    when winning bidder makes a mistake

    i was selling some wellington boots on ebay.

    final value was £51. 2nd bidder had bid £50, the winner, apparently, rather than bidding her desired £43, bid £4,300 by mistake.

    she sent a message saying that it was a mistake. i offered the underbidder a 2nd chance offer, which closes in 5minutes. he hasnt replied to a message, so suspect he wont buy it.

    winning bidder has now send a message "pleae send me a mutual agreement to cancel the transaction between me and you sorry for the error thankyou regards pip"

    what should i do? do what she suggests, hopefully exchange positives and relist??

    If the second bidder won't respond either, could you sell them to the next highest? You might as well get something, as eBay will charge you to relist won't they?

    the second highest bidder didnt take the second chance

    the third highest bidder was way lower

    i have cancelled the initial transaction & relisted. if they sell, the fees should be refunded.

    Yes, the right thing to do is. Cancel the transaction and re-list, this way you will receive the final value. When you relist message to all your bidders about the mess up and give them an opportunity to rebid.
