Not before time! Thats a hell of a long time to be off. Its only inconvenienced me a bit, but if youve got a business depending on Sky communications it must have been a nightmare. Cant be funny for those selling on Ebay , a real loss of last minute bids will mean lots of items being sold for the original starting price !! maybe even 99p
Would be nice to get a 99p bargain but doesn't happen that often. You shouldn't really start bids at 99p if your not prepared to let it go for that price. The only benefit I see is that it will throw your auction near the top of the list if someone does a search by lowest price first.
I play a bit of a game occasionally on ebay by just throwing on my highest bid from the start --if I win great if I don't ive helped push the price up for the seller--win win.
