Hi, here is what happened….tell me if I am crazy. After setting up a snipe on german ebay…..the item on the german ebay was no longer available. I could not look for the item via my browser….also soon after, Jbidwatcher listed the auction as “unknown”. I shutdown everything and the next morning, I found the item again on german ebay. Is german ebay detecting the Jbidwatchers queries and then blocking my IP? If so, is there a way to turn off the querying by Jbidwatcher and just fire off the bid per the setting?

Almost certainly not. Could be any number of reasons – error in the listing, a policy delisting by eBay that was then corrected, etc…

My ip was blocked for the same reason. Still don’t know what to do with it, we have to use proxies. The solution of this problem with ip is still not found?

Preventing someone to bid is not really fitting into the ebay business model. Before I used JBidWatcher I did manual sniping. It often did not work because I just forgot to do it. So with JBidWatcher everybody earned more from my sniping. So I doubt that ebay targets JBidWatcher.
