Not Ebay here, Amazon 3rd party actually incase anyone has any experience...
I bought something, seller contacted me requesting I cancel the order because he doesn't have it in stock. OK, I'm fine with you not having it in stock, however, the item is still posted and went up (though very slightly).
Alright, so that's sort of annoying, but again, why is the 3rd party seller asking that I cancel the sale? Can't he? And if I refuse to cancel the order, what's up then?
Which, I have sort of done that already and asked Amazon who contacted him and told him to sell the product to me... But I mean if he doesn't have it honestly, then what? Amazon Marketplace is a weird place. Just wondered if anyone else ever ran into a hassle on it. I never have till tonight.
In Ebay news, and this happened and I let it go, but I made an offer on something which had a make offer listing on it. His BIN was like $10, I offered $5. He writes back to me "There's XYZ in the lot, I think $10 is a fair price"... OOOOOK then, but why did you have a make offer listing then? I didn't even bother replying and just made a counter offer of even less to piss him off.
