How to Avoid Losing An Auction to eBay Snipers

First of all, what the heck is "sniping" on eBay and other auction sites?

Well, eBay sniping is an event which occurs when a bidding session is about to end. At this point, some crazy yahoo rushes in and bids a little higher than the highest bid just as the clock is running out of time. If it works, he or she ends up with the winning bid.

Sniping is technically against the rules at eBay, but this doesn't always seem to slow the snipers down!

In most cases, even if you report a case of sniping, there is still a good chance the sniper will get away with it, and you will have lost the item that you wanted to win so badly anyway. Unfortunately, in order to avoid losing the items you want to the activity of snipers at eBay, you have to take on the sniper mentality. You also need to become a sniper yourself, but do it in a way that will not violate eBay’s rules.

Sniping, without "sniping" can properly be done in one of two ways.

The first technique is the safest, but not necessarily the easiest.

In this scenario, you simply keep up with the item you are bidding on. Make a note of the date and time that the auction will end, and make sure that you are in front of your computer and logged into the auction a comfortable length of time before that specific time that the auction will end. The objective of your wait is to either bid higher than the highest bid during the last few seconds - which is what snipers do - or to simply make sure that you are not outbid by a sniper.

Remember that sniping is against the rules, so, first of all, you should log in about thirty or forty five minutes before the bidding ends, and get your bid up until it is the highest bid. At that point, all you need to do is to keep an eye out to make sure that nobody else raises the bid. If you have already been logged in for a while, this cannot be considered sniping.

However, if you are using this method, you must be acutely aware of the existence and the actions of automatic bidders. Despite your best efforts, it is very hard to bid against people who are using bidding software. That software has been designed specifically for the purpose of sniping, and your chances of manually outbidding the software are very slim to none – which leads us to the second method of sniping – Sniping Services.

Snipping services are becoming very easy to find online, and they are also relatively inexpensive. You can even purchase your own sniping software. If you happen to want to become a sniper, purchasing your own software is usually the best way to go if you bid on a lot of items. You simply set up the software, tell it which auction to watch and what the highest price you are willing to bid is, and let it do the work - just remember that it is against the rules, and, while eBay seldom enforces this rule, you are definitely running the risk of being banned from eBay.

It's one of those funny situations. Sniping is bad if someone does it to you, but if you use it yourself to win bids, it can seem like a wonderful thing. On the other hand, it may not be considered very ethical by many others. After all, outbidding someone is one thing, sniping is something altogether different in many people's eyes!
