Okay, this was weird. It said there was an error sniping but it still ended up bidding?

I was watching it in horror b/c only a few seconds were left and I didn’t have time to bid manually. But when I went into Ebay, it said that I won the auction.

Greetings,
Yeah, that’s because JBidwatcher is having some trouble recognizing the post-bid page. (eBay changed the wording…)

I’m glad it worked out, though!
