I have found most bids and certainly the serious ones come within the closing minute so for listings of 5 days or more who cares ?
Correcto mundo, however early "new listing" exposure does tend to pick up some watchers and even some early bidding, which, hopefully, will tend to drive up the final price. Loss of prime time certainly dampens this potential activity.
It seems like BINs however are the most seriously affected by loss of prime time exposure because buyers tend to jump on a BIN early to secure the purchase, rather than waiting until the end of an auction.
