a lot of people think that, but I don't know if it is true.if you bid during the last 10 seconds than people won't outbid you!
If another person did place a large bid, than you will have only a few seconds to decide if you want to increase your bid again (and again). I don't like making a decision in just a few seconds when it comes to money, so I never "snipe", I just bid what I would want to pay for the items.
On rare items there usually are only a small amount people that are willing to pay a relatively large amount. If all people try to snipe at the very last moment, than the item will end up at a high price, but the maximum bid will be somewhat low for most of the time.
Now if 1 bidder does place a large bid relatively early on, then the maximum bid will still be low for most of the time, but any sniper will have a hard time getting the item because he has no idea what the maximum bid might be. And you can only bid so many times in 10 seconds.
That way I got a very rare Samsung Nuon N504 player for only 30,- euros and the ultra rare Iron Soldier 3 for 60,- euros .
Thats true but most of the time people decide they want to bid more after someone else outbids them. I just enter my maximum during the last 15 seconds that way it prevents people constantly bidding more when someone outbids them. they should just enter there maximum straight away! but its better for the seller of course if people bid early and often. I have no problem winning things using this method and in any case its always the highest bidder who is the winner.XCLTempesT wrote: Now if 1 bidder does place a large bid relatively early on, then the maximum bid will still be low for most of the time, but any sniper will have a hard time getting the item because he has no idea what the maximum bid might be.
