sunday night and monday night are the best nights imo, msot people are browsing on sunday night so will see your item them, then bid there and then or the sunday, or monday. id say between 7 and 9 are the best times

True, also depends what you're selling. If your aiming at students dont have stuff ending monday night etc cause they're all out. Stuff ending is day is sometimes better.
Teatime is the worst time, people driving home, eating their tea, late back from work etc - no-ones worrying bout ebay then.

Now that ebay.co.uk listings don't show up on ebay.com (I think that is the case) does everyone list stuff via ebay.com?

well some people do, but there is an issue with this, the fact that .com items dont show up on .co.uk, so if uk buyers arent searching on .com or dotn have their search set to worldwide, which it isnt by default, then they will miss out.

Cheers, got a few pairs of trainers to sell so reckon i'll do it via .com to get maximum dollar.

I will probably do the lesser value items via uk as like t_dot said the UK doesn't show up and I can't really be arsed to fuck about sending a t-shirt to the states

True. Everything I send to Italy gets sent international signed for cos so much stuff went missing when I sent it normal airmail. Nothing goes missing now

Is there a way of putting extra pictures in your description? Ebay.com only let me have 5 and I tried hosting them and pasting the image link like I would on here and nothing showed up

Inex, with the listing description you got standard and html,

Write your description in standard as normal then click html, then use photobucket to upload pics pasting the html code in to the description not the img code. I've probably made it sound complicated!
