Default Would a 3 day ebay auction be a bad idea?

1 day is best. Our company use to use 1 day auctions when we were powersellers.

I always do 7 day auctions just because it gives more time for people to see your auction. I wouldn't do a 3 day auction unless it was buy it now.

Whenever I sell anything on ebay I always use the 3 day auctions. Never had any problems.

I usually do 5 days. I don't a lot of "watchers" in the first 2-3 days usually.

Mine as well do 5 days at least. The cost is the same.
