I put a bid on a stock, but looking at it now, it has been modified and I didn't realize it at first.

It was mentioned in the ad, but I was on my phone and didn't notice.

Contact the seller and beg for mercy. The seller can request an admin to remove it.

I would contact the seller, post haste.

IMHO, you shouldn't be let out of it. It was in the ad, it's your fault for not seeing/reading it.

I am fully aware of the fault.
I am concerned with how to resolve this.  I just sent the seller a message,  we will see.  What's the worst that can happen???/

Either you get outbid or you win it.

If the seller is good with letting you out, no problem.

As a former seller on eBay and other auction sites, I can see it from the sellers side especially since he fully disclosed it.

I once won an auction for a M203 Grenade Launcher receiver because I was drunk and wanted to see the bid history.  I don't know why.  I won the auction, payed the dude his listing fees and moved on.  You may have to do that if you win it.

I placed the minimum bid and I am the only bidder, so it anyone else in the world wants it then they can easily outbid me.  I guess that should have been my clue that it wasn't a 'stock' stock.

Meh. I let a couple of bids go over the years. The bidder had good feedback and was courteous that it was a mistake.

I am the high bidder.

Suppose I can pay the listing fees if he goes for it.

There probably wasn't much of a chance you would have won anyway, the reserve has still yet to be met.

Also, I read the ad and didn't see anything about it being modified.

It's obvious it has been modified, but I guess with kids, and the wife, and a beer or two I didn't sort it out.

problem on GB is there is not a way to let a seller off after the fact like eBay and you  have to 1 leave bad feedback and start a unpaid bidder process 2 charge the non bidder a restock for listing fees 3 or eat the GB fees

How much is a restock fee?  I assume that is the hosting fee GB charges?  I would pay that and not complain, but I don't' want to purchase the stock.

Well, the worst that could happen is you flaking on a bid. The 2nd worst would be you winning the auction and having a stock you don't want.

Which he could then put on GunBroker for auction!
Link Posted: 12/19/2016 4:35:00 PM EST
offer $25 bucks more then the listing fees to give him reason to let you off. It is after all,,,your fault. Still cheaper then buying a stock you do not want.
Link Posted: 12/19/2016 4:37:58 PM EST


 Contact the seller before it runs out !!

 Usually pay listing fee etc, sometimes you pay nothing, depends on the seller.

it varies a bit with the cost of then item , tier of seller  and what sort of add ons the seller put on the auction
can range from 3-10%

See above.
I suppose you could offer to pay whatever fees the seller chooses to not have negative feedback left.
However, I bid on an item that I could not possess.
I agreed to pay the listing fees. I received negative feedback anyway so the seller could bank the money that I paid and get the listing fees taken off his monthly invoice.
So beware.

You would eat the listing fees for the bidder's mistake? If you sell it GB charges your account the listing fees.
To get the fees refunded you have to file a non-paying bidder request and give negative feedback.
It is a process.

You have to leave feedback.
There is no rule that it be negative.

So what?
It's not the sellers fault at all.
Now he has to relist it if the OP does not honor what he bid.
He wasted the sellers time and money.

And so what, they can just make a new account and that's that.

I do agree with you that people should read and bid carefully, but it's not like you can really make them buy anything. Unless they're also a seller with years of feedback, an account's not really worth anything.

Gunbroker should just let the seller cancel bids at will, that would solve the whole problem.
