Sellers have available tools which can block some potential buyers from their listings. The effectiveness of each of these tools varies and it is always possible for blocked buyers to create a new eBay ID and buy from a seller and help to prevent just a few potential troublesome buyers. Sounds crazy to block away bidders from your eBay auctions? Blocking bad buyers is not a must, but it helps to avoid potential trouble with your eBay transactions...and we all want to avoid trouble!

Buyers with Unpaid Item strikes



 

1....A seller can block a potential bidder who has too many unpaid item strikes. Sellers can choose the number of strikes and the number of months. This requirement can help you avoid bidders and buyers with a history of not paying for the items they have agreed to purchase.

 

2...Buyers in countries to which I don’t ship

Using this buyer requirement block is especially important if you ship domestically only. Block buyers who are registered in countries to which you don’t ship. This requirement can help you avoid buyers who agree to purchase your items without realizing you don’t ship to their location.

 


3...Buyers with policy violation reports. Sellers can block potential bidders who have violated too many of eBay’s policies such as feedback extortion. This requirement can help you block buyers who have been reported to have violated eBay policies.

4...Buyers with a negative feedback score

This requirement can help you avoid buyers who have received more negative than positive feedback from other eBay members bidding on your item.

 

5...Buyers who may bid on several of your items and not pay for them

Consider selecting this requirement if you are selling expensive items and don’t want to sell over a certain number to any single buyer.
