An item I had on Ebay failed to sell.Within about an hour of sale ending someone contacted me to ask if I would sell it to them, presumably not through Ebay. I ignored this as I was just about to relist. However, today this potential buyer has again contacted me to ask if I would accept £8 inc P&P which is less than my starting price. It's not on as BIN btw. Don't really want to do this but was just wondering if what they want me to do is within Ebay rules.
you could tell them that you are prepared to accept £x and will list as a BIN if they are interested. I reckon they are just trying it on though, hoping that as your item didn't sell you will be prepared to sell it cheap.
Thanks for the replies. Agree with you Bumpybecky, won't sell privately. God knows it can be stressful enough doing it via ebay. May put it on BIN but am tempted to let auction run its course. Thanks again
