Listing States different than what is pictured

I have bid on a listing that states a certain number of video games. In the description it doesnt list the games nor does it say you can choose a certain number of games NOT get all that are pictured. I scanned through the games without counting and decided what pictured looked interesting enough and bid.  The only reason I know I can choose 24 is because I sent the seller a question asking for explanation on the discrepancy I noticed AFTER I bid. Now it's still a great deal but it feels a little odd to not have it originally in the listing. I guess my question is is the seller obligated to honor and send what is pictured if they do not state originally in the listing that one can choose a certain number of what is pictured but do so after someone has bidded or after the auction is ended?

White space is your friend.

Also : "I bid today. I will bid tomorrow. I bid yesterday."

I feel better now.

 

Some people are better at descriptions than others.

 

You asked the Seller how many games there are and how many you would be sent if you win.

He told you it was a Choice auction and that you could choose (up to ?) 24.

 

Good point- he answered.

Did he also attach that answer to the Description?  That would show in tiny letters at the very very very bottom of the Description.

 

is the seller obligated to honor and send what is pictured if they do not state originally in the listing that one can choose a certain number of what is pictured

If he did not say in the Description that you could choose from the group, he is selling the entire group. Technically.

He may not understand that.

If he did not attach your question to his Description, in the event of a Dispute (Not As Described) things would get fraught. He said/she said. Who pays for return shipping? What about partial refunds? Fraught.

He does not state the titles the buyer will receive, right? Still hasn't?

 

If your bid is low enough that you will be happy with anything you receive, leave the bid in place.

But you can Retract your bid if you wish.

While reasons are few, just choose the one that is closest to reality.
