Thread Name: BS: eBay Strategy
Subject: RE: BS: eBay Strategy
I buy a lot on ebay, I use SNIP PL they are based in Poland and cost only pence for each snipe. They come in at 6 seconds before end of auction. If you really want something, bide your time it will always come up again.I agree the prices some stuff goes for is madness, but always read the sellers feedback and see if the highest bidder has won something else from the seller in the past, because often a seller has a second account to bid the item up themselves, I have caught this on a few times. Foolish for giving themselves feedback if they won their own item through a high self bid.Then you see it listed again a week later.E bay will look into it if you report it. That's why you see many accounts suspended and auctions ended early.
