I never do 7 day auctions. When I did, I sat for the first 5 days watching nothing happen. 5 days is plenty, 3 is better.

As a buyer it works the same way. I put something on my watch list, 7 days from end of auction and before that auction matures I found another item.

Essentially you're saying "Check back in a week." Yeah, right.

I disagree, during that 7 days there are more chances for buyers to see your item. It has worked for me during the last 20 years. Hey, but your experience may show different results. The thing is to price the opening bid at 50% or less of the latest prices listed in sold items, for expensive items, and starting at one dollar for cheap stuff you can live without, or just want to get rid of instead of giving it to Goodwill etc.
