Particularly when you are sitting on computers on either side of a room in an ICT lesson. And she beats you. :mad: Not amused.

no. The point was that the item went for a very low price- £36, but its worth over £100, seriously, that's why I'm so annoyed.

sultank, when ebayers send you a message, but hide their email address, can you just press reply on, for example hotmail, and it replies back to the ebayer. Because usually I just click on respond to ebayer, but for some reason ebay have restricted my email allowance!?!?!?

Ebay Rocks :rock:

The trick is not to bid until the last 20/30 seconds of the auction, then whack in the highest you're prepared to pay.

If you bid before that, you're just shooting yourself in the foot.

Haha yeah, I've been selling phones at £24 each (brand new), and put a nearly new one on at 99p (same model). It bid up to £31. Thought the guy wasn't going to pay but he did!
