You may want to cancel an auction on eBay if your financial situation changes, an item is not what you thought it was, or for other reasons. Here’s how to do it, as long as there are rules you need to follow.

Cancel auctions 12 hours before auction ends

You can cancel or withdraw any bid you placed on eBay if there are more than 12 hours until the end of the associated auction. However, as required by eBay, you can only withdraw a bid if:

  • You accidentally bid the wrong amount (eg $900 instead of $9).
  • The seller has “significantly” changed the product description.
  • The seller does not respond to your messages.

In practice, it is possible to withdraw offers even if none of these conditions apply.

How to withdraw an auction on eBay

With this disclaimer in mind, you can withdraw by visiting eBay’s Bid Withdrawal web page. You can do this by accessing the withdrawal form or by going to eBay’s help pages and going to the Retract Offers section, where you can find an alternative and newer link to withdraw offers.

Here’s what to do if you’re using the old withdrawal form:

  • Open the withdrawal form.
  • Incorrectly enter the item number of the item you are bidding on.
  • Choose your reasons for cancellation from: Your withdrawal statement Scrolling menu.
  • Choose Withdraw offer.
  • You can also withdraw auctions on eBay by going to their help page.
