Successful eBay sellers are always aware of the time zone differences across the United States. When you have an item listed for auction on eBay, you want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to see it. Remember that eBay officially runs in the Pacific time zone. Keep this time chart handy and refer to it when you post an eBay auction to make sure it doesn't close while part of the country is asleep.
