EBAY HELP

Well I'm selling a game and wanted to know the best time to leave it on for?

depends how popular it is, if its an xbox or PS3 game id say 3 days, as they normally generate a lot of interest in the last couple of days.

Although i sold about 8 xbox games in 1 day auctions all did surprisingly well.

Its all about personal preferance imo.

I always finish my auctions on sunday evenings when there are the most users online so it might be a good idea to go for 7 days in that respect.

3 Days is usually best. as it's a good ratio between interest gained:time consumption
i've done ones like 9 day auctions before and the interest is the same as a 3 or 1 day as nobody seems to bid until the last 5 minutes anyway lol

ok whats the game is it for the ps3 , xbox , ds ?

I agree, 3days... 5 at most :-)

You should work out on what day the Auction ends.
Always best to have your Auction end on Weekend or Evening. I read somewhere 3X more people see your auction finish on a Sun afternoon than any other time.

ie if listing on Thur, but on for 3 or 10 days, listing on Sunday put on for 7 days.

(Sorry Leecher, just saw you already said that!)

Mines 0 fees :-D Just got the paypal fees which i'm not that bothered about, plus I get no interest here so I thought i'd try ebay for once.

There would be 0 fees for listing it yes.
But Ebay (the money grabbing who**s) charge a 10% off your final value fee
That's why it's better posting here usually
