Will you get more bids and make more money if your auction closes at a certain time?
The long-held conviction was that Sunday evenings were the best time to start–and end a 7-day eBay auction.
More people were at home. More were online. More had time willing to spend bidding and re-bidding on sports cards or sports memorabilia they wanted. Some disagreed, but the general belief seemed to be fairly universal. The worst night? Wednesday.
Other said you shouldn’t start and end items very late at night or early in the morning. Too few bidders was the common thought process.
But with sniping software, more methods for tracking items and perhaps most importantly, some lifestyle changes, maybe those old ideas aren’t true anymore.
