Does anyone know of a Reputable, Free eBay bid sniping software (mac) or website?
That's just nasty, bid like the rest of us!
haha, well unfortunately, "the rest of you" are bid sniping my bids and I keep losing. So I guess if you can't beat 'em, join 'em! See my point? Anyway, anyone have suggestions?
They're relatively common on the Windows platform and many individuals use them. I too have looked around for a quality Mac client and have been unsatisfied with my search results.
Any suggestions for clients?
Someone's gotta use bid sniping software (because I keep getting sniped). Anyone know of a good one?
I think you are limited to 3 auctions per week (whether you win or loose), and the free version snipes at 10 seconds before the auction is over.
I believe the paid version snipes at 2 or 3 seconds before.
Edit: It's a web service, not software.
auctionsniper.com works great and you get a good number of free snipes if I remember correctly. After that it's still very cheap.
I always wondered... why doesn't eBay institute a service whereby an auction doesn't end until after both the specified end time AND a set time after the last bid? Would make things SOOOO much nicer, especially for sellers, but for buyers too who don't want to have to sit there sniping all their auctions.
Perhaps I'm just not getting it... but what possible benefit would there be?
I am little wary about entering my eBay name and pw into a website. Is this site pretty good about privacy?
It would eliminate sniping because when someone bid with 2 seconds left, the auction would automatically be extended 10 more minutes or whatever. Higher ending prices would be good for sellers and although buyers would pay more for high-demand items, it would be more convenient for them too because they could just enter their max bid whatever and not have to worry about getting sniped - if they lose, they lose, but at least they weren't sniped.
So the only difference is that there are no snipers.
Well, eBay, unlike most other auction sites, does not ban sniping. So, in their opinion, sniping is a completely ethical practice. So, eBay isn't going to so this because they believe sniping is OK.
I've been using the service since December, and haven't had a problem. I've never observed if the site uses SSL or any other type of encrypting for your user name or password.
Honestly, I've never been worried about anyone stealing my eBay identity. I don't see how they would benefit. If it ever did happen, I guess I would just be faced with a bunch of angry sellers. eBay's policies tend to always favor the bidder, not the seller.
sniping is just a name of the eBay game... i mean, it just comes down to truly bidding to what you are willing to pay for an item. if you under no circumstances will pay more than $80, but you put a bid in for $70, then get sniped and the auction ends at $71... then whose fault is that? just bet $80, and if you lose it, then look for something else that's more in your price range.
up and up and up
LOL ... I guess it just means the auction price will keep going and going up as the snipers bid against each other until they run out of money ... quite funny really if you think about it!
wow.....talk about reviving a thread from the grave...last post was over 6 years ago!
the age of a thread often has no bearing on its relevance. when this is the case, there is no practical difference between someone responding in six minutes and someone responding in six years. and no thread is in "the grave" while it's still visible online and showing up in searches.
Just like an automatic bidding extension.
