    Offers with auction listing?

    Offers with auction listing? 14th May 18 at 7:57 PM
    I've had an offer for 1 selling fees, with the condition you accept 'offers' on your listings. They say this can be auction or buy it now.


    I want to list auction but I can't find the offers button. I've looked into it and it says only some sellers have this. Otherwise it's just the BIN option with offers, which I don't really want to do.


    Anyway what is the criteria to be able to have offers on auction listings? As my rating is good, above average and good feedback too.

    Sorry I don't know the answer to your question but that explains why so many auctions I have been looking at have a 'make offer' button.

    Does anyone know if you place a bid if the 'make offer' button disappears?

    I got the same offer and could not work out how to accept offers on an auction listing, so just used buy it now listings instead.

    I just know the auction with offer is available to some sellers only. But doesn't say what the criteria is, so I wondered if anyone here knew?

    I've noticed that too on a lot of listings and thought it was a new feature which is a good one. Just a shame it doesn't apply to me (not sure why).


    I don't know if it disappears to be honest, something I wondered too so good question.

    Thanks, that is what I had to do in the end with a couple of my listings but I would have listed more using the auction feature with offer if I could have. I wish Ebay would say what criteria you need to meet to allow this feature.
