Why do people...................

Why do people insist on bidding long before an auction ends and so forcing the price up for when I step in with my snipe? Why can't they just wait till near the end and take their chance. It really gets on my tit!

I could understand were that the case but these people are bidding hundreds of pounds on an item. I can't understand why they need to bid so early. Why can't they see what they're doing?

I just use the 1 and 3 day auctions when I do use ebay, it's always the last couple hours that the bids tend to come in

Could be I suppose but it's £800 now and would the seller risk a bid which could end with him or his ally winning the auction and so ending up not selling but still having to pay charges and commission?

yes. if the item is worth say £1000 you would want a bid close enough to make it seem like you are getting it cheap but not too close as to avoid a total bid

Only sellers should find them annoying. If a buyer gets annoyed it's their own fault. They're available free for everyone.

This was my 3rd attempt. Got a second chance offer on one at £1150 but seller didn't answer my emails. Managed to get a phone number and spoke to a woman who was looking for the seller who had done a runner with all her stock! So bit of a lucky escape there! Seller had150 feedback at 100% too, so it just shows that feedback isn't everything!

I don't really buy or sell but I can imagine if I was a buyer and thought I'd won something I'd get annoyed if some so and so came along at the last minute and snuck it from under my nose, haha.

It's just an auto bidder. You tell it your maximum bid and it just sits in the shadows and bids all it needs to to win the auction. I use this one Gixen

I'd be more upset, the fact you only have one tit?

True but not everyone is aware of these things- anyway as I said I don't really buy or sell on ebay, just playing devil's advocate :thumbsup:
