I am trying to sell aQuinny Buzz on Ebay, with carry cot and car seat and have been asked this question; "could you tell me how much do you realy wont for that pushchair? if you can send a phone number please"

Never sold anything before, I have put a starting bid of £100 on, 5 days left.

Am I being a bit dim, not sure what she is asking me really as I want £100 or any more I can make?

Please help me I am such a virgin to ebay!

she's asking if you would consider a buy it now and for how much imo.

Ahh, can you do that just take it off mid auction if you agree price with someone?

Not sure as this person haas 0% feedback and lives about 3hour drive from me, and I have put it as collection only. Guess i'm just being cautious

ok, unless you want to put a buy it now on just ignore the message. dont send a phone number.

Buy it Now - if you would be happy with, say, £150 for the quinny, you can add that 'Buy it Now' price to your auction (theres a 'fixed' price tab when you create or update an auction), and someone will be able to purchase it immediately for that price. You can put it alongside the auction start price, but I think it disappears either after the first bid or after a certain amount of time.

I agree with lyn. If you have a buy it now you'd be happy to accept, just add the option.

I wouldn't post a phone number until after a winning bid tbh

And yes you can take things off mid auction, if no-one has made a bid (and even if they have in exceptional circumstances) but going by what you've said about this person I wouldnt do it.

Thanks for that - think I'll just ignore the email for now then.
