This morning I was expecting tha last moments of an auction, it was a set of cds and it had only one offer. Its price was very low and I really wanted to buy that and when time was going out I did my offer but ebay site was blocked and my offer did not reach the server so I lost the item :-( Too bad how it happened... I'm still angry for that aaaaaarrrgghhhhhhhh.

Not sure how you were blocked unless it was really close to the end. It is best to bid you highest amount you are willing to pay for the item and let it work itself out. I like the buy it now section better. We do win some and lose some on Ebay, the nature of auctions. Better luck next time my friend!!

Yes, it was really close to the end. It never happened such a thing to me before. I think bidding the highest amount I want to pay causes price to grow up...

eBay banner - funny eBay banner
Unfortunately this has happened to me too, and I learnt the lesson from it and now I try to bid up my final maximum bid around 15 minutes before the end of auction. However, there have been problems with eBay site going wrong on occasions, this is one of those things we have to accept but it doesn't make it any easier to get on with. Keep an eye out for another set of cd's there could well be more around.

Thanks for the advice, I'll do the same thing...I never wait until last minute anymore. I don't think there will be such a great set of cds at that price :-(

ugh - I've lost out a couple times on auction bids myself. It is frustrating especially when it looks like you are the only one interested and then WHAM somebody else sneaks in that at the last minute, or else like you you can't get back in on time and you lose out. Hopefully you'll be able to find the again in another auction.

The first time someone offered in the last minute was for an electric guitar and it was frustrating so I learnt from that situation... but I could never imagine that ebay site wouldn't have let me enter my offer... indeed I entered my offer but ebay site didn't received it :-(

sorry to hear that layney, my boyfriend bid on something the other day and the last minute someone outbid him that only bid on two things ever on ebay, he was so mad, but lo and behold the guy didn't pay for the item or get ahold of the seller so he sent my boyfriend and email and offered him a buy it now deal and he got his item...This seems to happen alot when bidding on ebay...I just recently started selling on ebay and some days I just have to laugh at some of the stuff that goes on on that site...good luck hun.
