    Default EBAY... For Peets sake? (Warning Pointles Rant)

    Ok we all like a deal or two.

    BUT!

    Why 'o' WHY do people watch items put on ebay without bidding on them?

    And
    Or

    Why Bid £2.00 on something worth around £4k?

    Like they would give it over? Contract or not!

    Gets on my &i&s

    If i see something i need or want and think its a deal i will hit buy now!
    If i see something i need or want and think its worth e.g £100 and was willing to pay up to £100 i will bid £100 wether its at .99p or not and if it goes for more 50 bids down the line someone thinks its worth more than i doo. My loss.




    Rant over

    Case in question for just "watching" an item..............

    6 months ago I was watching several car related items but because I had no cash, I was intetested to see how much they went for to give me some idea what I'd be up against. Saved my pennies for a few more months, new roughly how much I needed and when similar items came up again, I won every one.

    must agree with the watching lot..........as a seller it bug's you when you get no bid's, but i do watch item's from time to time to get an idea of the market so to speak

    although i also try to wait as long as i can with a figure in my head of how much i will pay...

    But my point is. If you think £100 why bid £10.07 because if you bid £100 as your willing to pay upto £100. if some PLONKER Bid £20.00 you will still get a bargin! as you win unless out bid. Leaving it till last min' and putting in £5.00 you still wont win as that guy who put £100 in with 365 days left gets the deal! And saves himself £80.00 EDIT (oops wrong maths)
    Am i wrong?

    i will alway's bid my maximum within the last few min's or so if it hasn't gone over that already......then just wait to see if i have won it...if not then so be it, but i see what you mean about the silly prices going in....and wishing you get it for that

    dont forget e-bay is all about wanting and geting a bargain in the end, and if your bid of £100.00 is the highest then if no one else want's it you do get a return from the figure sold for...and all are happy
