Contact the seller and ask if they will retract the bid.  Otherwise, if you win, you are obligated to pay since bids on Ebay are binding and the seller is not required to cancel your bid.

Why do you want to retract your bid?

 


Your reply will determine whether you are eligible to retract your bid.

 

If you are -- we will advise you on "HOW"

 

If you are not -- we will advise how to best handle your situation.

If you are the seller you can cancel any bid prior to the auction's end here:  http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?CancelBidShow

 

 

If you are a bidder, you promised to keep your bid on that auction until it ended absent specific extraordinary circumstances (and to pay for it if you won). If you think you have such extraordinary circumstances, you can either describe them to us with specificity (including when you bid, when the auction ends, and why you changed your mind) and we may be able to suggest one or more solutions to your problem. Or you can beg the seller to cancel your bid, but s/he is not required to do so nor to acknowledge your request.
