That got me to wondering how I would accept his offer if I did want to accept it. I've been talking with a friend about this and we have determined that the most practical way to accept an offer when there is no Make Offer tab in the listing is to send the potential buyer an invoice for the agreed upon price.
The invoice would be for a different price than the listed price because I would be accepting his lower offer. This is all hypothetical because I'm not going to be accepting any offers on this listing other than my listed price. On the other hand, I would like to know how to do this for future reference.
I know some of the members here have AAPK stores and some are also very active and well versed with Ebay.
Can anybody tell me how to send an invoice on Ebay for a different price than the listed price?
Thanks for your help folks.

Change the price and make it really high so someone else won’t take it in the mean time, then take the offer when it’s made. I’m not certain if you can send an invoice without a sale, but I haven’t tried what you are talking about, I try to keep it simple.
Hope that helps.

In the fold down menu, where it says "send invoice", click on that, the invoice comes up and you can change the final price, the shipping, etc. I don't know if that will help you. It's easier for me to do it rather than explain how to do it. I'm pretty sure also that when someone makes an offer and you don't have the "make offer" option enabled, you can still accept it. There is a button somewhere that you click on that enables you to accept the offer or counter offer. Again, easier to do than to explain. I believe you can send an invoice through PayPal also.
