4. Selling > 68. Keep Out Deadbeat Bidders

Keep Out Deadbeat Bidders

A little diplomacy will help keep out deadbeats and still allow healthy bidding on your auction.

Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

One of the most frustrating aspects of selling on eBay is dealing with winning bidders who don’t pay. Not only are nonpaying bidders a waste of the seller’s time and money, they end up ruining honest bidders’ chances of winning the auction.

You can always tell a seller has been recently burned by a deadbeat from the harsh warnings in their auction descriptions:

  • “Don’t bid if you don’t intend to pay!”

  • “Serious bidders only.”

  • “If you have zero feedback, email before bidding or your bid will be canceled!”
