If the bid is not at least half of the BIN price, the BIN won't dissappear depending on the category.If there is no reserve on the auction, the BIN should disappear once a bid is placed so you could place a bid and take it from there...
Ooooh see that is REALLY good to know, I wasn't even aware of that, thank you!!If the bid is not at least half of the BIN price, the BIN won't dissappear depending on the category.
The following categories will have Longer Lasting BIN w.e.f 10/17/2007 with a price threshold of 50%.
1. Parts & Accessories (eBay Motors)
3. Clothing, Shoes & Accessories
4. Cell Phones & PDAs
Price Threshold: 50%
i.e. The BIN option will be available on an item till the current bid reaches or exceeds 50% of the BIN price.
Note: For reserve price auctions, the Buy it Now option will continue to be available till the reserve price is met. The price threshold is only applicable once the reserve has been met or exceeded.
Ooooh see that is REALLY good to know, I wasn't even aware of that, thank you!!
OP, you may want to play the waiting game, I have had some people do that to me, and if your offer isn't around 85%-90% of my BIN price I'll just automatically decline I'd rather have an auction ride out than get cut short, especially if I don't know its particular market, because curiosity strikes to let it run its course and let the bidders decide its worth
I have found as a seller that every offer is appreciated. If it is not what you must get to end your listing, so be it. But it is never rude for someone to show interest in a listing; far from it! I appreciate all emails, offers, etc. because that lets me know that at least my item is getting attention. On the other hand, as a buyer, I am sometimes hesitant to offend someone with a lowball offer, which is crazy when you think about it. I have seen Chanel bags sold for many hundreds less than the BIN price. So just email her and ask if she would consider offers other than the BIN she has set on the listing. All she can say is "yes" or "no". I can't see how she could possibly consider that rude. Good luck!!!a purse i want just got listed about 15 hours ago. it is for 4 days and the starting bid is .99. Nobody has bid yet and there is a bin price for $325. would it be rude to ask the seller if they will take less? it is just bin, not obo. thanks
