PostPosted: Sat Nov 27, 2010 7:36 am    Post subject: HIGHEST MAXIMUM BID Reply with quote

Well, it has happened again. I lost an Ebay bid. Not any fautl of Gixen. I lost by 90 cents. even though I was the highest bidder.At first I had enetered about $78 then lowered to $69 mainly because I realy didn't want the item or at least had no great hunger for it, A similar situation happend before. So I lost it by just 90 cents. You must.. if you really want somethng badly enough.. bid the absolute highest amouint that you are willing to pay- out, even if you wind up payng more than you wanted.. it becomes yours. When you play games witih just a few cents or even dollars you might just loose. The trick to sucess with Ebay is to "OUT POWER" the competition. If an item you realize is worth .. let's say $200 and you think that at $140 it's a good Ebay deal; you must at least bid $250 to aquire it, even $300. that $300 bid could seal the deal at the next lowest bid which could only be $99. You never know who may have set their own automatic proxy bids. At $300 it gives you a better chance to win. But remember it also forces you to pay high prices if your competition also bids high. Only if you really want it... take the max bid.

If it really worths $200 max for you, why bid at $300? Snipe it at $200. Add a few steps if it's important and let it go. I would not want to pay $250 for the item which worth $200 max.

I'd probably be sniping at:

'$140 it's a good Ebay deal'

... it usually has to be a good deal before I am interested at all.
