He couldn't sell it for $29.99 so he jacked up the price to $39.99. Why do people do things like this?

No bet here. I probably won't work, but back when I was in the motorcycle business, sometimes when a unit wouldn't sell, I'd put it back in the warehouse for a month or so, then bring it back out, often it would sell right away, some times at a higher price!

I think sometimes it seems to work on epay because people don't leave stuff listed long enough to make it into google. Relisting it also means it's listed longer. A fair number of folks find ebay stuff via google....

>put it back in the warehouse for a month or so, then bring it back out,

With a great big sign that says 'New and Improved !" lol

Weird things happen in retail sometimes, I remember moving stuff from the front door where it was in plain sight and didn't sell, to a back corner that you had to go look in, and the stuff would sell....(scratching head...)

Works sometimes.  We had some jewelry at my grandfather's store and it wasn't selling.  He talked to one of the salesmen he bought from and the salesman told him the prices were too cheap, and people doubted the quality.  So my grandfather doubled the prices, and things sold quickly that had been passed over before.  Human nature can be strange...

The first offering was an auction, but this one is a BIN; there won't be "bids" per se...
