Is there any way for me to cancel someone's bid?

If I click the 'Block this Bidder...' button, is that going to cancel their current bid?

Please re-read the GunBroker terms that you agreed to, excerpts below:

"The winning bidder is the highest bidder on the item, or in the event of a tie, the bidder who placed the highest bid chronologically earliest...Listing an item constitutes entering a binding legal agreement to sell the item to the highest bidder as determined by the rules of the auction....Once an item is listed and has received a winning bid, the item may not be withdrawn from sale. Please consider carefully whether you want to place an item for auction....Bid manipulation of any kind is expressly forbidden."

Sellers can block specific users from bidding on their auctions. If a bidder appears on your Blocked Bidder List that bidder will not be able to place any new bids on your listings. Existing bids (including proxy bids) are not affected by this list.

Ok, that's what I was afraid of. Thanks!

I did find this on their website;

If you have bid on something and you wish to be let out of your bid, you must work this out with the seller of the item. Contact the seller using 'Ask Seller a Question' located on the item listing page. If the seller is willing to release you from your bid, the seller must contact us and request that we remove the bid from the database. We cannot force the seller to release you from your bid if he refuses.


I've got a guy who has bid on a gun and wants to cancel his bid, and I'l like nothing more than for that to happen. Unfortunately, the auction ends in a few hours and I don't see any way to delete his bid.

Well since you are on the same page with the bidder, couldnt you just let him win the auction and then do what you want with the item as long as he doesnt pay? Can leave positive feedback on each other if no harm was meant.

Gotta pay GB a fee if the auction ends with a winner.
