As a seller, you can block bidders/buyers for any reason you like....here are some reasons that I have used eBay's blocking option...Hopefully this information will help a few sellers avoid problems!
I often block other users when they send suspicious or "off the wall" questions. It's always worth being on the safe-side...Use your instincts...go with your gut feeling, it's usually worth listening to it!
If a user has a very low feedback score, is new to eBay, and asks a question that makes you suspicious of his motives, block him.
If a buyer files a unwarranted and unfair claim for a refund or replacement, block him immediately. For example, the buyer may claim that the item was damaged or "not as described." You know your merchandise...and the seller knows his claim is not true....Sad to say, but there are some buyers that do this on a regular basis.
There are also some buyers who simply experience "buyer's remorse" and want to send everything back that they purchase for no valid reason....they see eBay as their private "play ground". Hard as it is to relate or full understand these people, it's simply a game to them...they love winning auctions (getting a rush when they win, no doubt) and then returning everything they buy. It's always a good idea to avoid these types by blocking them whenever possible.
If a buyer files a claim for non-receipt, block him. Unfortunately, you may or may not be able to prove he received the item. This is a common scam on eBay - to claim that an item was not received even if it was and the seller just can't prove it. Been there, done that...don't want to do it again!
If a buyer leaves you neutral or negative feedback, block him. You certainly don't want to deal with him again...and the good news is that you don't have to!
Check your buyer's feedback! If a bidder has several negatives or comments regarding non-payment, block him....once a dead beat bidder...well, you know.
Trust your instincts. If for some reason something doesn't seem right, whether it is questions or comments from the buyer, his past history, or some other clue, be on the safe side....It's just not worth the trouble....simply block him!
When you are ready to block an eBay user from buying or bidding on your items, go to your eBay Selling Manager. Scroll down to the "To-Do" section on the front page. Click "block or pre approve bidders," enter the user id of the person you wish to block, and hit enter.
