Hi guys,
I have 40 items that i've listed on auctions and i chose Sunday as the day that they will all end, Here's the thing :

1.Do you think listings all products to end at the same day in different hours is the right way to go ,or maybe split it to 3 days a week ?

2.Some of my listings have similar items , Is it good to list similar items together?

thank you

sunday has always been the best day for me too, though i try not to have more than 3 or 4 of the same item to end on the same day. but thats with what i sell and would probably depend on the product and how high the auctions usually go. best way to find out how to list your items is just trial and error. after sunday you'll have a better idea of what works for you and what doesn't. and make any changes you think might work better the next time around

Best time to list is when most people are all home together, and stats show that is a Sunday evening around dinner time.

I tend to list just prior to dinner at around 4.30 or at around 7.30pm, just after dinner. I choose those times to try and hit when all the ducks are in a line.

Most of the family would be at home by 4.30, but you don't want tom wait to prime time on the tube to get in the way of someone's memory.........TV will usually win : )

I suggest you end before or after dinner, but never at 6.00. Chances are that is pretty much spot on dinner, and that will hurt you.

For multiple items, I suggest listing at 1 or 2 minutes apart. If you have the same customer wanting to buy two or more of your items, ending them at the same time is making it hard for them, but ending them close is making it easy for them.

Always think what will make it easier for a customer to buy my items, hard to go to far wrong from there.
