    Default Dumb eBay question....


    0 Not allowed!
    Be kind. I am not an eBay user. The last time I made a purchase was 2004.

    If I want to win a bid - and don't have time to sit at the computer with my finger hovering over the keys at the 11th hour...I realize that I can place a larger bid earlier on and that they will take incremental bids from that amount.

    But then what happens if I win it? Do I only get charged the final amount and that's what they take from the large bid amount?

    Am I making sense?

    So if I want to win an item that ends up going for $2...and to ensure that I win I give a max. bid of $10...do they only charge me $2? Or do they end up taking the entire $10? I don't want to overspend.

    If you win a bid at $10, you'll own the seller $10. Think of it just like you would a auction

    I've only used E-bay a few times in the past 2 years, but if I am remembering correctly once you win a bid you will have a certain length of time to pay for the item you just won/purchased. The seller won't ship until you pay. If the length of time to pay passes without you paying, I believe the sale is canceled and you get a very bad rating as a purchaser or some other bad E-bay thing happens to you on the site.
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    No...I get that part...but you can place a larger bid amount (on reserve) to ensure you win...I need to know if they only take what the item eventually sells for...or if they take the entire amount you put in.

    I think what Rue is asking, is if you place your maximum bid, then ebay will bid for you. You don't have to pay your maximum bid if you win with less.

    Yes! That's what I was asking! LOL...I just don't know the eBay jargon...

    Thanks. I didn't want to spend the $10 if I won the bid for $2...

    If you placed a 50$ bid on a 2$ item, ebay will auto bid the min increment for you until it hits your limit of 50$. If that item end at say 11.25$ you will owe 11.25 and not the 50$ you put as your max.

    Thank you. I feel more confident now. I want to buy a few inexpensive items and have the seller package them together for me to save on shipping fees...but for that to work I need to ensure I actually win the items! :D
