Yes as soon as a bid is made the buy it now option goes.

Ewe Thu 18-Sep-08 21:53:39

Actually, it does! Just checked.

DisenchantedPlusBump Thu 18-Sep-08 21:54:41

ah right thanks!

trying to weigh up whether i should buy it now .. or try bidding (but then run the risk of it going higher than the buy it now was at)

if there is a reserve it does not go til reserve is met

DisenchantedPlusBump Thu 18-Sep-08 21:56:09

no reserve just a starting bid

i DECIDED TO BID, SO NOW AM THE ONLY BIDDER WITH 24 HOURS TO GO AND ITEM IS (oops caps) £70 under the BIN, its a popular item though so I don't expect to be the only bidder.

I have offered her a lower BIN price so will see what she says
