    I'm curious to know, as far as this website is concerned, what is meant by "or best offer" in the exchange threads? Does it mean the seller will entertain offers lower than the asking price? Or does it mean the seller will accept a bidding war of escalating prices?

    I've seen both meanings in different communities, so I'm curious how it's used here.

    Thanks for your help!

    Asking 100 obo means I want 100$ but I will listen to offers and might accept less than my asking price.

    seller posts 100 then you offer 80 then seller goes up to 90 then you both agreed on that price! so "best offer" is 90 for you and the seller....

    Which communities think OBO is an invitation for a bidding war? We need to go straighten them out...

    Thanks... I did come across that thread. Unfortunately, the question wasn't trying to figure out the initials... it was trying to understand what is meant by "or best offer" in this particular community.

    Good to know you were being silly... I enjoy being silly from time to time!

    Thanks for the feedback, everyone. That's certainly what I would expect OBO to mean, but you never know. I appreciate the help! :)
