    I'm trying to figure out what are appropriate views from organic people before a buy happens.
    I just posted some stuff and I'm getting about 150 views but no buyers.

    I really dont think theres anything even like an average, Ive had 10 views and had a bidding war, and over 500 views and just a couple of bids. Views are a completely irrelevant stat in my eyes, not worth even paying attention to.

    We used to sell collectible toys, and there never seemed to be a standard formula for views translating to bids. 95% of the bids came in the last 5 minutes of the auction, and I'm sure there was a buyer hitting refresh every 20 seconds during some auctions.

    If you are getting a lot of views but no buys it usually means your prices are too high..if you are doing auctions then maybe your starting bid is too high for some people or you are not providing lots of info

    I would look at using Auctavia to enhance your listings etc..they are free for 30 days (so good for 1 month worth of listings) and they can provide powerful tools to make your listings look that little bit more smexy
