Goofbid and other sites/apps that integrate with eBay probably work through eBay's API which has lost functionality (ie: certain fields of data) over the years due to privacy concerns, security issues, GDPR, etc. These changes irreparably break the applications that rely on them in the ways that you are noticing. The same has happened to many other APIs from popular sites.

Regrettably goofbid appears to return zero results, at the moment.
Maybe ebay have stymied them, maybe they have a simple server problem. I hope it
is the latter.

While I was searching for the app I tried to describe in my original post I did find WatchCount.com site. I also found the GoofBid site (www.goofbid.com).
MORE IMPORTANTLY I found out where I got the original information from: IT WAS YOU:)
This is the link to the original mail about WatchCount that you sent:
I haven't quite figured out what I am doing wrong with GoofBid's eBay Best Offers Tool and eBay Best Offer History Tool or where I first found out about it. It is what I was looking for where you can enter a user's eBay ID into it and it will show you all the times they accepted an offer. At least that is what I think it does. So far I haven't gotten to give me any results at all when I enter a seller name who I know has things they will accept an offer on.
I think they have changed the user interface so I didn't recognize it until just now even though Petru Ulici pointed it out to me yesterday

The results don't just included completed auctions, but alsoGoto watchcount.com and paste the ebay item number into the keywords box.
Buy-It-Now listings that were optionally enabled with the "Make Offer"
button. For those listings, you will never know how much was actually
paid for the item. They only show the Buy-It-Now price. The actual
sale price could have been the Buy-It-Now price, or something less.
Therefore item number 113707651429
