Chapter 16. Dealing with Problems > Relisting Unsold Items

Relisting Unsold Items

As you'll soon find out, not every item up for auction on eBay sells. In fact, the success rate is close to 50%—which means that it's possible that half your auctions will end with no buyers. If you reach the end of an auction and you haven't received any bids—or you haven't received high-enough bids in a reserve auction—you can easily relist the item in a follow-up auction. In fact, you can relist items with no additional insertion fee, if the following conditions are met:

  • You didn't receive any bids on a regular (no-reserve) auction.

  • For a reserve price auction, you didn't receive any bids that met or exceeded your reserve price.

  • You are relisting an item within 30 days of the closing date of the first auction.

  • If you're relisting a reserve price auction, the new reserve price is the same or lower than the original reserve price.
