Odd ebay listings
Posted by oldline1 on Thursday, August 22, 2019 9:16 PM

For a week or so I have seen a couple listings in the HO Brass area that stay in the top 5-6 listings all the time. I don't recall ever seeing that before. Is that something new?

I don't know if this is the same, but I have seen the same brass Akane 4-8-2 in the "Newly Listed" section for a couple of weeks every day.

I don't know if that's one but things used to work down the list with new arrivals. Theres a PRR 0-6-0 and 0-4-0 that stay stationary. I just noticed they have the word SPONSORED above the listing title. Maybe that's a new "feature" when listing to make more money and keep the listing prominent? Who knows?

Obviously doesn't seem to be working as a sales techniquesince they've been there a while! LOL

"Sponsored" listings get to keep their place in the list, so that more people see them.
