I had 2 scheduled snipes today that obviously did not go through to ebay. My bid is not even recorded at ebay. The items were won by someone who bid a considerably lower price. My profile and password are correct. Why would I not have won if my snipe price was much higher? This is not the first time this has happened. Also, is there a one item limit if I am sniping more several items that close at the same time? Thanks
There have been snipes successfully executing today, so it seems that there isn't a site wide problem.
I checked the snipe response of the items that you had snipes scheduled for.
# ****** requires that a bidder have a Paypal account and eBay determined (correctly or incorrectly) that you don't have one.
If you do have a PayPal account, then it seems that a glitch at eBay or PayPal caused that.
All I can say right now, before our programmer check things out, is to be sure Hidbid has your correct eBay info (which, apparently it does) and to leave the "Time left to bid" # at the default 5 seconds or increase it- do not decrease it.
As to your second question, I imagine that there is a limit but we could never test to reach it because it is at least in the hundreds, so there shouldn't be a problem with that (our programmer may be able to come up with a theoretical number).
