Ebay Auctions... scheduling an end date/time

It's great that you can schedule a start time for an auction, but wouldn't it be great to be able to schedule an end time too? I missed my opportunity this past Sunday evening so now I guess I'll have to wait an additional week...

    If you miss the Sunday opportunity you can always do a 5 day auction starting Tuesday evening

    True, but there looks to be no way to amend the end time other than to set the start time and calculate accordingly... unfortunately, I'm at the 4 day mark which is not an option in the dropdown...

    When I used to frequent Ebay, I did not like auctions that ended on Sunday... Usually way too much competition. Preferred those that ended late in the middle of the week... People would forget/fall asleep and leave opportunities for me to get good material without super competition. Cheers, RickO

    Exactly because you are the buyer. Opposite for the seller!🤣😂

    Along the same thoughts as @ricko. I enjoy the late night action during 11pm est and 3 am on Friday and Saturday nights. Folks that get too high, booze or otherwise can create some opportunities and at least entertainment as they over bid
    Agree with during the week and would ad early am is a good time. Thanks 😀👶
