    Have i just shot myself in the foot????

    Ok iv put up a pair of football boots for sale, the adidas supernova 2. they were brought out in about 2003 i think. so, iv put them on ebay for £50 buy it now, and this guy/company just messaged me offering me £40. well...
    iv just looked at the company that has offered me the money (dubai-diamonds) and basically they sell old football boots that are rare but popular. iv looked and they have like the Adidas predator mania (possibly the best looking boots ever made) set at £250 buy it now.

    have i cocked up here with my pricing????

    to be fair there is quite a bit of interest in boots second hand. ill just withdraw the item and clean them up a bit better tonight lol. i think i could at least double my asking price. they are pretty rare ones.

    i would say you've cocked up a little as I see you've now got a reserve but still got a BIN of £65, yet there's only 6 pairs listed on ebay, 3 at £130, yours at £65, another pair at £70, and a set still running on an auction listing.

    I would have pitched my BIN at £100 (i.e. undercutting the moer expensive ones which are brand new), set a reserve at say £70 (the same as the other pair on BIN) and started your auction low at around £10.

    definately clean them up more and take a better photo though, get them as clean (and re-blacked) as possible and then photograph them on a plain white background like the other listings, that way people will judge your listing more on price rather than discounting it for looking used etc in the photo.
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe
