Im curious what exactly goes on when JBW hits the snipe time (currently 5 seconds for me). As you may know when placing a bid the manual way ebay will ask for a confirmation before it places a bid. So my question is, does JBW place the bid prior to the snipe-time, and then only confirm it when the snipe-time comes? If it doesn’t I really think it aught to as that will shave off a few more seconds and make low snipe times much more reliable. Also, does JBW make sure ebay hasn’t logged you out right before (1-2mins prior) it places a snipe? Im not well versed in java so I can’t tell by looking at the code and I appreciate all feedback. Thanks
