we as bidders determine the price that an item goes for .
by trying to always have the highest bid or to keep out bidding others all your doing is bumping the price up yourselves !
we all come to ebay to bag a bargain , why make everything so expensive .
do some research and know your prices , never pay for an item on ebay that you can get for the same price in a shop , because you then have to add the postage costs .
instead of bidding to get the item in your watch list , just click on the " put in my watch list " link .
pick a price and stick to it , bid in the last minute, make the bid for the maximum amount your willing to pay , even if the bid is low , as the person who has the winning bid might have a high bid on it .....sometimes you win and sometimes you loose , but it all the fun of it .
happy bidding !
