something i want to buy on ebay - finishes in a couple of hours. only one bid - mine. but reserve not met. If i bid again - will it make a second bid? and if it is the reserve price or above will it show as me meeting reserve even if no one else bids??
do you get what I mean???

i generally try and guess the reserve.
If you bid above the reserve it goes to reserve met and not a penny over until someone else bids.

what he said you can bid as many times under the reserve as you like and it wont go up but if you ht the reserve it will go to that

it might be worth e-mailing the seller to see what the reserve is ?? x

And get the following response (or maybe it's just me....)

"Hi, thanks for asking for the reserve price but i's actually a state secret that cannot be revealed"

Or words to that effect. I REALLY don't know what's up with some sellers, do they WANT to sell their items or not?

already tried that - wanted me to make on offer for BIN which I did but he go an **** on cos I obviously didnt offer him the right amount - explained I didnt know anything about them and then got the 3rd degree about why i wanted it - its a bit for a car - mechanic friend said to try for a second hand one - which is what i was trying to do!!! still only a couple of hours to go. will see what happens then. Thanks for help!

totally agree - he really miffed me off big time with his interrogation!
after all i was just trying to get some idea - i didnt need all the sarcastic comments from him

id rather let someone know the reserve rather than let it go unsold.
Crazy people out there!

Ebay's a wierd little planet sometimes isn't it?


Sure is!

I try and be fair buying or selling on ebay and hope that everyone I deal with is the same.

Naive or what!!!

Thanks - Have upped my max bid but reserve still not met at £125 so may just leave it at that. He reconed loads of people had been in touch 'trying to pinch it' so be funny if its only my bid at the end!!! Fingers crossed! maybe he'll sell at highest bid then even if reserve not met. well we'll just have to wait and see

Unless of course he gets some random 'mate' to bid against me
