Bidding for a bargain is all part ofrepparttar exciting eBay experience. But what can really disappoint is when you’re all set to win that fantastic, gold plated gizmo and someone else just beats your bid inrepparttar 144821 final seconds.

This trixy technique is called ‘sniping’ and is perfectly legal. It’s very annoying when someone does it to you but it can be a most effective way to win auctions…but only if you’re able to keep a constant eye onrepparttar 144822 auction and have a computer fired up and ready to go.

But, we’re faced with a problem. We can’t always be on hand each time a selected auction reaches its final moments. It can mean having to log in many times each day or perhaps even inrepparttar 144823 middle ofrepparttar 144824 night. Well,repparttar 144825 answer could be to use special sniping software.

Okay, so what is sniping software and how does it work?

Basically, it’s a clever little programme which you can set up in advance to place a last minute auction bid on your behalf. Some sniping programs can be downloaded. With others, you place your bid through a special sniping website. You can then wander off, play golf or whatever, knowing that your bid will be made - inrepparttar 144826 dying moments - for that ’must have’ special item.

And it’s all very simple to activate.

You just enterrepparttar 144827 details of each auction you’re interested in (i.e.repparttar 144828 auction number) andrepparttar 144829 maximum amount you’re prepared to pay forrepparttar 144830 item. And here’srepparttar 144831 really sneaky part! The program then lodges your bid inrepparttar 144832 very last SECONDS ofrepparttar 144833 auction. This means that anyone bidding against you just hasn’trepparttar 144834 time to place a counter bid. Auto snipers claim to be around 95 – 99 per cent successful in enabling you to win auctions this way.

There are various sniping programs and services available. Most will charge you a small free but will allow you a free trial of their software first. I’ve used them and won some important auctions. So my advice is to have a free trial run. You’ve nothing too lose.
