    Only someone with more money and time then sense would take someone to court over £1.
    I really would not threat about it.

    The only thing I would be concerned with is negative feedback.

    So I was selling a snowboard bag over christmas and it was going to sell for £1 so I ended the item, messaged the winner that I was cancelling it. He then proceeded to pay which I refunded and said the item was no longer available. He is now threatening to take me to small claims court over this. Do I have a case?
    just scare tactics. hes annoyed he didnt get his bargain. it will not proceed in the claims court. next time set a reverse price!

    do let us know what happens though.

    Tell him to take it to court. If it ever happens, the judge will throw it out, leaving him out of pocket.

    This actually comes under "loss of bargain" and I recall a similar case involving a buyer who purchased a table with a market value of £600 for £50, The seller refused to supply the table for £50 and refunded the buyer, the buyer then sued the seller for £550+ costs as it was a loss of bargain. The judge ruled in favor of the claimant.

    Note that I have forgotten whether the seller was operating as a trader or as an individual (Your ebay account type is irrelevant). If you type in Ebay loss of bargain then it will surely come up
