Is auction sniping legal?

While some people disapprove of auction sniping, it is not forbidden by the rules of many auction sites.

Does automatic bidding beat sniping?

Remember that sniping isn’t always going to work. If an item has a huge number of bidders or a single very committed bidder, you’re likely to get outbid by eBay’s automatic bidding system. Sniping is best used on smaller items that aren’t seeing a huge amount of competition.

How do you stop an auction sniper?

Implementing a reserve price for items up for auction will prevent snipers from winning lots for a low price. A reserve can either be visible to all users or invisible (i.e. participants are unaware of the amount of reserve price and whether their current bid is above or below reserve).

What are bid increments on auction sniper?

The bid increment is the amount by which a bid will be raised each time the current bid is outdone. Its amount depends on the current high bid. For example, the knockdown bid (starting price) is $1 and your maximum bid is $20. If the auction is over and no one has placed a higher bid, you will pay $1.25 for the lot.

Bid sniping—including the use of software that places bids for you—is allowed on eBay, but it doesn’t guarantee you’ll win an auction. Other members may be using the same tactic, may have set up automatic bidding, or may simply react quickly and place a higher bid before the auction ends.
