Ebay question

I bought something the other day, auction said pay within 3 days. I just went to pay for it (2.5 days later) and happened to look at the seller's other items, and in doing so discovered that they re-listed it 2.5 days ago. Should I pay for it and risk them selling it to someone else and not getting my item, or cancel my bid? If I can even cancel my bid, I don't know.

Are you sure they didn't just have more than one?

I would pay or you will get a non paying bidder strike. They probably just have another of the same item to sell.

Re: Ebay question

I would pay for it now. Sellers often have more than 1 of the same item to sell, especially if they are a business through ebay

Re: Ebay question

I think you have 4 days to pay so pay for it. Either they have another or expected you weren't going to pay and relisted...

Re: Ebay question

I do this all the time when I have more than one of the same item. It puts the item up towards the top of the search results as a "new listing" instead of just doing a quantity listing. Well worth the relisting fees. I'd just pay and go about the transaction like normal.
