    I have bought a second hand travel cot from ebay but not paid or collected yet. Problem is i got it to keep at mil as we all stay there often and she has returned from Manchester today with a travel cot given to her by a family member. Is there any way i can get out of the ebay sale without looking bad?

    It is worth explaining to the seller - sometimes honesty is the best policy! If it was me I wouldn't be bothered and would just relist it... so they may be the same.

    Yeah I'd contact the seller. If I WAS the seller i'd be more pissed off at the non-payment with no explanation than if someone explained a genuine situation, I#d just give someone else a second-chance offer or relist x

    Contact them, explain your mistake, and ask them to cancel the transaction.
