    i dont get the issue. just put in your max bid and ebay will bid incrementally for you. also keeps you from overspending ultra impulsively at the last second. sorry spoo, i know that is good for you.

    I appreciate this POV, totally. And I really appreciate that you all want to bid on so many things at once :slayer:

    But understand a few points on my side of it.

    - Auctions have always been starting on Thursdays at 6:45pm EST and ending on Sundays at 6:45pm EST for about a decade. Aside from the odd BIN auctions I run, thats likely never going to change. Not only is it proven to be the most impacting time to list and end financially, I have literally thousands of people waiting to see what goes live on a Thursday, and a consistent end date as well.

    - My software (to my knowledge) does not allow for spacing out auctions in intervals. Im not changing my listing software anytime soon, so its just kind of the way it is.

    - If I ended 160 auctions 2 minutes apart each, thats 4 hours I have to sit in front of the computer and babysit invoices and wait for people to say that they bid on something that ended at 6:45pm and are waiting for something that ends at 10:45pm? Its not in my best interests to have that long a period in auctions ending. Primarily because...

    - As Stitchy said, you have 10 days to put in your best bid at any time. If you have a fixed price, put it out there. If you want to try and beat the clock, use a sniping service.

    I personally believe in the best bid forth at any time approach on things I bid on. Mainly because I forget when they end. But, if a pair of GG shoes gets listed at $9.99 with no reserve now, and I want to pay $450, Ill bid $450. Just sayin...

    This. I don't win a lot of auctions on eBay, but I also never spend more than I want to spend. I enter the most I would want to pay for something, and then let the chips fall where they may.
