How do you accept an ebay offer?

I have multiple diaper listings up on ebay. Someone emailed me and made me an offer on two of them. The auctions end it 5 hours. One has the reserve price met, the other does not. Neither have the "make an offer" option.

So, am I allowed to, and how do I, accept her offer?

Since you don't have the make an offer set up and it is so close to ending, I think you would change the listing, if you can or cancel them and create a new listing.

you can't accept an offer unless you have a buy it now or best offer set. She'll just need to bid and hope she wins.

Yeah, I don't think you can change anything if the auction ends in under 24hrs. If you end and relist, you risk more fees. I agree with pp about discount/free ship if she wins both.

Yeah, you are all correct. I can't do anything about it now. I emailed her and told her she just has to bid and see what happens but if the one that hasn't met the reserve doesn't sell I'd sell it to her for what the offered.

I have free shipping, but I agree, of I didn't I'd offer her combined shipping.

Thanks!
