Ebay Auction Secrets, How to be sure that you win the auction

How To Bid To Be Sure That You Win The Auction on eBay

If you find an item on Ebay that you simply must have - no matter what, there is really only one way to be sure that you win the auction.
  • You want to try to be the first bidder
    • This means that you want to check new listings as soon as possible - and often.
    • And, use eBay's email alert to tell you when this item is listed - in case you might miss it
      With this method, you need to check your email often.

  • And, you need to bid ALMOST the very most in the world that you would ever pay.
    • If this is the only one you've ever seen, you may never get another chance.
    • You don't want to be screaming after the auction that you would have paid that much if you'd known!

  • If someone else has already bid on the item by the time you found it, bid now and bid HIGH.
    • If you bid high enough now, you may scare the other bidder enough to stay away.
      This is especially true if you have a reputation for bidding high enough to get what you want. Other bidders will know in advance that they don't stand a chance.
    • Bidding less than your highest now will just start the competition bids from growing and growing.

  • And, you need to snipe (see our section on sniping) at the very end.
    • You can't sit back and feel sure that no one else will try to snipe in a higher bid at the last minute.
    • This is when you snipe in the very, very most you would ever pay.

You may be tempted  to write the seller and offer him the  moon if he will  shut down the bidding immediately. Don't. This ruins everything an auction stands for. Other bidders deserve their chance against the richest and the fastest. Besides, this method could get you and the seller ousted for good.
