Actually, unless you had Or Best Offer on your listing, they aren't allowed to contact you and make the offer.


You can't even be sure they would follow through if the opportunity were presented.


On fixed price listings, all you could do would be end and relist at the agreed price.

This is not a good idea. No one who emails you with an offer (a violation of eBay policy unless you had Best Offer on the listing) has your best interest in mind....

Never rely on eBay nor emails for accurate payment information.

There's no such thing as a Fixed Price auction. But just go ahead and revise the listing to the price.

Why would you want to do this, though?
