So, I've listed several similar items on Ebay. Different brands. The higher end brands have been listed with a realistic sale price albeit much lower than RRP and the old stuff that I just want rid of that I've listed at £1.99.
There are similar number of views and watchers for both but only bids for the second one. I was quite hopeful of selling the nicer item but I guess people only bid if starting price is ridiculously low?
I wouldn't say pointless, I bid early on items because it's part of my system of keeping track of which ones I'm truly keen about wanting to buy. I've tried Snipers & total failure so better for me to rely on Ebay reminders about stuff I have bids on.
it really is potluck figuring out what will sell on Ebay, though, agree about that part.
Ebay now get arsey with you if you remove an item from sale that already has bids on. I did it a few weeks ago, and got a grumpy warning message that they reserve the right to charge a fvf if you repeatedly close auctions early when items have bids.
