On Buy now type listings there is an option that allows a seller to select Make an offer. This is limited to three offers and three seller counter offers.

Important note for when listing 'Buy Now' listings with immediate payment required
When choosing the listing type 'Buy now with immediate payment required' If you do not add a shipping price for a specific country then bidders from that country will not be able to bid.
So for example if you are in the UK and select a Buy Now with immediate payment required as your choice of listing to sell with and you do not add a shipping price for the USA then bidders from USA cannot bid but this only applies to Buy Now type listings it does not apply to buy now without immediate payment required or auction style listings.

Potential bidders or buyers may ask questions To which you may reply. the questions will appear at the top of the page in the section titled 'Messages' there will be a red number appear that indicates there is an unanswered questtion
Block unwanted bidders
As a seller you have the option of adding unwanted bidders I.D. to a block bidder list.
Sellers or buyers may not cancel or remove existing bids placed on a live listing but if you see bidding on an item you have listed from a bidder that you are not happy to accept bids from you can place that bidder in the block bidder list and then that bidder cannot continue bidding on that listing and that bidders max bid will no longer work and this will also prevent that bidder from bidding on or using 'Buy Now' on any future item you may list.
