Here's part of the problem: Ebay automatically activates the "Or Best Offer" option even when you don't want it. I list everything I sell as "Buy It Now" and I have to turn OFF "Or Best Offer" once when I list the item and then a second time several days (a week?) later when Ebay silently turns it back on.
I don't think it used to be that way; this is new. But I didn't sell very much prior to these past couple years, so maybe I never noticed it before.
So if you're a seller and you're suddenly getting offers you never anticipated getting, or you're a buyer but for some strange reason the sellers you buy from won't accept your offer, no matter how reasonable, this might be why.
