Hi,

First, JBidwatcher is a great app. Thanks Morgan for your continued work with it!

A silly question:

If I put an opening bid of say, $10, on an auction (for example, to get a “buy it now” option to go away) such that I’m the “highest bidder,” can I then set a snipe of some amount more to [hopefully] defend against some other sniper at the end of the auction? So, in the example scenario, the auction holds at $10 with me as the winning bidder until the last 10 seconds or so, when the snipers all jump in. If I set a snipe at $20, will it still fire even if JBidwatcher still sees me as the “highest” bidder at $10?

Best,

Chris

Yes, JBW will still snipe even if you are the current high bidder.
