In the eBay terms and conditions the conclusion of the contract is regulated as follows depending on the respective format of the offer:

“§ 6 Offer formats and conclusion of contract (…)
2. If a seller uses the eBay services to list an item in auction or fixed-price format, he or she makes a binding offer to conclude a contract for this item. In doing so, he or she determines a starting or fixed price and a period within which the offer can be accepted (offer duration). If the seller sets a minimum price in the auction format, the offer is subject to the condition precedent that the minimum price is reached.
3. The seller can additionally provide offers in auction format with a buy-it-now function. This can be used by a buyer as long as no bid has been placed on the item or a minimum price has not been reached. eBay reserves the right to change this function in the future. (…)
4. In the case of fixed-price items, the buyer accepts the offer by clicking on the “Buy Now” button and then confirming. In the case of fixed-price items for which the seller has selected the “immediate payment” option, the buyer accepts the offer by clicking the “Buy Now” button and completing the payment process immediately following. The buyer can also accept offers for several items by placing the items in the shopping cart (if available) and completing the immediately following payment process.
5. In auctions, the buyer accepts the offer by submitting a bid. Acceptance is subject to the condition precedent that the buyer is the highest bidder at the end of the bidding period. A bid expires if another buyer makes a higher bid during the offer period. (…)
6. In the event of premature termination of the offer by the seller, a contract is concluded between the seller and the highest bidder, unless the seller was entitled to withdraw the offer and cancel the present bids.
7. Buyers can only withdraw bids if there is a justified reason for doing so. After a justified bid withdrawal, no contract is concluded between the user, who is again the highest bidder after the end of the auction due to the bid withdrawal, and the seller.
8. In certain categories, the seller can provide his offer with a price suggestion function. The price suggestion function enables buyers and sellers to negotiate the price for an item. (…)
11. If an item is deleted by eBay before the end of the offer period, there is no effective contract between buyer and seller.”
