    I made a new Ebay account and I'm trying to sell some of my services. Problem is, I can't figure out how to make my item Buy It Now only. I have done multiple searches on Google, but it seems like all of the instructions and details I get are way out dated.

    When I make the ebay ad, I can select Buy It Now, but that doesn't de-select the Auction part. I tried to make it 0 and do anything I could to make it be Buy It Now only. Now I just checked some of my listings and even though I had Auction and Buy It Now both up (which I would have been fine with) they take the Buy It Now option away as soon as someone bids on the item. Now I have .99 bids and no option to buy it now for $100. Ebay and the people on it are a joke. Why would someone bid .99 on an item I posted for $100+. I'm already regretting even trying out Ebay.

    Hopefully someone can give me some pointers and info on how to do this, if even possible for a new account.

    Right above should be "fixed price listing". Click on that.

    That was it. Thanks. I guess I had the simple form selected where there were not as many options.
