Thanks for the advice guys!

This is my very first auction ever :amuse: .

There's 7 "watchers" now. I kinda wish someone would bid :P ... So do people really wait til the last day, or actually like the last hour (or the last 5 minutes?)

I never understood why sometimes there are like 27 bidders and there's still 2 days left. I usually bid in the last minute also, do these people really want to pay as high a price as possible. *shrugs*

I did a little bit of research before I started, and I noticed that too. *Me confused*.

Both and everything in between! Some people don't know about snipers and they bid within the last 24 hours and less. . .
I can be a little OCD, when I'm selling on eBay it kills me! I watch my auctions like a hawk! LOL!

But alas, as a buyer I wait until the last 10 seconds or less!
Gotta get the best deal I can!

What are ya selling?
