Hi there, I've Put a ps3 on auction for £30 with a buy it now of £50. Someone has offered me £40 for it which seems reasonable but I don't think there is an option to take it? What should I do?

I'm pretty sure if you choose the auction option, the auction has to finish. So the buy it now option should now not be applicable if the person offering £40 has bid. Apologies if it's changed but that's how I remember it.

Oh right, but I'm sure you can still get a bit more than just £40...

It's the most expensive one on eBay though, so I don't want to push it too high, might ask for £45

Once you've put up an auction you can't cancel it unless in certain circumstances (i.e. it was a mistake, basically).

What you can do is ask him to put a bid in for £40 and end the auction early, with the item going to the highest bidder.

See this page for some guidance on how to do so: http://pages.ebay.co.uk/help/sell/end_early.html

Or he can buy it now and you can send him the payment details (on ebay) and give him a discount of £10 so effectively he's only paying £40.
