RE: [DMCForum] Re: New Orelands D



Agreed.  Most people "snipe" in order to make it look like there was
little interest in the item, in order to keep the bidding and price
down.  Bid your max, if you were "sniped" then it's just a fact that the
winner was willing to pay more than you.

Sniping doesn't help anybody win an auction. They win because they
were willing to pay more than you.

Example: You want a DeLorean that's listed, so you enter a bid of
$15,000. A sniper gets it at the last second for $15,500. You say,
"Well, that's not fair. I would have gone $16,000." Then you should
have bid $16,000 in the first place. If you weren't willing to pay
$16k, then you wouldn't have won the car regardless of the snipe. If
the sniper hadn't sniped he still would have won.

When bidding on eBay, you should always bid the highest amount you're
willing to pay for the item the first time.

30 days, I believe.
