A buyer is out of offers and sent me (through eBay) a message asking me to let him know what my "very best price" would be. I'm assuming that he's out of offers because he's sent out a bunch of (crazy) low offers that weren't accepted (I'm basing that on having received an offer of about 10% of my ask price, which was automatically rejected a week ago). His message also included his phone number. On my mind is that he's possibly hoping to offer an off eBay deal (which I would NOT do), but it could simply be that he wants to know if he can get to my minimum that I'd accept.
The question comes in though on any mechanics of this. If he is out of offers (and I can't find any explanation as to under what situation buyers do get more -- is that time based or something else?) what is the RIGHT way to do this? Should I contact him to let him know what my "best price" would be, and if he agreed to it -- then update my listing to reflect that price as the new BIN? (
I **think** that's the right way to do this, but am hoping to hear from you about what not to do or what else to do. I do not want to get into a situation where it even appears like I am trying to complete this off of eBay.
Thanks for any advice or additional suggestions!
