Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / partial login

Sorry I don’t have any other suggestions besides the logout/login at the eBay website. You said you’re in Canada, but are you using the Canadian or US eBay website?

After I resolved my “partial login” problem a couple of days ago, JBW was still not picking up my watched items. Today I started it up and it loaded in the new watched items on it’s own. Just successfully sniped an auction too, thanks Morgan!

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / partial login

I guess the captcha thing was temporary because now it doesn’t error on that but it still shows the partial login.

The “test login” button says: eBay put up a captcha to prevent programs from logging in to your account".
Maybe because I’m in Canada?

I still can’t get it to log me in.
I deleted everything and now I can’t even partially log in.
I will try the Windows version.

Fixed issue: logged out and back in to eBay in browser, then did a “refresh eBay session” in JBW and again have the green light.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / partial login

I am using 2.99pre5-2-g7251940.
The login status is yellow and the bubble help says “Last login did not clearly fail, but no valid cookies were received”.

I don’t see anything from ebay.

The output says:
Wed Jul 26 19:14:03 EDT 2017: Getting the sign in cookie for ebay.com
Wed Jul 26 19:14:03 EDT 2017: Parsing URL https://signin.ebay.com/ws2/eBayISAPI.dll?SignIn
Wed Jul 26 19:14:05 EDT 2017: Potential quote error!

I also see:
Wed Jul 26 19:14:07 EDT 2017: Potential quote error!
Wed Jul 26 19:14:07 EDT 2017: File contents logged with message: Security checks out, but no My eBay form link on final page…
Wed Jul 26 19:14:07 EDT 2017: Done getting the sign in cookie for ebay.com

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

I am not having that problem with settings of 9 seconds on my end. I am using OS X 10.12.5 and still keeping winning auctions despite not getting any thumbnails images.

Perhaps you can update your Mac OS, and in JBW, under SERVERS pull down menu bar, select to view the “Time Information”, and then “Synchronize Time”.

My Time here has a Page Load time = 1075, and eBay time delta = -326

Goodluck.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

Hello,
recently I experience that Snipes are failing.
Although Snipe time is set to 12 secondes, the Snipe is fired to late.
The internal watch is correct, so the snipe fires to late and thus I lost some auctions.
I’m currently on MacOS 10.12 using JBidwatcher v2.99
Any tips would be highly appreciated.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Cannot Update

You might want to try just go download directly and install it (to replace the old version). I am on (JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940)) and it says it’s the current version. It’s working for me, as I can win snipes but it does not add more Thumbnails anymore, but it snipes and I am using it. It’s the Edge version, and you can download directly below:

http://www.jbidwatcher.com/download/JBidwatcher-2.99pre5.dmg

I am running OS X 10.12.5 corei7 2.7Ghz

Good Luck.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Cannot Update

I am unable to update JBidwather. I can download the update or start to… after the 70.1 mb has been dowloaded I get a message that the update could not be downloaded at this time. Try again later… I’ve been trying since the update came out. :) Any body else have this problem? I am on a macbook pro running 10.12.2

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Drag and drop broken

FYI, restarted JBW and drag/drop returned – very odd. Did this after adding new auctions by auction number stopped working. Both work now. Still, no pictures…

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Can not add auction???

I see. so go to your JBW preferences, and select (eBay) tab, and change the (Browe target, country site: to ebay.fr), and you should see all your local items. We are in USA, so I do not look at items from ebay.fr as I don’t even understand the language and the shipping cost are very expensive to get it to here. Good luck.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Can not add auction???

Thanks for looking, but it DOES exist (since I have bought it !) ; http://www.ebay.fr/itm/Ensign-2-1-4-B-Spiegelreflex-Box-Historische-Kamera-/132210220385? loads it. You are right: changing ebay.fr to ebay.com in link gives an error. The object is in ebay.de. How can I set jbidwatcher to correctly find the item ? i also use another bidding program (Bid-O-Matic from sourceforge) and it finds the object and won auction. Maybe this has somewhat linked to shipping to parameter in listing. I wrote an API searching ebay program (not bidding) through ebay API and it sometimes (though rarely) find objects that I cannot access even if they exist.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / New auctions - no photos

Yes, no pictures. I’d added more than 2 dozens new listings, none have thumbnail pictures. But all work when it needs to snipe and my snipe fired, not winning due to my bid was too low to win, but JBW still function as a sniper app, I will adjust my bid prices and I am sure I will win a few in the next few days.

Last three auctions I’ve added, no pictures… not exhaustive testing but enough to think it’s broken.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Tips and Tricks / Feature Request: Shutdown if no queued auctions

I often want to jbid on something…but forget to bring it up the day of the auction. So feature request is to have JBid shutdown if there are no auctions in its queue. I would use it this way. Have JBid started at every boot. On invocation with this feature, it would kill itself unless it had one of more auctions with snipes queued up.
It would be even better if it requested PC shutdown confirmation if there was an auction item in 12 hours or less.
