That is why I bid what it is worth. The snipe can be fun but I feel the wasted time. If someone wants it, bid on it. I am surprised they haven't done anything about it. The whole thing is geared for the seller. Mystery bidders.The Sunday night ending. Just they way they separate lots makes me minimize my bidding. I guess it is just give and take.
So in the end lets say that you bid $40 on something and I come and snipe it for $41.
What your saying is that even if I put a $41 bid on it seconds after you put a $40 bid on it you wouldn't have countered anyway since you put your limit on it?
So snipe or no snipe I would have won it. As you all ready put your max in on what you thought it was worth.
Me I don't bid till the end so it doesn't drive the price up. And a last second bid may win or may not win because of what someone else might have bid more anyway.
I agree you on mystery bidders or some who look new to bidding. It might be someone just trying to get more $ for the seller.
Time ending? Thats up to the seller and with him listing so close, hes counting on you to put a larger bid as you would like all of the set. When I see something like that I just don't bid on it as I would want the whole set or none.
Unless I am just interested in one particular item.
I like sniping.
TJ you know you can get a snipe program that will let you bid on all of the items that are listed so close together. Even if your computer is turned off.
There's a free version that lets you snipe up to a certain amount during a week.
Another version you can buy that lets you snipe unlimited per week.
Though even with snipe you have to put in a max of what your willing to spend.
So in the end snipe or no snipe your still putting in the max you will spend.
