    If this where my auction here's my take on things. First i believe you should NEVER bid on anything you are not in a position to buy nor want. I would tell him he has x amount of days to pay for the item then you will have to file a NBC on him in order to get your fees refunded to you. And that would be how i would handle it. I have been lucky with my ebaying but i'm may be in your shoes in a few days if this lady does'nt pay and my item is 400.00! I contacted her prior to auction end because of her 0 feedback and she assured me she wanted the item so we'll see. Best of luck with your sell.

    I agree with PartyOfSix, however if you want to go easy on the person--tell them if they pay for the listing fee and the Final Value Fee, you will not file the NPB/FVC (Non-Paying Bidder/Final Value Credit) on them. Look at your Ebay account to determine the amount of your filing fee and final value fee.

    As a fellow seller. I see your point. I would NEVER Bid on anything if I didn't want it . Because it states that the bid is a binding contract to purchase. I always state payment within 7 days. Tell him when to pay buy and follow up on the Non Paying Bidder and get your fees refunded.

    OMG, what a jerk! What purpose would 'bidding it up' serve HIM?

    I agree with asking him to pay the listing and final value fees. If he doesn't agree, go the NPB route and give him negative feedback...

    I would contact eBay immediately. Tell them what happened and forward the e-mail you received from this "bidder". When eBay sees what has happened they will probably kill his account, which will also protect you from a possible negative feedback. Then file as non-paying bidder and ask for your fees back.

    Ebay will not do a thing until the bidder has THREE FVCs filed against him--it does no good to email Ebay about non-paying bidders--they have a 3-strikes-and-you're-out rule. They will occasionally take action against fraudulent sellers but generally will do nothing about bidders except through the NPB/FVC process.
