@SpooPoker have you considered ending the auctions a bit earlier? I think 2 hours or so will work.
It will help for EU based customers to bid in the last hours (I keep losing by $1 to last-minute bidders)

Agree with this. I sometimes leave an early bid to fortune, but you have to be present at the end to be competitive with the most sought after items.

I get this a lot, and also spacing out the auctions by some so let me put both in perspective on our end- ending earlier for the small percentage of clients on the EU time zones just doesnt compare to meeting the sweet spot of east and west coast domestic bidders.

For spacing out the auctions, with 500 auctions ending every week, if I put two minutes inbetween each of them... you do the math on how much longer thats going to take. And considering the fact that it takes about 2 hours to invoice everyone once the last one closes and then 3 hours to prepare the shipping for the next day after that.... then getting to the store at 5am the next morning to have the team get them out to you in under 12 hours.... not gonna happen.

TLDR, just bid more and bid early :)

I should note, this has always been my approach. I am easily confused my technology and trickery, so I just toss the best number in and then usually forget that I bid until I get a flurry of emails around 7 on sunday

Fellas, Spoo and his team are some of the hardest working; dedicated to customer service people I have EVER encountered and yes I live close enough to LuxeSwap to have witnessed it many times.
