    yep ive seen this. i think it's cause they get caught up and keep bidding.

    works out well for the seller.

    Alot of games. I was try to bid on a few and for e.g forza 3 ended up going for £23.

    Money laundering .....

    Stopped usin ebay for this reason

    i saw this the other day for an item i was looking at..

    The book on amazon for £3 cheaper inc delivery than what people were bidding @ on ebay!

    i think some people just dont realise they think everything is cheaper on ebay cos its normally second hand etc so they think they getting a bargain

    some people dont look i think they assume ebay will be cheaper?

    yep as numpty says lol

    Well only Amazon is cheaper than that.
    And i think a lot of buyers don't use price comparison sites or deal sites to become aware of the cheaper prices online.

    eBay is cheaper for a lot of things though.....i remember there was a lexmark all in one super printer in here, got a lot of heat @ £89.99...

    the same printer was on eBay new, from a company, not a private seller, @ £69.99 and he was selling like 70 a day!

    some people dont know about play and amazon ect they know about ebay and pay the price they think is worth it.... it's a shame but i can see it from their point of view too... i've paid a little extra sometimes so i can get it from a shop i can trust and have used before

    That deal is very very hot at a nice 8 degrees :thumbsup:

    many people have money in their paypal account from things they have sold on ebay so it is just easier to buy other things from ebay than move the money around,

    LOL! i couldn't find it, it was that printer thought, thats why i put it up.

    The best i have seen is a £10 top up for a phone, and it sells for £12+

    funny as

    Never heard of auction fever OP?

    Some people loose all common sense on ebay and in real auctions.

    The're also the same on play.com.

    A potential buyer sent me this nice message:

    Message:
    You're an idiot. The white edition was only worth £60 new, and you're sellin git for almost £100 'slightly damaged'?! FOOL!

    So I sent back:

    Yep,

    What's wrong with that, you buy it for £60 then if you can find it,
    Mine is the cheapest on play at time of listing, and others are selling it for way higher.

    It's only the box that is slightly squashed during transit, everything else is as new

    Have a nice day
    Regards.

    Ps. I'm not the idiot ;-) But your comment made me chuckle


    And guess what?............ I sold it this morning.
    I feel like e-mailing him again, but I ain't that way inclined:w00t::thumbsup:

    That is why my friends, we use the internet to our advantage!

    If you see it on on eBay, see if you can find it cheaper elsewhere.
    If you find it elsewhere, check on eBay.

    Compare everything!

    We have the power!

    i've seen this a few times with bikes,sell more secondhand than new,
    they must just get carried away or put in a high bid as there highest not thinking it would go that high and the seller intertrading:?:
    :thumbsup:

    Makes me laugh when they are bidding but someone is selling it buy it now for alot cheaper!

    I bought a barrel BBQ for £70 in focus, used it for 2 years then sold it on ebay for £140. couldnt believe it. they were still selling them for £70 instore.

    i always smile when people bid on vouchers and get it for like £19.50 for a £20 gift card + £2postage WTF:?

    Lol! we sold our old Sky+ box on ebay when we upgraded to Sky+HD a few years ago.

    We paid £49 for the hd box and sold the Sky+ box for £150!

    The funny thing was the sky+ boxes were only £99 at the time anyway!
