Winning a bid on E-Bay is very simple actually. You can get 40-60% off any items that you bid on, instead of buying. You just need to be aware of the time, and day in order to get what you want.
Searching: Always search in terms of lowest price, bid, and the actual bid itself so that way you can get the best deal in case you do decide to bid on your item.
Look at shipping: Before diving into a bid, you need to take a look at the shipping costs. You wouldnâ€™t want to buy something that cost $10 and the shipping is $40 or something ridiculous. Also, be sure that your item is close by and not all the way in China or the North Pole for that matter.
Ending Soon: Look for items based on most recent bids that are ending the soonest! This will give you a clue how much your item will cost at the very end of the bid and also give you an idea of how many people are competing for this certain item.
Last Minute: Bidding at the very last minute is the number one trick to winning your item. Also, when you bid at the last minute, make sure you bid in increments in $5 instead of one. Just in case another bidder has bid at the same time you did, you will get the win since they bid lower. There are many people who bid at the last minute and only bid up to one dollar over which wonâ€™t really help.
