FixedPriceItem
(in/out) With this listing format, the selling is offering the item at a fixed price, although it is still possible for the seller to negotiate the price with prospective buyers using the Best Offer feature.

Additionally, the seller can set up a multiple-variation, fixed-price listing, where similar items can be sold through the same listing. An example of a multiple-variation, fixed-price listing might be a t-shirt (or another article of clothing) that is available in multiple color and size combinations.

Although listing durations may vary by eBay marketplace and category, typical listing durations for fixed-price listings are 3, 5, 7, 10, or 30 days, or GTC (Good 'Til Cancelled).

Note: As of February 19, 2019, GTC (Good 'Til Cancelled) is the only supported listing duration for fixed-price listings on the eBay Australia marketplace. Sellers on the eBay Australia marketplace will not have to take any action on existing listings with listing durations other than GTC, but if/when these items need to be relisted, only GTC will be supported. This listing duration change for fixed-price listings will eventually roll out globally. Around March 18, 2019, this change will roll out to most categories on the North America sites (US/CA) and Asia sites. Around April 1, 2019, this change will roll out to all categories on all Europe sites, except for the Cars, Motorcycles and Vehicles category (Category ID 9800) on the UK and Italy marketplaces.

A seller can create a Second Chance Offer immediately after a listing ends and up to 60 days after the end of the listing.

eBay does not charge an Insertion Fee, but if the bidder accepts the offer, the regular Final Value Fee is charged. In the case of an Unpaid Item, the seller should ensure that everything has been done to resolve the issue with the winning bidder before sending a Second Chance Offer to another bidder.
