Good point, too

It looks almost like the person with no feedback put a massive proxy bid on it

None the less its annoying!

A typical price for one of those critters new would be about $49, here's one at drfostersmith

Aside from people who drive up auction prices, newbies to eBay bid early and often over bid.

Email the seller and ask what he would sell it for under the "buy it now" stuff. If the price is to your liking then handle it that way. Ebay gets their money and you don't have to deal with idiot "0"'s on there.
You can't do a buy it now if someone has already placed a bid on the item unless there is a reserve that hasn't been matched yet.

I usually snipe whatever I buy; "It's the only way to ebay".

The thing about ebay that kills me is the $1 purchase with the $15 shipping and handling on a small paperback book.

I think someone missed the point.


Did the auction have a buy it now option?

I doubt it, You can not just email the seller and ask them to stop the auction now and sell it to you.


Buy it now is an option they enable, and if you want to buy it now.. .You simply click the buy it now button, pay the predetermined amount for buy it now, boom.



Its not something you email the seller, If the seller has it its on the auction page.



emailing a seller and asking to stop the auction so you can buy it now, is not something ebay condones. And is outside the realm of protection ebay offers.
