Bargain hunting eBay buyers are perplexed as design changes bury "Accepts Offer" search filter option - are sellers losing opportunities to make a deal?

I don’t see the “Best Offer” on searching
Hello, When searching on the web, the Best Offer option on the buying format is missing, but when using the android app, the same option appears. Anyone knows why is this? Regards,

When searching on the web, the Best Offer option on the buying format is missing, but when using the android app, the same option appears.

Anyone knows why is this?

Previously, the Accepts Offer filter was shown at the top of search and in the options on the left side of the page as a Buying Formet option - but it no longer appears in either place.

Buyers can still find the option by clicking on More Filters, then Show Only in the pop up, but that requires additional clicks and many buyers may not be aware of this workaround.

Buyers can of course still see the Best Offer option once they are on the listing or under the price as they scroll through search results, but that is much less convenient than being able to filter search to specifically show only listings with Best Offer enabled.

That raises the question - why would eBay want to make it more difficult for buyers to drill down to see only the listings they are interested in seeing?


Do you prefer to have the Accepts Offer filter shown on the main eBay search page with other buying formats? Let us know in the comments below!
