As a eBay buyer, you are trying to negotiate, that is, to quote at the best price (buy now) or to quote at the lowest price (auction items). Generally, these listings are the ones that receive the least visitors and most of the time it is due to the loss of keywords in the title field (product sequence, product name, etc.). Therefore, the key is to find words or spelling lists that do not have important words in the title field. Since eBay’s default search box only searches the title field, you can often increase the chances of finding deals by checking the “Search title and description” checkbox.
The next thing you need to know is the “art of getting a price on an eBay item.” A great way to find out the price of an item is to look at the final listings. To search the final list, click the “Advanced Search” link in the lower right of the search box. Please check the “Complete Listings Only” checkbox before starting the search.
Always “Search reserved auctions”. When you see the reserve price tag, you will be amazed at how many people don’t bother to bid, most likely a huge 10% savings on the item if the reserve price is low. However, remember to place your offer within the last 10 seconds.
A new way to save money on goods is to offer sellers a final offer. The main thing here is that you will find the most recent listing item (less than 100 visits later) and less than 50 seller comments. Try to keep your starting bid at least 10% off the average eBay price (see Measurement Item Price).
If you’re an eBay pro, you’ve often only bid twice on an item. The first bid is an option, which means that you can buy the item in “Buy Now” because you are more likely to win the item at a lower price at the auction. The second bid should arrive within the last 10 seconds of the auction, this is longer if you receive a call.
You can find out a lot about your competition (other bidders) by looking at their previously won items and their bidding pattern. You will be amazed at how many people make your final offer for a total dollar, which means you only need to add a penny to steal them in the last 10 seconds.
You are more likely to win an item at a lower price on weekdays and weekends. Arguing is simple, less competitive and more people with jobs will have more or less the opportunity to bid, thus increasing the probability of winning an item at a lower price.
Did you know that eBay occasionally issues PayPal coupons that can save you anywhere (5% -10%) when paying for your eBay items?
You can save a lot by buying from sellers with little or no feedback. But again, the main thing is to know your seller, then you will not get burned. This is what I do before bidding, I first email the seller and ask about the status of the item. If he responds, I check the email headers for the remote IP address, then go to a WHOIS database and verify the location of the seller. If everything is correct so far, I will contact the seller by phone to verify the item, its condition, etc. Note that eBay only covers $ 175, so it’s best to apply for insurance and always ask for tracked shipping. I was able to contact PayPal as a payment option.
