Depends on a variety of circumstances.

No bids, no harm, no foul, no problem.

If you have bidders you need to cancel them all first, else the high bidder wins the item at the price shown when you end the listing.

Even if you cancel all bidders you will be charged the final value fee just as if you had sold it as described above. That is a done as a penalty for closing an auction early with bids in progress.

If there are people bidding , you'll end up with mad bidders and could be pentilized for it and a bad reputation , because we do watch !

 

If there are no bids , then end it quick before someone bids and your fine !

 

I hope this helps ;-)

If it has no bids there is no penalty.

Somebody (scammer) is contacting you to buy outside eBay, or what? What happens if you do this is at the least an eBay policy violation, or even losing your item.
