eBay Business Tip of The Week — What to do when you make a mistake in an auction?
If an auction has not received any bids you can revise it. Click on the link "revise auction" right below your username. If the auction has received bids, you can first cancel the bids and then cancel the auction.
If you go to My Account on you’re My eBay Page there is a link where you can email eBay and ask them to credit the listing fee. Just explain that you cancelled the auction, fixed the mistake and relisted it. Give them the old and the new item number and they will usually – but not always credit you the fee.
Quote of The Week
