ebay - Guess I Made a Good Enough Offer

Bought a used portable scanner kit today from Ebay. Kit included scanner, power adapter, 4GB SD card, carrying case. I've seen the scanner + adapter alone sell on ebay for about $40.

It was one of those "make offer" options. There was a $10 shipping cost. So, I figure, my max is about $50 but I'll start off low, offering $29 + $10 shipping.

To my surprise, the seller took the offer without even a counter offer .

I guess the seller really wanted to unload the item and didn't really price check as to previous sold prices.
