We love those "snipers!" I'm thinking about starting up a sniper school to recruit more of them for all our sellers. lol

I have been in the eBay world for about 7 years and I found that Mondays are the worst and from there it gets a little better until the weekend, Saturday being the best. However, you do have to factor in holidays, world events and disasters.

I guess the most important thing to sell is good detail descriptions I sold a I phone 4 rated 8/10 condition for $315 with a poor description and other similar phones sold to $400 and more

Thanks Utilitysupplies. I will be auctioning small lots of a variety of new and used items which would probably appeal more to someone bidding after hours. I don't think I have the type and quantity of items that a person would want to make time to bid on during their work day. I think the main thing I need to do is have a lot of items of the same type up at once ending a few minutes apart so someone drawn to an item may find other auctions they are interested in to combine shipping costs.

For fixed price listing, I think the relevance of end time is negligible. However, some people do still tend to buy near the end probably in fear it may not be relisted, the price will go up, or just because ebay sent them reminders near the end of the listing.

On auctions, I think it depends on your target buyer. Business/Industrial items could be bought by business people who only do during work hours, or by proprietors looking for a deal after their normal work hours. I think you need to decide based on the product and potential buyer. If consumers like to buy the item, I like to end it on Sunday nights. If businesses may buy, I like to end later morning after people have checked their morning email, or early afternoon, after lunch, but before they are just thinking about getting off for the day.

This is a work in progress. Do you have a better suggestion of what time is the best to list? I will be listing a lot of machinists items like drill bits, chucks, reamers, cobalt lathe bits, carborundum, and a lot of things that I am still learning the names for. Is it best to have these auctions end while bidders are at work, or would I do better having auctions end the way I usually do when people are home in the evenings? Any suggestions would be appreciated as I will be traveling in territory that is new to me. Right now I'm trying to learn the language a little so I can describe items correctly and place them in the proper category.

I'm glad I visited this board--ignore my previous post! I've sold a lot of books and collectible items where I wanted to reach my bidders when they were home for the evening. This will be my first attempt at selling industrial items and I realize I need to have my auctions end while people are still at work if I want to reach last minute bidders. My new target start time will be Tuesday evenings between 4- 4:30 PM Eastern Time.

bahumbug:-p
did i spell that correctly

I start my 7 day auctions between 9PM & Midnight Eastern Time so they end between 6PM & Midnight for everyone. (I only sell in the US.) I start auctions any day other than Friday & Saturday because I don't want to miss last minute bids from weekend partiers or religious observers.

I feel if you give the buyers the right product at a good price then there will not be any hindrance with your product sale.
