Timewasters!!

My boat sold on ebay last night, only to walk to an email this morning from the winning bidder to say "i did'nt realise no engine so no good to me without"

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...:X:AAQ:GB:1123

I clearly state im keeping the engine and trailer - with loads of photos of the engine being lifted off

I'm peeded off now I have to go through the whole non payer dispute thing now - bleedin waste of space

rant over - sorry for making you ears and eyes bleed!

....and as the seller I don't think you can leave neg feedback for the buyer anymore can you??

Not that you would as he'd prob do the same back and come out with some bollox about misleading ad or something

I reckon he'd changed his mind and used that as an excuse - to me the ad was perfectly clear, highly frustrating for you!!

I have never seen so much writing on an ebay ad. I dont see how he can go back on the deal when it clearly says the engine is not included and even shows it removed..
"Explain" that, for the price, he has a real bargain and don't take NO for an answer.

I am sure that any winning bids are legally binding, and unless the bidder has a very good reason for withdrawing. I dont think being blind/stupid/a total sh1t counts.
OR
How about letting it go for 10 less to Bidder 11. I am sure you can do that. It would save going through the whole thing again.


Pehaps it is because he realised he was not going to get that mighty fine engine hoist.
Nice to see it again. Has it gone back to Mr 7?

Perhaps take it on a holiday or two and send Mark a postcard from each location

The ebay process is very simple if both parties mutually agree to void the sale. There's no point mucking around forcing somebody into something they don't want - go we the second best bid (second chance offer) it's only 10 less!
