Snipe Service Providers

Snipe service providers place bids on auctions for you within seconds of the auction close. Instead of placing your bids directly with eBay or other auction sites, you place them through a snipe service provider. These sites store the information you submit until a few seconds before the end of the auction you are interested in. At that point, the service provider places a bid on your behalf.

The final bidding process works exactly the same way as if you placed the bid manually, so all bidding rules apply, including proxy bidding. The end result is your bid is placed at the last possible moment.

You will need to share your User ID and Password with these sites in order for them to enter bids for you on your behalf.

There are no guarantees that you will win. You are still bound by the bidding rules. A higher proxy bidder can still outbid you or another sniper can also outbid you. You still need to bid your max and hope for the best. Your sniping service or auction site could also be experiencing server issues at the last few moments of the auction which could cause a bid to not be placed.

There are several advantages to placing snipe bids...

  • Save time and money.
  • Sniping reduces bidding wars by masking interest in auction items until the last possible moment.
  • Sniping reduces the urge to get caught up emotionally in the bidding frenzy.
  • Your bid will be placed any time of the day or night, even when you're not at home.
  • Some snipe service providers allow you to cancel your bid up until the last several minutes or seconds of an auction so you never have to retract a bid on the auction site.
  • Some snipe service providers have bid groups that allow you to combine multiple bids into one group and automatically cancel the remaining bids after the first one wins.

Below are a few snipe service providers for you to check out if you're interested in sniping. Best of luck!
