Before bidding on any items on eBay, we strongly encourage you to read the item description and check the seller's feedback. If you have any questions regarding the listing, email the seller directly. Then bid. And remember: Every bid on eBay is binding.
However, under exceptional circumstances, eBay allows you to retract bids. For example:
It's OK to retract a bid if...
It's NOT OK to retract a bid if...
To retract a bid, use the Bid Retraction form. When you retract a bid before the last 12 hours of an auction, you will eliminate all bids you have placed in that auction. If you are correcting a bid error, you will have to bid again.
Your total number of bid retractions in the past 6 months is displayed in your Feedback Profile. To learn more the Feedback Forum, click here.
Special Retraction Rules
If you are not allowed to retract your bid during the last 12-hour period of the auction, you may contact the seller to request that your bid be canceled. The seller will have the discretion whether to cancel your bid.
