They rejected your bid, Ted !

Seller wanted to make sure ebay got their fee for a sale.

Or..the buyer demanded it so he had some type of protection if the item was not as described.

...probably someone who didn't want to 'break eBay rules' by selling outside of eBay...or wanted to make sure he got eBay/PayPal seller protection for the transaction...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

I'm with Gulfiend.

I've had one or two "auctions" like that with Buy it now on the agreed upon price and they notified me as soon as the posted it so no one would bid.

Hadnt seen the listing have that though...

Better than taking your chances online with total strangers. At least you have some ebay/paypal recourse if someone isnt on the up and up

Whatever floats your boat. Here is the reply I got from ebay. They don't care as long as they get their $$$$$$$

Thank you for writing eBay in regard to the listing with item number
320439474445.

I understand your concern and I appreciate the opportunity to assist
you.

I checked on the item ORIGINAL TEXACO SIGN (Item number: 320439474445)
and didn't see any problems with the listing. A seller can state that a
certain listing was prepared for a specific bidder/buyer if they
relisted it for them exclusively, or they already had a previous
agreement. There's no eBay policy against this.

If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reply to this
email and let us know.

Sincerely,
Evangeline S.
