Last night I multi-sniped 5 cell phones hoping to buy one, but this morning I find I’m the unhappy owner of 2 of them. I thought the multi-snipe feature was to buy one of the many in the multi-snipe?

At least I’m out only $20, but now I know I can’t trust multi-sniping – especially for expensive items.

:-(

Have you read Morgan’s guide? See: http://www.jbidwatcher.com/help/multisniping.shtml it may explain what went wrong.

I can see your point, however I often bid on multiple items hoping to win all the multiple items. So if I bid on ten laptops and found out I only won one I would be upset.

Is there a way to set it for both?

TIA

Greetings,
The feature you want @magnuui isn’t available as a specific tool (win X of Y auctions), but you can place individual snipes on each laptop. Bulk placing snipes is possible via scripting against the web interface…which is more complex than you probably want.
