I won an auction, I contacted the seller to cancel

I apologize, I explained the reasons

The seller does not answer, opened a dispute on eBay, leave a poor evaluation

Obliged to pay the item ??? is the first time I use ebay
There is only one bid

Best Answer:

frank: I agree with everyone except for Arthur.

When you bid, you entered a legally binding contract with the seller stating that you would pay for the item. Just because it's your first time using eBay doesn't mean that the rules don't apply to you.

This is exactly what shows up when you type in a bid:
"By clicking Confirm, you commit to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder."

Other answer:

frank:
The seller doesn't have to cancel. When you place a bid on eBay you are entering a binding contract. You are agreeing to pay for it. If you don't pay for your item it will be you who has a bad review. You will get a non paying bidder strike on your account and if you get so many you will not be allowed to buy on eBay again. Leaving bad feedback because a seller won't cancel will just get you on other sellers Blocked Bidder lists. If you don't pay sellers don't want to sell to you.

You need to pay for what you bought. If you don't want it then give it away as a Christmas gift. I also suggest you don't use eBay again until you understand how it works.

the seller doesn't have to cancel… when you place a bid on ebay you are entering a binding contract… you are agreeing to pay for it… if you don't pay for your item it shall be you who has a bad review… you shall get a non paying bidder strike on your account and if you get so numerous you shall not be allowed to buy on ebay again… leaving bad feedback 'cause a seller will definitely not cancel shall just get you on other sellers blocked bidder lists… if you don't pay sellers don't want to sell to you…

you need to pay for what you bought… if you don't want it then give it away as a christmas gift… i also suggest you don't use ebay again until you understand how it works…

Alice:
The seller does NOT have to cancel the auction, even if you have reasons for wanting to do so. Yes, if you won the auction, you are obligated to pay for your purchase. You can try selling it yourself, if you don't want it now, or give it to someone.
Amanda:
You have to pay for the item, otherwise seller is free to write a negative comment on your profile.

Out of box suggestion: Try to persuade the seller by making direct contact or through email.

Wanted to buy something on E-bay. The seller, a legit store, put $300 shipping on a small booklet. I put in a "best price, with "you do mean $3.00 shipping". I got a response and oppps on the shipping. He revised the price and I got the item with $3 shipping.
If you accidentally put in the wrong price WAY over the legit price, E-bay should recognize it. If you put in a bid, you got it unless you feel you were tricked. I once put in $1,200 for a lens, I was suppose to put in $120. The guy realized my mistake (at most it was worth $200.) and deleted my bid. I did rebid, but was outbid. I believe E-bay can put a mark against your account for not paying. I would contact them and explain. Maybe pay for the guy's fees to re-post that item. It does cost money to post items that have won (couple of bucks).

You have to pay to play. The Auction is set. you can't just disenfranchise sellers like that
David N:
It sounds like you did not read the contract when you first signed up for e-bay.

If you clicked on the OK/Agree box, you are legally bound by the terms of your contract.

taismith:
You are obliged. YOU put in a bid and won. Failure to pay means you get negative feedback.
