14 replies
Found 18th May 2010
Hi guys and girls,

Am trying to sell something on eBay and everytime I press 'continue' after filling in everything it says

'please enter a minimum reserve price of £xxx'

The £xxx that its telling me to put is the same amount that I actually put in for my reserve price.

Really really doing my head in so if anybody could help Id very much appreciate it. Rep for helpful comments.

Thanks

Jim

I think the minimum reserve is £50... Are you over that?

there's two things, starting price and reserve price, i don't think you put a start price in if you have a reserve price.

You sure? If thats the case then theres no point in me putting a reserve because the item Im selling is only worth about £30!

You do put a start price as well as a reserve... otherwise people won't be able to bid!! Unless you're putting more than £50 in the reserve box, it won't let you do it.

what is? he cant put a reserve in - lol

i meant putting a start price as the reserve price is cheaper because its a fixed rate and not 2% of the reserve.

or do what everyone else does, start it at 99p (free listing) and shill bid it to your reserve :thumbsup:

dont know why ebay cant let you place a reserve less than £50, it would avoid a lot of the above...
