So I listed 3 prints by different artists on Thursday. I have ebay Saved Searches for all 3 names. All were listed fine. I got one alert on Friday, but not the other two. Has anyone seen this before? Spelling is correct etc. But without stating the obvious I am kind of reliant on the alerts working to let people know what I am selling.

Any ideas?

I tried that yes, seemed to work fine when I clicked on it. All I can think is they were listed at the exact time the batch process runs to gather all new listings or something. And just missed the cut. I write code and know myself if you don't take care this can happen.

Just wondered if it happened to anyone else recently. Cheers.

so is it normal for Seller Protection to not be available, until the eCheck clears? just thought it was weird, as I've never seen that before.

I assume after check clears, seller protection is eligible?

Buyers are allowed to cancel bids, just like sellers are allowed to cancel sales. Why would you block someone operating under the rules established by the site?

since it is impossible to enter the wrong amount on an opening bid it is actually not within ebay's guidlines douchebag, but thanks for checking in. of course if they contacted me to to cancel it i would have since it would have been a PITA anyways, kinda like alts
Policy overview

A bid is a binding contract that's active until an auction-style listing ends. Once you place a bid, you need to pay for the item if you're the winning bidder. You're not allowed to retract bids to manipulate the bidding process, like trying to find out the maximum bid of the current high bidder or to find out the reserve price.

Honest mistakes sometimes occur, so there are a few times when you're allowed to retract or cancel a bid if you meet the time restrictions. Review the guidelines below.

Make sure you follow these guidelines. If you don't, you may be subject to a range of actions, including limits of your buying and selling privileges and suspension of your account.
What are the guidelines?

Allowed


It's only OK to retract a bid if:

You accidentally enter the wrong amount, like entering $99.50 instead of $9.95. If you do, you need to enter the correct bid right away.

The item description changed significantly after you placed your bid. For example, the seller updated information about the item's features or condition.

You can't reach the seller. For example, you sent the seller an email and it comes back undeliverable, or you tried calling the seller and the phone number doesn't work.

Not allowed


Examples of when you can't retract a bid:

You changed your mind about buying the item.

You wanted to find out the reserve price.

You wanted to find out how high another buyer bid on an item.

You only wanted one item but placed bids on multiple identical items. You should only bid on multiple items if you intend to buy all of them.
