Bidding on Ebay Why?? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Ebay.com has published some reports in there seller's area where they have done EXTENSIVE market research.

They have found that people will bid on items that already have multiple bids. Even if there is the same item offered elsewhere with no bids. Its some sort of psychological response in the buyer that makes the item look more "desireable" if others are interested.

you can bid on something that you're selling but only once... i know it's allowed but if you do it more than that then you can get in trouble... i've only upped one of my auctions once (so yeah, i'm guilty)

Hello,

I thought I would just add some information to the ebaying. If it makes you feel better you probably not loosing your bids by only .50 . It just looks like you are. The person bidding against you might have put in a bid $10.00 more than yours but because the increments per bid above yours may only be .50 or 1.00 so it looks like you lost by that much when they win above your bid. ie.

Your maximum bid is 5.01 for a pan
Others max bid is 15.01 for same pan

If you two are the only ones bidding your competitor will win the pan for $5.51. One .50 bid increment above yours.

I was hoping that would be cheaper for you. That would be a good pan for ice cream cakes! Or possibly a whipped cream filling. I can't imagine loading that up with buttercream. I got sniped again yesterday evening! I have been trying to find books by Mary Ford that are located in the US, thought I had one and then lost it in the last seconds of the auction! Grrrrrr! Anyways, maybe one of these pans would work for you? I have one, but haven't tried it yet. http://www.abcdistributing.com/store/vstore/283496.cfm?q=dome%20pan&prevIndex=0&nextIndex=2&t=1&cart=
