eBay not sending offers

Ok here is a new issue I haven’t seen before. I have an item up for sale at $130. I received 6 offers that expired on 9/3 for $115. Would have gladly taken it. Problem is the app never displayed I had offers and never got an email. Offers are on with no minimum. Anyone ever seen this before?

No, I’ve been getting my offers and counter offers just fine.

Yes happened to me several times. Sent feedback to Ebay and even put a notes in some of my listings that i respond to all offers and DM If you want to discuss an offer.

Same situation, no minimum offer listings and i would’ve taken the offer.

I checked all my listings and several had offers I would have taken that I never saw.

Is it possible that you have restrictions on who can buy from you? I have minimum 5 positive feedback and no selling if someone has already bought a few of the same book.

However, I’ve never actually checked to see if i was receiving offers from those ne’er do wells…

No, they all had feedback, I allow zero feedback buyers as they need a place to start. One more thing, the didn’t even have messages on the eBay message center. So it is very odd. I need to see if they were all from the same buyers or something else funny going on.


I don’t do best offers….I find I get approximately an 80% dead beat buyer rate….

Not that this helps you and your situation in any way…

I think it depends in part on the seller. I know for some sellers, their asking price is their best price. For me, I find best offer helpful for books I have sitting around for awhile and/or the person makes me an offer 5-10 dollars lower than my asking price. In a case like this someone might not have been willing to buy it or bid at my asking price but at a couple dollars lower which is okay with me. This way I don’t miss out on a sale and someone gets a decent deal. Everyone walks away happy.
