Absentee Bidding

  1. I was wondering if anyone has used those absentee bidding services. Are they reliable and do they work by just maxing up your bid? Do they bid up until the last minute? I'm one of those people who likes to bid a hours before the end, and sometimes I just don't get there. Does anyone use these services? Just wondering! Thanks ladies :heart: :yes:
  2. eBay will proxy bid for you anyway, but the sniping programs are about placing your highest bid seconds before the auction closes so no one else can nibble away and make the price go up, or worse, create a bidding war.

    The one I use has messed up a few times, but it works about 95% of the time so I'm happy (it's free). A family member uses a program he paid for, and it's worked perfectly.
  3. There have been lots of threads on this, pros and cons, but I think the upshot is that the majority of people seem to use snipe services.
  4. I use one if I know I won't be at the computer.
    Justsnipe.com is free and has worked fine for me:yes:
  5. Yeah, thanks to Swanky, I use Justsnipe too :lol:
  6. ^ wow.it's free?..thanks..
  7. I luv using a snipe service ...I get better bargains..You can put your bid in days before end of auction and forget about it...
  8. It was thanks to this forum that I first became aware of these services and have used Auction Sniper on a trial basis twice now with tremendous success. Definitely a convert.
  9. i use biddingscheduler. it's free too! i think it's much better than bidding way before an auction ends.
