Hey, can anyone explain to me what the purpose of a reserve on an ebay
auctions is? For the life of me I can't figure it out. I mean, if you
want to get at least 250 out of something why not list it's starting bid
at 250, rather than at $1.00 with a 250 reserve? When I see auctions
with a reserve that's not met, I don't look any further!
