Default Has Anyone Found a New Way to See 'Best Offer' Sold Prices?

There used to be two different go-to ways to see the actual amount a 'Best Offer' auction sold for on ebay:

1. In The Url Replace "Www" With "Item" And Then Replace "Com" With "Ca"

2. Http://Cgi.Ebay.Com/Ws/Ebayisapi.Dll?Viewitemversion&Item=PUT-ITEM#-HERE

But neither of these efforts seems to work anymore (or is it just me?). Has anyone run across a new method of accomplishing this feat?

Most of those sites are no longer going to work since eBay is now restricting their sales data from sites that aren't official members.

Tim, after you open up the source code, hit ctrl+f to launch a search box, enter "taxExclusivePrice" in the search and hit enter, the BIN price will be right after the text is found.

The question for me is, why does eBay make this info so hard to find? I guess maybe I would understand if they hid the final sale price of every item, ever.....but to just hide the BO price seems odd to me.

The question for me is - why is this anyone else's business? If I buy a card through Best Offer or I sell a card through Best Offer, it isn't anyone else's business to know the actual price. It is between me and the buyer or between me and the seller. No one else needs to know.

So people don't really think 1990 Topps print defects sold for $4,700 each, duh!

Many people don't realize that many non-BO prices are also being reported wrong. If the seller doesn't take offers, but someone sends them a message through PMs on eBay, the seller can make a lower offer through that. I am pretty sure that does not get reported with a slashed-through sale price to let anyone know it didn't actually sell for the initial BIN price.

I don’t understand this way of thinking at all, but to each their own. I could see if maybe the buyer’s identity wasn’t hidden or something, but it’s just a data point. By this logic it must infuriate you that every single AH publishes sold prices. When you buy something, I couldn’t care less about your identity. Like I said, I would understand if every AH, including ebay, hid every sale price ever, but for one site to just hide BO prices seems bizarrely inconsistent.

Don't put words in my mouth. I could care less about auction houses. I only care about transactions that I am involved with.

You might think that a 1990 Topps print defect sold for $4700, but as long as I am not involved in the transaction, I don't really care.

I agree. I get many of these offers, and I accept many of these offers. Also, the limited data that is gleaned from these eBay Best Offers doesn't include the millions of transactions that are made at card shows, or that are made on Net54 or Blowout, or at the National for that matter. So, you may think there is a set market price according to VCP or Beckett, but in reality, no one ever knows the true market price.

Your option is to stop selling on eBay then...

Good news is that I've been checking actual sales prices for a while and they are nearly always accurately reflected on PSA's web site in its prices realized section. Bad news is it is PSA doing a good job.

I agree entirely with your general view about this. It's not even like all transactions at card shows are some completely secret deal all the time anyway. Back in the old days when shows were the main focus of the marketplace, how often were there a few other collectors standing right there when you held a card and asked "would you take $60 for this", and he agreed?

Like you said, to each their own. But when it comes to matters of privacy, there are things I value at lot more (than if someone knows what was paid for a baseball card).

eBay needs to be very transparent when it comes to auction results. There are a lot of people in the business including myself who depend on those results as a price guide and they are far too unreliable. They should be showing the actual sold results for a buy it now. In addition, if an item is returned or an order canceled that sale should be removed from the sold listings. It’s way too easy for market manipulation to occur the way things are - this is what happens when you lack transparency. These guys who are out there know it and are using these things to their advantage to try and screw over other buyers. eBay is complicit in this in that it is to their benefit to show higher sold results An item listed at $395 obo looks more impressive than putting up a lower actual sold price.

Sorry, I've already got that one registered. Just cant figure out how to set it up. ;-)

And I agree, what is the logic in eBay showing some sale prices and not others?? Being transparent with buy/sell prices only makes the hobby (market) more efficient. And isn't that what we all want - buyers and sellers interacting in an efficient marketplace? Unless you don't. So if you don't want that information divulged, don't use a public forum to peddle/procure your goods.

I'm surprised how many people didn't know about the search function in their web browser.

That 'view source' approach just seems to be a PC thing. For Macs and OSX using Safari, you gotta go to preferences and click the 'Show Develop menu in menu bar' button. Then when you are on the 'see original listing' page, you go to the Develop menu and click "Show Page Source." This will give you all the code at bottom, which you may or may not be able to search for 'taxExclusivePrice.'

What I did is select all of that code and then paste it in a different (text) program, where I did the 'taxExclusivePrice' search and BINGO!! it was a winner.
