I assume there’s a factual answer to this question as ebay will have differing amounts of traffic at various times.
Most of the action on ebay auctions occurs in the last few minutes - so obviously something that ends at 5pm eastern in the US is going to get more action than something that ends at 4am.
Is there an optimal day and time where the activity level is highest? I’ve read that you want it to end on a weekend afternoon - people aren’t at work and have time to sit around on the internet.
But I’ve also heard that doing it during weekday work hours is better - people actually often use the internet for personal reasons at work more than they do on weekends. Lots of sites has significant traffic drop off over the weekends.
So what’s the story with ebay? What’s the ideal time for an auction to end?
