Ebay question

So I had been watching a particular item with the intent of bidding. There were already several bidders and the price was up to $24 and the shipping was listed as free. The seller was new, just joined in the last few days so no feedback yet.

Fast forward and I go to check to see how much time is left on it (I knew there was about a day left) and the listing was ended for the reason "seller has stated that item is no longer available". OK whatever, I move on. I notice that in the search I do the same bag comes up, from the same seller with a price of $80 and buy it now for $100 and there is a shipping charge now as well. I thought you were not allowed to end listings when the item has been bid on just because you were unhappy with the possible selling price? It is clearly the same item with almost the exact same description.

Fyi this item usually sells between $50-$60 on ebay.

Re: Ebay question

sellers are allowed one item cancellation a calender year, otherwise it goes on their record i believe? hopefully some one corrects me if i'm wrong.

I've canceled more than one item in a calendar year so not sure about that. They may not be "allowed" but it can be done.

Apparently, the seller must pay a fee equal to the final value fee on the highest bid on subsequent cancellations after the first cancellation each year.
