It is confusing to see a notice that your sold item is eligible for a second chance offer, if you don't know what that means.

Every auction that ends with a winner is eligible for a SCO.

But the seller doesn't have to offer a SCO.


sometimes a sale falls through, or sometimes the seller has more than one of the items, and so might want to offer a SCO to an underbidder.

Ebay does not send this offer to a bidder.  The seller choose to send or ignore it.  The seller receives a reminder from Ebay that the SCO is available if they want it.

ebay does not send second chance offers.


Did you send one?    How do you know one was sent?


If not, it may be a counterfeit/scam offer.
