Auctiva and Ebay are both in California...so if you're somewhere else you'll have to account for the difference in time zones. I had tried to set my time zone in Auctiva in the past but it never worked right for some reason...so now if I want to start something at 9PM I schedule it for 7PM (I'm 2 hours different).
