I've always liked JBid Watcher.https://www.jbidwatcher.com/
I use "this is my maximum bid" and then stop watching. If someone wants it for more it's theirs! :BEER: :BEER:
Same here. eBay can bid just as fast for you as any of the add-on programs.Lannis
If you bid earlier than 5 or 10 seconds from the end, there's a pretty high probability that you'll pay more if you still win.
I think I probably worded that clumsily. What I meant was that if you bid more than about 10 seconds before the end and win, the chances are good that you will pay more (closer to your maximum bid) than if you wait.
I have never used a proxy. Its easy to get a bid in within 2 seconds or better especially now that eBay has a real time clock running. The only time you might need a proxy is if you won't be close to a computer when the auction ends.Pete
Sniping only works if your final bid with the sniping software is set high enough to beat other snipers.
Another detail I look for is when the auction ends. I get stuff for lower bids when the auction ends 5:AM NY time. Auctions that close during business hours on a weekday are often crazy high.
Hmm , don't think *competitive Ebay bidding* will ever be an Olympic sport ;D Dusty
I don't know Dusty. When you can attach a rag on the end of a stick and wave it around to win an gold some sort of competitive bidding can't be far behind. ::) :BEER:Matt
I "buy it now" far more than I bid on ebay. Many items are I buy are not auction items. What I find interesting is that many ebay stores also have internet stores. And they often charge more for the same product in their internet store than on the ebay store. I think competition on the ebay drives the prices down. You have to look carefully to not get a bogus product but I find a lot of new name brand products far cheaper than retail on ebay. I have returned a couple of items but I have only been burned once.
As a counterpoint: I paid $135 for an item online yesterday from a retailer's website for $30 less than anyone had them advertised on Ebay. Free shipping for orders over $99 from the retailer. The Ebayers were charging for shipping.It pays to search around.
The only time you might need a proxy is if you won't be close to a computer when the auction ends.
