Retro Game Collecting Tips – My Secret eBay Bidding Tips

in this retro game collecting tips video
I am going to share my eBay bidding tactics this will help you win those
retro-gaming auctions with ease my first tip would be once you’ve researched your
prices as I’ve shared with you guys in one of my previous retro game collecting
tips videos is to set the price you’re willing to pay and don’t touch nobody if
the auction happens to run away from the price you’re willing to pay leave it
alone and wait for the next one believe me it’s not worth paying over the odds
if you’re comfortable with the price that you’ve set for yourself so what you
need to do is keep an eye on the auctions that you’re targeting and if
they start getting ceiling just just move on and wait for the next one now
here’s something that I do if I find an auction that looks like it’s gonna be a
really really great bargain and I mean a really cheap for the title that I’m
trying to get I don’t watch it if there’s nobody watching it I don’t watch
it I do not become a watcher I keep looking
at it so it’s saved on my list on my eBay app as a recent item that I’ve
looked at so I can keep going into it but don’t become a watcher is very end
of any matter what happens and why do I do this well because if there’s
something that looks like it’s really cheap and nobody is watching it in
somebody else might be put off by the fact that there’s no Watchers whatever
you do do not be it until right at the end of the auction there is no point
putting a bit in with days or hours or even half an hour to go all you’re going
to do is you ramp up the price of the product $1,000,000 right so this is how
I bid this is how I win bids with auctions on
eBay I wait until the last minute of the auction watched the price if it ramps up
and it gets out of control I stay away if it doesn’t and it’s still within
my price range I will wait until her last 20 seconds and in the last 20
seconds I’ll keep looking at it just to see what happens and then at 12 seconds
I mean go into the bid I will put the figure in at 12 seconds that I want to
bid at my maximum that I’m not going to go over and then at 6 seconds I confirm
that bit so I put in my maximum price that I’m willing to pay for that game in
the condition that it’s in even if the price is a lot lower I will put in my
maximum value to widen the gap between the current auction bids and tomorrow
I’m willing to pay and within that six second period you should hopefully win
that auction as a sake of Mega Drive game then you want you’ve found that the
auction and you’re going to bet at the moment the price is around the 8 pound
mark but you’ve valued the game at 20 pounds what you’re going to do at 12
seconds is enter 20 pounds and then at 6 seconds you’re going to hit your bid
confirmation so if the price of the game is still around the 8 10 pound mark
you’ve wider than that get to 20 now what hopefully should happen should
happen most of the time is you’re going to pay less than the 20 pound because
people are trying to bid at the last minute and trying to catch up to the 20
pound so you might get it for like 15 you might even get it for Less
but this is what I do now I go six seconds because that seems to be safe
period where everything can work you want to be somewhere where you’ve got
good Wi-Fi you’re not out on 4G 4G can be good but you really want to have
decent Wi-Fi connections so always putting my final bid at the six second
mark I have pushed it before to four but when you get to four seconds sometimes
things can go a little bit crazy and your timing can be a little bit off
you’re reducing the limit have been able to successfully bid so I would say go
around the second mark and that’s how I do my eBay
bidding hey have you subscribed to the retro gamer – YouTube channel if you
