This guide will give you a quick insight to successfully winning an item in auction.
First of all plan ahead.
Find out how much you are willing to pay for the item, most people at the last second get a rush of confusion leading to slow reactions when another opponent makes a bid. If you know how much you are going to pay you will have a clear head and will be able to make quick, fast decision.
The last 20 seconds.
In almost any auction the item is always won in the last minute. An easy effective way of entering the winning bid is to wait until the last 20 seconds then submit a bid a great deal higher than everyone elses. Other Ebayers will be trying to snatch a bargain at the lowest price and they will only be entering small amounts, by you making a large big the other bidders will have no chance of increasing the offer before the auction ends.
Hope this has helped,
