The Make an Offer option allows you to offer a lower price for an item and submit it for the Seller’s consideration - so if you’re up for a little haggling, this could be great for you.
Sellers can choose whether or not to enable this option on their items, so if you can’t see Make an Offer on an item’s listing it means the Seller has chosen not to activate it.
When you Make an Offer, it can’t be less than 70% of the original sale price. So if a jacket is on sale for £100, your offer can’t be lower than £70.
Once you’ve made your offer, the seller has 48 hours to:
- Accept the offer
- Decline it
- Make a counter-offer
If your offer is accepted by the seller, you have 24 hours to confirm your order.
Is the Buyer Service Fee included when I make an offer?
Yes. The Buyer Service Fee is included and will not be added on later. You can click the information icon to see the breakdown of fees in the negotiation area.
💡 Good to know - If the seller makes a counter offer and you agree to it, you are not obligated to place the order, but the offer will expire after 1 hour.
How do I make a counter-offer ?
If the seller has made an offer and you want to keep haggling, you can make your own counter offer.
First, log in to your account. You'll find all your current offers by following these steps:
On the App: Me → My Orders → Price Offers Sent
On the Website: My Account → Orders & Sales → Ongoing negotiations
Click the item concerned, then go to View the Negotiating Area to make a new offer.
You can also access the Negotiation Area directly from the item’s page.
💡 Good to know - When you make an offer on an item, it’s still available to purchase at the original price for the rest of the Vestiaire Collective community.
