eBay BEST OFFER & additional term

  1. I recenly won best offer item on eBay. First, I offer for $400 then seller counteroffered for $450 + sh and I counteroffered for $450, add term: incl sh.

    Seller accepted it but sent invoice for $450 + sh.

    Should I still pay for $450 + sh while I've wrote in term box: incl sh?? :confused1:

    Sorry, I'm not too familier with best offer method
     
  2. I would write to the seller advising your counter included S&H and that you will not be paying S&H.
     
  3. thanks, done it but could seller give me strike if I pay for $450 only??
     
  4. ask her to send you another invoice that is $450 including shipping. hopefully she saw that before she accepted.
     
  5. Sigh... She said that her term is plus shipping while I obv stated incl sh, below:

    Buyer message: incl sh is considerable? Thanks

    What to do? Should I ask her to cancel transc & do mutual agreement?
     
  6. Don't quote me on this, but I'm fairly sure you can't include a "incl shipping" clause in the best offer negotiations - you have to counteroffer a reduced amount and still pay shipping. Like say shipping is $25, you would have to counteroffer $425 and pay shipping to get the bag for $450 total. Before I tried best offer I read the rules pretty thoroughly, I think that's how it works. Sorry, if you really want the bag could you just pay shipping? Will it be too expensive?
     
  7. Looks like the shipping would be high since you are outside of U.S.A. I'd suggest you negotiate with the seller first (e.g. half and half), or you could adjust shipping in the invoice? Basically, you made an offer and she accepted it. It is a contract. If she doesn't agree to reduce the shipping, very much likely you will have to pay it.
     

  8. really? I didn't know that, thanks for sharing! Guess I'd better reread the rules.
     
  9. If the seller specified the shipping cost, then shipping is not negotiable. You can make best offer including shipping, as the OP did, but only if the seller did not specify a shipping cost.



    Here is from the eBay website:


    If the seller has specified shipping costs for the item, shipping is not negotiable. If, however, the seller has requested that the buyer contact them regarding shipping costs, you may offer the seller a price for the item that includes shipping costs.


    Here’s how to submit a Best Offer that includes shipping:
    • Submit a Best Offer request to the seller.
    • In the message box, add "including shipping".
    • Submit your offer to the seller.
     
  10. "If the seller has specified shipping costs for the item, shipping is not negotiable. If, however, the seller has requested that the buyer contact them regarding shipping costs, you may offer the seller a price for the item that includes shipping costs." - From eBay - I guess it depends whether there was a stated shipping cost!
     
  11. Buyer message: incl sh is considerable? Thanks

    Honestly, I'm not sure I would have known what you meant by this, especially since you put it as a question.
     
  12. Well, if I get an offer including S&H, when I invoice I just take the SH out.
     
  13. Yeah, you could just pay her minus the S&H and see what she does.
     
  14. Nope, we can put the term into the empty box below box for price :smile: I realized some of my buyers also do the same.
     
  15. :yes: I've sold $2700 & $1050, $1300, $900 LVs, all incl shipping and my buyers wrote it in term box below the price. did seller should read the term before accept offer?
