I was reading that if the winner of your auction backs out of the transaction you can open an "unpaid item" case to resolve the issue. That seems like it would be a cumbersome process, so as an alternative, I we wondering if they would let you offer the item to the next highest bidder for the price they bid for the item. I don't see a definitive answer on the ebay website, and I don't really want to ask them since it might cause them to "monitor" me. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate knowing the answer. thanks!
