Great feeling of adrenalin rush when I've won something - so childish.
But don't we all do it, l like it better in the last few minutes to see who wins, great fun.
The people who are new, no feedback and then win and don't buy, its all too much like hard work.
I know we all have to start somewhere and have to trust bidders, but I've been stung a few times and had to relist.
You have now to look carefully at postage costs, sometimes it works out just about two quid cheaper than a shop, if thats the case, then I will buy new rather than carry on bidding.
we used to win bids at the last minuet, but people now know that trick, and we used to use hammerbid tool for the last few seconds, cheating I know!
But now with the postage costs, sometimes ebay is not worth it anymore. To much hassle just to save a few quid, unless its something worth winning of course then its different.
We used ebay when we got married, this saved us a fortune, from the clothes to the decorations, it was the only way I could afford a nice white dress!
Tell me about shoes - Ive still got 3 pairs (new) that I can't sell, can't even give them away as I don't know anyone local they would fit.
But I still enjoy Ebaying, its a great pastime, I just wish I knew what I could make a steady income on.

I put the clear pictures of every fault and damage, so that people would see what they were bidding for. You can imagine my surprise when they sold for £30, until of course realising that by using "my old shoes" and "bit dirty" in the title I appealed to certain ebay buyers with certain taste. Looking at the previous purchases of the winning bidder was enough. Other bidders asked if I had any other shoes like that.
