Default Question for EBay sellers

Say you list an item and a buyer pays but then you realize you made a mistake and the Buy It Now was too low. At what point do you say its my fault and take the loss? At what point is the risk of taking a possible negative feedback better than the monetary loss?

If it's a price I listed I honor it, period.

I totally agree with Scott. Own your mistake and treat it as an important future lesson. It has nothing to do with the negative, it has to do with the way that you conduct yourself and your business.

Just my 2. I hope it wasn't too costly.

I am the buyer. Seller listed card for $10, I paid, he cancelled the transaction and relisted for $30. He apologized but I think he should honor the transaction.

I once sold a $1,000 card for $600. It was when Ebay was having glitches and no one could access the site on one evening in particular. Did I really want to ship a $1,000 card and take a huge loss? HELL NO.....Did I ship the card?? Of course I did....the winning bidder flipped it immediately for $1,100. I remember it to this day. It leaves a salty taste in your mouth, but Ebay, unfortunately, sets it up that way when they give the buyer all the power.

The card in question is a PSA 8 1968 OPC common so the $10 is not an unrealistic price. Worth a negative feedback? I still have not decided.

This just happened to me yesterday. I bought a nice card on BIN payed right away and then I get a email saying card was listed in error and please cancel transaction. I know the seller has a good repayable business and I knew the price was low. So after a few emails the auction was cancelled because people do make mistakes and I'm not going to profit on his mistake. The good part is that I asked for a price on the card and he resold it to me for a fair price for both of us. Bottom line is I'm happy and did the right thing and so did he.

If I am the seller. I own it the mistake since I priced it. No need to punish the buyer. So, the buyer got a "good deal". You ship the product and move on. We all learn from our seller mistakes.

I contacted the seller and offered $20, I figured its a good compromise, he comes back with an offer of $25. Really have to milk an extra $5 out of me?
