Top Questions

I won an item but no longer want to buy it. What should I do?

You are obliged to buy the item that won, as your bid is considered a contract.

If you think you  have a valid reason for cancelling your purchase, contact the seller and explain your position. The seller may understand your concern and be willing to work with you. If the seller does not accept your explanation, you must purchase the item. if you fail to do so, an unpaid item will be documented in your account. Too many unpaid items can lead to account restriction or suspension. 

Start Comparing

Once you've sorted the hotels so your favourites are at the top of the list, it's time to make your choice.

You will be able to see

  1. The name of each hotel
  2. Where it's located. Clicking on Show map will bring up a map for you.
  3. Its rating by reviewers
  4. The number of people who reviewed it
  5. A list of rooms available at different travel websites and their prices. You can change the form of currency by clicking on the dropdown box at the top of the page.

If you're already satisfied with that hotel and are sure you want to book a room there, you can click Book Now to start booking a room.

If you're not entirely sure, either click the hotel name, the large photo next to the name or View all rooms and you'll be taken to a page that describes the hotel in more detail and shows all the rooms that will be available during the time you want to book.

You can either book a room by clicking Go next to the room you desire or click on Back to search results at the bottom of the page to continue comparing.

I've paid for my item but it isn't appearing as paid. What happened?

If you're paying via PayPal, your payment status should update automatically.

However, if you're paying by another method, for example, by cheque or by bank transfer, there will not be an automatic update of your payment status. You can ask your bank to provide proof of payment.

You can manually mark an item as paid for your records and to show the seller that you've paid:

Click Won Auctions under My Account at the top of the page..

Select the item you've won.

Click on the down arrow next to the Pay Now button.

Select Mark Payment as Sent.

As long as the seller agrees that that the item was paid for, everything is fine.

Refer to MrBuyGuy Buyer Protection to find out what to do if you and the seller can't come to an agreement.

Choosing a retailer

After you've decided to buy a product, you'll have to pick the retailer you want to purchase it from.

From the Product page, you'll see a list of all the retailers that sell the product, how much each retailer is currently charging for it, each retailer's average customer rating for the product and whether the retailer is currently stocking the product.

If you're thinking about buying from a particular retailer, click on Visit Store and you'll be taken to the Product page on that retailer's website.

From there, you can either purchase the product or go back to MrBuyGuy.com and view the product on another retailer's website.
