To be honest, I feel sort of silly when I think about the things I used to do when I was utterly addicted to eBay. I have actually lost track of the times I stayed awake well past midnight in order to place a last-minute bid, and in many of those cases I ended up being the one and only bidder.
I think the straw that broke the camel’s back (IE, the one that drove my brother nuts because the computer was in his room and he had to stay awake as well) was the time I waited until 4:00 AM to bid for a copy of The Who’s “Live At Leeds” CD. I won the auction alright, but I fooled around too much (and too long). That was the end of my bidding sprees. And that is a good thing, because if I still were hooked on that I would put a service like GoSnipe to a frantic use.
You see, GoSnipe.com is an online tool that takes care of placing eBay bids automatically. It does so in the very last few seconds of an auction, and the bidding wars that I always feared (and that I seldom, saw, frankly) become simply non-existent. In theory, this should result in more wins at lower prices. And a very nice feature is that goSnipe can likewise be employed to group related bids together. This means that you can individualize several auctions, and if one of these is won then the other pending bids are automatically canceled.
GoSnipe.com In Their Own Words
“Win more eBay auctions at the price you want. GoSnipe places your bid at the last possible second.”
Why GoSnipe.com It Might Be A Killer
People who are addicted to eBay just can’t go wrong with such as system. I especially like the way you can group bids and have them automatically canceled when the first one comes through.
