In my ideas,between 11:30am and 13:00pm,20:30pm to 23:00pm. Because during this time,the people could manager their time free. Or watch mv,read the news and more shopping. In Ebay,under the same condition,the lastest listings are always listed before others.

Default Time To Post

Sunday Evening between 6 and 9 pm (Pacific Time U.S.)

This is when the most people are online and not doing anything else.

you generally want your auction to end in the evening when most people are not busy so can snipe at the last moment. maybe sunday evening is best?

I like to end in early afternoon or late evening. This way you can catch people either right before they leave work or right before they go to bed. I also think it is a good idea to do 7 day auctions and have the listings end sometime Fri-Sun as the weekend is when people have free time to manage their online shopping. One good idea that always do is test your product out at all different times and days. I have noticed that different types of products tend to sell differently as related to time so it is worth the tests.

I've recently read some interesting research online that indicates that more people are shopping online during their work week than in their own free time on the weekend.

I try to end my auctions around Sunday night at 6pm, PST. That's when most of the bids come in, it seems.

always make sure youre ebay items end on a saturday or sunday
because more people shop over the weekend when they do not work

also people like to buy things while they can watch the item or have time to complete the transaction

much better chance to have it end on saturday or sunday

I've spent a couple of years auctioning stuff on Ebay. The best time I've discovered is 6-7pm local time of your buyer, and on Sundays. So if my target customers were in the USA, I would list something that ends 6pm PST on Sunday.

I have to agree with you! This is truly an ideal time to do business on eBay. As Sunday can be a shopping day and rest for many people. Aside from this, can you suggest more ideal times of selling products on eBay? I'd like to know for future reference.
