    I haven't yet bought items to sell on ebay but I sold items I owned and did not need anymore.

    I have always started at 1. For an old bike(being created by a good company though) the price went up to 28. Not satisfiying.

    Then I started at 14 for another product and got no bids at all - even though I let it end at the same time I let the bike end.

    My question is now. For which goods can I use a price above 1 and still get bids? When will a fixed price sell, how do I estimate which price to start at?

    Check the history of previous auctions and see what pricing they got. EBay has an area to do just that. I have found it useful in setting up my auctions.

    Not everything listed on Ebay will sell. As a matter of fact I think I read somewhere that they DON'T sell 80% of all listings.

    You want to do some competition research, etc. first, and I recommend using GoofBay:

    I doubt it because it's a very high porcentage, what do you think
