With modern online technologies, users communities can organize themselves for buying power, especially population in Asia. If they know how to organize for that, it will be so huge that no Americans will neglect but to join into it for advantages. Just think about that when you have the size and volume, it is you, the consumers in the high tech cloud, name the price, name the quality, name the credit card/banking/insurance services, and you can even name government incentives instead of somebody else naming it. Organize it, organize it on Yahoo, organize it on Google, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter … Asians. Everyday can be black friday and low cost deals can come with high tech organized users cloud.

As far as buying/saving on eBay goes:

If you have a question about an item, go to another of the seller’s listings and ask the question from there. This will add a bit of work for the seller, if they want to add your question and their answer to the item description page. Maybe other interested buyers will not bother to ask a question, instead just continuing to look for a similar item that already has the question answered in the item description.

If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right.

If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.
