Since the tool is almost done, I wanted to run some tests on real eBay data. I am really interested to know how much used iPad 16GB is selling on eBay, so I set up a scheduled search in JoyBidder eBay Auction Sniper Pro Edition. To save some electricity and mostly spare my aging computer, I have JoyBidder running in sleep mode, so it only wakes up computer every 2 hour, search eBay and import any newly ended iPad 16GB items to JoyBidder and then back to sleep. Although I only had it running two days, I am already getting some interesting results. See charts below.
used iPad 16GB Daily Price Trend
used iPad 16GB Daily Volume Trend
You will notice some interesting stuff here:
- Both price and volume have a big rally during the Father's Day
- Once in a blue moon, there is some incredible bargain on eBay. Some used iPad 16G were sold under $300. (This is the total price including shipping). Here is one of the link if you are suspicious of any wrong doings. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290443689687
- The eBay sales data analysis tool will be released as a separate purchasable module of JoyBidder eBay Auction Sniper Pro Edition for a very affordable one-time fee.
- You can use JoyBidder Pro Edition to run scheduled search to find bargain or rare items.
