Ebay question

Is there a way to set up an auction that only allows people with a certain feedback amount to bid on an auction? For some reason, I always get people bidding that have 0 feedback. I'm always afraid they will try to pay with Paypal and then try to file a claim to get their money back. Especially with a large expensive item. With a 0 rating, they have nothing to loose if they get kicked off ebay on that account.

None that I know of. You can cancel any bids you wish, though. You can state in the auction that bidders must have a certain amount of feedback and that you'll cancel any bids with 0 or whatever feedback. I've seen it done all the time.

You can select a number of things to block bidders in the Preferences section in My Ebay, but not just to block people with 0 feedback. I am not sure that you can protect yourself that way anyway since scammers usually take the time to build some feedback before they try and rip people off. Just make sure you only ship to the confirmed address and keep your proof of mailing (delivery confirmation or tracking number).
