Hello All! Just wondering if any of you will share with me your feelings or experience on when is the best time of day and the actual day you find is best to list to garner more sales. Thanks so much! Jeanie

I think that depends first off on your time zone.

I'm on the East coast. I find that listing my items at approximately 10pm (+/- 15 minutes) is a good time to be conveniently viewed in all four time zones. Not too late (east) not too early (west).

Another thing to keep in mind is people may be using snipe bidding services which then make time irrelevant. I always use eSnipe for bids, and then just forget about the item, and either win or loose.

I also find Sundays & Mondays to be good days, but really, any day other than Saturday is good. But then again, with the use of sniping programs, the day become irrelevant too.
Hi, I agree with Jeff...Sunday seems best, then Monday and Saturday seem worst. The time seems the best too...Ive tried it lately and it does a bit better. I also have great luck with 3-4pm & 8-9pm also. Hope this helps, Good Luck!
Mpire researcher will allow you to search transactions for a given product and will tell you when the best time to list and close are based on recent sales.

See it here - Mpire Researcher

The free version shows 30 days data - it costs to see more historical data.

Pretty cool for free - try it, you'll like it...
I found that it really doesn't matter a whit what time of day you post a listing. I think it's just folklore so the research gathering programs can sell their product. I will say that I've found Monday to be a good day for hits, I suspect because because folks are going back to work and playing on Ebay when the boss isn't lookingSmile
Hi garyj,

Gotta disagree with you on this...Smile

Sniping service aside (I doubt my buyers use them)...I sell motorcycle clothes, and I see a definite trend toward my buyers being night people, just like me. I can get some good stuff for resale on Ebay by watching for the ones that end in the morning. No one seems to be around to bid 'cept me Wink

I think it definitely does depend on what you sell.
You know it's funny you say that, I've been dabbling with that sellathon trial program and I get the most hits at 2 am!! I never would have thought that!
