So I found something very rare that I have been wanting on Ebay with a very low buy it now price, but I can't get it because I will not pay over an unsecured connection, so I wait a few hours to get home. The buy it now was magically gone, why? Because some dumb ass who thought he was being clever bid 1 fucking penny OVER the buy it now price so he could disable the button to try and get it even cheaper instead of just using the button like he was clearly willing to do. It's out of the range of sanity now so I won't get it, but at least I have the satisfaction of knowing that low balling asshole wont get it either, because I bid what i was willing to pay, which was more than him. Someone else outbid me and has taken it into crazy town, but at least if that one penny asshole comes back for it it will cost his stupid ass way more than he would have paid had he just used the button instead of playing stupid assed games.

Seriously if your willing to pay the buy it now price just fucking do it, don't over bid it just to be a dick.

Yeah either way I don't get it, but that was just poor form.

Was it knock off airsoft rails? Or a sopmod stock with no QD swivel?

Keep watching.

The buyer might turn out to be a NPB and the seller may relist it.

I've seen it happen before.

Do what? Use the "buy it now" feature?

A lot of times that winds up being their reserve price (minimum they will sell for), and if a bidding war kicks off then anything more is gravy.

Sounds like it was an "immediate payment required" BIN listing.

How could anyone bid higher than the buy it now price in hopes of getting it for less than the buy it now price?

Ebay's proxy bidding. Item listed $5 opening bid, $10 BIN. Buyer bids $15 max, hoping to get it for $5 but willing to go as high as $15. IIRC their new system automatically puts your bid at just above BIN price if you bid a maximum over that amount.

Because once a higher bid is in the buy it now button disappears, the buyer was hoping that no one else would bid and he could get it for less, at least I think that's how it works.

Basically, say its a $50 buy it now, but the opening bid is $10. Low baller buyer puts in bid for $50.01. Ebay then deletes the buy it now button. Seller only owes $10 unless there is another bid. Put simply the buyer is willing to pay the buy it now if he has to, but really doesn't want to because he thinks the bidding might not go that high, but he also wants to make sure someone else does not come along first and just use the buy it now button honestly and "take" it from him so he submits a bid in bad faith deliberately intended to disable the buy it now button just so he can try to win the item with a low ball bid.

I know that earlier in the day the buy it now button was there, and later it was gone, yet there was only one bidder and the minimum bid was only $1 higher than where it was earlier in the day. The bid is now substantially higher than the buy it now was. Fuck him.

Bid him up to what ever you're willing to pay. Either you get it at a price you think is fair or you don't.

I thought ebay removes the Buy it now button when the first bid equal to or over the starting price is made.

I don't understand why you are mad at him though...?

If he would have used the Buy It Now button, you still wouldn't have gotten it. And clearly from the increased bidding it would have went over the reserve anyways, soooo.............?

Yeah, that's how it works. At least when I put a Case 2014 Christmas Trapper up for sale in December. BIN goes away with the first bid, whether it's above the BIN price, or below it.

Used it all the time 15 years ago.

The fees are outrageous if your selling something.
Most merchandise is priced near full retail due to the retarded fees.
