Ebay selling - start price high or low ?

Recommended Posts

If you're selling on Ebay do you take a risk and ask a low starting price and calculate it will reach it's expected value at the end of the auction or do you start with a high price just in case it doesn't ?

Always start mine at 99p...usually reach what they are worth.......now and again miss out a bit but swings and roundabouts.Always amazed when I check completed listings of those that put ridiculous prices on...........row after row unsold again and again.How do You motivate Yourself to keep listing?Madness

Personally, I think that common records should be listed at the minimum you want for them, I've had a few at 99p. In demand/rare records will always find their price on an auction no matter what you start them at.

the thing about eBay is that you are trying to find a buyer in 7 days, so records can go for wildly different prices. I've listed things that don't sell and just re-listed them at the same price to see them take off sometimes on the 3rd listing.

no point trying to second guess ebay
