How to Time and Price Your Ebay Listing

We have already learned quite a bit in our Ebay series…. Time to see how easy it can be to time and price your ebay listing!

Mpire… That is all you need to know. Start at MPire and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click on the little link that says “researcher”. Create an account.

Now you can search to find the ebay selling and timing details of whatever your heart desires! Do you want to sell a camera – type it in the box and it will tell you what start time reaps the highest profit. On the flip side, if you are looking to buy something then Mpire can tell you what sell time reaps the best deal 🙂

Use this information to schedule your listing through Auctiva. Scheduling a listing is free through them.

Personally, I think you should always start a listing at $0.99. The ebay listing fees are lowest this way and you will get the highest number of watchers, which means there is a higher chance that there will be a bidding war at the end. But, if you do not want to do that then MPire will at least give you an idea as to what your item is worth.

I cannot find researcher anywhere on mpire. Have they moved it or is there another way to get this service? Thanks!

Like sopht, I cannot find the "researcher" option on Mpire. Everything seems to be about online ads, which I can see being connected to the services you talk about, but there's no way to get there from here, it seems. Help! 🙂
