Re: Selling on Ebay
You may be correct, Tim, but the Ebay explanation is far from clear.
If I list without a reserve, I NEVER end it early, nor do I remove it. Without reserve should mean highest bidder gets it.
If I list with a reserve, and reserve hasn't been met, and I get a local buyer, I don't see a problem ending the auction. There is no current "winner". No one has met reserve, and therefore no one has a right to EXPECT they will be getting the item.
I agree, ending after reserve is met, or ending a "no reserve" auction early (normally because bidding hasn't hit the level the seller wants) is just wrong.
I have never ended a no reserve auction with bids, or any auction on which reserve was met.
If Ebay wants to ban me or discipline me, I am OK with that. I am still SHOCKED that there is no viable competing auction site to ebay. Ebay just got too greedy. I guess the mulit millions it was earning just weren't enough.
