Hi everybody,

I just wanted to share this experience :
my bid (7.51 GBP) was placed at 8:09:58
somebody placed a bid for the same amount (7.51 GBP) at 8:09:59, ie one second later
At 8:10:04 bidding ended.
Guess who won !

At this level, I think Gixen of course did its job and I'm thankful, but chance assisted me more than anything else ...

The point is : it's the highest AND EARLIEST accepted bid that always wins on Ebay.

Just wanted to share, it's a clear exemple.

Good luck everybody !

Yes, it's a good point, it's not always the last accepted bid that wins.

The earlier bid rule doesn't get quoted here very often, but occasionally that is the only distinguishing factor between two bidders.
