- When's a good time to finish an ebay auction?
Evening, unless the thing I’m sell might be attractive to traders, in which case week day afternoon, second half of the week.
Monday evening, everyone who’s been outbid over the weekend will have seen it once the frenzy ended, but upped the amount they’re willing to pay as a result of being outbid…Posted 4 years agoImabigkidnowSubscriber
Used to work for an internet mail order company – 1500-3000 orders a week.
Busiest time on sales
Sunday evenings 5-10. Just don’t coincide with The Voice/BGT/Rugby/ etc etc live show [EDIT which may account for unexpected pittances: but compare with similar products recently ended]
Thursday lunchtimes 12-3 (though this is less so on ebay as your much less likely to have an auction item delivered in time for the weekend but there’ll still be browsers about doing best price shopping searches)
[2nd EDIT – if you list it Sunday mid evening ish on a 7 dayer.. you’ll pick up that weeks browsers, Thursday lunchtime browsers and then catch some of next Sundays too!]Posted 4 years agolastyMember
Alus end my bike stuff Monday 8-ish ..
Reasoning being, bits get broken at the weekend, to be honest the last thing any one wants to do post ride is source parts, and also riders contemplate how they’ll be better (instead of working) and decide a pair of Hope skewers are just the ticket !!Posted 4 years agosimons_nicolai-ukMember
Depends somewhat on what you’re selling. If it’s a ‘commodity’ item – say an iPhone – where there are identical items ending every day there’s no need to do long auctions and 3 days will get you the same money.
It’s a bit random though – look at sold prices on iPhones and it varies a surprising amount.Posted 4 years ago
