I want to sell my Laura Ashley leather couch.
I need a minimum of £400 which judging by recent sales of the same couch on ebay is realistic .But these ones have all started at .99p.
Does it put off bidders if I put a reserve of say £350?

AFAIK bidders won't actually see what the reserve is, just that "reserve has not yet been met" (or something like that)

so it wouldn't put you off bidding again if "reserve not met" came up?

Not really. Wouldnt expect to get a Laure Ashley couch for 99p anyway grin
