please suggest the pacific time
6-6:30PM pacific time. That way it's 9PM eastern. You're likely to catch people on the west coast that just got home before dinner and the people in the east coast after dinner.
I've not sold in ebay lately but that's when I closed mine when I did few years ago. I had good results.
I shoot for the same time as daveb. BUT I shoot for a weekend evening. Sat or Sunday. That way people are most likely at home and up late and have time to sit infront of their computer and get into a bidding war.
Between 4:30-6:30PM Pacific time on Sunday Nights.
the question is not when are the most people online, its when is the rate offers for your product to people online the most attractive.
when you list on "prime time" with 1.000 others you will get less out of it if you list at a "bad time" but you have nearly no other offers to "fight" with
Yeah, most of the bigger guys (and bigger means lower costs) target very specific times, so if you target the same times they do then its like you are standing against a wall shoulder to shoulder with your competition and then hoping buyers pick you. What I do is I list stuff to end at these times (because I'm big enough and can still profit from lower profit) and about 2-3 hours before these times, I scan my competition and undercut the lowest price by 1-2% - most people don't have someone to do this so I can usually snag most of the people who know how to search for the lowest cost item which usually turns out to be me.
As they say, if you aren't the cheapest, you aren't selling.
between 2-4pm PST because people get home around that time. Use Auctiva if u really need it.
"As they say, if you aren't the cheapest, you aren't selling."
well for excatly the same product this might correct (not in every case even here) but sometimes quality design and ratings are more important for buyers
I swear time doesn't make a difference. I had many auctions end at 6:00PM pacific do much worse than auctions that end 12PM pacific. So I just do one auction at 12PM and the other at 6PM everyday now.
mine is 8-10 saturday mornings
Nope. I've done enough testing to be comfortable in saying that people with higher feedback scores and really nicely designed listings will get just as many sales as someone with 70% positive feedback, less than ten feedback, and with a basic listing. eBay is very price focused, and often people do not even continue looking at products that cost a penny more, so visually they have nothing to compare it to.
When I sold, I usually did night times. Around 8PM EST or 5PM PST
