See item 461799909

Either my maths is bad or something is not right here.

BRAND NEW !!! Super Bright 126W LED Spot Light - Brackets Included!

16 were available (min. 2 per order) / New
 
So if 16 were available, how is it that the auction was won with 6 sold what happened to the other 10???

Possibly the other were bought using a Buy now option ?

Hi imaan,

Not only this, previous sold auctions were also showing the qty 16 were available and  sold 6 pcs. I am equally puzzled now on whats happening ?

Answer from BOB

Actual vs sold

Good day Imraan.

 

Thank you for your email.

In a multiple quantity auction, there has to be a bid on each single item for the increment to kick in. On this auction the highest quantity bid was for 6 and every one who placed a bid was for less than a quantity of 4, this means all bidders were fighting out of the 6.

Still doesn't make sense.

If what they say is correct, then there mustn't be any runner up

I found the reason why it shows 16 - through another auction.

 

The Seller originally listed 6 items for sale..  When you were bidding it must have shown 6 items.

After the auction ended the seller offered 10 more of same item on personal offer to make a total of 16.
