Hi there,

First of all, thanks a bunch for this program, it works like a charm for me , and is very affordable to boot ;) .

I just sniped an item from ebay; with another item, from the same seller, that closed a few minutes later, sniping failed.

The first auction I had listed in ‘my ebay’ , the second one I’d just dragged from my browser to to the Jbid window without adding it to the ‘my ebay’ listing first.

In Jbid’s search manager, ‘my ebay’ is the only subjekt listed.

Just 2 cents from me, don’t know if that’s of use …

Depending on when you did this, you may be falling prey to the problem with adult logins.

Disable ‘Registered Adult’ in your eBay configuration, if you have it on. If it’s checked, sniping it will fail, because the log in process is different for registered adults, and eBay broke/changed that log in process (actually just the URLs to start it) yesterday.

Hi Morgan,

Thanks for taking the time to reply; I just realized, that actually for both auctions the jbidwatcher failed, so my earlier remarks are nonsense…

Keep up the good work,
