Why did my auction sell for much less than another that sold days ago?

Recommended Posts

It ended on a Thursday evening and yours ended on a Tuesday mid afternoon. Also you have very little feedback and probably registered recently. The more feedback the more people trust sellers.

I am no expert on these things, but your sale was shortly after the previous one. Perhaps two people were in a bidding war in the first auction.

Probably would have helped to mention Sega Dreamcast in the title.

I like this answer the best. The vast majority of my ebay browsing uses a wide search phrasing. If I were to browse Dreamcast auctions, that would be the word: Dreamcast. Even if I were to search a specific game, I would still add the system it's for.

 

I wouldn't be too picky about the low feedback, as long as it was %100.

Set it for 7 days, starting and ending on a Sunday evening. And yes you should have put "Dreamcast" in the title.

I also wouldn't have started it lower either taking into account the median sales paid range you can find looking at sold listings.  If it mostly sells say $40-50, start it at $40 or close, someone will bite.  Cheap auctions or penny auctions often backfire, horribly.
