Best Ways to Bid on eBay


Automatic Bidding

Automatic bidding is the easiest way to bid in an eBay auction. Enter the highest price you are willing to pay for an item, and eBay will do the rest. Once you set up automatic bidding, you can stay ahead of an item's competition without ever needing to be on the eBay site.

To set up automatic bidding on an auction listing, enter the maximum amount you would like to pay for the item and select Bid. eBay will bid in increments on your behalf to keep you ahead, but only up to your limit.

We will let you know if someone exceeds your bid, and you can decide if you want to increase your maximum limit. When deciding the maximum amount you want to pay, keep in mind that you will also need to pay the shipping cost.

Know when the auction is ending

If the auction is going to end in seven days, then try to bid on the seventh day. This is one of the best ways to bid on eBay as you are not increasing the price of the item by bidding at the start and you can easily bid your price just a few minutes before the auction is ending and buy the item.

Don’t bid more than it is valued

This might seem obvious, but I have seen many people not doing it. Search for the item you are bidding for on other websites. Know its value and don’t bid for it if it looks overvalued. You can buy the same item from a different seller easily.
