Is there a 2020 way of seeing a best offer/sold for listing?

I knew some of the websites we used to be able to use no longer work. Any way of seeing what a best offer item sold for in 2020? Thanks for the help!

If you use the old watchcount site and click on the true price or whatever used to show it, it takes you to a message that talks about a way you may be able to do it, but it sounded more complex than I cared to try. Maybe it was just the scary word that I don't know that pushed me away..."open the gobbledygook HTML source-code"...WHAT?

I guess that this information has some sort of value and/or expected level of privacy, but it is irritating how ebay has over the years slowly shut down things that help give you a better idea of your competition and to some has made it easier to defraud bidders by hiding bidder identities.

2020-Aug Update: Currently, the only way we're aware of to potentially see accurate Best Offer (BO) selling prices for BIN/fixed-price items on eBay requires a little extra work on your part, in the form of some additional clicks/keys within your desktop browser. So... If you're ready for a mini- treasure hunt, just follow these steps! ... 1) In our Sold Items & Completed Listings search results, click a BO true? selling-price here on eBay link (specifically the here on eBay part) to be taken to the ended-item on eBay. 2) On that eBay ended-item page, have your browser open the gobbledygook HTML source-code of that page (find in your browser menu: View Page Source or similar). 3) Use Control-F (Mac: Command-F) in your browser to search the page source-code for "taxExclusivePrice". 4) What follows may be the true BO selling price (but we can't know for sure).

I've used this for completed BOs that didn't show up on sortsof. It works because ebay needs to record the price for purposes of calculating taxes.

Nice, maybe someday I will see if I can do it. I like to track the lower serial numbered Garvey sales. I guess i don't need to know exact price, but sometimes the BO prices can be considerably lower than BIN.
