How to beat the reserve price if no counter bids

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

How would I beat the reserve price if there are no counter bids to drive the price up to my bid limit?

I think you would need to bid again, a little higher:idea:

Hi Sarelm2,

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

You have two options here:

 

1) Wait for someone else to bid higher than your bid then bid again.

2) Ask the seller to delete your bid as you want to bid a higher amount.

3) Ask the seller to delete the listing and relist again but this time put the listing price directly at the number he's happy to accept at and with no reserve because I find Reserve listings pointless because of this exact problem.

I, too, don't bother to bid on items which have reserve prices. If I want the item, I ask questions of the seller and see if he/she is prepared to meet my price. If not, tough takkie.

A reserve price makes no sense to me as that is one way to chase people away and go look for something else. Just list the damn item at the reserve price you want and let the bids run.
