You know what, I had a different theory about the Best Offer on the auction. Maybe you're supposed to propose a higher price than the minimum bid in order to get the seller to end the auction before a bid is placed. Could be a way for eBay to force transactions to stay on eBay rather than off-eBay.

So you list a $1200 card for $99 and Best Offer. Someone offers $900 before a bid comes in. Now if you end the listing, eBay can charge the seller $90 since there was a valid offer on the card.

John,

Interesting. A little devious, but interesting.

I am having the same problem.

This is why I would never auction anything through ebay again.

I noticed that a short while ago, with all of them, and was going to ask/tell, Leon about it.

I believe that is not the only problem with eBay. Every morning, I receive an email form eBay showing me available items that fall into my search criteria. My search is set up to show pre 1942 Baseball.

Here is what showed up today:

It's doing that again to me as well.

I am also waiting for an invoice which should have been sent first thing this morning. I can only assume the seller is having issues as well?

This is just a theory, but if ebay's servers are here in California, they may be experiencing issues from the wildfires. My online banking service is down because the place where it is run from is in Santa Rosa and the communication network is gone from the fires.
