invertworld whenever i win an auction on aquabid i always send a message right away to the seller informing them that i won their auction and the price i won it for also my shipping address i know this is kind of a pain but it is the best thing to do so you do not have any problems. yes if you did not bid high enough to meet the reserve price you must bid higher or the seller will not sell you the product. also it is a good idea to ask for an invoice for item before sending the payment then you know the seller is aware of the transaction but in requesting an invoice i would still include the above before mentioned info.

chew You don't have to meet the reserve price to win but the seller can choose to sell or not to sell if it isn't met. Usually they don't if its not met. It's just a way to get people more into bidding when they see something for cheap

Otherwise, there's no pay pal policy against ignorance so you'll likely go through a long process of documentation and series of correspondence to get your funds back in its entirety if you don't learn some humility real soon.
I didn't mean to be rude to him or anything, it was an honest mistake. I did email him back already, apologizing and asking for a refund. It was my fault, I should've read the rules before rushing into it.

Yea always get an invoice from the seller on there. It is different than e-bay. You might also go to their forum and lurk around there to see what's up..

Aquabid is different from Evilbay - transactions are not handled through the website. In the future, let the seller send you an invoice before sending them money.
Thanks, I assumed it worked on a similar basis as to "evilbay" lol...lesson learned xD

Oh my, I guess I'll email him to ask for it first to be courteous. Thanks for clearing it up for me everyone.

duy What does that mean? This is my first purchase on Aquabid so I'm still not familiarized with the site or terminology? :{

AaronT It says reserve price not met. I wonder why you got an email that you were the winner?

Aquabid problems.

Ok, so last week I placed a bid on Aquabid for a plant package that ended on the 5th, and after I came out as the highest bidder, I immediately sent the seller his money on paypal, and expected a fast transaction. 5 days later, nothing is happening. After 2 emails attempts, the seller finally responded and said that even though he received my payments, he did not see a record in my account on Aquabid that shows my name or winning bid? I have a screen shot of the auction actually, just in case lol and here is the direct link:

Last time he emailed me back, he asked for my auction bid number. I didn't know what that was so I just sent him the direct link of the auction and the screenshot to confirm that I was indeed the highest bidder. Two days and another email attempt later, I still haven't a reply from him. Right now, my patience is running kind of dry and I just want your opinions.

Am I overreacting or is there some kind of action that I need to take to get my money back?
