I've decided to buy my first item off ebay and was wondering if anyone else has bought much stuff off there before?
I'm currently competing with 1 other bidder and he seems pretty keen- he's upped the price fairly substantially... The question is, is it best to leave your bid until the last hour or so before the auction finishes? That way you could sneak in your bid right before the auction ends...and make the other bidder(s) think you aren't interested.
eBay is pretty good these days - I've bought and sold abotu a dozen things on it.
Just read all the feebback about the buyer, and do lots of research about the item you are buying price wise. Go visit shops and have a good troll thru the online stores to get a good idea of what a good price is.
If there are other similar items up for sale watch them to see how they go.
A lot of people pay too much for stuff on eBay because they think "oooh it's on eBay, it must be cheaper" - for new stuff it quite often isn't.
But I've had a good run out of the stuff I bought which has included things like an SLR Camera and a couple of lenses.
