I have a sofa for sale on ebay and have agreed with a buyer (via ebay email) a price of £30. The starting bid is £15 with no bids so far and the auction ends saturday afternoon. I have agreed that the buyer can come down on friday to see the sofas with no obligation to buy.
I need to know if its within the rules to provide him with my mobile number and address so I can arrange the viewing. If he decided to buy on friday, would I need to cancel the listing automatically? But what if someone in the meantime makes a bid higher than £30 - am I obliged to sell it to the highest bidder? Because this is a cash on collection sale, there is a chance another buyer may not commit to purchase, so I would rather sell to the initial buyer because he would have viewed the sofas.
If the cash sale is complete for £30, how do I finalise it on ebay so I can pay the final selling fee?
I've only been a ebay member for a week so any advice appreciated.
Once someone has made a bid then you are meant to sell it to the highest bidder but as I said.You can change it to a buy it now price and that means that the person can buy it right away before having to wait untill the auction ends.
I've read you can't use the buy it now facility until you have about 5 feedbacks. I'm a new member. I've sent a mail to ebay support but was hoping an experienced user could answer specifically about be able providing address info in the email so I can arrange the viewing.
