Here's what we found for "Using Buy It Now"

When you list an item, you can set a Buy It Now price as the only purchase option. This allows the buyer to purchase your item right away. Alternatively, you can create an auction-style listing and add a Buy It Now price. This gives buyers the choice of bidding or buying outright.

To sell an item at a fixed price, your feedback score must be at least 0, and the item you're listing must be priced at $0.99 or higher.

When listing in most categories, there's no fee for adding a Buy It Now option. However, if you have an eBay Store, or if you list in certain categories such as Real Estate, Motors, or Business & Industrial, a fee may apply.

Buy It Now (fixed price)

  • Buyers can purchase the item immediately at the price you set
  • There's no bidding
  • The item appears when buyers browse and search for items, or when they narrow results to Buy It Now listings
  • You can sell more than one item per listing
  • You can choose to accept Best Offers, allowing you to negotiate the price with buyers

Auction-style listing with Buy It Now

  • Buyers can purchase your item immediately or place a bid
  • In most categories, the Buy It Now price must be at least 30% higher than the starting auction price. For eBay Motors, this applies to Parts & Accessories, but not to vehicle listings
  • The Buy It Now price is available until someone bids on the item, or until the reserve price is met
