Yes, you MUST sell to the winning bidder.  If you know it's worth more why did you value it so low??

Don't be confused about bidding. It's not something a seller has an option to accept  or not. Once a buyer wins, a seller is obligated to complete the transaction.

You start bidding at acceptable prices, which you could have done. Since you didn't start at 99¢, like many sellers do, how is it that your starting prices are not high enough for your liking?

Yes, you need to honor the winning bid.

 

In the future consider setting you starting bid at the min price you want for it or set a reserve or use the best offer funcion.

You have to accept any bid that is at or above the opening bid amount that you chose for the auction.

You are the one who set the starting price. You can't say it's too low if you are the one in control over how low the auction starts.

 

If you have no bids, revise your listings and set the start prices to something of your liking.
