I have an item listed which is India stamps/postal history, which was one of the items my son listed for me. However I have just noticed that he made an error in the description but more importantly included some covers (USA and GB) in the scans which are part of another listing!
I assumed that like ebay I could close the listing with an explanation of the problem and relist the item correctly. However it seems the only way to close the item means that it will be sold to the highest bidder in 24 hours time?Alternatively I am sure you used to be able to add additional text to the description, but this option does not seem available.
As it stands I will have to let this run to the end with items in the listing which are not included?
There is no way I am sending this lot until I can list it correctly, anybody ever had this issue?
Yes....I take your point re ebay ...but in real land-based auctions, once the auctioneer has started the proceedings and the first bid is placed...that is it! The vendor cannot make alterations for any reason although the auctioneer very occasionally makes representations on behalf of the seller at the end of the auction where a mistake has been made....the buyer can, of course, insist on completing the purchase even then..
Delcampe just seem to be following the procedures that have always applied to auctions.
