Cancelling a bid on an eBay item is possible if you made it in error. For example, you typed in your maximum bid as $80 rather than $20, or the item’s description changed and you are no longer interested. The bid can also be cancelled if you cannot reach the seller on the phone or via the email. See to cancel a bid you’ve made on eBay?:
