Comment Topic: eBay Chat / Find auctions with spelling mistakes

This is a great concept, but I always get this result:

Page Not Responding
The eBay page or feature you are attempting to access is not responding.

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Tips and Tricks / Snipe Timing

eBay (I presume) gives that message if the winning bid produced in the last minute, even if yours was placed after it. You weren’t ‘outbid in the last minute’, your bid was below the existing high bidders hidden max bid, which was placed in the last minute (but before yours).

Thanks, Morgan, that does help. The deceptive message from eBay threw me off.

Sniping with jBidWatcher is great!

Thanks, Morgan, I think the truth is slowly starting to sink in. I’m finally getting the principle that it’s the highest bidder who wins, but it’s the second highest who sets the price. It just irks me to be the second highest! :)

Here’s one where eBay says, “You were outbid at the last minute”: 150172788212. I’d like to know how that one turned out, because I hated losing it.

I’m going to have to go from 10 to 5. I’ve gotten out-sniped by one increment several times now.

Comment Topic: General Sniping Discussion / Recommended Amounts?

I had a max bid for $15.00 on an item (before I learned to snipe with JBidwatcher), and I got beat by $15.01. I thought the increments were more than that, but oh well.

Have you found certain increments to be better than others? Is it better to snipe $15.01 than $15.00? What about $15.02… you see what I mean?

Comment Topic: JBidwatcher Help / Check Mark Icon in 1.0.2?

After getting sniped out of a deal, I searched for programs I could use in Linux. This one seems the best by far, although I would prefer on that ran on a remote server.

I’ve already used it to successfully snipe a product.

I also really like the multi snipe feature.

I can’t find in the docs just what the green check mark means in an auction entry.
