    OK just to add to this. Although I don't park my domains there anymore someone made me a pathetic offer on one of them. So I logged in expecting to be able to cancel straight away as has happened to me and what do I find? I cannot cancel negotiation without first countering. Of course the moment I counter I cannot cancel the bid. What gives?

    Again... this was something I personally discussed with Matt Bently before he was demoted. This has always been a dumb 'feature' intended to annoy sellers with non-cancellable low-ball bids.

    1. Fixed price: There is a buy it now button, no room for negotiation.

    2. A suggested price. The seller sets a non binding asking price. A bidder can offer less, that ammount or even more. The seller retains the rights to accept, counter or cancel the negotiation regardless of the offer. The seller is free to counter with any price.

    3. Make offer. The seller lists his/her domain with no indication of what they are interested in. In this scenario a seller can counter with any offer or accept. The seller will only be able to cancel after coming back with one counter offer however. This counter offer can be of any price.

    I definitely admit it's not very savvy to suggest a price and then counter with something higher. This almost never leads to a sale but it's a freedom some want.

    Dealing with such negotiations can be frustrarting but we also provide the comment field where such obvious faux pas can be pointed out. Sometimes a bad negotiation tactic like this can be used as leverage to close a deal.

    Here's a novel idea: how about getting rid of #2 totally. That would clear a lot up.
