Nothing wrong with giving it a shot every once and a while. The low start will encourage bidding that could drive up the price. On the other hand, you need to be sure you get some traffic to your auction and your item isn't a strange size (e.g., size 13AAA shoes). I'm an eBay small timer, but my first few auctions started at $9.99 because I thought I could be Spoo. Instead, I took a bath, big time. My short answer would be not to try this, however, as I said at the outset, nothing wrong with running an experiment every once and a while for fun and with the expectation that you may take a bath.
Set a BIN auction with what you want for it at good til canceled and forget about it until it sells.
Had a similarly frustrating call last night trying to get a recent neg feedback removed. Like talking to a wall.
Think you have 5 working days to post it from the label date. You can always void and buy another one
1. Not sure this is correct, I have never spoken to a non-American customer service representative when I have called eBay.
5. After the first time this happened, I now inspect all shirts. I didn't even try to sell the first one I just use it for my mannequin.
I think I only called ebay 2 or 3 times, last night's frustrating call was def overseas. Think the previous ones were about accounting things, had a native English speaker. Maybe they send the irate customers (trying to get feedback revision) directly overseas.
Has anyone ever sold mismatched pants/coat as a suit? I just did it twice in the same week, apparently. I just got the first one back, it's so close, so freaking close, the weaves are identical, the color looks identical except in different lights they show up differently. I took a few extra flash pics, seeing if that would accentuate the difference, but no dice. Wonder if it could be the difference between coat maybe going through a few more dry clean cycles than the pants or vice versa? Pants and coat are always made of the exact same material, no exceptions, correct? Both were relatively expensive suits, I'm bummed.
