Default Ebay best offer... two tricks to see

I found two tricks to see best offers.

This option no longer works, second post still works as well as the "print" option brought up later in the thread.


1) Put item where www is when looking at the item

Example:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1909-E90-1-American-Caramel-Ty-Cobb-Detroit-Tigers-PSA-2-Good-/251296371894?pt=US_Baseball&hash=item3a826e54b6&nma=true&si=zgWTxi38oBaGVsEbuqYCZD73L%252Fg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557
Becomes:
http://item.ebay.com/itm/1909-E90-1-American-Caramel-Ty-Cobb-Detroit-Tigers-PSA-2-Good-/251296371894?pt=US_Baseball&hash=item3a826e54b6&nma=true&si=zgWTxi38oBaGVsEbuqYCZD73L%252Fg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

2) Is a little more complicated, but if you use this link and change out a section and use it as the search bar you can see a list of best offers in the search area.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/?_nkw=cobb+%...ipg=200&_pgn=1

Where cobb+%28sgc%2Cpsa%29 is the search for Cobb (sgc, psa). This way you need to know some things.
+ equals space
%28 equals (
%2 equals ,
%29 equals )

I have been using these two ways this morning and it has been helpful so I thought I would pass it on.

Happy 4th.

not sure I get what you mean "to see best offers." I tried it and it did not let me see what amount people had offered.

Bingo!

Also, there is another way that has recently been discussed on the board. Simply put, change "com" to "fr", which is eBay France. I tried it as of a couple days ago, and it still was revealing the accepted offer. My guess, however, is that this glitch, or whatever one would like to refer to it as, will be changed (caught) before the one Andy has shared. It used to work with ebay.ca, but that was caught a while ago.

Edited to add a thank you to Andy for sharing some other work-arounds!

Great information! Thanks!

Ebay does this to "protect" sellers. If buyers know too much, they will gain an advantage and prices on the auction site will come down.
