What to do if you are unable to complete the transaction for an item you have won
If you are the winning bidder on any listing (auction-style or 'Buy now' ) listing and are unable to complete the transaction you should notify the seller immediately and providing you have not paid with PayPal the seller can cancel the transaction in seller dashboard.
If you are the winning bidder on any listing (auction-style or 'Buy now') listing and you do not pay for the item the seller may cancel the transaction through seller dashboard in 'Items sold' using the button labelled 'Cancel due unpaid'.
The 'Cancel due unpaid' function will not be available in the dashboard for a seller to use until 48 hours after the auction has ended. Once 48 hours has elapsed the seller may use the function. This will send a buyer an unpaid item notice instructing them that if the item remains unpaid for another 48 hours then the seller may cancel the transaction. Once the transaction has been cancelled it will disable the PayPal pay function for that particular listing. This will result in the administration team receiving an 'Unpaid Item' notice. Repeated unpaid item notices will lead to a buyer's Kipple Auction account being suspended.
