While sitting in a riviting panel discussion at mesh last week, my pal Mira was shoe shopping on eBay. Actually, PowerSnipe Auction Sniper was doing the heavy lifting for her.
For US$59.99 a year (or $45.99, if you order by June 5), PowerSnipe will do your bidding for you. All you need to do is let it know which item you’re bidding on and your top bid amount. It will even ask you if you want to increase it if another bid has gone higher. Ideally, it’s supposed to help you swoop down and make the final bid in the last moments of the auction. At US$60 a pop, it’s not cheap but if you do a lot of eBay shopping, Mira tells me it’s worth the investment.
I didn’t know you could subscribe to a service to do your bidding for you on eBay. Did you? How cool is that? Have any other tips for winning online auctions? Leave a comment.
