Can anyone tell me what's the point for selling at the current bid price?

    Look at the auctions this guy bought:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190191792147
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190191793147
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300192981192

    Now, if the seller ending the auction earlier to "sell at current bid price". Does that means the final price will ending up with the BID price instead of the actual auction price? Still, I really don't see any point for seller to ending his auction earlier unless they really need the money, or pre-arranged auction.

    I would guess he/she got an offer to end the auction early for a price they were happy with... not necessarily the final bid price. I'm just guessing here.

    I know I've gotten offers from time to time to end the auction early. I've also made offers as well to see if the seller will sell at a given price.

    Wow, I actually remember a couple of those auctions. They definitely didn't start at those prices. It's quite possible those are the prices the buyer paid. It's also possible the buyer paid more, and a different selling price was made outside of eBay. The seller most likely doesn't know, value-wise, what they had.

    Either way, the buyer socially engineered their way into a good deal for themselves.
