    On the other hand everyone likes feeling like they got a good deal, just human nature. I run 20 or 25% off sales every month or two. I find it very funny when a few days or week after an item goes "off sale" I'll get an offer for more then the sale price. Example: $100 item, on sale 25% off for 2 weeks, BIN on sale is $75 someone can just buy it. After the sale ends someone comes and offers $85 and I accept. This is not unusual at all. The guy paying $85 feels like he got a great deal as I was asking $100 for it and I would think happier then someone who used the BIN button at $75 who "had to pay" the asking price.

    100% agree with this. I think people see ebay primarily as a bargain hunting place, and don't like paying 'sticker' price. I usually do a BIN for items under $50, and BINOBO for the rest. I'm not an established seller, so I don't think people will respect my pricing for expensive items.

    Accept X or above, reject below X
    go/nogo on all my BINOBO I never see the lowballs, either they offered what I'll take for it (or bought full price, usually international sales or people w/ low feedback) or they didn't and it's still for sale. The only time I see something is when they add some term to the sale which I have to reject manually (99 times out of 100, sometimes they just added a note)

    Anyone else get this? Too bad it doesn't go to Thursday.

    That's a great link, bookmarked. Based on that it could be a self on self, ribbed, herringbone weave?

    Great minds think alike! I just titled it as "RICH Burberry London Gold Ribbed Weave Herringbone 100% Silk Made in Italy Tie"

    Dammit. This 9.99 auction game is dangerous.

    I got the same one. Pretty sure you can just schedule your 10day for Thursday and it'll work. It works for me
