The lower your offset the less likely your bid is to be accepted not more, since the price is likely to be higher the later you are in the auction.

So, a higher offset (to result in an earlier bid) might have resulted in your bid being accepted, however at 750 it would not have won since there was already a bid of that amount placed over 2 days before the auction ended.

It's the highest accepted bid that wins on Ebay, if the two highest accepted bids are for the same amount the earliest wins.

At the end of the day though, someone else was willing to bid at least one bid increment more than your bid. The only way to beat that is to be prepared to bid more than that, timing isn't the issue at all when someone is prepared to bid that much more than you are.

Hi
I lost the bid even though the item was at ÂGBP 700 until 4 seconds before the close. Should I reduce the number of seconds in future? My max was ÂGBP 750 and sold for ÂGBP 770.
Perhaps I was out-Gixened Smile
Thanks
