eBay Sniping Script - bustin 5 knots - 12-05-2011 09:34 PM

I'm sure many of you use gixen, and many of you probably use greasemonkey/userscripts, so here's a really helpful script for sniping, it puts a snipe link on each item to make sniping faster and easier.

you know when you think you have an auction won with 10 seconds to go and somehow mysteriously you end up losing? It's called sniping. IMO it's weak.

How does it work? I mean I understand the overall concept, but how exactly does it work? How do you even know it will?

I do agree with ben.. but its the only way to actually give you an edge from other people that use it.. Ok travis heres how it works. say for example you got this really cool card on the bay.. its set at no reserve its worth a bunch of money and you know this.. the card is currently going for 30 bucks it's got maybe an hr left and you know in your head its worth a bill or two.. so instead of you driving up the price on the auction and getting into a pissing match with someone else that really wants it. you just go to an off website and tell it Im willing to spend atleast lets say 100 bucks..and within 5ms when the auction your about to win is over. it goes BLAM!! outbids the other people and thats if the other bidders didnt put there price over what you told the website.. ta da! Its all yours. You also have options to give it a lead or bid increment so u wont lose. I probably just touched on the overall concept that you said you already know, but hopefully not. PM me if you got any questions

Completely agree!!! Happened to me just last night. If somebody wants something bad, then place a dang max bid. I was the only bid for the auction and lost the very very last second. I could not do anything about it. Just drives me crazy.

Then you didnt listen to your own advice and place your max bid.


RE: eBay Sniping Script - abcoltsfan - 12-20-2011 10:14 PM

Actually I did place a max bid for the auction in which I was the only bidder until the very last second. I think it is ridiculous for somebody to set up a computer program to watch a auction but wait till the very end and have the program bid for you. My point is if you want something. Do it yourself and place a bid whether its early or late in the auction. People can't place bids in milliseconds but computers can, therefore in my opinion making it completely unfair. Either way I have moved on a while ago, just wanted to give my point of view.
