Why do people bid when they don't have the money readily available to pay when they win. I sold a bag. I make it very clear in my auctions that international bidders must contact me before they bid so I can tell them the shipping rates. A guy in Canada bid (and subsequently wins) my auction. However, he didn't contact me until 4 a.m. about shipping rates until after he bid. I'd been ill so I was able to respond to his email within the hour. The auction ended at 7:15 a.m. Because of the price and value of the bag, I told him I only felt comfortable shipping the bag Express mail and the rate would be $25. He wins the auction and I send him an invoice. He replies that Priority is only $12 and would I be willing to charge him $20 because he's going to have to pay customs on the bag. WTF?!? I calmly reminded him of my first email about shipping and that the bag would have to be shipped for $25 because that price includes shipping and handling. He agreed and then asked me to say the bag costs $20 so he won't get dinged on customs. I didn't even respond. I'm not doing that because I'm not getting in trouble with the government so he can save a couple of bucks. He also said that he'll need to move money around and needs an extra couple of days to pay. Is this some evil game that eBay bidders like to pay called "I'll buy your item, but I want to renegotiate the terms of the auction after I win"??
