It is pointless for a seller to offer a 'Best Offer' option and then ignore any offers put forward from buyers, presumably sellers are holding out for the price they want.....if so why bother to include the option? I have made several reasonable offers recently on various items, all of which have been ignored. If the offer is not acceptable, just respond! So rude.

sellers who use the ap have no choice in the matter,
ebay have made best offer compulsory,
most sellers don't want to offer it, but can't remove it when creating the listing!
some don't even realise it is there so think 'offers' they receive are some how 'dodgy' so they just ignore them.

Ebay change the rules without any consultation, and the alternative "Advanced Listing" private sellers are told is not suitable and is for Business Sellers. As with many things on Ebay, sellers have to learn to ignore useless "advice".
If I had a reasonable offer I would accept rather than have a No Sale as so many are now.

Because, if they use Ebay's quick listing tool, Best Offer is automatically selected as an option and there ius no facility to switch it off. They have to use the advanced lsting tool to list without Best Offer - many sellers don't realise that, many sellers don't even realise the Best Offer option has been selected.
