Selling on eBay: How to See Final Price on Best Offer Items

Hope everyone had a fun-filled and safe 4th of July holiday!  We spent the day with family and friends at Veterans Park, a beautiful & relaxing park right on the ocean and adjacent to the pier in Redondo Beach.  Then we came home just in time for the fireworks show at our city park.  

Anyway, I was so excited about my new “discovery” that I just had to do a quick post to share it with you!

It’s been some time now since eBay disabled our ability to see the final price on “best offer” sales.  And for awhile several months ago, I was still able to see the final price if I searched on eBay.ca, which is the Canada site.  However, it’s also been disabled on all eBay sites.

I was doing some research today on a pair of Sergio Valente jeans I want to list, and I found the exact same pair in the “sold” listings.  But, darn it, it was a “best offer” sale.  I really wanted to know how much the jeans sold for, so I did a Google search on how to find out.  After surfing around, I found this great site.

Here is the original listing on the Sergio Valente jeans:

You can see that the jeans were originally listed for $39.99, and the buyer accepted a best offer.  But for how much?  The answer is …

… $15.00 plus shipping!  Ok, not exactly the price I was hoping for, but just knowing how much is priceless!

I’m sure you are now sitting on the edge of your seat, anxiously waiting to know what this great site is.  Well, I’m going to tell you …

You can look up the Best Offer Sold-For Price on completed eBay BIN items on WatchCount.com. Just copy-paste the eBay listing # into the homepage search box, and you can view the item info – including the actual Best Offer selling price.

UPDATE 2018: WatchCount.com has disabled the Best Offer tool and it is no longer available.  However, I have found another site that gives you the same info from FlipperTools.com

So that’s my tip for today!  Hope you all are having a great weekend … and be sure to come back for another Cash for Trash post.

Happy thrifting and saling!
