I was just answering a question on the Seibertron forums about my Custom MP Thundercracker auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=130184347032&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT&ih=003 It seems that nobody knows how to use Ebay's "best offer" feature & nobody on the Earth knows what the word "haggle" means anymore. So here's what I wrote over on Seibertron & I think it might be helpful to everybody here. If this auction doesn't sell I was planning to relist it as a regular auction with a reserve. I usually have good luck with the best offer option. I have a price in mind & if somebody gets close to it I'll let them have it. So far I got 1 offer for $100.00 which is way too low considering the time & effort I put into it. But I don't expect to get $299.99 for it either. People just need to start using the best offer option more. NOBODY seems to understand how that works. They send an offer, then I send a counter offer & then they stop. It seems to me that I'm the ONLY person alive these days that knows what the word "haggle" means. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haggling I start the auction high, you send a low offer, I send a counter offer a little lower than my original price, then you send another offer a little higher than your 1st offer. Eventually we meet in the middle & agree on a price. Nobody understands it these days! They send 1 offer & if I don't accept it that's it! It's over! Ebay allows 3 offers, after I send a counter offer it says "you have 2 offers remaining" but people these days just don't get it. I NEVER get a chance to use the other 2 offers. I send the counter offer & then they just drop off the face of the planet. I don't wanna be too offensive but people are stupid these days. There's really no other way to put it. Ebay put the best offer option on the auction but nobody knows how to use it (except me). A guy on Ebay was selling a loose Beast Wars Spittor for BIN $4.99 or best offer. I submitted a $2.00 offer. instead of him sending a counter offer he just ignored it. When I emailed him & asked why he refused to send a counter offer he told me that he's not gonna bother with such a lowball & offensive offer. He just didn't understand the concept of counter offers or haggling. So I think that Spittor is STILL for sale & got mine from a different seller that wasn't such a tool. He lost the sale because he was overly sensitive & my original offer hurt his feelings. How can you put "best offer" on your auction & when somebody makes an offer you don't bother to make a counter offer? I mean really! When somebody makes a low offer you automatically make a counter off until you both finally agree on a price. You don't make 1 offer & it's "take it or leave it!", that's not how it works. Anybody that doesn't understand what the word "Haggle" means should NEVER use the "best offer" option.
