In the early days, if you were selling VERO you could list friday after 6pm and manually end it early monday before safehabour monkey would get in, but for the last 2-3 years now it is just the opposite. Best to list monday to thursday.

Thumbs down

A word about the start and finish of auctions you actually list!

Class Action Against eBay

Aug, 22, 2007: "A class action lawsuit alleges that eBay deceived customers whose auctions did not start when their listing was submitted and who paid for but did not receive the full duration of auction time that they selected.
"eBay has been deceiving millions of consumers over the years by claiming their auctions start when submitted, when in reality they do not begin for at least several hours, and up to 24 hours," said attorney John Fabry.

"However, the clock starts running on your selected auction time even though eBay hasn't posted it yet."

The suit focuses on violations of various provisions of California statutes intended to protect consumers, as well as common law.

The suit seeks injunctive relief and damages for the customers who make up the class. It is estimated that there are millions of eBay consumers that have been affected by eBay's course of conduct."

That class action suit explains why listings have been showing up immediately for the past month or so.

The Vero Items, they now mandate must be either 5 , 7 or 10 day- no more 1 day listing on Names.. So, I schedule mine to start Weds eve, run through Sunday eve..

Many different answers to the question you asked..personally i try to make listings end, mid evening.... 10 day listings....i think start Thurs, will get 2 weekend exposures... as regards the time Ebay takes to put a listing up, if you search by item number.. it will appear almost immediately... but you try listing a high value item...or brand name...Zippo for instance.. you can wait up to 24 hours for it to appear on normal search..

Default interesting?

10 day listings ..do they produce better? cost more yes?

I find a 7 day to only get hits after 5 days ..so I like 5 day listings the best starting tuesday and ending on Sunday .. IMO

HI- Have tried all the combinations over the years-- as the Reseacrh suggests- Ending on a Sunday Eve- is the best. Folks are at home, on their pcs..
FOr VERO type items- they will ONLY let you do a 5 day or 7 day or 10 day..NO MOre 1 day Rolex auctions...UNLESS of course you have the 10 fb, and its for a ROOLEX or a ROLEEX..... then it works!

the best times are 5 days for anything since 7 or 10 day listings will be waaaaaaaaaaaay at the back of the search someone does, and noone will bid or see them until the final days, so listing 7or10 u're just wasting time. (i think)
also, i just use Terapeak for every listing to see when is the best time/type of listing to list- Free research data: hot products & current trends.

That is true (for me anyhow)-- When I listed all 7 day auctions, acct was fine- once i got acct over 60 days + fedback over 10- then i got brave for the 1 day auctions , accts still up

HI- NO ONE Probably- BUt when You place it in the Correct Category- it will show up.. Watches/wristwatches/then brand from drop down specifics- Rolex.
Believe me.. they find it.. Other Variations for this Brand in your title is:
Oyster Perpetual box, Golden Swiss Crown Collection, SubmaRINER or Daytona (all without the actual word Rolex)--Try it- Place a listing - then do a search for the ACTUAL item.. it will show up.(i.e. Roolex box)-- then search for rolex box-- your item will show if in correct category-watches.

CRAP.. looks like I found out early. :(

The account was zero-feedback but a couple of days old already. So I guess don't try 3-day auctions right away. What I was selling was fairly expensive too, though, so that might have also played a part in it.

Yeah, not just a temporary suspension.. they booted me minutes after I'd posted my first auction. I'm pretty sure it's because I listed a 3-day. The stupid thing is, if eBay doesn't want noobs listing 3-day auctions then why do they even make the option available to them??

The heading was something about "Abusing eBay" but then somewhere in the body of the message it also talked about going against the spirit of our policies or whatever.
