not me i have done it on several occasions.. give a reasonable reason of ending early and you might not get hurt.. just maybe.. but i guess if you do it alot then it might be a call for trouble

This is almost becoming one of those redneck jokes..

If you (INSERT HERE), you might get your eBay account suspended.

Modee, what is the crime you are busting people for when they end their listing early to sell to the highest bidder? I am not talking cheating reserve auctions, but just ending normal auctions early to sell to the highest bidder.

I dont think he ended it early cause he wasn't happy with the amount, i think he ended it early cause he was happy with the amount wanted to make the sale early. Thus he and the bidder are both satisfied. God knows i've done that befor many times befor to gain feedback quicker. This was befor ebay started crawling up everyones ass.

I love how people qualify their behavior. Face it, we are all doing something against ebay's TOS to one degree or another, so I pretty much go by the motto, live and let live. The only time a have ever lodged a complaint, is when a competitor used my exact ad and pictures.

Here's a new twist to this issue.

Just lost a real account due to ending multiple auctions early. My company deals with collectibles of all kinds, sports, political, etc...Back in the good ol' days, we used to "time" our listings with bs titles and no photos until we got the items in stock so that we can revise and add our photos. When we find the supply/demand, we would end some listings early for "error in listing". We used to do this on listings which had no bids. We used to do this on several hundred listings over the course of a few months. Never did we have any problems with this, and we must have ended thousands over the last 10 years.

Well, seems this action is no longer acceptable. NO chance for reinstatement. 140 FB's - 100%, all 4.9+ DSR's. Acct was 3 months old. No Vero items, no negatives, no chargebacks, no disputes, as clean as it gets.

Further, I may be mistaken, but it's dawning on me now that eBay is looking for ANY kind of "above avg" revisions, acct info changes, ending auctions early, basically, it feels like eBay wants you to:

1- Open acct
2- List your items
3- Sell and ship (usually for free now)
4- NOW STFU

It might be just me, but I get the feeling that the best way to keep your accounts, real or not, is to create and just keep still AMAP. No changes to your acct info, no auction revisions, no early ending, no breathing, no sleeping, no asking questions, no begging, just pay pay pay and be a good little MUTE boy/girl.

"Have a problem with that? GTFO of eBay, we don't want you even IF you're an honest seller with no negative history"
