ebay listings

Post by ed » Sun Jun 23, 2019 6:28 pm

I've been struggling to put items on ebay with 'buy it now' and 'offers'.

All I've managed to do is 'buy it now' and auction at the same time....

can somebody tell me how to do this or tell me why I am not being offered the 'offer' choice with 'buy it now'

I'm sure somebody pointed this out to me recently with regard to the ariel auction but I can't seem to find the relevant post...

Basic rule is you can't mix BIN with BO using the simple listing tool - you need the advanced one.

thanks Nick, that's exactly what I was looking for but for some reason(probably stupidity) I couldn't find it.

just noticed this..seems a bit cheap so far...must be worth a bit more than this for the iron, OR the valves themselves?

Didn't reach reserve maybe. I've seen these things advertised at £2k and more when I had a look.
