Question:

This is my first time using a sniper service. The item listed at $60 now and I placed a bid at $60 at hidbid. Then I received this email "Maximum bid exceeded" SO do I have to put in more than $60? how much more? Should I manually bid $60 now and put in more than $60 at hidbid? Your help is much appreciated!

"SO do I have to put in more than $60?"

Well, only if you want to pay more for the item.


"how much more?"

Well, that depends on how much you want to pay. The minimum bid increment for an item with a current price of $25-$100 is $1, so you'd have to bid at least $61, but I'd add some change, say $61.29. For more info, see the Hidbid FAQ page, namely #39, and:

"Should I manually bid $60 now and put in more than $60 at hidbid?"

I don't see a benefit in doing that. I suggest that you decide what your absolute max bid for the item is, schedule a snipe for that amount, and forget about it.
