to me recently.

    I did inform Ebay who blocked the guy's account for a month. Ebay did not inform me of this but I got an angry email informing me of this from the seller which cheered me up! I also left negative feedback.

    Thanks for replies, the item had not been paid for and the seller has only one of the item(bike parts so easily recognisable) and on my Ebay page it states the seller has relisted the item but no explanation from Ebay or seller.:confused:

    Why didn't you pay? How long after you won was the item relisted?

    Maybe the seller has more than one to sell?

    Edit: Beaten to the punch.

    Maybe the seller was fed up waiting for payment, and being new they are not aware of the unpaid process....?

    The item was relisted without reason within 24hours so did not have a chance to pay, the seller definitely only has one of the item as stated they are bike parts so are distinctive.
    There was no communication from the seller or Ebay stating reason for relisting ( as I stated originally I think they expected to get more for the item) and having looked for the item today the auction has been deleted/cancelled by Ebay and the new listing has also been removed.
    Quick response from Ebay with regards to my initial complaint though.

    Positive I won , don`t mean to be funny but been on Ebay for quite a few years and never had this happen before without some explanation from Ebay or seller.

    As I said seemed to me the seller thought he would get more for the items( as did I my highest bid was 90 and won @21) he should have put a reserve on it or sold elsewhere!

    Well then pay and ask him when you can expect delivery.

    In that case maybe the seller was scamming as he wouldn't have got suspended just for relisting an item that had not been paid for, it must have been something more serious.

    So the auction was pulled (possibly by Ebay) then you didn't win it. So nothing you can do. However, I wonder why you didn't try and pay as soon as you thought auction was over?

    The auction was pulled after it ended along with the new listing as previously stated.

    The item was not paid for straightaway as I work long hours and had other concerns ie sleeping&eating. My purchases are normally completed well within 24hours sometimes as soon as the item ends depending on the finish time.

    It just struck me as odd that there was no communication from Ebayer or seller regarding the item being relisted.
    IMO any item purchased should be paid ASAP but I would imagine if the item is not paid for within a week(?) the seller would contact the buyer before relisting!

    What is the latest? This is unusual, it is not like you waiting an undue amount of time before leaving payment. I have done this before when selling items i have more than one of and often the winning buyer emails me to see what is going on!

    If the seller has been suspended so quickly, and with also being newly registered, I'm thinking it may have been a habitual bad seller on previous ID's. By raising the issue with eBay it may have been the impetus for them to investigate the seller history a little deeper, and make the connection.

    If both items have been removed, then no disputes can be raised either way and no feedback can be left either way. Time to draw a line under it and put it down to experience.
