    Re: Ebay

    If i just watch an item it goes for peanuts.

    Once i bid it goes crazy.

    I enjoy the bid battle but it is a joke that people can freely use snipes. Ruins the fun.

    Re: Ebay

    I sometimes, when bored, put in very low bids for stuff (golf) that I don't actually need but would be cool to buy for a stupid price. Never won anything this way as yet. There's far too many people on the bay now.

    I am ashamed to say I have pushed up bids on items that I don't actually want just for the fun of it. I have come very close to winning stuff I dont want. Purely experimental. I would like to apologise to those that bought the item where I have artificially inflated the price just for the hell of it. If you bid early you leave yourself exposed to people like me bored and seeking mischief

    Re: Ebay

    Alternatively, you can sell a club on there by best offer and receive no payment. You send a payment reminder 2 days later and get a message saying that because I don’t accept returns, they are no longer interested and won’t be purchasing the club.

    Time wasters

    You have to now. Don't or very rarely sell on ebay now as a few donkeys spoil it for everyone. I've had a couple of things returned that have been used. All you need to say is that is doesn't match the description and ebay ALWAYS side with the purchaser.

    Its laughable that people put 'I don't accept returns' in their listing as if it means something - utter waste of time. You will have no choice if the buyer decides so

    I don’t like bidding wars. I have bought a lot of clubs on eBay over the years, but I only ever buy “buy it now” items.
