Someone bidded on an item, and they dont want it anymore so they asked me to send them a " cancellation request" so they can approve it.
I never heard of this, i've bever had someone bid on something then not want it.
Can you please help me.

You should file an Unpaid Item Case. These bad buyers don't have any repercussions when sellers just allow them to cancel their purchase. With the Unpaid Item Case they get strikes on their account and after 2 in 12 months most sellers will have them blocked from bidding on their items.

For a bidder, see the site map below, then cancel bids.
