Default OBO Offers

I am noticing alot more OBO offers when selling. I thought this type of selling was forbidden. Turning in to an auction house.

OBO is a LOWER price. Auctions are HIGHER.

Not the same.

Default OBO Offers

The marketplace rules post that is stickied at the top says:




9) For Sale threads must have a price listed.



If you are unsure of what you want to ask for an item list a price you think is slightly higher than what you want to get and simply state, 'willing to negotiate'. You can also add 'OBO' (Or Best Offer) after your projected price. While this means you are willing to entertain offers it is NOT a license to auction, neither does it mean that it is acceptable to take a higher offer after you have agreed to a price and a deal. The listing price must be one the seller would accept if a buyer were to make an offer at that price. Editing the original post to raise the price after an offer at that price has been made creating a 'hidden auction' is unacceptable. The seller may accept an offer higher than the price listed, either from motivated buyer or due to unique circumstance such as special shipping requirements providing no offer or deal has been made at the listed price prior to the higher offer.

Also note that if the creator of the WTS/WTT ad indicates that the merchandise is "SPF" (sold pending funds) or something similar in language, then the ad may be closed in order to prevent an auction from occuring due to other people trying to outbid what ever price was agreed upon to cause the creator of the ad to indicate it's status change.
