Default Question on ebay

Has anyone ever just got fed up with selling BIN or BO and just hit the auction button on all your listings. I though about doing this just to see where it ends up. Just curious if anyone has did this for 500+ cards and how did you do if you have.

It depends on the card whether to use the BIN/BO or auction format. Hot card, new release, auction format. Otherwise, use the BIN/BO for higher end cards and make sure you use the auto decline/accept feature and set the price you are willing to accept.

Don't play games with the lowballers, just set the auto decline feature to level to start the negotiations.

I did it before with 500+ auctions and fared pretty well. You just don't get the amount of views that on BIN/BO's that you normally would for auctions. It was amazing just how much more interest there was than when the cards were sitting on BIN's. In fact, several cards went for more than what the BIN's were originally listed at.

I actually did the opposite; used to list everything as an auction but hate the whole waiting till the final day game, so started doing more BIN/BO. That has problems too of course, nothing is perfect.
