Saw a lovely dress from M&S thats not available on the website, so im assuming its not in the shops anymore either, it was my size, no bids, only a few hours left on the auction, so i bid the asking amount, then went about my business and had ebay countdown open(which is meant to alert me when someone else places a bid), so im surfing the net, waiting for the auction to end, got a bit distracted, then i get an alert to say id been outbid...WHEN THE AUCTION ENDED!!!
i know i lost stuff by 50c ozzie dollars grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Hope it the dress shows up again on eBay for you!
eBay has become really unreliable lately I've found. You know when you're watching something and they're meant to send you a "don't miss" email when there's 24 hours to go? Sometimes get them, sometimes don't. It's so annoying
you have an option of entering a max bid so if someone else bids and you get outbidded it will keep outbidding them automatically until it reaches your max.
Yeah, i know you can enter a max bid, but ive noticed sometimes that can really bump up the price of an item as some pleb tries to outbid your max bid, which i hate.
Girls I swear by esnipe - if you notice on ebay everytime you enter a bid then someone else counter bids etc etc basically you are just increasing the bid for everyone - instead go onto esnipe - put in your maximum bid and then esnipe automatically goes in in the last few seconds of the auction and bids on it it for you - it will only go as high as it needs to go and it will never go over what you've set out as your highest bid - I have used esnipe for yrs and won so many auctions thankfully with it....worth a try...
