Agreed. Unless it is a rare or expensive item I don't see the point in holding an auction it normally means the item is listed for days / weeks but the real bidding only starts on the last day so you have wasted all that time.

I think it better to list it with a price as the turnover will be quicker, as a buyer I no longer take part in auctions I found them a waste of time and not really an auction.

I have been gazumped many times, at the last minute someone outbids you leaving you no time to respond that wouldn't happen in an auction house the bidding continues until everyone is done.

I agree to a point but if you have stock you need to turn over then some as auctions will sell. Maybe for less than buy it now but turnover is important if itís a business. Buying as an auction is simply put in the highest your prepared to pay and eBay steps it up against other bids. You donít necessarily pay your highest offer. Can get some bargains as well if you search for ambiguous listings and auctions ending in the middle of the night are sometimes good as no one is watching or bidding live.

Whilst this now seems to have turned into a debate about how best to flog stuff on eBay it started as a bit of promotion of an individuals business venture nothing to do with Palace.

Sorry to be a miserable git but this is a message board not gumtree and on the past this sort of promotion was not allowed.

Guess these days anything goes.

Thatís why it is in the general talk section and not palace. But I do get your point, I wasnít trying to be annoying just hard to get yourself out there if you donít take a few risks.

Have a good weekend

A tip: if you have a minimum price you are happy with then put some as auction bids starting with that price. Add postage on them as well so your minimum take less the eBay charges is what you get. People like to haggle and auction is a bit like that. Have a buy it now price as well so if it hits that youíve made your dough. There is always or normally someone selling it cheaper so scan the item and at least match that price.
Pointless having bits taking space when itís something you donít want anyway.
Lots of a small amount can still add up.
Good luck


I did do a couple of auctions, I kind of mix it around and am seeing what works and what doesnít work. Iíve been selling a few things for less than I probably could have got just to try and get some positive feedback but over half never gave it to me!

Iíve seemed to do better so far with but it now, taken a couple of offers a few pound less but have revived the full amount a few times aswell.

Hi Sport
If you find some people are not giving you feedback, try giving them feedback first, something simple like "prompt payer" I found that encouraged them to do likewise.

Also - I gave up on the auctions, it didnt really seem to provide enough bids to make it worthwhile, I just ended up putting the price I wanted & a slightly lower price as a buy it now price, some things sold quickly some took a little while longer but it worked for me-

Obviously you still get the planks that seem to think they are being clever, on an item listed for £75.00 they bid £15.00, I just rejected the offer & let them know accordingly

Hi Dubai eagle thanks for the advice and pointers I have been giving feedback on the buyer and even asking for some feedback back and a lot so far have just ignored me. Managing to make a sale almost everyday now so going reasonably well.

Havenít had much luck with auction and items seem to go for a lot less when on auction.
