Anyone know how to do this change Auction on ebay to buy now? Iv'e had a seller saying she would do something on buy now, it's on auction at the moment!

Gave me a buy now price, said she'd change the listing, now reckon's she hasn't got that option. Yet someone did the same thing for me the other week!

Any help out there as I want to email her back with how to do it!!! Am sure she doesn't want to sell it for the price she say's now, sure it's just an excuse!!

Sounds like an exuse to me too.
I know it's "dooable" but the options have
no doubt changed since I went on Ebay

If she has bids on the listing she may have to cancel them
first before she adds a buy it now option.

If she really wanted to do it then she could simply
start a new buy it now auctionfor you to buy from
and cancel the current one when you purchase it.......

Looks like they may have changed the regs on this

"In most cases, you can't change the listing format. For example, you can't change from an auction-style listing to a Fixed Price listing. Also, you can't extend the duration of a listing if two or more hours have passed since you submitted the listing."

i have auctions listed,with no bids and still have the option on the revise listing section to add a BIN.so i dont see what her problem is..only other thing is ask her to increase her starting price to the Buy it now price you agreed..then you bid..then she closes auction and sells to highest bidder(that would be you)
