i just don't think people like putting in their max bids. afraid they may pay their max bid rather than "get a deal".VaughnA said:I've done pretty good lately. But I'm very picky and usually go there after I've decided on exactly what I want and my max price. I'll just put in my max bid and let it go from there. And I'll go ahead and put in my bid instead of waiting till the last minute. That way I don't have to watch it for a long time. If others are doing the same thing it will jump up to someones max bid immediately. If it's more than I want to pay then I'm out. It's the system and that's the way it works, if it bites you then it's your own fault.
That would be interesting, at least as an option.Andy69 said:ebay needs to change the way auctions are run. No more absolute time limit. The initial auction should be run for a set amount of time, and then extended for an extra amount of time after the last bid. That way, there is no mad rush at the end to get your bid in. Everyone gets to bid until what they are willing to pay has been exceeded, just like in a live auction. I think the last minute bidding actually hurts the final sale price in a lot of instances, as someone who would be willing to bid more than the sale price may not get their bid in in time.
Sometimes a high price early on, if it's already near their limit, will scare bidders away, especially if there are other auction for the same product.russelr said::idea: why doesnt everyone just wait till 1 minute left to bid and keep the prices down? :thumbsup:
that's how i managed to get a good deal on something. i was the only bid while the same item was currently bid lower but ending later. it went for more than the auction i won.Jesse D Smith said:Sometimes a high price early on, if it's already near their limit, will scare bidders away, especially if there are other auction for the same product.
