Chapter 22. Dealing with Deadbeat Bidders > Asking eBay to Refund Your Fees

Asking eBay to Refund Your Fees

After an Unpaid Item Dispute has been filed, eBay sends a message to the bidder requesting that the two of you work things out. (It's not a very strong message, in my humble opinion, but it's what it is.) You then have to wait 7 days before you can request a refund of your final value fee. You have to make the request no later than 60 days after the end of your auction, and your claim has to meet one of the following criteria:

  • The high bidder did not respond to your emails or backed out and did not buy the item.

  • The high bidder's check bounced or a stop payment was placed on it.

  • The high bidder returned the item and you issued a refund.

  • The high bidder backed out, but you sold the item to another bidder at a lower price.

  • One or more of the bidders in a Dutch auction backed out of the sale.
