    Starting at 99 cents attracts attention and encourages early bidding. Early bidding can sometimes lead to bidding wars, netting the seller more money. Even without a bidding war, the potential of getting the item really cheap will attract more buyers. And if the item goes from really cheap to only reasonable, most buyers will even rationalize to themselves: "Oh well, I'll bid just a little more. I would have paid this much anyway."

    Starting at your lowest acceptable bid will often times result in a single bid winner, since no bidding war was started. Then the seller is left selling the item at only his lowest acceptable price. Starting at these prices also generally creates a mentality in the buyer that it may be a good price, but there's no reason to bid until the end, then they forget.


    +1,000,000 and this is the model I base 99% of my auctions on. *ahem* link in my sig [​IMG]

    Bastard! [​IMG] [​IMG] Let me know if they don't fit, please.

    As long as an SF'er won I'm happy. I'd be happier if they didn't feet either of you knuckleheads and they wound up in my closet, however. [​IMG]

    Shoes arrived today in better condition that I'd hoped. Uppers look like they've only been worn once or twice with very minimal creasing and no marks whatsoever. And yes, they fit perfectly. [​IMG]

    Mine arrived yesterday and I'm getting it fitted on Tuesday. Took a while to have made but is well worth it. Quality is very high. Smell is a bit of a "love or hate" scenario. I'm definitely in the "Love" camp [​IMG]

    Will post some photos up soon.
