What is Offer to Buyers?

When buyers show interest in your product but haven’t yet completed the transaction, you can target them with an offer. The “Offer to buyers” feature in Seller Hub enables you to start the negotiation process.

Targeting shoppers already interested in your items can help you increase sales and build awareness with the right customers. You can make an offer to a buyer if they are watching your item or have placed it into their shopping cart but haven’t checked out within five days.

We make sure buyers aren’t overwhelmed with multiple offers from different sellers. That way you can send offers with confidence.

Eligible Listings include:

  • Items a buyer opts to watch
  • Items added to cart that have been there for at least 5 days
