Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Won items not marked as won

Most all my winnings from Nov.2017 till now are moved to completed tab and color blue, except last one is color red still on Feb.8th,2018, but it was moved to completed tab so I know it’s done correctly, and I don’t have the date issue on my end.

Are you on Windows?
I am on Mac OS.

Comment Topic: Announcements / Temporarily despammed

I continue to have success using JBW, with my Mac OS X, now 10.13.3

Things are doing quite well actually. thumbnails, color, moving to right tabs, etc. I don’t know why, but I just keep using it, and when I win, I am happy.

Thanks again Morgan.
Life is good
Time – keeps ticking….

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Searches failing

Yes, thanks, that brings back the thumbnails too. Well, if you have saved searches and listings, then you need to rebuild those too.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Snipe failed

sorry to hear that.

Today my JBW sniped and won again. My Mac probably is in screen sleep mode, but it fired, and here’s what I use:

JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940)
OS X 10.12.6

I just leave my computer, and it will have eventually black screen, but it will stay on and fire snipes.

Well, don’t see much of a difference, as I was on 10.12.5 and JBW worked too, The only thing might be that your system is set to sleep and it did not wake in time. Check your energy settings.etc. I upgraded to SSD and lots or RAM so I keep the machine on 24/7 and not to worry much about heat generated by rotational HDD anymore. It works well so far for me, except that the thumbnails don’t work now, but it does not hinder JBW ability to snipe for me so far.

Let me know if anything else you see as could be changed to make it work for you again.

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 / 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 / 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 / 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.

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

Hi, I tried to find your (311871848690) directly in eBay and it does not show up. So, you need to confirm that it does exist on eBay first. I am using ebay.com from USA.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / captcha

Happened before…. You need to quit JBW, login to eBay manually from a browser, and get through the captcha. then, use ebay that way, and wait about 24 hours and run JBW again. Hope that works for you. Good luck.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / No thumbnails?

well, I added 5 more items to sell on eBay using GarageSale and JBW updated all my new listing into “selling” tab automatically but no more thumbnails on those new listings… I think it’s just not updating it now.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / No thumbnails?

I’d just checked my end, I have thumbnails on all my selling items, and one on the items I won (the other 3 not) and nothing else has thumbnails. It must have something to do with the way items are listed, or cached. IDK. This is a setup on OS X, 10.11.6 Intel core i7, JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940)

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Any closer to another pre-release?

I have been using JBW for a while now and contributed twice, and I must say – Thank you very much…. as it had won me many “surprises” and I am happy.

Currently, I am on JBidwatcher (2.99pre5-2-g7251940) using a core i7 Mac and running 10.11.6 and there’s no problem with loading speed, etc. etc….. and it does snipe well for me (if it’s not falling to deep sleep, and snipe bid amount is high enough), but it is loading up listing from “no where”, and they keep adding up, and I’d noticed that some are from very old searches I did, and some of them are from recent search …..

i used to select them all by weeding them out and trash them, but a lot of them came back, and I don’t know if they are duplicated. Then I try to move them to a new Tab, and they keep growing, so eventually I will delete a few hundred of them and quit JBW and launch again….

Besides that…. it’s doing well, and snipe and drag and drop works…….

Again, thanks so much for all the works in the past ….. 16 years is a LONG time…..

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Development / 10.8+ Is there a real reason?

I have a setup that rarely fail, always can win for me if I set the sniping amount high enough (realistically enough).

Works on OS X 10.6.8 or 10.7, I think it should work with 10.8 which is what I might try later.

JBidwatcher (2.5.3pre3-2-g03a9bc3)

I keep this setup as I don’t want to deal with all the issues with new version of JBW combined with Java and OS X. I do have other machines that runs more on current software so as a sniping server, it’s working well for me always.

Hope that helps.

Comment Topic: Announcements / Can't download?

over time when your DB gets large and sometimes it will get to be so large your JBW will slow to crawl doing refresh or update… I constantly delete all items and reload from my eBay Watch List …. because over time, those listings although is tracked on your JBW, will no longer show on internet from eBay servers. Your best bet on archiving is to actually save those listings you wish to keep for any future references in PDF file or whatever format you wish from eBay server when it’s still available online. Ended auction after 90-days will be removed from eBay public servers and you will no longer be able to view them….

