Thread: What the... Is this allowed?

    What the... Is this allowed?

    I was recently bidding on this auction that is now been canceled by the seller.

    It was ending today and I was the highest bidder at $18. I was supposed to end sometime tonite so I logged in to ebay to check if i was still the high bidder, I had my max bid somewhere in the high $20s. The auction wasn't in my bidding list so i searched through completed auctions and found it ended early.. I can't believe you can just end an auction because it wasn't selling for the price you hoped for even though you put a 99 cent starting bid on it... thats total crap..

    you can do it, before 24 hours at the end of the auction, I think. But this is funny, because the last day is the time, when the bids are coming. Sometimes it happens.

    Sometimes items are available locally as well..I know I've ended auctions because I have sold the item locally...of course I state that in the auction..but I've had my fair share of "OMG did I just loose on that one" auctions as well

    Yeah that happens. Often times people will contact the seller via PM and make an arrangement if it's a PC item that they really want. I've done it a few times to ensure that they accept my best offer, but I've never had them end one early for me.

    technically the card still belongs to the seller , so he can do whatever he wants with it

    I feel ya, I HATE it when this happens. If its bc it legitamatly sells locally fine but a lot of times its bc the seller doesnt like how much its at.

    yeah im pretty sure he expected more for it since it was under $20 with like a day to go and his BIN was $700..

    did you get in touch with him yet? might be worth it to maybe find out why?

    It's 100% allowed, people do it all the time. For PC items I REALLY want, I've sent messages to sellers asking them to do that: I'll send you 'X' dollars through paypal for the item.

    if you guys bought a card lets say even for $100 , will you sell it as low as $20 ? i dont think so . but what i dont understand if thats his case, why didnt he set a reserve price if he wants it to be sold on a certain amount. in this case it could just be an offline deal or basically card got sold somewhere else

    yup its nice to see that you have a fair chance of winning that card for the amount you bid but always remember that the most sought after cards , actual bidding starts 1 minute before the item ends because of SNIPERS

    i always loose most of the time on the stretch approximately the last 30 seconds before item ends and it sucks to loose that way
