I. Buying on eBay > 3. Finding—and Getting—Bargains

Chapter 3. Finding—and Getting—Bargains

Spending money on eBay is a snap. What’s tricky is learning how to do it wisely.

Two things stand between you and smart shopping: more listings than you can shake a mouse at, and scads of eager bargain hunters. To get an edge, you have to search better than the competition, and you have to bid smarter. This chapter shows you how.

Here’s what it covers:

  • How to find the hidden bargains that other shoppers miss.

  • How to comparison-shop for the best deal.

  • How to avoid impulse buying (and the buyer’s remorse that goes with it).

  • How to snipe (win an auction at the last minute).

  • How to boost your odds of winning Dutch auctions.

  • How to find deals off eBay’s beaten path.
