A lot of times I put something in my watched items on eBay and end up forgetting to bid and miss out. I have also see shill bidding take place on eBay for items that should go for less than the selling price as a result I am an unashamed sniper.
I use a service called AuctionSniper and down on the left navigation, towards the bottom, under "Insert Cheap Plugs Here" is a banner link. If you sign up please click thru this banner as I can earn free snipes.
Anyway the real reason of this post is to tell you about a new feature available directly thru eBay called Snipe It Now. For more information, AFTER clicking my banner link, come back and click this link to learn how to set up your browser to use Snip It Now.
