    But they won't know what my maximum bid is until they go past that amount, that's my understanding. I can go away and forget about it. If I end up getting outbid, hey-ho, I'd already offered as much as I was prepared to pay.

    I can see the logic in your method Geoff, but if I had to rely on this tired old laptop being quick enough to do a swoop in the closing seconds, I'd be disappointed more times than not.

    Forget the past, it's gone. And don't worry about the future, it doesn't exist. There is only NOW.

    Ebay sniper apps don't even need the bidder to be around to outbid you in the dying couple of seconds of an auction - don't use a sniper myself but certainly lost out to them many a time!

    If you came across someone using a sniper app, and you were using one yourself, who wins?

    The winner will be the one who has the highest bid limit.

    I don't bid for much on eBay these days, but when I did I would make my bid within the last 5 seconds. And like Geoff, I set my maximum bid, and if I was outbid, then c'est la vie. I was rarely outbid however.
