how to set reserve on flea bay.
I am attempting to sell some items on flea bay and one of the items if an alabaster Pieta that could easily be worth over $300. I have everything entered but while there is a place to set the starting bid or a buy-it-now, I do not find a place to set a reserve price. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Selling with a reserve price

If you don’t see the reserve price option on the form, follow these steps:
Click the Add or remove options link next to Choose how you'd like to sell your item.

In the window that appears, select Reserve price, and then click the Save button.

On the Sell Your Item form, under the starting price, click the Change link next to No Reserve price set for this item.

Enter the reserve price in the window that appears, and then click the Save button.

unfortunately I see no option to set reserve.

It appears you are using Ebay Mobile vs. actual Ebay, not sure you can do it in mobile.

P.S. stats have shown that items tend to get fewer bids and sell for less when using a blind reserve. I'd recommend putting your starting price where you were going to set the reserve.

Up above your price do you see this?

Maggot, no I am not into technology enough to have anything mobile and on ebay regular with my computer.
DashHopes, what you see on the screen is the top of the listing short of the title. I think what I will do is follow your link and re-enter the information.

Hope it works. Other then that i'm at loss as to why you wouldnt see it?

I think it is under the advanced setting.

That is what I am trying to find but have been doing a poor job of it.

I was talking to a friend about you problem and they thought you needed a certain amount of feedback to be able to do a reserve? I cannot find anything to back this up though?
