    So as I was searching for mp3 ipods etc
    So I found one and wanted to purchase it so when I confirmed
    it wouldnt allow me to pay for it apparently it says I have to log in to
    paypal and I have forgotten my password.

    So I was wondering if you could cancel the item?

    is there no way to reset your paypal password? there's normally something. Don't they call you up to confirm it's really you?

    Tbh if I was the seller I'd think you'd changed your mind, forgetting your paypal password sounds like a lame excuse.

    ebay has some sort of holy contractual agreement that cannot be renaged upon but the seller can cancel the order. Just email them and explain.

    Sounds like you just don't want the item any more to me. How difficult is it to find out a password!

    well if the seller agrees then yeah you'll be fine, but if he doesn't you will be obliged to pay for the item or you could get a unpaid strike.

    If you message the seller, maybe try asking if he is willing to accept another method like cheque?

    its what you are given when the seller raises a dispute to which neither of you have settled regarding paying for an item after you have agreed to buy it

    see here
