Quick question about counter offering as a seller

  1. I am selling an item on eBay with a BIN or best offer. I received a couple offers on eBay that were way too low. I sent the potential buyers a counter offer but have yet to hear back. I was just wondering if I would get a notice if those buyers rejected my counter offer? I would like to at least know those potential buyers decline instead of wonder forever. This is my first time selling an item on eBay with the best offer option. Usually I just do the standard auction with the BIN option.

    Thanks so much!
  2. I have stopped doing the regular auction format and have switched to the Best Offer format.

    In my experience, I had someone offer me a lower bid than I wanted...and when I counter offered and they accepted my bag just disappeared from the selling window on My Ebay.

    I didn't even know that it had sold until My Ebay told me that I was awaiting a payment.

    I don't know if you get a "Offer declined" message, but I know that I later got a "Item Sold" email from Ebay.
  3. If they decline you will be notified.
  4. Thanks Hats and bnjj!
  5. yes if they decline you will get a notice. many people just ignore it if they don't want the price you offered. you will them get an offer expired notice at some point.
  6. ^I got one of those today. Boo. :push:
  7. can you counteroffer to more than one person at a time?
  8. Yup, I had two counter offers going. I guess whichever buyer accepts first wins.
