No, don't tell them, most of them are just looking for something for
nothing. They are hoping you are new and don't know what is going on.
The important bids will come in the last two minutes, so just wait. It
won't really affect the final price either way if you do tell them, but
those people won't bid anyway, they will just counter offer with a much
lower price. You may what to buy some cheap items on ebay, that end
soon, to get some points, in case you need to re-list the instruments.
CD's or sheet music maybe?? A zero point seller may put off some people
especially for more expensive items. If you have more questions, please
write off list.

Subject: [kl] eBay questions

Could anyone who has sold items on eBay tell me about
the reserve price? I keep getting e-mails from
potential buyers asking about what my reserve price
is, since I have no history on eBay. Is that allowed?
Should I tell them my reserve price? Wouldn't that
mess up my chances for the end price, if they know
what the reserve rate is?
