Item Watch Top

Item watch notifies you when someone bids on the auctions that you have added to your Item Watch.

Why did I get outbid at the last second? Top
Bidding at the last second is common in all online auctions. Many bidders will wait until the last possible moment to place their bid in an effort to protect them from becoming involved in a (bidding war). We don't encourage last second bidding, or (sniping) for the sole reason that if your timing is off, or there is some type of delay in your information being sent through the Internet, your bid may not be placed before the item bidding time ends.
What is Buy-It-Now? Top

Buy-It-Now is an exciting optional enhancement to your listings. As a seller, if you choose to use the Buy-It-Now feature at the time of listing, you will be able to name a price at which you would be willing to sell your item to any buyer who meets your specified price. Your listing will be run as a normal auction, but will now feature a Buy-It-Now price. Buyers will have the option to buy your item instantly without waiting for the listing to end or can bid on your item as usual.
