I am really starting to get into my computer I know a little late I have bought a few things from Ebay and so for so good bit my question is how can someone sell something for $2 and FREE SHIPPING when at store it is $60 and most other sellers on Ebay sell it for $30 no reserve and feedback 100% from over 1,000 people. Should I be worried about bidding? I sure this topic had been discussed before bit I am not sure what to do? Happy bidding!

Usually the actions that start this low are well researched and the seller knows they will be bid up quite a bit. they rarey actually sell for $2 but they start at the top of the list because they are so cheap, and then get bid up faster because there are more people bidding on them.

Some people believe that by starting items at very low prices it will attract more bids, it is a risk they take, I know I have won many great low bids and that is good for me, in fact I must be honest sometimes I have felt guilty some of things I have bought so cheap....
