You need to contact the seller - the ask question link is on the bottom left of the listing.

Don't forget to tell the OP how to do an invalid bid retraction.  It is your trademark after all.

If you didn't know what it was, why did you bid on it?  And "ididn't notice until after i bid" is not a valid reason.  And being new is no excuse. 

 

The buyer's job is incredibly easy.......read the entire ad and pay.

 

Yes, refurbished means rebuilt, replenished, fixed, etc.  If you want to know exactly, contact the seller as suggested above.  But it really may not matter at this point, because if you win the auction you have to pay for it anyway.

 

Next time take the necessary 25 seconds required to read the entire ad.

Hello. Do as "angelgirl" advises and ask the seller.

 

My GUESS is that the printer ink cartridges were refilled with ink and then listed on ebay as "refurbished".

 

I buy "refilled" printer ink cartridges locally. They work just fine and are a lot cheaper then HP ink cartridges. (and with reuse staying out of the trash)

 

Good luck and welcome to ebay.
