I saw a bag I really liked on eBay. Having talked to the seller and asked for and received more pics, to ascertain condition, I put in a Best Offer. This offer expired, so I contacted the seller again and she said that her client had wanted more, so she couldn't accept the offer. I tried to put in a higher offer, but in the annoying world of eBay.co.uk, it will only let you put in one Best Offer (I understand that it's different on the US site?). Had I known this, I would have put in a slightly higher offer in the first place. So, I contacted the seller and we struck a deal for a higher price (assuming her client agreed) and she agreed to relist the bag/edit the auction with a BIN for the agreed amount. I asked her to please let me know when she was going to do this, just in case it was bought by someone else. I couldn't check my emails this morning, but when I checked them about an hour and a half ago, she had emailed at 9.35AM saying that her client had agreed to the price and that she would 'go ahead and change the listing now.'! So, I checked the auction and sure enough, somebody else had bought the bag. I suppose I had assumed that, at the very least, she would wait for a response from me, before changing the listing; otherwise, how would she know that I knew? I had also hoped that she would put a note on the auction, saying that it was for a particular person and please could nobody else BIN. Although, I didn't specifically ask her to do this, I know. Anyway, I emailed her, asking if she could please explain the situation to the buyer? I haven't received any response, yet. I wonder if I ever will? My question is - if a seller has received and accepted a definite offer (via email) from a buyer, should they honour that deal?
