[quote="Cupid"]The seller ended the first listing and cancelled all bids on it, they were not able to edit the listing to put a Buy It Now option on it because it already had bids. They then relisted with a Buy It Now Option and a minute or so later, the buyer purchased it with that option, so it ended. I think most likely the buyer contacted the seller and asked if they would accept a certain price, the seller did and that is how they went about selling it to that buyer.[/quote]

Ah..... that makes sense! If I'd looked properly, I would have seen that the relisted item ended with BIN. I didn't realise you couldn't add a BIN option when there were already bids, though.
Thanks for the enlightenment!

Post subject: can anyone explain this?
This is really an ebay, not a gixen question, but i thought some of you may be able to explain to me how this happened, cos you seem to understand the arcance workings of ebay much better than i do...
So, I had a snipe scheduled on item 190328530721, which was due to end in a couple of days. Last night, I logged in to my account here and noticed that the auction had been ended early - ebay said at 23.06 (19th aug). In my ebay watched items, i saw that the item had been relisted. Hooray! I thought... BUT, when I went to view the relisting, - item 190329638252 - it had already ended, at 23.10 (19th Aug)!!!
Now, my bid was significantlly higher than the selling price so I'm kind of annoyed (though not with gixen, i hasten to add, as there is nothing i/you could have done.... even if i had been manually watching the item, and seen it end early, i probably wouldn't have caught the relisting in time....)
More importantly, I'm slightly bemused and curious as to how someone could have ended an item and relisted it with a finishing time less than 4 minutes away? And why on earth would you do that?!
