    ebay again help please

    Simple question i hope

    I have a listing auction style ends sunday no bids yet but 2 people asking for a buy it now price i know i can add this if there is no bids but if i add one now can i reduce it latter if they message back and offer less if so can i still change it after bids have been placed. Also thinking maybe best offer would be a good idea but dont know how these work?

    best offer you add what you would like they make an offer or buy it outright..if they offer you can counter offer and they can...

    most of these requests come from people trying to nick your item below what it would sell at, you can change it to buy it now and add offers. I always use this methond now as it gives you more options

    you can go in and change the format, or if i was you, id put on a new listing with the buy it now and tell them both, first to get it wins and then you delete the original posting!

    Tell them your proposed BIN price and see where you go from their replies.

    I bought a p nis enlarger from ebay last week, received it in the post this morning and the cheeky sod has sent me a magnifying glass.

    but can i amend it latter to a lower the buy it now price

    with 13 watchers people seem interested, are there other items the same or similar to yours?

    As soon as someone does bid i dont think you can make any price changes (i maybe wrong tho)

    out of interest what are you selling?

    Yes but you pay the insertion fee at the highest price even if you lower the BIN and it sells at that.

    this means more fees does it not but maybe the only option as it will not let me add a best offer i dont think only a buy it now

    Whats your start bid? how much would you happily accept? are you delivering or pick up? if doing pick up you could do cash on collection no paypal fee's then.

    1) start bid £0.01
    2) dont know yet will look at completed listings
    3) pick up only
    4) will try to get them to accept cash on collection have offered that in listing

    Have worked out now if i add a buy it now price now it will be removed as a bid is made so no point so only options are

    1) Add a new listing with best offer and close this one or keep it until it is sold.
    2) Add note to listing for the buyers to make offers via messenging and if i come to an agreement i can ever close listing and sell cash or if they prefer start a new buy it now listing or add to this one if no bids at the agreed price and give the buyer the item number.
