    I'm so mad!! What is the purpose of putting up a "make best offer" option on your ebay items if you're gonna turn them down?! I made an offer for only 7 or 8 bucks...it would've basically his BIN price but no shipping charges and he turns it down.....damn him! LOL

    Anyhoo there's an Action Master Prime on ebay if you want it...screw him! LOL

    Obviously your offer wasn't the best.

    I made an offer for a poster once (the big Soundwave + tapes). The BIN was like $25 and I offered $17 or something but he turned it down. Then I won one for like $13 shipped.

    I've been really lucky with those. Admittedly these were weird ass Jumpstarter recolours, but still, I got them CHEAP.

    Oh, wait, one was for Dark Fangwolf, got that real cheap too.

    i offered 7.50 on an 8.95 item

    the seller didnt even respond he let the offer expire.

    the thing is the seller did it before to someone else.

    whats the use of put your item up as a best offer when you dont even bother with it?

    now if he decliened the best offer i would have paid the full price for the item as i wanted it but frankly if he couldnt be bothered to accept or decline i cant be bothered. i can get it for the same price elsewhere.

    also the item has been listed since febuary he hasnt been able to sell it so he's been relisting it each time it ends.

    now i hope it never sells.

    Maybe if you offered reasonable amounts, people wouldn't turn them down.

    I've had good luck with "Best Offers". I try to be reasonable with my offer and not low-ball them too much.

    seller- "Asking 100$ or best offer"

    buyer- "All i have is 99$"

    seller- " Go away, shoo!"


    I guess they figure if you can't handle the cost, then they can't trust you to handle the 200$ shipping fee :lol
