Haggling doesn’t come naturally to most Americans. We like our fixed prices. But as this recent New York Times article points out, we also like getting a good deal.
Adding “Make Offer” was a game changer for our eBay store. It’s the honey pot to attract buyers while still having strong prices on good quality items. As we dabble with Amazon, we really miss the ability to haggle. Think about it: if you buy something for $1, price it at $60, and get an offer of $40, everyone is getting a good deal.
In this episode, Ryanne and Jay tell the story of how they moved from all auctions to only “Buy It Now”(BIN) with “Make offer”. Sales doubled. We share our best offer tactics and “make offer” strategies. How to handle best offers and when to accept. It makes your eBay store into an old-time bazaar. It’s where the action is.
