Comment Topic: General Sniping Discussion / Why eBay doesn't approve of sniping software...

I used to buy a lot of magazines and games from the USA (I’m in England). The time difference meant that I had to enter a lot of bids on multiple items from the same seller many hours in advance – this had a number of disadvantages, the two that Lvanett posts above, plus my fear that my “maximum” would be identified and exploited. I found myself entering “maximum +/- x” which was less than ideal.

JBidwatcher solved that!

I also found entering bids on multiple items (I’m talking dozens here) was a real pain in ebay: there are so many screens to wade through – again JBidwatcher solved that. It would be even better if it could allow multiple items to be selected and a single snipe value entered for all of them (with the intention of winning them all) – or perhaps I’m missing something (very possible).

I found that watching 100 items was often insufficient – again JBidwatcher solved that! I can now (or rather will soon again be able to) “upload” my watched items into JBidwatcher and then delete the watch list. I have yet to find the maximum number of items that JBidwatcher tracks.

JBidwatcher also provides the ability to effectively schedule bidding.

It is the only freeware program I have ever made a volutary donation to – it is that useful.

Thanks!
