pretty sure you can sign up for alerts so that you get notified when shit is gettin close to bein finito. you watch it count down and click with like a second left.

 

i dunno much about ebay other than thats whats up to house/dump merch.

:confused:

they've even changed the bidding format (which they did ages ago) so you can place a maximum bid without having to commit to paying that much, until another bidder puts you at that higher amount by placing a bid themselves.

 

so just put the max you're willing to pay.

The last few minutes/seconds of the auction are pretty fast paced, and I guess a good way to try and win. If you're that desperate, make sure you got a good internet connection and fast finger!

fuck all that finger bullshit

 

just decide the MAX you are willing to pay and put that shit down

the computer will automatically place bids for you as people try to outbid you

(and the bids the comuter places will be in dollar increments above the last bid, so you won't automatically go to that MAX amount unless someone places a bid higher than the MAX you already entered)

we all know how ebay works symbols, and that would be the best way to do things... if there wasnt some asshole sniper on every bid that i dont snipe on. you pretty much have to snipe now.

The only way I win at Ebay is with the "buy it now" option, other then that I dont got time to sit in front of a computer and watch that shit

^^ yep.

 

in fact, ebay really has no thrill or inticment for me other than to find random things that pop in my head that would/couldnt find around me because of that very fact of not having time to sit around and bid on a scratched ipod for 2/3rds the price of a new one.

9 times out of 10 the bid will change prices in the last 60 seconds. track a couple bids with similar items; they will all end up within 5% of each other. so if you are wondering how much you can get on a sell or how much something your bidding on will end up, that's the way to do it. trust, you're not gunna get lucky on one item and have it slip through the crack for 99 cents. doesn't happen

i find that bidding highest is incredibly effective

 

 

 

 

i watch shit, if i'm around when its in the last few minutes, i'll put in a bid in the last 30 seconds. if the most you're willing to pay is a dead even number you won't win, say the bid is 50 bucks, try 53.79--odd numbers like that, most bidders increase in even amounts and by bidding odd numbers as such you increase your chances.

 

also, watch for a week or two.

i watched a set of preacher 1-66 go for $175, $150, and $130. i kept watching and found a set that was 2-66 and bought it for $79, and then bought issue 1 for $13. better deals will come and go, if you don't need it NOW, then don't buy it now.

you will never win that way. you really have to sneak in the last few seconds and bid. otherwise it gives people days to match or top your bid. all that shit does is drive the price up... all the real ebayers and people that win shit bid in the last 15 or less seconds.

watch how much prices and bids change in the last 30 seconds or less. thats when people make moves...

also, you can beat snipes providing you bids are higher then what the "sniper" bids...

oh so youre one of the people who drive prices through the roof.

when i see something i like i dont go back to it till the last hour.

 

i never unnecessarily bid on shit and knock prices up for no reason, i dont know why there are bids when an item has 5 days left, it makes no sense.

 

*edit, oh yeah i use to use e-snipe it bids within the last few seconds automatically first few times are free then you have to pay, or so i remember.

what are automatic bids?

i always get outbid then the item is still for sale the next day.

im pretty sure the vendor has it rigged.

I'm sure someone prolly already said it but, wait for that shit to countdown from 30 seconds and then BLAOW. Blow up dude's spot on some holographic football cards or antique dildos, whatever the fuck you tryin to get.

It's a good thing whoever you bid against never thought to change the bid at the last second too.

Only the secret snipers of Ch.0 know the technique.

 

The problem is that others will use the max bid technique, rendering your sniping skill useless.

 

 

use the max bid function and get on with your life.
