Most likely bid was retracted after the bidder reading over the listing more carefully or could also be that the seller deleted the last few bids because he or she believed that that bidder was not going to pay for whatever reason.

Of more interest of me is the sale of Z.com by Nissan for about $7m dollars.

Buyer is large Japanese company that it is going to rebrand its global operation on a single letter dot com.

OK, it is ASCII but there were only ever three available so it is possible trend followers will do the same on an IDN.com.

Risk of going non-dot com is massive and the single ASCII charachters aren't generally available anyway.

Wow bids are all over the place lol. I've never really used Ebay before so this might seem like a silly question. Once someone places a bid on Ebay, can they retract it?

techguy 27th November 2014 05:16 AM

Re: Ebay sale "U".com
 
yes bidders can retract their bids, and sellers can cancel bids, and can block unwanted bidders

So what character is actually being sold? If you convert from punycode xn--s5a to unicode, you get "ӏ", which is in fact "CYRILLIC SMALL LETTER PALOCHKA". The auction for "ᴜ.com" correctly described the "u" as "Latin Small Capital U". The seller of ӏ.com didn't provide similar information.
