are they going for less than similar or the same cards are going for? what time are your auctions ending and on what days?

I usually do 24 hour auctions ending between 5-9 PM. I'm not getting any bids at all on some cards that go for higher.

you need to have them on longer than just 24 hours, that your main thing. go 5-7 days and have them around 9 to 10 eastern time.

You actually may consider having your auctions end much later remember west coast is 3 hours behind east coast.When I do auctions I end them at 3am PST.You can schedule start time and ending times as well

This is very good advice. Not only this, but I've noticed a huge portion of my buyers are from the west coast.

You may also want to make a strategy depending on the card. If I have a autographed Patrick Willis, I know that this card would attract attention from the west coast, so I set it to be convenient for west coast bidders, by making end times around when I think west coast buyers will be most active.


Hope this helps!
