Why is this happening? Is it not jBidWatcher’s purpose to WATCH and update these things?

It seems more often than not that sniping does not work as intended. I have won far more bids just bidding the old way of placing a maximum bid in days or weeks before an auction ends. Sniping seems to work great if I am the only person bidding on an item.

On this particular item I had about 13 or 14 items which were set up on multisnipe most of which were set up all on one day. I lost the bid on all but one of the similar items (different but I didn’t care which one I won as long as I won one of them). I had one remaining item which would not end until several days in the future.

As new items were put on eBay I added them to the one remaining multisnipe but each of them had earlier ending dates than the one remaining item. This particular item (on which jBidWatcher refused to bid) was one of the new items added to that older remaining multisnipe group which only had one more bid to go.

I have a few more items remaining in this multisnipe group, all of which are due to end before that one original remaining item of which the auction does not end for a few more days. At present the prices are excellent as was this one above. I hope jBidWatcher will do what it is supposed to do.

From a few minutes ago:
two items. (1)

And once again the sniping failed for exactly the same reason. If this is what JBidWatcher is going to do, it is next to useless. In fact worse than that because it takes up memory resources in the computer.
