What to do on ebay if I received a private offer but my item is still on auction?

I am selling an item on eBay through auction and I received sort of an offer through question asking if I am willing to trade locally and if so is it ok to sell cheaper than the buy it now price. Depending on her/his offer if it's reasonable I think I would prefer trading locally just to save the hassle of packaging and shipping it. Best would of course be to save the ebay fees as well. But if I close the auction will it be unfair for the bidders? Can sellers close the auction before the time ends? Is there a safe and secure procedure to deal with these kinds of problems? Thanks.

So long as there are 12 hours or more remaining you can cancel all bids and end the listing early. You will still have to pay the fee. Make sure they are serious and not some joker. If you decide to sell locally do not use PayPal. Accept cash only.
