Amazon releases "Make an Offer" feature for customers negotiating prices on third-party sellers

Thursday 11 December 2014 00:33 CET | News

Amazon has released the Make an Offer feature to enable customers to negotiate item prices on third-party seller offers, reports.

Sellers enable the Make an Offer feature for items to show customers they are willing to negotiate for a lower price than the price listed. When selecting ‘Make an Offer’ on an item’s product detail page, a customer can enter and submit a new price of their choosing.

The seller will receive the customer’s lower price offer through email, at which point the seller can accept, reject or counter the offer. The seller and customer can continue to negotiate through email until the negotiation is complete. When a seller accepts a customer’s offer, the customer is notified and can place the item into their shopping cart at the agreed upon new price for checkout and purchase. The negotiation is private, and buyers aren’t able to pay more than the original listed price.

The feature is launching with 150,000 items and Amazon says it will expand to more items in 2015.
