Snipers

Anyone using/used this type of software.... http://www.auctionsniper.com/

I've been pretty successful up till now, although it can be a pain have to stay in for the end of an auction.

This looks like it could be the answer, what do you reckon?

What will happen if two bidders use the software and the same snipe time? Maybe the more popular it gets, the less use it'll be. Shhhhh....

I use AuctionSniper; it's very good.

You can change the time before end of auction that you bid. It will also alert you if you have been outbid before the end of the auction.

I only tend to use it though if it's something I really must have & there's an 'idiot' bidding. I get the feeling that some people don't like 'Snipers'; a couple of times I've not received feedback after 'Sniping' a win.

Call me old fashioned, but I just bid the maximum I'm prepared to pay and see if I get it or not . . .

Me too!! I just put the absolute max I'll go to in there, and if someone wants it more than I do then good luck to them. Easy!
