Private Auctions on Ebay
Posted 04 May 2003 - 03:03 PM
One thing with sniping is you either get the item or you dont. There is no second chance. If you are using a bidding program and ebay blocks it or it does not function properly you loose the item.
Remember the old saying "When in Rome do as the Romans"
What bothers me is when you bid on an item and then the seller ends the auction early because one of our "collector friends" has made an offer the seller could not refuse thus ending all of our chances at the item.

We didn't think about people in different time zones or that they were going to be away when making our comments.
Guess we were talking about folks that do it on purpose just for spite. You know they don't want it but don't want you to have it type of thing.
We could do a whole page on people that contact the seller and have them end the aution early but we have said enough today.

I knew your ebay name from this site. I think you posted your email address and it seemed to be the same. That's how I figured it out. I'm always the last to know. Swisslady and Lauderlover and Pamela with the compacts are the others,because they showed their names on this site. The rest of you I don't have a clue.

If there were 5 'hits' at the same time would that do something like crash the system or what.
I expect all you computer buffs will shoot me down here with all the technical know how.

and presumably whoever gets in first, before the auction ends, with the highest bid wins.
Not sure what the order of the bids would be in the unlikely (but possible)event of a few people using the service for the same auction with the same highest bid!
