I was under the impression that the second line for description wording (for an additional fee) was included when someone runs a search. I found out this to be not true. I would like to maybe change some of the wording to go to the 1st line instead for better searching by a potential customer. There are no bids yet on my auction and there is more than 12 hours left.

Also, can the amount, BIN, reserve price be added/deleted/changed if there is no bids and more than 12 hours left.

Because my descriptive words above were not bringing in the amount of lookers because of the error I made in putting the better choice of wording in the second line and this has hurt my auction, would anyone out there consider ending the auction early?

Actually you may as well let it run...ebay has already charged you. By 'second line' I think you mean the subtitle? You've already been charged for that, and in all honesty I always thought it a waste of money. There is plenty of room in the TITLE for a description of your item, it doesn't even have to sound like a sentence...use keywords only. Never use words like 'LOOK' or even worse 'HARD TO FIND'. Takes up too much valuable space.

Since I can't see the auction you're talking about, this is your call...if you think it would sell better with a complete rewrite, then go for it. If I knew for a fact I would attract alot more bidders with a better title, I would do it, but that's just me.

I think you can change your BIN (not positive on that one) but as before, you've already been charged a listing fee based on the price you have now. And I would never chage anything in an auction if I had even one watcher, that would be a real turnoff (unless it was for the better Smile )

Good luck, whatever you do Smile
