I have placed an auction style listing for an item. I keep getting messages from potential buyers if i have a buy it now in mind. I keep telling them my buy it now price but there is no buy it now option on ebay. No one has bidded on the item yet. Will i brach the policy if i accept the buy it now price offer and cancel the listing??

Yes there is a buy it now option. When you state your starting price there whould be a buy it now option just to the right. You have to pay extra but only a few pence usually.

EDIT last post - you should be able to edit your listing & put that buy it now option on. It wouldn't be fair to do so after someone bids though so do it quickly :thumbsup:

as above, try and edit your listing to include a buy it now or you could relist the item and include a buy it now in the auction. I always tend to put it buy now price about £10 extra on what I want for the item plus buy it now usually have higher ebay fees.
HTH:santa:

Check completed listings first to get an acurate buy it now price. By the sounds of it you've had several people ask and it is common practice for people to quickly ask whether there is a buy it now on valuable items (Disney DVDs come to mind) hoping that the seller is none the wiser. Good luck :thumbsup:

Also don't complete sale outside of Ebay as you and buyer will not be covered and its against ebay rules.

The easiest way of doing a buy it now is to get the buyer to put a bid on the item, any amount it doesn't matter, then you go to your item on your home page and on the right hand side is a box that will probably say "sell similar" or something (not selling anything at the moment so can't remember exactly what it says). Anyway, next to this box is a little down arrow, click on this and it brings a lot of options up, click on "end item" and this will bring another page up. On this page click on "sell early to highest bidder" and continue, the item has now been sold to the buyer.

All you then need to do is send him an invoice and add the difference into the p&p price so if your item was at 99p with £2 p&p (£2.99 total) but you've agreed a buy it now price of £10 with £2 p&p (£12.99 total) then you need to send an invoice with the 99p and in p&p put £12 making the total £12.99 - does this make sense? It's honestly a lot easier to do than it is to explain!!

It's also a lot better as you will only be charged a final value fee on the 99p because the rest is in p&p, otherwise if you change to buy it now option properly you would pay a final value fee on £10 (in the example above).

Hope this helps somebody, another ebayer showed me how to do this about a year ago and I do it all the time now, about time we started to fleece fleabay like they fleece us!!

agree a price and cancel auction and set up a fresh BIN one

I would be very careful about doing this as this is how one of the current ebay scams starts.

You will find if you just let the auction end you will get about the price they are offering anyway (should they be genuine). If the price is over what it is worth (which i suspect from your tone) then i would bare caution and just let it end.

I listed a few items a couple of weeks back and somebody asked me to sell them one of my Wii games on a buy it now for £1000. I told him i was uncomfortable about doing that but he was welcome to bid, he didn't and the game ended for £24 which is what it was worth.

If something is too good to be true it usually is.
