On the Instant Buys- there are watchers, are they waiting for the price to go down? Can I buy the daylily at the price it is showing or do I have to bid?
Buy it now- same there some watchers nothing in the bid column
Store items- watchers buy under the bid column
And if it shows ending, does that mean it will be taken off it a short time
This probably doesn't make any sense. If someone can explain how the auction works I would be grateful. Alma Confused

Watchers are not waiting for the prices to go down. Watching it like putting in a bookmark. You have not decided if you quite want it yet, or have any space yet. Or if this person is the cheapest for what you want, without further investigation.
"Buy it now" is different from "instant buy" as "buy it now" can be bid on also, e.g. starting bid of 9.99 which starts up an auction, OR choose to "buy it now" instead for $14.99 to completely avoid going through the auction. A gamble.

Most buy it now stays on the auction for several days up to several weeks. They all have to list a end date. Most that doesn't sell is relisted within a few days as determined by the seller.
