Topic: Time left is N/A for all Buy It Now items

Using JB 2.5.3pre3 also, and I have some FP auctions showing Time Left and some showing N/A.

I opened the auctions in my browser, and I found that the ones which shows Time Left has a field "Time left: xxxx (xxxx PST) " on the auction page, while the other FP auctions to not show Time Left: field. Does ebay allow non-expiring FP auction listings? If they don’t expire, then “N/A” would be correct.

Topic: My 'Watched' list now showing in current tab

Not sure if I’ve set something erroneously, but some (not all) of my ‘Watched’ list is showing in the current auctions tab, whereas previously I was able to ‘Add’ only those items that I wished to snipe on.
Can anyone advise?

Topic: null price again?

I also am getting NULL on my auction items. I looked at upgrading to 2.5 but in reading the forum, they are having the same problem in it. One post said he upgraded his JAVA Platform to fix the problem. HAS Anyone else tried that and had success?
Here is the post:

Topic: null price again?

I, too, am getting the Null(FP) for every buy-it-now auction I add. I’ve tried deleting and re-adding, but it’s no go. Any suggestions?

Topic: null price again?

I opened a new tab for a specific search. I find almost every one (many, many) of the items have “null(0)” or "null(FP). If I delete and re- add the auction the correct price shows. Running 2.5. I also see a some “null(0)” in my Current List.

Topic: Get My eBay Items reports 1 more than actually found

Have a look in the “Current” tab. Sometimes JBid gets it wrong, if the items are in the “Current” tab simply transfer them to the right tab.

After deleting and re-adding my auction, the correct price appeared.

I had it with 2.1.8, so I upgraded to 2.5 and still had it on the same auction:

Topic: null price again?

It is not 1 out of 100. it is more like 1 out of 4. it is a big issue for me, too. It started not so long ago. maybe a month or so. Anyone has a solution?

Topic: null price again?

I also have seen a few items added with null price still with the new version. It is like 1 out of 100. The last two times it happened was for Buy-It-Now items.

Topic: Where should newly watched items appear?

almost same experience on my end (Mac OS X 10.6.8 and 10.7.2).

eBay makes so many changes (they have hundreds of programmers working on things everyday), and JBW somehow still works as long as you try to work with it with experiences like such.

When I do a URL search – it will find lots of new listings, and for some reasons, some of them will go to the pre-defefined tab which I ask the search to go to, but part of the search results are all ended in the “current” tab. so I simply do search, and then go to “current” and select all and move them to the desired tab. I get it to work for me to my advantages, and I am still winning listings on items I want based on my globally assigned snipes. I do not do multiple bids, I select a lot of the same items, and then choose “snipe” (not multiple snipes) as I wish to win as many as I can from those and normally things will take little of my efforts and later I just concentrate on finding out how many of those I won and get to pay them from Paypal.

It’s like life, we learn how to make it work for us. JBW is great, but eBay has a way of making over 30,000+ changes everyday (really?)…

Topic: new auction, no display

G4, tiger, jbw 2.1pre4. New auction can’t be loaded, neither by manual typing nor dragging # to add box.
example here: ebay # 230367273912. First hassle I’ve had with 2.1pre4. Still 95% usable. Thanx.

Topic: Can I restore my completed list?

Has 2.1pre3-998 helped at all?

If you turn on the internal web interface, and browse to http://localhost:9099/JBidwatcher (it uses your own eBay username/password as the access key), do the items show up there?
