    I don't know much about eBay.

    I see these sellers with good ratings 98%+ & thousands of feedback.

    They auction off products worth hundreds & up. They state NO RESERVE.

    I see no bids on some of these products. And less than a day left on the auction.

    What happens? Do they sell their products for a dollar or two?

    Thanks

    In all likelihood, they pull their auction and eat the eBay cost, if they're one of the people that make a living off selling other people's stuff on eBay.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    Ah. Like right before the auction expires. They withdraw their item.

    Most serious bidding only happens within the last 2 minutes of an auction. Fact.

    Well I used to be a power seller on eBay, and I never pulled an auction.

    I have sold below cost a number of times but I respected the whole eBay format and didn't go back on my sale.

    Barbarossa is true though prices double/triple through bidding in the last few minutes.
