I feel a bit guilty, but I did list them at £9.99 with free postage!

Yep, Ebay is a strange place, people just get competitive and want to win - i've seen people bid way over what you can buy stuff new for as well
#2
probarbly paying so much as they are paying on a stolen card knowing ebay users!
#3
what makes me laugh is when £50 vouchers go for £50.03 plus £3 delivery - maybe they're onto something

I had a few porsche brochures a few years ago, they are more like hardback books to be fair and listed them on ebay and they sold from £5 - £15 not including a few quid postage and they were free from dealerships !!!

I will never understand some buyers!

yeah i've had that on a few occasions. where they have paid more than the retail price. but then a lot of situations in the opposite direction too of people buying things for so much less than i bought it for. Ebay is really unpredictable

I have had this happen too, things selling low that is, but I am happy to get shut of stuff I don't need anymore. I always sell on my DVDs as I never (can't) watch a movie twice :)

crazy!

I used to think what a great idea ebay was.. people selling off their junk for next to nothing so someone else can put a use to it... but in practice its one hell of a lot different!

its what makes ebay worth it, like starting a game at 1p and saying "grab a bargain its rrp £25" and then bidding goes over £30, its just insane

my daughter - then aged 7 - had me list all her "Animal Ark Books", mostly bought from car boots etc and the majority sold over the (new) RRP when she had paid an average of 20p for them - a ridiculous amount purchased by buyers in the USA. Good supplement to pocket money!!

I sold a table on eBay with a buy it now price of £50

Someone came along and bid £60 :whistling:

They even came to collect it

Weird.


Also, my auntie sold some knee high boots on eBay and when the winning bidder emailed her, he said he would pay more if she sent a photo with her legs in the boots.

Even weirder!

some people dont bother looking elsewhere, they truely believe ebay is the bees knees! believe it will be a bargain whatever the price or are new to the net maybe and not yet discovered amazon play etc?? lol

I agree, a lot of people just get caught up in the heat of the moment, especially if bidding madly at the end of an auction. You can see two identical items selling with minutes of each other but one can go for a drastically different amount to the other, simply because people are only watching that one and haven't bothered to look if there are any more on there, or elsewhere, cheaper.

lol, I bought a few of the special edition george best £5 notes, sold them for £15+ on ebay:)

Lol. At my work alot of make-up was discontinued so they sold it all at 50p each. I brought loads lol. I put 3 dream matte mousses up with are about £6.00 each (I paid 50p remember) and some dozy people bid it over £26.50 for the 3!!! Madness. Nice profit if you ask me :)
#19
I listed a tried on once bra (wrong size) starting at 99p and after a feverish bidding war I got £48 for it from a guy in Japan. Wasn't complaining but erm, what lol?! Don't feel guilty if you listed them at a fair starting price, its the resellers that try to sell hard to find stuff waaaay over RRP that are out of order.

I think some people want to spend their paypal balance rather than waiting a week for the bank transfer, some people want the cashback from quidco/topcashback and some people are just plain idiots! Then there are the bad people hacking accounts and wanting things to be sent to Nigeria.
Ebay is a crazy place full of crazy people.

I found a stupid seller today, i bought a dvd for £1.04 free del they only put a stamp on it so i was charged £1.30 by royal mail the seller had to refund that via paypal gift so out of pocket even before all the fees
#22
but by not paying the extra 30p on the postage they had a £1 charge from royal mail so whatever the reason £1 extra down on an item that sold for £1.04
