Hi All,

I don't often sell things on Ebay - a question to those who do.

Roughly how many Watchers do you expect on an auction? Anyone any idea?

Any answers appreciated.

Cheers,
Malcolm

hey malc!

well it depends on what the item is. i generally have 0-5 watchers regularly on like common things, but then the rarer they are or in demand ones, the number can go up.

a fair while back, i sold a jade hare and had 46 watchers on it at one point.

your ST1 i would imagine to have 50+ :)

Well since this is brought up..when you select things to watch, does it send you emails similiar to those for items you have bid on early?

Yes, Ebay E-mails you about 4 hours prior to the auction end on watched items.


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

Hmmm, I must have the emails turned off, since I don't get notifications for when my watched items are about to expire, except when I log into eBay and see the red warning at the top of My eBay saying just that.

I might not forget to bid so often if the emails came regularly ;-)

The number of watchers is a direct relation on how rare or populare an item is. Also, the more watchers, the more activity you can expect at the closing of the item - snipers, that is. You will also get guys watching an item just to see how it prices out.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Hiya,

I saw this peak at 80 watchers - tho I wasnt around for the final day of the auction, so I guess there could have been more.

Cheers,
Malcolm
