There is a tiny "Remove" link next to your item description. Click that & the item will be removed.

I did the same thing but I did not COMMIT TO BUY, I simply clicked ADD TO CART and I have never been on a site anywhere that commits you to buy something when you add it to the cart ... proceeding to checkout and paying is my commitment to buy.

 

Anyways, there was no Remove button in the cart, but there was a Save For Later button, and clicking this Save For Later button will remove it from your cart.

You have bought an item.

It cannot be deleted.

 

Because you are new to eBay, you might try to email the seller, apologize for the inconvenience you are causing and ask them if they would consider sending you a request to cancel the transaction..

They are under no obligation to do so, and instead can report you to eBay as a non-paying bidder.

 

Might I suggest that  you spend some time finding out how ebay works?

Click on Customer Support at the top of the page and read  all the info there for new members.

>>>committed to buy.<<<

Read this again. You are committed to buy this item. You can't get rid of it.

Contact the seller--maybe he will let you out of the sale. But getting an Unpaid Item strike so early in your eBay career is not a good omen.

eBay has no shopping carts -- yet. You did not put it in your cart, you bought it.  Your seller is your only out. Hope that they will accomodate you.

You cannot delete an item from your shopping cart if you committed to buy it.   You must either pay for it or ask the seller to let you off the hook.   If the seller is willing, he can send you a request to cancel the transaction, and you must agree to the request.   if the seller is not willing, you must either pay for the item or get an Unpaid Item strike.

 

One Unpaid strike will not hurt you, but if you get even one more within the year, most Ebay sellers will block you.   Be careful of what you buy!   You are expected to pay for what you buy.
