Shoppers can buy, sell or trade items on the website iOffer without bidding wars or limited auction times. Buyers negotiate the price of an item by making an offer, which the seller accepts, counters or declines. Registered members may list items for sale or trade and place want ads for the items they seek. A buyer does not pay to use iOffer; a seller or trader pays a nominal fee for each completed transaction.
