can you share some info how the bidding takes place? do you run a GET command? a POST? via HTTP or HTTPS? What are the paramenters?

Max Price etc?

Which java file has it?

I use POST, usually, although there are some complications with some of the eBay pages.

Depending on if the item is dutch or not, you need a quantity, in bidding, also.

If you’re looking at changing JBidwatcher to support a CJ ID, please hold off. I have a request in to eBay to talk about doing anything like that, if it’s legit. It has to be entirely above board.

I also need to make sure it’s done cleanly, so it’s legit, and…well, to use Google’s phrase, ‘Not Evil’.

I enjoy, and in fact treasure, the trust of my users, and it’s important to me that I keep it. Anything like this that involves making revenue off of their use of JBidwatcher has a high chance of damaging that trust, so needs to be handled as best I can.

Dutch bidding? Nice didn’t know you could get that! Very handy for wanted stuff!

I’ll do a search a ebay UK straight away!
