Default When do you go on eBay?

I read a interesting discussion on the powerseller forum about the importance of the ending time on auctions. I try to avoid listing auctions late at night, but other than that I've listed **** at all hours of the day, every day of the week.

What days/times are you more prone to browsing or buying on eBay?

Mon-Fri ~8AM-5PM.

I'm actually totally serious. I browse when I'm bored at work and away from the wife. If its a good deal, I buy it and am left with at least 30 minutes while I drive to pick her up to come up with a good explaination.

Only when I need to buy something, or do a general pricecheck on something I already own

But I do like it when auctions end during weekdays in the evening. It's never good news for me if the auction ends at midnight on a saturday night. It only means beer will be involved in my bidding decisions lol.

And they said the best time to end was????

I always tried to end mine on a Saturday evening but I don't know if that is the best now. I'm thinking lunch time on a Mon-Fri

Not much anymore, only when I am bored out of my mind. Too much junk and garbage on that shithole and eGay does nothing about the seller with 65 listings of one item/spamming or the $300 shipping on a 2lb part to avoid fees.

I use esnipe.com for bidding. Pretty easy/cheap/good if you are lazy like me. I looked at it the other day when I needed another network switch. It showed I hadn't bought anything from Ebay for the past 6 months.

Most of them said the best time to end them is on Sunday night or Monday night.

I'm going to fool around with some different ending times and see what kind activity they get toward the end.

They're working on this little by little. Starting by any seller with duplicate listings is having all but one removed automatically. It helped some, but there's still ways around it by changing the title just a bit.

Those guys suck and can really **** up searches by spamming 300 of the same item. Thankfully though they are slowly becoming less and less.

Afternoons and evenings for me. Mostly evenings.

Auctions that end at 2am are only slightly worse than ones that end in the morning. I never remember to check those.
