On rare occasions, a seller encounters a buyer with whom they have a very
negative experience. In that case, they may actually fear the buyer bidding on
their goods. Perhaps the buyer is late with payment, or the buyer left negative
feedback to the seller on something relatively minor.
The banned feature protects the seller's goods from being bid on by anyone
the seller "bans". We don't expect this feature to be used much. It, does,
however, give the seller a bit more protection.
Go to the member center, click on Ban/Unban bidders. Enter the username or
email address and click "Ban user". To take someone off your list, click the box
next to their username and select "Unban Bidders".
