We're aware of reports that some sellers are charging unfair or unreasonable prices for certain items on eBay. We encourage our community to report any listings they suspect of unfair pricing to us. See our page on Reporting price gouging on eBay for more information and details on how to start a report.
If you place a bid that's below the reserve price, you'll see a "Reserve not met" message. This means that even if you're the highest bidder at the end of the auction, you won't win the vehicle.
Sellers on eBay.com.au can only add reserve prices to listings in Motors categories.
Sellers can lower their reserve price during the auction, or make a Second Chance Offer once it's ended. This means you may still have a chance to buy the vehicle – we'll send you a message if either of these happen.
Sellers don't have to reveal what they've set as the reserve price. Unless they state their reserve price in the listing, you won't know what the reserve price is until you meet it, or bid above it.
