    have they offered a price that you would be happy with? if you said for example i hope to get £20 and they’ve offered £22 or more why not take it? If its well below what you expect to get let it run its course

    Lazarus, just die again for a bit. 😛

    stufield, I’m just going to ask him for an offer anyway. He’s only asked whether I’ll complete now or not.

    Because technically this is in breach of eBay’s T&Cs and might theoretically attract a light tap from their ban hammer (not least because this way, they don’t get their cut, which they can’t then fail to pay any UK tax on)

    Whether anyone’s ever actually been banned for this is another matter entirely…

    If I get such offers and they are for the price I want I relist as a buy it now and let the potential suitor buy that way.

    ebay don’t get hacked off and both buyer and seller get standard ebay protection.

    Cheers

    I ask for payment by pp gift for how much I think it will go for. Once the payments been made, I cancel the auction.
    You soon find out how serious they are with this approach 8)

    Agree a price you’re happy with and avoid the fees, if not let it run, tidy!

    Beware of the “make me an offer” & “what price did you have in mind” scenario IME. Both parties can get quickly tired of each others posturing.

    Calculate what you want for someone to take it from you and place cash in your hand.

    Then add postage and paypay fees as appropriate and tell the guy/gal!

    Or risk it that it’ll raise more after ebay/paypal fees on auction.

    S’what I’ve done before too. Relist, send them the new item number, they buy at agreed price. You’re both covered by eBay t&cs

    I haven’t sold anything on there in years. But impending holiday and need to de-clutter (before cluttering back up again with baby stuff), has necessitated a clear-out. Five items went on today. They are mostly Thule foot packs, bars etc that always seem to fetch a good price.

    I assume the “Would you sell now?” message that I’ve received within half an hour of the listing starting, is pretty standard stuff and I should reply saying “No thanks”? FWIW, the person that’s asked has lots of positive feedback and is UK based (according to his profile anyway).
