I have a question about eBay bidding..... When you place a bid in the Blue Bidding Field : "Place Bid" does the bid instantly show up so everyone can see that you bid that amount, or does eBay hide your bid until someone else bids higher ?? I think ebay has somethinig called Proxy Bidding, where it hides your bid ?? i was just trying to figure out if Ebays bidding is just as good as sniping ?
