So, the answer is NO
These are the kind of buyer requests which make me think twice about BIN or Best Offer. They will try to make all kind of conditions on the sale in an endless negotiation. Best just to stick with one price or auction it off.
I was so pissed at one negotiator...he would say...ok...ship the pants...without any payment....so I relisted the $20 pants on auction for .99 just to force him to go fight for the right to buy my pants! Ended up at $20 anyway. I gladly wrote and told him his pants are marked down to just .99 cents! Go for it! ha!
I don't like the OBO option. It is a clear message that the price is not a real price, just a start of a negotiation. And I don't have time, energy or enthusiasm for hammering out a deal on a $50 shirt or a $30 tie. It is easy enough to reduce prices or put a sale in effect when some old inventory needs to be moved.
It is an auction, but I would be happy to get one bid. This is stuff I would otherwise donate. Low quality mall brand stuff.
On the other hand everyone likes feeling like they got a good deal, just human nature. I run 20 or 25% off sales every month or two. I find it very funny when a few days or week after an item goes "off sale" I'll get an offer for more then the sale price. Example: $100 item, on sale 25% off for 2 weeks, BIN on sale is $75 someone can just buy it. After the sale ends someone comes and offers $85 and I accept. This is not unusual at all. The guy paying $85 feels like he got a great deal as I was asking $100 for it and I would think happier then someone who used the BIN button at $75 who "had to pay" the asking price.
100% agree with this. I think people see ebay primarily as a bargain hunting place, and don't like paying 'sticker' price. I usually do a BIN for items under $50, and BINOBO for the rest. I'm not an established seller, so I don't think people will respect my pricing for expensive items.
Accept X or above, reject below X
go/nogo on all my BINOBO I never see the lowballs, either they offered what I'll take for it (or bought full price, usually international sales or people w/ low feedback) or they didn't and it's still for sale. The only time I see something is when they add some term to the sale which I have to reject manually (99 times out of 100, sometimes they just added a note)
Anyone else get this? Too bad it doesn't go to Thursday.
Yup.I got the above offer from eBay.
I love obo options. I am not a big time seller but all of my listing have sold for asking price. No offer was submitted
What would you gents call this weave or pattern?
I looked through here: http://www.turnbullandasser.com/p/108/weaves but can't seem to find anything truly accurate. Thanks!
That's a great link, bookmarked. Based on that it could be a self on self, ribbed, herringbone weave?
Great minds think alike! I just titled it as "RICH Burberry London Gold Ribbed Weave Herringbone 100% Silk Made in Italy Tie"
Is this a SFer by any chance: http://www.ebay.com/itm/231251716736?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2648&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT ?
Ebay user: dazed_state - if so, let me know if you'd be up for a trade on that sport coat!
Pretty sure this is SF user @dazedstate
Dammit. This 9.99 auction game is dangerous.
I got the same one. Pretty sure you can just schedule your 10day for Thursday and it'll work. It works for me
