Sellers set their own prices and decide if they are willing to negotiate or not. Many factors go into this decision, like how much the seller initially paid for the item, its scarcity, how long it's been on the market, and interest from other buyers. Every situation is different, and we encourage you to negotiate to get the best price you can.
How to Negotiate with Sellers
Not every seller will be willing to negotiate on price, but if they are the "Make an Offer" button will be on the item page:
Once you have selected the "Make an Offer" button, a popup will appear on your screen:
Input the price or percentage off you are willing to purchase the item at. It will then take you to a secure checkout page asking for payment and shipping details. The offer will not be submitted until checkout is complete.
Once checkout is complete, the seller will be notified of your offer.
- If the seller accepts your offer, and shipping has been quoted or is provided for free, your order will be confirmed and the item will be shipped.
- If the seller accepts your offer and shipping has not yet been quoted, the seller will send you a quote for approval. If you accept the quote, your order will be confirmed and the item will be shipped. If you reject the quote, your order will be canceled and you will not be charged.
- In some cases, the seller may send a counteroffer. You can accept it to confirm your order, or you can counter with a new price. Your order will only be processed once you and the seller have agreed upon both the item price and the shipping quote.
- If the seller rejects your offer, your offer will be canceled and you will not be charged.
Once an offer has been accepted and the shipping quote approved, we'll work with the seller to handle the details of getting your item delivered. You can also choose to arrange your own shipping or pick up the item. In checkout, go to 'Delivery Method' and click 'Edit', to indicate your choice.
