Unfortunetely Ebay has gone like this..All last minute bids and everybody is doing it. Takes away the fun of having an auction. I had my mates bike on the bay and the bids didn't come in till till the last 12 hrs with people going nuts last minutes. Pi..ses me off!!!!!!!!!!!!
My first ever go on e-bay was a CR500......6 months back......and that was normal bidding for 6 days.....i reached my limit and stopped but continuued to watch.....in the last 12 hrs another 9or10 bids came in.....half of these in last 15 min......went up £400.....an i stopped at £850.....great for the seller.....but there must have been a few
i think ebay should be used as it was planned, you see an item you want, think of the maxium then put that in and stick with it! I am guilty of last minute bidding as everyone always done it to me when i was playing fairly and so i realised if you bid on something early you sometimes get into a bid war with someone and the price goes up, if you just nip in the last minute or so it cuts out this bid war, I am sorry i used the if you cant bet them join them theory, i am ashamed
