Labels are used to show the Buy or Bid status :
These are samples for an item listed at a Buy price of $ 500 and a BidAsk Spread of $400-500

  • Your Bid: $500 Sold to you
    When you pay the Buy price of $ 500 the item is sold immediately to you and the sale for this item is closed.
  • Your Bid: $400 Accepted
    The BidAsk spread ($400-$500) shows the range between the minimal accepted price and the Buy price. When you place a bid within the spread your bid is automatically accepted by the seller, but the items only sell to you if no higher bid is received or the Buy price is paid prior to the closing.
  • Your Bid: $425 High Bid
    When your bid is within the BidAsk Spread and you are the high bid holder, the items only sell to you if no higher bid is received or the Buy price is paid prior to the closing.
  • Your Bid: $50 Too Low
    When your bid is below the BidAsk Spread. Sellers usually do not accept bids below the BidAsk Spread. Increase your bid to be successful.
  • Your Bid: $450 Outbid
    When your bid has been outbid by another user. Increase your bid to be successful.
In short your label has to stay green to be succesful.
