What is it with some people and their technique for bidding on Ebay?
There's an item (non bike related) that I've had my eye on that could have been a bargin as its been wrongly classified. It was a 10 day auction (don't you hate those!) and with 5 days to go 4 different bidders have bid 5 or 6 times each and got the price upto within £30 of the rrp (£400ish).
I just don't understand why people feel the urge to enter the bidding process until the very last minute (or use sniping software). And why do people feel compelled to bid 10 or 15 times, add £2 a time until they outbid the previous muppet putting a bid on days before the end of the auction?
It's not rocket science people - rock up to the auction with less than a minute to go, slap a bid on for the maximum it's worth to you and if that's more than it's worth to anyone else, its yours for a bit more than the next highest bidder. Leaving a bid there days before to be shot at makes no sense!
