Default 3 Day Listings on eBay. Good idea or not?

My apologies if subject was discussed at length already. I am wondering what community thinks about using 3 Day Listings on eBay in general.

1. Do you sell more with 3 Day Listings?

2. Does eBay look closer at your account if you this particular format?

3. Any (besides Vero) items are that big No-No for 3 Days listings?

4. Is there any particular proportion of 3 Day Listings to other ones that works better for you?

Sincerely appreciate any and all insight.

Same here. I only do BIN/BO in general, but switching from 30 day to 3 has increased sales.
You figure, a lot of people might just browse the category looking for soonest ending... that 30 day item will never show up to them.

I use combo of 3 day, 5 day, 7 day listings - I find that the time of listing is big for me. I don't deal with Vero or particular hot items however.

Hot items in a nitch market can cause issues, sell as fast as possibly is my moto. Three day BIN gets better search results and sells faster as a general rule.

On BIN and not hot items is it better to do 5/7 days listing even if you only sell 4/5 month or better GTC so you can keep getting sales history on that listing which should improve search results as time goes on? And also save on listing fees, I usually do GTC on those type of items

I sell collectibles and I only use 3 and 5 day auctions......7 days feeling like forever. I slowly experimented with 3 days, and low and behold, they did every bit as good as my 5 days! So, nowadays, I don about 75% 3 day and the other in 5 days.

I agree and if you have great visibility(every account seems to be throttled) one day auctions. Anything more than three wastes time. I only use five day listing when I am listing on Tuesday and want the item to end Sunday night.

hi
the idea of ebay or any other form of trying to sell is to sell. a 30 day listing is the same as a 3 day listing if no sale.
what items are you selling that you cant move i might be able to give you help.

thanks

I think 3 days listing is better for me. It sells for about same price as 7 days auctions. I deal with VERO.

Big risk with VeRo.

Suppose that's why you need more accounts.

This is what I do. I do this to space my listings out so they show on various different pages, thus yielding more visibility.

I would do 1 day but I don't have that option. Need to research when I should expect this to start.
