That's not the way eBay works. You do all of your mind-changing before you bid or buy, not after.  For now, contact the seller. But he is not obligated to help you out -- you have cost him time and money.

Time is not the issue  here .You buy You pay.

Make a wish list  of the items you like  and then, when you are sure, buy - not before-

You don't. If you win the item you are required to pay for it.

24 hours? There isn't even an option to change your mind in the first 24 seconds.