When I do clean up on my JBW, it runs fast and lean and snipe never failed for me. I have archives of those PDF files of the listings of items I won before….. That’s how I do it.

try login to your ebay account on browser, and to MyeBay and select and delete all “past” and ended auctions from your ebay list. otherwise they will come back on JBW, it happened to my older versions too, but simply reomove from eBay and delete from JBW, they never come back.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Tips and Tricks / An alternate "Snipe".

I think ebay sets a token from JBW, and not a password is stored on JBW server, I store my password on my computer’s JBW program, not on someone else server that I have no control with and I trust eBay as that’s where I send the snipe to, so the token is okay for me.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Time Left N/A

Sorry to hear that MEC2, I don’t bid on coins but everything else, and I just won a couple listings today, and still okay with me Time Left with all the listings that has an end date even with the constant YELLOW login status indicatior. I do have all other listings that the seller choose to auto-relist as N/A, but those are all Buy-It-Now listings.

My listings in JBW for MyEbay is getting large, i will purge them, and reload, as I found that help to improve the performance of JBW a lot. Yes, quit and re-launch also help, and I also always do the following:

Under File > Clear Deleted Tracking, and Dump Cache
Under eBay > Dump Activity Queue, and Refresh eBay Sessions, and Get My eBay Items.

Things are running okay for me, I am not saying it’s perfect, sometimes glitches show up, but I do believe it’s mostly due to the hundreds of code changes from eBay’s end.

Hope that helps.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Time Left N/A

so many of you have Time Left N/A issues. I don’t have that and I am using OS X on Mac, and I see N/A on my own listings that set to auto relist so there’s no end date, on those, I see N/A.

On others, if they are also set that way, then they are N/A and they are all Buy-It-Now listings like mine that rolls over after 30 days listing, so there’s actually no “end date”.

I am also in USA, using USA servers, so I don’t have bidding issue on Time Left N/A on those that are in auction format.

I usually keep my iMac running 24/7, I rarely restart (unless system update requires that, or my system is lagging from Chrome or Firefox plug-ins).

Am I correct to assume that the (Time Left N/A) issue happens to non-USA server, running Windows?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Time Left N/A

Guys, I am still on JBW old version – JBidwatcher (2.5.3pre3-2-g03a9bc3)

First of all, I don’t have any Time left N/A issues so far. (it happened before, but it went away by itself over time)

I had Green light on my JBW login when I was using OS X 10.6.8
I now have yellow light on my login using 10.7.5 now continuously (but it works fine)

I want to run 10.6.8, but I am running OS X 10.7.5 now which I upgraded from 10.6.8 very recently only because I need get a new version of the iTunes in order to sync my new iPhone now. When I do so, I lost my scanner driver (tossed it and bought a new AIO color laser), and some of my old purchased favorite games (oh well).

But on 10.6.8 the JBW was always doing quite well, missed a few snipes ever (internet or server glitches?), but it’s okay, and I won most others when I set the snipe $amount high enough to win. I wish I can go back to that.

With OS 10.7.5 and JBidwatcher (2.5.3pre3-2-g03a9bc3), I only get yellow login, but I have no issue winning and I am just happy using it as a good tool.

I have other machines that I can run OS X 10.8 and 10.9 and 10.10 and 10.11, but my daily “tool” is this good old faithful iMac running 10.7.5 and the older version of JBW- JBidwatcher (2.5.3pre3-2-g03a9bc3). It’s on 24/7.

And the old version of JBW seem still runing well and win snipes for me. Yes, there are weirdness on the JBW once a while, but over time it will correct itself, so I believe is those group of monkeys at eBay teams who are just working on changing their codes furiously everyday to keep their jobs. ;-)

Based on my experience using JBW, I would recommend:

- trim your old database to what’s needed. Keeping thousands of old listings are of no use because they are not even kept on eBay public servers when you click to go to eBay.

- quit and re-launch JBW once a while. Things run much Speedier when you have your machine rebooted also once a while.

Have fun. I smile when I win a snipe, and I share my winnings of goodies with my friends. They are all pretty amazed and always ask me to try snipe for them when they see an item they like. Life is good?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / yelleow connexion

good advise Nunz…. do you have any other complications using 10.10.4 at all? I am not keen on upgrading my setup as it’s working so well for me so far…. but just curious as I also have multiple systems, and I could upgrade if I want or have to, but hate to change anything if nothing is broken, don’t fix it, right?
