I have something listed on eBay with a buy it now or best offer option. I always get the question “what’s the lowest price you will take?”. What is the best way to answer this?

    best answer is " I cant buy it and sell it so make me a offer"
    oh another good response is complete silence.

    I always says I don't have a low and make and offer and I will consider, they normally run away but likely not someone I want to deal with anyways

    I don't mind questions. Tell them to make what they think is a fair offer and see what happens. If you have settings on your offer that don't allow offers under a certain $ amount, then the lowballers will find out that way.

    yup. i haven't sold on ebay in a while but if i have a best offer - i'll do this. then the lowballers will filter themselves out. if they message i'll ask them what's the most they'll pay.

    I used to have a very big sports card/memorabilia business on Ebay. Instead of becoming upset and stating your "list" process as your minimum, or the , just make an offer statement, if you want to sell the item as quick as possible, quote them 10-15% over what you would actually take to give yourself room. Most people who ask want the item and what want a little discount off the buy it now price and it only takes you 10 seconds to respond. Just my 2 cent however

    Why not just give them an honest answer? Anytime you list something as "OBO" you have to expect an offer below your baseline price.

    True, but there’s a difference between a little bit below your baseline and coming in at an insulting lowball offer. I’m all for getting a deal and even working with people when I’m selling something, but I despise the “what’s the lowest you’ll take” questions. We both have a price in mind, but I’m of the old school thinking that he who speaks first loses.

    He’s not getting offers. He’s getting a question.

    Let me know when you sell your house. We’ll start with “what’s the least you’re willing to take”. ;)

    Always respond with "What's the most you are willing to pay?"
