    Hi all,
    I could use a bit of help here, I bid on an eBay item for IH Juliets and I didn't expect to win as I posted my max bid and was out bid right away. Any way it ended about 20 mins and I got a message from the seller saying I have an opportunity to get one since he has another for sale and is offering it to me at the price I bid.

    This pics in the original listing look good and the seller was good at responding and pretty helpful. I replied back asking if this was for real and if he had pictures of the second offering was that a bad idea? and should i consider this?
    I do want the glasses

    This is the original listing 330759662687

    Any thoughts would be great

    I've done that numerous times when I have multiples of something I'm selling, it's not uncommon. I always ask if I can send a PayPal invoice rather than going through eBay, then I don't have to worry about freakin eBay fees.

    isn't paying through eBay with Paypal the same thing? I was planning on accepting it but I would use the BIN...is that what you mean?

    No, as a seller you can offer a second chance and it gives the buyer a BIN price and the seller still has to pay the eBay fees as if it were a regular auction sale. I send an offer with a note asking if I can send them an invoice straight from PayPal and that saves quite a bit of money on eBay fees.

    ^ That's what I'd do too. He'll make more and you'll pay less. You both win.

    Cool...thanks guys, I asked him for additional pics I hope he's not offended, I supposed I don't really need them. I'll have a look anyway.

    I'm excited but nervous as well...cheers!

    The guy has already sold 3 pair of IH. He must have a lot. First two sold for $399.

    I bet he'd sell one outside of ebay for $400... No, I cant. Spent $750 on a pair yesterday. :mad:

    I think he'll be posting another one watch his store. There was a question about authenticity on this posting at the bottom, his reply was that he worked for an Authorized Dealer.

    He's a pretty good guy to deal with so far good communication and all. It seems over priced probably but it retailed in Canada for 475 +tax (13%) so I saved a bit getting it from him and since I can't find it any where I went for it.
