Default ebay shill bidding

Not sure if this is the right spot for this question and if not sorry. There is a card I am watching on ebay and the price jumped alot when I looked at the bids the person with the highest bid was at 22% bidding with the seller, my question is does 22% activity with one seller constitute shill bidding

For 22% I would say not necessarily. How much (if any) feedback does this person have?

No, not a chance. If I make 20 bids and 4 are on one card is that shilling? Thats essentially what you are asking.

But what if it's on the 1 bid on the item but 22% for the bidding on the seller

You still have to take total amount of bids made into consideration. At 22% I wouldn't worry about it to much.

If the bidder has made 5 bids and only one on this card that still registers at 20%.
