To see the actual selling price on an Ebay auction "Best Offer" (as of September 2020 and for quite a while before now):

1) Click on a completed Ebay auction

2) Click on "See original listing"

3) Use your browser to "view page source" (right-click or try Ctrl-U, different browsers have different methods).

4) Search in the website code for "taxex" 

5) Look at the "taxExclusivePrice" for the actual selling price.

I see these instructions are also described on watchcount.com from August 2020: http://www.watchcount.com/ebay-best-offer-sold-price.php#Aug2020upd8

It hasn't been a big secret or anything and it has been mentioned in these forums before, but I'm sure the information has been mostly floating aimlessly in the endless sea of noise that is... the internet:grin:

Thanks for the tip.  Watchcount hasn't been producing any useful results lately, just showing the full price.  Flipper tools says that site is down due to abuse.  This works, so if at least one method is working, the mysteries are unlocked.

why do they keep making it hard to find actual final price?

Great question.  Maybe eBay is using the original price to show volume of sales to Wall Street, and they don't want anyone knowing that it is significantly less, if it is. 

I'm surprised we can still see Sold prices at all on eBay.  Try to see one on Amazon.  I'm glad they are on eBay, at least something to go by.

Yeah just wait til' they try to go BIG DATA and charge for the information like everyone else.  Hell, that worthpoint website has been making a business out of archiving ebay prices and charging for it for decades.

If you bring the book up in a sold search with some other items you will be able to get a tight range on the price - as it sorts it by the actual price sold not the ask

That doesn't work anymore.  It worked for a while, but I guess Ebay got complaints that their sold listings were "out of order".

I thought this thread was to suggest that best offer isn’t always there to make an offer lower than a starting price
