A: If it looks like an item will sell for a bargain price, then we might choose to list it: If it looks likely to sell well, then we probably will not show it. It's not just about location.

A: We may stop showing items if they start to look like they will sell at a decent price. If you have bid on those items, then log into eBay directly and check your 'my eBay' page, and check for emails from eBay in the inbox of your eBay registered email account.
Q: I've made an incorrect bid on an item. What should I do?
A: You must immediately use eBay's procedure as described here.

A: BayCrazy has always been free to use. The site may receive modest commissions for sending buyers and new members to sites such as eBay and Amazon. There's no catch.
Q: BayCrazy tells me that my postcode is wrong. Why is that?
A: You are almost certainly entering a postcode with a number zero where a letter 'O for orange' should be, or entering a letter 'O for orange' where a number zero should be. Or, you may have the wrong country selected. Check the country flag setting towards the top right of any of our pages.
Q: I do a search but there are no results showing. Why is that?
A: Make sure that you are not searching with an unusual or misspelled keyword. Make sure you haven't accidentally put your postcode in the search term keyword box. Also make sure that you are searching in 'All categories' or the correct category. Try increasing the amount you might be prepared to bid, or the distance you will travel to collect.
Q: The distances you show are wrong. Why is that?
A: We show approximate distances 'as the crow flies' between you and the seller. The distance by road might be different.
