On the other side of the coin:

Early bidders really annoy me. They inflate the price for everybody - and I much prefer the last few exciting minutes, when you're plotting exactly when to unleash your much considered bid.

Although - It's really painful when you wait 10 days to bid on an item and you get a connection error in the final minute - all part and parcel of such a high-risk manouvre. Don't use a sniper though, prefer old school F5'ing.

i wait till there is 30 secs left, start a stopwatch and when it hits 4 secs i submit the bid :lol:

Yeah it depends on what the item is, if it's a collectible that's rarely seen on there I get my bid in 20-30 secs from the end, just incase I need to bid once or twice again to secure the item.

Can't beat that feeling you get when you beat someone by a 50p increment in the final second of the bid.

In other news: found out this morning that my ebay/paypal accounts were hacked :( Some individual had sold 2 lots of nearly a £1000 worth of supermarket vouchers on there:S

i'm a last minute bidder too :oops: although i quite often forget to go on ebay to bid until the auction has finished on something i really want :-(

[url]www.justsnipe.com[/url] it's the only way to bid!
#26
You should be more concerned if there are no last minute bidders there to boost up the sell prices in your auctions.
#27
It IS annoying as ive lost out on many items like that BUT just play them at their own game.
Last week i managed to bid on a sony handycam with 1 second left ... and won it for 55.09 - well chuffed :)
