? about ending an auction early...

I have a bidder requesting that I end the auction early (they've already placed a bid), so that they can get the item sooner.

What would you do?

How much time is left on the auction? How many watchers do you have? Would you be happy with the current bid price? And are you in a hurry to sell it?

For me personally, when I do auction-style listings, I start the bid amount and the same price I would mark it at for a fixed price listing (or for the price I would accept as a best offer). So I usually have no problem ending it at that price for someone. Especially if it's been listed at the price before without selling.

But if I have a bunch of watchers/questions/interest, then I will ride it out.

They have already bid, so you've got the sale. If you think there will be others then just wait.
