My first time looking at Ebay.

Really, the highest bid is 51 pounds? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Does this mean if no one else bids, it must be sold for that low price?

If I had a place to keep it, I´d get involved in the bidding.

No, the chap must have some idea as to what it's worth and will have put a reserve price on... So say it's 2000 until that figure has been reached the item will not be sold, then you keep bidding until the end of the sale...

51 at the moment but there's another 5 days or so left and the starting bid was 5... Early days yet...

Ok, like I said, this is all new to me. If it were 2000 as a starting price, why did the others post so low?

2000 is not the starting price, its the minimum winning bid specified (secretly) by the owner. A bit confusing, but some people feel if the minimum bid were posted, no one would bid. Hiding the minimum winning bid allows people to bid on it and generate some interest. The people bidding low may be hoping that the owner is a noob who doesn't know to set a minimum bid and they can walk away with something for almost nothing.

I have seen ebay auctions where people will keep bidding higher and higher to win a particular auction even when the exact same thing is being sold by someone else at half the price. Stupid, but that's human nature. Some people have to win at any cost even if walking away meant they could have the exact same thing for less money.

Ha ha ha, crazy. IMHO, the seller should have to put a minimum bid. It would be much more interesting. If the minimum is secret, why bother bidding? Silly me thinks.
