Hi everyone Please forgive me if these are dumb questions ... I am new to buying higher-end merchandise on eBay. I have had a look in this forum and have done a search on eBay but no joy. I have seen a couple of auctions lately with a Buy It Now option. Yet when the auction ends early (with Buy It Now), the sale price is lower than the original BIN. Does this mean someone has made an offer and the seller has opted to accept it and end the auction early? If so, are sellers amenable to being approached with offers, even if the item has a BIN price? And does this mean that BIN nowadays also means Best Offer? Would using the BIN option mean you were a sucker because the seller was expecting offers? Just wondering about the etiquette, I guess. :shame: Thanks in advance.
