Buying on Ebay is fun for both newbies, who are just getting started and seasoned Ebay buyers alike. Being new to Ebay though, you might initially find yourself losing out those auctions as a buyer, and wondering what the seasoned buyers are up-to.

If you enter your maximum bid in the first instance you can forget about the auction until it ends. However, on the downside bidding early on an item unfortunately can drive up the auction price as it shows there is an interest in the item. Bids attract bids and low prices attract bids! When potential buyers are looking through the listings, auctions that have 8 bids get more attention than auctions with 1 or none. When bidding on an item, you should bid the highest amount you are willing to pay. Ebay places the bid in increments so you may not actually have to pay the highest amount.

Bidding in the last few moments of an auction is known as 'sniping'. This practice is frowned up by some eBayers but it is perfectly legitimate and within the rules; the highest bid always wins, no matter how late it is entered.
