Deleting Bidders on eBay

In: Information

18 Mar 2009

What do you do if a known deadbeat bidder makes a bid in one of your auctions? Although you could just sit back and pray that the deadbeat gets outbid, a better approach is to cancel that user’s bidand block that user from ever bidding in one of your auctions again.

You can ferret out deadbeat bidders by examining the feedback rating and comments for the high bidders in each of your auctions.

Here’s what to do:

Start by canceling the bid in question. Go to the Site Map page and click the Cancel Bids on My Item link. When the Bid Cancellation page appears, cancel that user’s bid.
Now you want to block the bidder from any of your future auctions. Go to the Site Map page and click the Blocked Bidder/Buyer List link. When the Bidder/Buyer Management page appears, scroll to the Blocked Bidder/Buyer List section and click Continue.
When the Blocked Bidder/Buyer List page appears, add the buyer’s user name to the list; separate multiple names with commas.
Click the Submit button when done.

Now you don’t have to worry about that questionable bid, and the deadbeat bidder won’t be able to bother you again.
