Getting harassed by a bastard cause I ended my auction early!

Grrr...I ended my auction for a Sony CDRW drive because someone offered me the price I was asking for (I put "if you want to offer this much, e-mail me and I'll end the auction" at the end of my description. He gonna get the Egay police on me and have the high bidder leave negative feedback, saying it's not right, blah blah. Yes, I was stupid and didn't cancel that one last bid (the remaining guy doesn't have super good feedback), but I don't need this moron telling me what's not right. Egbay wouldn't let sellers end auctions early if they aren't supposed to do it, right? Grr...

Sorry, now please go back to your regular scheduled reading of the off topic threads. =)

I thought Egay has a new option called "Buy Now" where if you (the seller) sets a price and someone offers that to you then you end the auction...?

That only works when there's no bids yet, and besides, this way, there's no egay fee either...I did buy it now, just that the first guy to bid didn't buy it.

I don't think your problem is ending the auction early, it was not selling it to the highest bidder (on record) at the end of your auction - I think that is going to work against you since e-bay realizes you were/are trying to avoid the fees.

egay is a piece of crap.
You still should have held on for more money. Hell, people pay more for used stuff on egay than they would to go to Best Buy and buy it new.
