    Default Another ebay advice request

    I've just sold something on ebay , and the ad clearly states that a £50 deposit via paypal is required as soon as auction ends.
    The guy doesn't seem to be forthcoming sending the deposit , and I've got another interested party.
    Is there any way out of it without getting bad feedback ?
    you might think I'm being petty , but I've been let down before , and it's really annoying that people just choose to ignore your terms of sale

    just send them a message stating that they have a few hour's to pay the deposit or you will sell to another party, give him a bit of time as he may be out etc

    Above, then sell to the other guy... you'll get any negative feedback removed if you clearly cover yourself and save the e-mails...

    if your auction states the deposit required then it's pretty much a term of the "contract" he agreed to buy bidding on it. Therefore I think you'd be ok selling to someone else if he fails to comply.

    Forgot to mention he's been in touch about collection arrangements , but no mention of paying the deposit , I purposely put this in the ad in massive red letters !
    Since I've requested the deposit he's gone all shy

    The auction was for a motocross bike , which historically is an item that everyone wants , but loads of timewasters to boot , I did try selling it a few month back and got sick of the jokers .
    One guy even paid a deposit then backed out lol .

    I'm just wondering , do I wait and see what happens (back down over the deposit)
    Or stick to my guns , I'm just a little miffed .

    Update - he's just sent me a text saying he's gone to work and can't get to a computer until tomorrow , why do people just ignore the simplest of requests? , I'm really annoyed now.

    I wouldn't send a deposit either, As a buyer I would want to see a vehical before agreeing to any sale and paying a deposit is exactly that.

    I have never ever listened to any of the ad's saying they want a deposit. Tuff Sh*t basically, I'll pay the full amount when I get there and I am happy that its 'As described'

    In your case, I would be careful about giving your address out. Meet him somewhere or tell him the bike is not stored at your address. Its an age old scam, Bid... get the address... steal the bike.... never turn up for the sale.
