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

When you list an item, you can set a Buy It Now price (also called fixed price) as the only option, or you can create an auction-style listing with a Buy It Now option.

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.


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


There's no fee for using Buy It Now, except in certain categories—Real Estate, Motors, and Business & Industrial—and if you own an eBay Store.
