So in my first attempt at selling magic on ebay I sold the Roadrunner cull DVD for a dollar and four cents. You believe that? I didn't setting a price to start the bidding at so it set the default of 99 cents. Lets see if I can straiten things out for attempt number 2.

Lol, I've never used ebay (to sell, I've bought things). But I think I'd just put a "Buy Now" price and leave it at that. Or start the bidding at $10 or something...

When I just started using ebay I bidded on 5 different dreamcasts and won all 5 of the auctions, I was sure that there is some cancellation button somewhere that I'd be able to use when I win one of the auctions and don't need the others.
Eventually the sellers understood me and I only paid for one cast

This should be a thread about everyone's eBay/auction nightmares.

These are good.

I have sold and bought on ebay now for the last 6 years now. I have got some great magic tricks for way cheep and in return I have sold some for way cheep. Now on ebay you really have to be carefull. There are so many knock off's on the magic tricks you most likely will not get what you are paying for. Japen is relly bad for that. So be carefull. But what got me to stop selling is the prices thay charge you now to put up something to bid and even after you sell it thay get more. Are way to high. and the fact that I sold something for like 250.00 and the guy said he never got it. I even had tracking but he saisd it was not with the rest of the things I sent him. Then I had to pay back the money and of course he got to keep what I did not send him. Lets put it this way it was from Wolfs magic. Piss me off. So no more ebay for me.

Yeah I put Buy Now, cause buyers like to bid low, and when you put Buy Now it doesn't give them that option :D
