Thanks, that's what I thought. She want to give me a lower price off eBay but I'd rather play by the rules.

no - not allowed. They can bid their max and you can end to them at that price, or you can add a buy it now to the listing.

Quick update. Buyer wants me to send her an invoice on paypal and presumably stop auction on eBay. I know this is a dappy question but this isn't allowed is it? I don't feel comfortable with it if it is as I'm trying to build up good feedback and continue ebaying to fund current maternity leave.

Thanks, I didn't think of that.
I don't want to sell outside of eBay seems even more hassle and potential for nightmare buyers

Yes you can end the auction whenever you like as long as not within the last 24 hrs. You don't have to give a reason.
Negotiate your own price!!!!

You could add a BIN price to the listing as you are not supposed to sell outside of ebay. I have no idea if people do though!

I'm selling a new pram hood and the listing ends on Sunday.
Someone has messaged me to ask "what sort of price are you looking for?"
Can I end the auction early and sell to this person? And what sort of price d I ask for. I was thinking of saying £30 (last few have sold for around £25-30 but are used)
