Last time I listed anything with "buy it now" I thought the increase had to be 
only about 10%, which is what I'm asking about. Outrageous "now" listings are 
normal (and often work) but when I went to change one of my listings, I found I 
had to come up with a 30% difference.

While I watched it the bidding quickly got to $700 and there was a week to go so naturally I jumped on the buy it now, which at that point was still over 30% higher than the current bid. I don't think 30% is an unusual increase.
