Sizing Down Your Auctions

I often heard people say, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat.” Well, there is also more than one way to win auctions on DealDash, too.

Do you size up your auctions on DealDash.com? In other words, do you shop for only specific sizes? The reason this question matters is because we can win more auctions by thinking outside the box. I’ve already tested my theory and proved to myself that if we are willing to bid on any size, small or large, instead a specific size, we can win more auctions.

I used to wonder why DealDash did not just allow customers choose the size they wanted after winning an auction that comes in various sizes, like other companies do. For example, whenever I order a pair of shoes online, I always get to choose the size I want before I place my order. However, we cannot do that when shopping on DealDash, but we can do the next best thing.

We can win any size, choose to take the free bids instead, and then use those bids to win the size we need. The reason it’s a good idea to do it that way is because some sizes may be easier to win than others.

Let’s look at a few examples:

  • An 18K white gold-plated trio wrap ring, with a Buy It Now price of $170. The last 16 times this ring sold on DealDash in size 8, it sold on average for $2.51. The last 16 times this exact same ring sold on DealDash in size 6, it sold on average for $1.61. Therefore, the large sized ring is more difficult to win. If we bid on the small size ring, we can exchange it for bids and use those bids to win the size ring we want.
  • Rain boots, with a Buy It Now price of $200. The rain boots in size 7.5 sold on average the last four times for $7.85. The exact same rain boots in size 6 sold on average for $3.89. Therefore, it is easier to win the rain boots in the smaller size. Again, we could bid on the smaller size rain boots, exchange them for free bids and use those bids to win the size boots we want.
