I appear to have just bought a brand new Hilleberg Saivo from a German ebay seller, for an unusually low price of...
It would appear to have been listed with a very low buy it now price, so I did and paid in full immediately. I wonder if they'll honour it - anyone know if they're obliged to?
you have no chance really.
regardless of the legality of the binding contract, there just not going to send it for such a little sum of money, beyond that its a civil matter so going after them legally usually isnt worth the time, money or effort.
Here's hoping that as an international retailer they feel inclined to take the hit and earn some good publicity...
Well i wouldnt give up without a fight,play nice at first but look into it ,do your homework and turn up the heat (i have a friend who's a lawyer bla bla bla spiel )..
I will see you in court blady blady bla!!!
I'll post back with an update - who knows?!
The question is, what on earth do you do with a Hilleberg Saivo when you're not wild camping in a Norwegian winter..?

restless, you're forgetting what I spent on p&p...
I suppose I could always use it to provoke tent envy in the Lakes.
If they do honour the purchase, I don't think it would feel right to sell it on for a profit - I suppose a charity sale could be a possibility though?!? - who knows.
Judging from the Tarra we use it should be an excellent paddling tent: bomber, stands up on its own so it'll take a Force Several on a shingle beach if it needs to. And the weight and bulk of a 3 person geo are moot points in a boat.
So take up sea kayaking. You've £998.94 head start with what you saved on the tent...
Yeh all that legal bull that you are commiting to a binding contract when you make a bid,shame it does'nt work the other way!!!
Besides the price issue there is the issue of the legal order of things... In normal conduct you cannot offer a 1000 dollar item for almost nothing and when someone takes up the offer you refuse to sell. It's the same with windowdisplay pricing. If the price in the window display is lower than in the shop you have the right to pay the price in the windowdisplay. It all has to do with the normal order of things of offer and acceptance. Offering a (subject X with price 1) and deleviring b (still subject X with price B) is simply acontrary the normal legal order of things and so illegal. I would put your case to fleabay so the seller gets banned on fleabay. Noone gets the wiser with selling people trying to shaft buying people on fleabay. The more people do that the worse it gets for the name of fleabay. It's than more likely to get the name of piratebay (scams) instead of fleabay (secondhand)
