    Default Grr... Buyers!

    Ok, I have about 15 things listed on eBay right now and in all of my listings it says exactly like this (just a bit bigger):

    "All bidders with less than 98% positive feedback or less than 10 total feedbacks, please email me prior to bidding to confirm your interest and intent to purchase."

    Now, I'm pretty new to the whole selling aspect of eBay and all, but there are 3 different buyers with no feedback and a fourth with only 2 feedbacks, bidding on 7 of my auctions! TWO of which just signed up TODAY!!!

    One of the two that just signed up today, is winning four of my auctions. The other, is international (Canada which is ok but they still should have messaged me ). Then the 3rd with 0 feedback is kinda strange... they opened their account in July of 2004... and never made a single transaction!


    So... umm... I'm a little worried here because all of my auctions end tomorrow. Would anyone else be worried, or is it just me? What would you guys do?

    I feel like messaging them "If you can't freakin' read, don't bid on my sh*t!" Which sounds so rude, I know (and of course I would never actually say that), but how would I go about messaging them asking (just in MUCH nicer terms) if they are truly serious about purchasing my items?

    Just in more of a polite way...

    TIA!

    hmmm I think you can cancel their bids...or you can message them and say, that your policies state so and so....

    That would worry me too daisy. I would send them a message & if they don't respond, cancel their bids.

    Wow, all those people who can't follow the rules.
    How about contacting them first, see if they respond to you and if they don't, cancel the bids. Do you have enough time left in your auctions to do that?

    I totally agree with cassandra + navymom.. send them a message asking if they read through your description, about for them to contact you prior to bidding. If they don't respond cancel their bid.

    Hope everything works out.

    Just say that you appreciate their interest in your auction, however, as stated in the auction, you require those who don't meet your requirements ie. 98% feedback or less etc... to first contact you prior to bidding. If you don't hear from them by a certain time, you have no choice but to cancel their bids.

    I think you have 12 hours before end of auction to cancel bids?
