e-bay auctions (in general)
#1
The other day I was watching an auction for 5 days when with 4 minutes to go the 1st and only bidder had the item won for $around 5 bucks (+ 15 S&H)... it was a dozen lighters. I wanted them and figured I'd go for 5.00 per lighter which is $60  - 12 for S&H meaning I could bud up to 48.

Well, with 30 seconds to go I bid 48. The other guy got it at $49.

 

Now, I didn't get the lighters, and sure seemed to hurt the other bidder (& only helped the auction seller).

I know no one here was the seller but after it ended I thought for a moment what if one of you guys was the other buyer? I just cost you $40.

If only we could communicate this info to each other so that we don't hurt each other.

I agree 100%.  Is there anyway to share our ebay names in PM form?
My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

Hey I sell way to much stuff on ebay to have you guys bonding together to lower prices.

But, seriously ever noticed that when you post on a forum about a great deal on an auction that all of a sudden there are a lot more bidders.
