    Default Can you pull out of an ebay purchase?

    I accidentally purchased something in the neighbouring town and don't think I'll be able to collect it. Can I pull out of it now or am I obliged to pay?

    Yes you are required to pay for your purchase however if you email the seller they may let you off but be aware that if they don't agree to and you don't pay, you could look at a strike also for being a non-paying bidder.

    It's furniture. I don't know what I was thinking. I went on there to advertise a lounge and ended up buying instead.

    I might negotiate with them and see if they can hold it for a few months. I really would hate to ruin my reputation for not paying - I mean, I got it for $23 - pretty good!

    technically, you should complete as you've entered into a binding contract.

    however, if you email the seller and explain that you didn't realise how far it was away and you have no means to collect it, then maybe they'll agree to let you withdraw. You could offer to pay the listing fee or something, so the seller's not out of pocket.

    You could ask them if they will hold it for you, but generally when people are selling cheap furniture, they just want it out of the house.

    If it were only $23 I'd go through with the sale, but then call donate it to the salvoes and they can pick it up.

    Spread the cheer!
