Question EBAY questions

I'm selling something on Ebay / a reserve and no buy it now price. Everybody wants to know , What will ya take, Whats your reserve, Whats the lowest you'll go. Are these questions that should be answered before the auction is over?

I"d let it run it's course without revealing the "reserve" or what you'd take.

Good Luck

if your really trying to sell i think having a buy now and
stating a reserve is a good idea

Ask The Ebayers To Call You. I Sell Most Items Outside The Ebay Auction. It Is Hard To Actually Get The Ebayers To Call, But The Ones That Do Are Serious. The Others Are Usually A Waste Of Time With Emails And Wanting More Pics Etc.....

I like to sell items with no reserve and start my auction at the lowest i'll take and see where it goes. This has worked for me since sometimes you can get more than what you think its worth.

As far as your question thats up to the seller to determine if they want to give that info. out.

ebay is a joke for the most part...you list something on there with NO RESERVE and no BUY IT NOW, then ya have your friends bid it up to your minimum. oldest trick in the book. anytime i list anything on there i used it more for an advertising tool then an actual selling site. it does get a HUGE amount of exposure and as prev stated have sold more items off then have on...GOOD LUCK

yep.

if they call, you can always tell them you will take x amount and stop the auction early if they give you a deposit. like others have said, ebay motors is more about advertising then selling to the highest bidder. good luck

I sell lots of different items and almost always list with no reserve and no buy it now. I am always surprised with how much some itmes sell for.

It depends on what you are selling. High dollar items should have a reserve.

Don't forget, beware of the fraudulent emails. I get at least two per day trying to get my Ebay passwords.
