Best Offer: What was the Final Selling Price?
Have you ever tried to locate a comp (comparable price) on Ebay only to find that the item sold by best offer? What does this mean for you? It means that the actual selling price is not listed. Instead what you will find is a price with a line through it; like the sweater vest listed below in the middle.
Fortunately, there is a work-around. It involves the website Watchcount.com. Keep reading.
- Go to ebay and search for the item that you want to do the comp on. Once you find the listing that you want, look on the left side of the screen, near the bottom and find the “show only” section. Underneath that section, check the “sold listings” box and wait for the page to refresh.
- Find the item that you want and click on the hyperlink, which is the item title.
- Scroll down to the middle of the page until you see in small print on the right side, “eBay item number”. Copy that number.
- Go to your browser window, and type in “Watchcount.com“.
- Paste the eBay number into the yellow “keywords” box, and hit the enter/return key. Look for the yellow highlighted section that reads, “sold for”. There you will find the actual final selling price. It’s that easy!
