2. Be competitive

You want a good price for your item, but you also don’t want it hanging about. Price low, in the hope that the perfect eBay condition will start – 2 people who really want your item – they will drive the price up. After all who wants to lose out eh? eBay used to call it winning an item – they want buyers to be competitive. Set your price just below that of your competitors.
