What is the point?!

Maybe he's not the sort of seller you want to deal with, anyway.

I always wonder that , we wanted an item that was £16.50 or best offer , we offered £15.00 ( as a nice round number) and they came back to us and said they'd take £16.25 , pathetic! Needless to say we bought elsewhere .

best offer should mean at least 10% less I think; but have had really cheeky offers like £5 when BIN is £30

So now I set it up generally to reject offers less than 75/80% of asking price and to auto accept if at least 90% and then I consider those between the two
