Question: Why do people have items in their watching?
I have 27 BINs in my watching right now.
Am I going to buy them? Do I want the item? Why watch the items?
Nope..I have NO intention of buying them whatsoever.
I'm watching them for research on items I have and will begin selling soon. Some are even the same items but by different sellers who took two different vantage points of selling the same item.
I'm watching to see which item sells faster, for more money and what mistakes the seller with less money and more time on a buy it now made.
That way I don't duplicate their slow or low bid auction.
Yep, this would be my first guess.
Competitors / other sellers. I also what auctions and BINs to see what the market / sellers does. Sometimes, I have too many saved in watch to watch anymore, lol. So, there it is.
