Ebay seller can initiate offer to BIN item watchers
Just learned that seller can initiate an offer to anyone "watching" a buy it now item. Offer has to be for at least a 5% discount and can be made in a dollar or percentage amounts. Works great for inexpensive items.
Ebay make offer page. Eligible items will show up only if you have a "watcher."
