Default When is the Best Time to List on Ebay

Wanted to get your opinions: What day, and time of day, is the best time for an item to end on ebay to yield the most bids?

I was thinking the exact same thing. Thanks for the reassurance. Still, I guess there is no guarantee when something will sell for more than normal. You just have to luck up and post something just at the right time, when two or more people have a bidding battle back and forth. Several times, I have listed a card numerous times and not so much as had one bid, then I list it another time and it sells for a good bit just b/c the right people were looking at it.

It also depends on what you are selling. If, for instance, you are selling football cards, ending on Sunday afternoon and evening during the season is not a good time. I assume the same goes for baseball and basketball. I have also seen people say that Tuesday evening is good (maybe there is nothing good on TV). As for time, keep in mind the timezones, work schedules, etc. I usually try to end at 10 central, which puts it at 8 pacific.

IMO start it on thursday 8pm-9pm and run it for 10 days, you get two weekends on it where people are at their computers more. Put it in bold, use a subtitle, make it stand out from other listings that are similar to attract the most viewers which will result in more bidding

Also be sure to provide high quality pictures or scans of the front and back, I believe a lot of money is left on the table by some sellers who only show the front of the card. As a buyer, I want to see the back of the card to verify say a serial # and to check out the centering etc.

I agree, I think the most important feature is to have a good scan of the card.
