Try to avoid checking out the sorting method “Time Ending Soonest” first in your item searches. You will feel less pressure to bid in haste if you check out the “Newly Listed” items first. Sometimes you can find some great (buy it now) deals that you would normally miss by getting caught up in some emotionally charged, last moment bidding war. You want to be in this for the long haul and the wait period gives you time to change your mind on any potential bids that you may want to make.
Disregard this tip if you live for that sort of last second action. It takes all kinds and I even enjoy a bout or two every now and then… but I always make a “hard deck” that I won’t fly below when bidding.
Happy buying and bidding my friends.
