I started with
Snipe Swipe -  Ebay Auction Sniper. Try it Free

But I now prefer to use
http://www.auctionsniper.com/

Both give you introductory free snipes

I've been using http://www.powersnipe.com and it's been good, but it has a lot of quirks and annoyances (I use the on-line version, not the downloadable client).  It HAS worked quite well though, so I can't complain with that, but it lacks features like "Show me all the auctions I'll lose" and "Delete all auctions I will lose" and things like that.  Just very poor presentation options.

Guess I am still an old timer. . . I do all my snipes by hand.  It keeps everything interesting (and still pumps me up with a tiny adrenaline rush when I win something I really want!)   8)

Ah, a craftsman.  :wink: I do prefer to do it the old fashioned way myself.  But the sites mean that you don't have to stay up all night for those international bargains.  I've tried setting my alarm a couple of times.  But generally just turn over and go back to sleep.  :cry:

Guess I have a slight advantage.  I work overnight (and have internet access) and between stuff at home, my wife and 6 month old daughter I only sleep from 6pm - 10 pm every day. . .

I'm a walking zombie, but always around to bid if I need to. . .

:)

I gave up freehand snipes a few months ago ... too bad on the heart.
:P

Also, when I tried putting in honest bids early, other people (cough) were using my bids as personal research and shopping lists.  So that didn't work well either.

I'm now using Powersnipe, which doesn't always win of course and has limited features, but it's web-based, no installation.  Quick and painless and very easy to use.  I cut and paste all my eBay info in about 5 minutes a week, and just let it run.  Wins are higher with the same expenditure.  Stress is lower.  But the fun is mostly gone.
:)

I lost, too. Tried the manual snipe just for kicks. Oh well.

But I did snipe poor old aneoth off a shrinked GAZ Shadow Elves... :D

I prefer the old manual method myself. But I am gonna look at one of the online deals. Just can't keep the late hours...


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I would have certain problems giving out my ebay credentials to an online system. Somehow it makes me feel uneasy just thinking about it :)

Anyone of you guys that uses this kind of service for quite some time now? I wonder how the overall opinion on those online bidding services is around here...

I may have been (ahem) guilty of that maneuver on a few occasions. . .  :oops:  Not that I don't do my own searches.  Of course, I still use the "Big Two" resellers on a regular basis. . . both of whom love to put in bids at the earliest opportunity.

I`ve been using them for some years now and never had any problems, except perhaps that the site was down once when they were changing the layout.
