Counteroffers

If you've made a Best Offer on a Buy It Now listing, the seller may come back to you with a counteroffer if they want to suggest another price.

How counteroffers work

If a seller comes back to you with a counteroffer, you'll find their response in your Messages - opens in new window or tab.

You can choose to accept, reject, or continue negotiating by making another offer to the seller. You can make a total of five offers on most items, or 10 in most vehicles categories.

Tip
Counteroffers from sellers expire after 48 hours.

If you accept a counteroffer, you're committing to buy the item. Simply select Buy it in the message and then complete payment like any other eBay purchase.
