I am pretty pissed off about this. I clearly stated that my amp was inoperable and had a blown power supply. His excuse is.. I didn't know it was blown and I cant read English! WTF!!! He bid on the item numerous times over a week period. I contacted Ebay on this matter and said I had to wait 4 days to open an unpaid item case.
Has this ever happened to any of you? If so what did you do... did you finally get your money?

Just give it the time, then open the un-paid dispute. Let that run its course. When he does not pay after that, you will get whatever fees you owe to Ebay waived. Then leave negative feedback for him and relist.
If he cant read, he should not be on the internet.
I had a similar thing happen to me. guy bid on the item, won, paid, then decided he didnt want it after reading the listing more closely. at first I told him tough, if he didnt want it, sell it when it arrived. but he said he would report me to ebay and get his money, etc. since ebay almost always sides with the buyer, it wasnt worth the hassle.
I told him I would refund everything but the shipping costs to cover the insersion fee, buy it now fee, paypal fee, etc.

Sold a intact unit was informed by PayPal a claim was filed as non functioning. PayPal of course sided with him, and I was returned a switch non functioning unit. That's why I stated unless we have done business before, we won't do business. SOME people are just pieces of work and they will get theirs. Ive had several people do transaction with me over the past week and they have had to come to me where I show them the piece/pieces are intact and working. Then we exchange cash and I bid them a safe journey home. I've even had a gentleman from California send his cousin who lived three hours one way to pick up one of my sale items. Stated for what I was selling it for, it was well worth the trouble. Here's hoping that those that do wrong learn they get what they put out.
if you didnt already ship the item to him then whats the big deal? ive had a bidder back out so i agreed with him to cancel the transaction, ebay canceled all the associated fees, i relisted it, and sold it for even more money. its nothing to stress over
He sounds like an idiot but seems to be the cost of doing business on ebay. I won't sell anything on there anymore after helping my wife sell some of her designer clothes. About 50% of the people immediately find some "flaw" and want a partial refund or they threaten negative feedback.
Wait until the unpaid item dispute is resolved before offering the amp to the next highest bidder or relisting.
It sucks but the seller is not ebay's priority.
A bit late for this auction but for future sales activate the Unpaid Item Assistant and set it for the minimum time to spring into action.
It automates the process, you don't have to communicate with the deadbeat.
Ebay fires off a bunch of emails to the non payer.
If the deadbeat doesn't pay an unpaid item strike goes in their account history.
Update your settings to block bidders with 2 or more unpaid strikes.
