Bidding perfect is not something that most people think about. We often make quick bids without giving much thought what we are actually doing. This can lead to frustration and annoyance when the highest bidder wins the auction while they weren’t even the highest bidder.
How to bid like a PRO on eBay!
How can you bid perfectly on eBay?
- If you want to win an item on eBay, your best bet is to catch the last seconds of the auction and offer a higher bid than anyone else.
- If there is a Buy It Now option, you may even be able to buy the item right now without having to wait for the auction to conclude.
- Also, make sure that you bid as high as the reserve price indicated in the listing as soon as possible. This way, you have a better chance of winning the item before other bidders are drawn in by the low beginning price.
