What's wrong with Ebuyers

I'm getting rather p$%sed off with Ebuyers winning auctions with little or no feedback rating. I've quite clearly marked my requirements on the foot of the ad asking for at least 10 positive feedbacks and at least 95% positive rating.

All I want to do is sell my Son's Broken PSP!

Anyone else had this frustration too? And is there anything you can do to stop these people from bidding?

Been there many times myself with idiots bidding and then never showing. I do know that you can go into your settings and adjust it so those with any recent negative strikes can be blocked, likewise you can block overseas buyers. This might help a little.

This should help

To add buyer requirements to all of your listings:
Go to the Account tab in My eBay and select Site preferences.

Under Selling preferences, click Show next to Buyer requirements and then click Edit.

On the Buyer Requirements page, select your buyer requirements. For example, you might not want to do business with buyers who:

Don't have a PayPal account

Have unpaid items recorded on their account

Are registered in countries to which you don't post

Have reportedly breached eBay policies

Have a negative Feedback score

Are currently winning or have bought a large number of your items in the last 10 days

If you want to use these settings for all your listings, tick the box next to Apply above settings to current and future listings.

If you want to prevent blocked buyers from sending you questions about your listings, make sure that the box next to Do not allow blocked buyers to contact me is ticked.

Click Submit to save your requirements.

Ebuyer is different to eBay.

Yes, I've done all this. However it doesn't stop someone with a new account with zero feedback from bidding which was the problem last time. This time I've got someone which has had an account for 4 years, only 3 people leaving previous feedback (more than 12 months ago) so zero % and one of the 3 feedback suggested she was a fraudster

It's taken me 3 weeks to this point and I'm no nearer selling my item and it's cost me the sellers fees unless I can claw it back somehow.

Andy,

Its a while since I've sold anything on ebay - but you certainly used to be able to cancel someone's bid. So provided you spot it before the end of the auction you should be OK. Not sure if this is still possible?

You can cancel bids but the same person can rebid on it straight away, crap really.
