    9pm long as its not on a fri/sat, thats if people still you use ebay

    about 5 o clock tea time try and put it on so it ends on a week end when nobody is at work

    I like to list on tuesday at about 14.00pm.
    For 5 days so ends sunday.
    Then i can post out first thing monday.

    all depends on what you are trying to sell. kiddy stuff sells quite well in the evening from abt 8-10pm end times same for computery stuff games etc, clothes tend to sell well ending lunch time 12-2 during the day, dont end stuff at weekend evenings i dont tend to like doing that. best day is to list for 10 days with the item ending on a monday to thursday.

    if that fails then look thru the completed listings for the category of stuff you want to sell (ie toys) pick a couple of the item you want to sell and search for them then check out the ones that ended for the highest prices and see what day & time they ended.

    Best time is Thurs eve on a 10 day listing coz it then runs over 2 weekends and finishes on a Sunday evening. Make sure there isn't something big on TV around the finish time that would take your target audience.

    I have no choice, eBay gives me a bigger number of potential buyers.

    Yeah, what I'm selling is none of those things though, thats why I'm a bit confused. And it hasn't been sold before on eBay! Thanks though!

    Excellent, thanks!

    I have found things ending in the day finish with no more bids if any, Around 9.30 at night I have had bidding wars on things as long as there is no big game on tv.

    some top advice here. planning to ebay a couple of belongings soon.. .. never used the sale / trade on here. .. quite scared to, to be honest.
    Would be kewl if we could make some threads a sticky.

    Thank you.
