Reading Time: 2 minutes
Whether you’re planning to sell an item on eBay and don’t know at what price you should list it at, or you’ve found an item you want to buy but aren’t sure if the asking price is fair — looking up what similar items have sold for recently on eBay using their advanced search filters can give you the information you need to make an educated decision.
That said, when you’re exploring the sold listings for the item you’re researching, often times you’ll find a listing that has the selling price crossed out with the words “Best Offer Accepted” written underneath. How are you supposed to figure out how much the offer was for that the seller accepted?
Thankfully, finding the “hidden” best-offer selling price on any eBay item is really easy to do — no third party apps or websites required. Just follow these simple steps, and with just a couple of clicks, you’ll know exactly how much that item really sold for!
To discover the hidden offer price that was accepted on an eBay listing, follow these simple steps:
- Perform a search on eBay for the item you’re interested in.
- Tick the “Sold Listings” checkbox to show only completed listings.
- Explore the search results.
- When you find an item that sold with a best offer, click it.
- Click either the “see original listing” link or the thumbnail image.
- Once the original listing loads, right click on the webpage and select “View Page Source”.
- When viewing the HTML source code, press and hold CMD (Mac) or CTRL (PC) + F to bring up the “Find On Page” search box.
- Type taxex in the search box and the page will instantly jump to the taxExclusivePrice field in the code.
- The amount you see immediately to the right of taxExclusivePrice is the actual selling price of that item.
And that’s it. You did it! Rinse and repeat as often as you like, on any eBay listing that sold via a best offer. Did you find this tip useful? Let me know in the comments section below!
