Unfortunately, the winning bidder has 0 feedback, I've sent numerous emails but no response to any of them.

What should I do or what can I do?

leave a negative feedback, talk to ebay about getting your listing fee and final fee back and relist.

I've found it's often easiest to just make a second chance offer to another bidder... saves time and hassle.

I'm in a worse situation. UK bidder with no feedback won my "only ships to US" auction and requested I ship to Nigeria and then sent a half dozen spoofed emails from EBay and Paypal trying to make it look like payment was received. I now have to wait to get my fees back because I need to give them three days before filing a dispute.

If you report someone as a non-paying bidder, or you and the auction winner mutually decide not to go through with the transaction, they refund your listing fees.

Did you have the auction set to auto-reject any bidders registered outside the US?

Like others said, file a NPB report. You should be able to do it from a drop down link of your auction in My eBay.

Here are some tips for the future. Not 100% fool-proof but should help:

1. In your terms state that you do not accept bids from anyone with 0 feedback

2. Anyone with 1-5 feednack must be approved by the seller.

3. Reserve the right to cancel any bid for any reason.

3. Do not ship outside US.

4. Schedule your auctions to end at the time when you're home and can keep tabs on it. Log in to your auction and open three windows. First window should show your auction. Second window should be on "cancel bids" page. Have all fields filled (auction number and reason). Third window should have banned bidders window. H

Here is how I work it: I wait til last 5 minutes and start refreshing every 5 seconds. If someone with 0 feedback bids, I cancel right away and ban them. If someone with 1-5 feedback bids, I cancel their bid and in "reason" field write" please see auction terms, seller pre-approval required". If they bid again without premission, I cancel and perma-ban them.

Again, this is not a 100% gurantee, but cuts down on 98% of jackasses.

I understand the reasons for not allowing people without any feedback to bid, but how are they supposed to get any feedback if they aren't allowed to bid on anything?

Well, that's my policy. Over the years I've learned that 99.9% of non-bidders are those with less then 5 feedback or completely new. It cost my too much money in the past, so I don't allow them to bid anymore.
