NEW CUSTOM OFFER SENT should have an expiration date or when the offer is valid up until whatever date you choose… like “offer valid until (00/00/00)” then the system automatically shutdowns or clears the custom offer…
I suggested this earlier but no one showed any interest lol.
would be nice to have that.
I agree with you.
I think a buyer will either accept it promptly or not at all usually. If a day or two goes by without them accepting it you can consider it expired.
I withdraw my custom offers when a buyer doesn’t purchase it in a timely manner. “Timely” is relative for me. If I have spare time or really need the sale I will leave the offer open a long time. If I get busy or I start thinking the buyer isn’t a match for me I will go into the inbox, click Custom Offers, choose the thread it was in and withdraw the offer.
I write an expiration in my custom offers. Yes, I have to go in and delete them, so an automated system would be great. Until then, though, I’ll keep doing it manually.
It’s great to know. For a minute i thought it had to do with penalizing sellers for late delivery.
It occurred to me after I sent the offer that this person may drag it out Expiration of offer inclusion is a must. It just makes sense.
