Thanks for coding such an excellent program Morgan, but I have a major gripe with Jbidwatcher at the moment. None of my bids work, although the information on the panel is displayed correctly.
I’m attempting to bid (the config page is set to
but everytime I bid, the error report gives me a webpage that is directed to the US ebay website. I’m still logged in and it shows the item i’m currently bidding on, but the Ebay page is clearly US. So what am i doing wrong? any help would be appreciated

JBidWatcher (1.0.2)

I have the identical complaint, though for USA eBay. I’ve never enjoyed a successful attempt at sniping.
For instance, in this auction (300179942877) it begins preparing the snipe (I set the advance time to 120 seconds to give it lots of time), then simply gives up. JBidwatcher 1.0.2 and it was part of a multi-snipe.

OK, I tested against auction 150194149783.

It didn’t work and this is the Information:

This is part of the Last Error page,
but I can’t see anywhere on the page an obvious error message….

OK, never mind…I had the wrong password!

But it does bring up another point. I was fooled for days in thinking it was logging in correctly because it said it retrieved the login cookie. Couldn’t it test immediately if it can login or not, instead of waiting ’till the last seconds—literally—at a snipe?
