I appreciated your advice, hope I didn't upset you. Still trying to learn this stuff. I am going to definitely watch any bidding I do very closely. Thanks!

And only E-bay knows for sure if U**D is paying or not....we have no way of knowing.
Just a thought.
I agree, what do you look for that would tip you off that you're possibly being shilled?

Yes, on second chance offers, you only have to pay what your maximum bid was, not what the winning bid was. It will state what you need to pay to accept the second chance offer. Accept or decline.
Good luck bidding and happy pin trading.

I honestly dont pay alot of attention to other bidders. I am quite disciplined when it comes to bidding on pins...I know what I am willing to pay and I enter that amount. Usually if you are patient enough you will get the pin you want at the price you are willing to pay.

I realize that the subject of good/bay eBay sellers is very sensitive, but we all need to check our facts before we give advice here!

Here is eBay's link

http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/second-chance.html
I don't think that Jenn4615 was trying to say that thewill was doing anything just maybe to be alert. Which I think is good advice after all I think that this tread is about being careful and aware of bad sellers. We want to be leary of the bad and not to punish the good that way maybe sometime in the future the good seller will outnumber the bad...

That is good advice I guess you just have to be careful not to get into a bidding war and overbid what you are willing to pay. A person can always quit bidding and try again on a different seller or auction. Thanks.

To clear things up, my sister was bidding on a lot of 25 pins on cards, from Will. Not individual pins that she missed out on by a few cents/dollars.

This is exactly what I used to do when I bid on books for my classroom on e-bay. I worked backwards to determine my max bid.

First you have to know what you are willing to pay per pin, say $3.

Multiply $3 x # of pins in auction. Then subtract shipping costs. That is your max bid.

It's hard to let someone 'get' it for a few pennies more, but once you get a set price in your head, you should be ok sticking to it!

Ok....and if she placed her maximum bid and she got out-bid and she was given a secound chance offer....why not take it? She would be paying the same amount as if she had won. If she is happy with her bid, who cares why she is getting the second chance offer. Did she realize that she had bid too high? If she got caught up in the auction, why is that his fault? Until anyone knows for sure that the wining bidder (U**D) is driving up the bid and not paying, noone should be pointing fingers. Only e-bay knows.

My sister did not get caught up in the auction. Plain and simple, she doesn't want to do business with someone who has questionable practices.

I have made 3 seperate purchases from "theatreandfilms"

and it was an excellent service. I have bought off other ebayers and been ripped off.

I now only use this seller as i trust i will get great pins.

I trade pins at disney once a month and always been a great experience.

I recommend this seller.

Have you looked at the good/bay seller list on this thread? I would highly recommend it.
