I hope it doesnt stop there, i wonder if i can knock back the sale if i dont make enough??

I'm not sure if you can cancel a sale or not, but you can set a reserve price when you set up the auction. That way if it doesn't hit that price it won't sell. The fees are a bit higher for that though.

from what i can tell, australia doesnt have a reserve. I have emailed them to ask. Hopefully they wont take too long to get back to me

Good luck Lisa with both pics and paintings. The pics do look good in the frames. I know you could set a reserve a year or so ago so hopefully you still can :)
06/22/2005 07:50:37 AM · #13
if you can't set a reserve can you at least set your initial bid higher so you know you will make at least that much? I tried to sell a couple prints on there a very long time ago but they weren't anywhere near this quality, good luck.

how much did it cost to frame and mat and print them. at what price is it going to profitable?
06/22/2005 08:52:20 AM · #15
Now that you have bids you can't change anything, except maybe the description to add information. You won't be able to add a reserve or up the price and unless you can mutually decide with the buyer to make the auction a wash, there is that option once the auction ends, you're pretty much stuck with whatever info you've put in there at the start.

Had there been no bids yet I think you could've changed everything, including your initial price.

I think you may not even be able to close the auction since you have a bid already. Not sure about that though.

That's great, it's hard to sell prints on Ebay, Bids already show your talent!
06/22/2005 08:59:22 AM · #17
In my opinion it is just best to let these auctions ride out and not try to cancel them, even if this time you lose money, by canceling you may tarnish your ebay record which could hurt future sales, I would just ride this one out and chalk it up as a learning experience. Next time be sure to either set a reserve or start your bid out higher, just my 2 cents though.

Great picture, I loved your paintings too, you are multi-talented lol.

Good luck!

It's a shame you don't ship to the US, my son would love that guitar.

The print cost $4 and the frame cost $5, so i am not too worried about this one, i am more concerned about the guitar. I might see if i can change it, cause nobody has bid on it yet.
06/22/2005 04:59:18 PM · #21
recap, i just changed the starting price of the guitar. Phew, i have 7 people watching it, i hope they dont get angry with me

I'll be curious how you make out with the photos. I've considered Ebay'ing some of mine but have heard from others that it didn't go so well for them.

Good luck with your sales!
