I created an auction item on eBay yesterday, and today I've had a user ask if they can "Buy It Now" as they require the item ASAP.

I went to edit/revise the item, and the Buy It Now field was disabled from editing.

Is there a way of editing the Buy It Now field on an existing item?

You can't attach a "buy it now" after the auction is live, its currently in play.

Changing your listing format

You can't switch between a fixed price listing and an online auction with a Buy It Now price. However, in some situations, you can add, edit, or remove a Buy It Now price.

  • For auction-style listings: If more than 12 hours remain before the listing ends, you might be able to add, edit, or remove a Buy It Now price as long as the listing has not received any bids.

  • For fixed price listings: You can edit the Buy It Now price.

Thanks @bZezzz! It states that items cant have a Buy It Now price added to an item which already has bids. Mine has 2 bids. What can I do? –  Curt Jan 10 '12 at 21:24
