How can Items sell for a Penny?

Many ebay sellers start auctions at one penny to attract bids and keep costs down. A proportion of these auctions, for many different reasons, dip under the radar and remain unsold!
Many items start at 1p and whereas some weeks they will take off with multiple bids, in other weeks an identical item can stay at a penny.

Strange but True!!

In the past, some sellers used to sell items at a penny and charge huge shipping costs, over and above the true postage and handling costs. to make a profit with the postal charges. They did this to avoid eBay fees, because fees aren't charged on postage. Ebay got wise to this and started to crack down on people doing this and even stipulating free shipping in some categories, like DVDs. Great news for ebay buyers!
