I listed a blue vase, I have two low bids right now, my listing was under auction. Now I have buyers who want me to sell them the item under Buy Now, which I did not place a buy now price when I listed. I told them both because I have a bidder, I cannot go back and set a Buy now price? Am I correct about this? And can I place a reserve on this item after the fact? Please help me.

Hi there!

It seems that it's been a month since you sent the email here on Fixya but I will help you on how you can do this on your future listings.
If your item has already bids you can no longer edit or revise but you can end the listing if there are still more than 12 hours left before it ends. you just need to cancel the bids first and end it. then you can relist the item as a fixed price listing depending on the price that the buyers like to pay for it.
the reserve price only works for auction and you need to put it before you list the item.

Here's how you can end your listing early:

1. Go to: http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/end_early.html
2. Click the "End My Listing Early form" link. You may need to sign in.
3. Enter your Item number, and click the "Continue" button.
4. If there were no bids on your item, go to Step 6.


5. If there are bids on your item, choose either "Cancel bids and end listing early" or "Sell item to high bidder(s) and end listing early."
6. Select the reason that you're ending your listing early.
7. Click the "submit" button to end your listing.

Your listing will end and bidders will receive an email explaining that their bid has been canceled.

Hope this helps you on your future listings. Have a great day!

how do you put buy it now only


When you list item when it gets Choose how you'd like to sell your item Click on fixed price. that is the buy now and best offer link it is right after the Describe the item you're selling where you type in the description. If you would like to reserve a price on item right next to Choose how you'd like to sell your item click on Add or remove options to add reserve price. Good Luck

how to edit my item being sold.I've tried with no luck. From day one i've tried to change my reserve price.I follow the directions,but does not work.I have roadrunner and my screen does not show what i'm told to do.Thank-You


Hi, If you go to active listings on the right side of your ebay item it will have a drop down menu- relist,edit will be there. You should be able to edit item and change reserve price if this does not work because of time on auction left then you must end item which is in same place and instead of relisting there is sell similar item click this, then fix your reserve. Hope i helped. Lesnbek

How do you put a reserve price


A reserve price is the lowest price at which you’re willing to sell your item. If you don’t want to sell your item below a certain price, you can a set a reserve price. The amount of your reserve price isn’t shown to your bidders, but they will see that your auction has a reserve price that has not been met. If a bidder doesn’t meet that price, you aren’t obliged to sell your item. Once the reserve price has been met, the reserve price text is no longer displayed.
Why have a reserve price? Many sellers have found that too high a starting price discourages interest in their item, while an attractively low starting price makes them vulnerable to selling at an unsatisfactorily low price. A reserve price helps with this.
Note: The reserve price option is only visible in the online auction format; it’s not visible for fixed price or classified ad listings. It’s also not available for Multiple Item auctions.
All Reserve Price Auctions are subject to a Reserve Price Auction Fee.
You may lower your reserve price after you receive bids on the item.
Note: To keep eBay a safe place for buyers and sellers, eBay limits how bid history information is shown. User IDs are not shown—buyers are identified only as anonymous names throughout the duration of the auction, even if you lower the price. Only you, the seller, can see the user IDs of bidders on your items.
