How to use 'buy it now

If you're a buyer: Buy It Now gives you the chance to buy an item immediately.
You can buy an item when you want it, at a set price, and without waiting for an auction-style listing to end.
Remember that shipping and handling charges aren't included in the Buy It Now price.
Check the item description or contact the seller to find out full price details. Learn more about buying with the Buy It Now option.

If you're a seller: You can offer a Buy It Now price as the only option. You can also create an auction-style listing with a Buy It Now option.
In auction-style listings, the Buy It Now price needs to be at least 30% higher than the starting price.
Once someone bids, the Buy It Now option goes away and the item will be sold to the winning bidder. Learn more about selling using a fixed price.
