Question:

hi,could you set up your bid 3 second or 2 second before listing ended, If only 5 second, I still could be outbid

Reply:

We used to have the "time left to bid" set up to where you could schedule a snipe to execute as close as 2 seconds before the end of an auction, but changed the minimum to five seconds instead.

If there is any sort of delay in communication between Hidbid and eBay, your bid will probably not be placed when your snipe is scheduled to execute with only two seconds left in the auction. Also, we figure that five seconds does not give a manual sniper enough time to react to your bid.

Another reason we change the minimum to five seconds, if two bids are the same or if there is not enough of a difference between them to meet the minimum bid increment, the first bid in wins. So, ideally, you want your bid to be placed too late in the auction for manual snipers to react, but before any other automated snipes.
