# ************ eBay: ************. My snipe says error. However it did place a bid but it shows 2 bid's at the same bid. What happened?
I don't know why the error message e-mail message was sent out, as you mentioned, your snipe executed.
There are two bids at $50 because the winning bidder had a proxy bid registered with eBay.
Your maximum bid was $50 so you raised their bid up to $50, but because their bid was placed first (from looking at the bids page, it looks like six hours before the auction's end), their $50 bid registered first.
Their maximum bid could have been $200, who knows.
Hopefully that makes sense.
