I have a buyer that wants me to retract a bid with one day left. How do I do this? They are warning me that they will take other action if I dont? I dont mind, but, no sure how.

Report their email for the threat. That is not the way eBay works. Go to cancel a Bid and then Block them from any future bidding on your items.

There's no action they can take, and you are under NO obligation to do it. But if your agree to it, go to Site Map, bottom of this page. It will be in the center column right in front of you.

Personally, after that threat, I would not cancel the bid, but...

Of course you should cancel the bid, and also put them on your blocked bidder list.
