    Tonight I won a bid on Egg Bid.com and I went with the reserve $ amount to be sure my bid was in. The reserve $ amount was listed by the seller. AFTER I won the seller refused to sell them to me, even though I won the auction fair and square. He said he wanted more money! Bad seller....Bad business!!!
    SO when is an auction an auction????

    I have started hearing alot of bad stuff about egg bid I wont do anything with them at all. Funny how some people act! Imagine how would they act if you didnt pay! Instead of looking for quality birds I have started looking for quality people. [​IMG]

    Can you give feedback on egg bid?

    If so...the best thing to do is express what happened in the feedback. That way bidders can beware...

    Then move on... Sorry [​IMG]

    There has been a movement on here to get people over to Ovabid.com , it is supposed to be better than eggbid.

    count it as a blessing in disguise..

    You would not want to deal with a person like that.. why would you when there are so many others with just as good of a product, or better ??

    I found that egg-bid seems to be a bit pricey compared to many other sources..

    The truth is if he had posted a larger sum of money as his reserve I might have still bid, but then I won and he said Nope, I can changed my mind. I will relist with a higher reserve. This is just so unfair! Yes I left him feedback, but it is just not like E bay, feedback seems to get overlooked on Eggbid.
    I am finished with them. There is no oversite!! This was a large amount of money!

    I'm sorry you had to go through that, I've been there before. It's not fun. I have stopped selling and buying through eggbid. Definitely check out Ovabid!! [​IMG] It's great. They have great customer service, get back to you quickly and are very sweet. They don't have as many members as they are a bit new to this but it's a great place [​IMG]
