Why is it good at all to place bids late?

The basic advantage is that nobody but yourself knows your maximum biduntil the end of the auction. Placing your bid early may encourage other bidders to bid more than originally intended. This can't happen if you place your bid shortly before end. Also, placing your bid late keeps yourself from bid...

Isn't it better to bid twice?

Definitely not! Consider the value of the item you want to purchase before you place a bid. Then place exactly the amount seeming fair to you. Don't be bugged if the item is sold at a price slightly higher than your bid. This doesn't mean you'd have won the item for that price since you don't see th...

You have been outbid.

This notification informs you that you haven't won the item since another bid was placed higher than yours. Still you've had a share in pricing. The winning bidder now has to pay at least as much as you have bid. And due to the higher price of sale the eBay commission of the seller is higher as well...

The auction has already ended.

Something went wrong: Your bid could not be placed before the end of the item. Following causes may be responsible: - The auction was ended early by the item seller. - The approach for bidding was too short. - The internet connection was used to full capacity, by this the bidding process was too slo...

Minimum bid was not hit.

A bid will only be considered by eBay if it's by the required bid increment higher than the displayed bid. This bid is called minimum bid. The bid increments vary and differ depending on the eBay country domains. Find the bid increments for eBay USA here: http://pages.ebay.com/help/buy/bid-increment...

What does 'Group' mean?

Grouping items is most important for bargain hunters. As soon as SchnapperPro has successfully bid on one grouped item the program won't bid on other items of the same group. Or the other way round: SchnapperPro will bid on the items of a group until you are finally successful with your maximum bid....
