amerikijinda, I hope you win the shoes.

But I wonder. Why don't you use snipe bids?

If you don't have a sniping account, you can use www.gixen.com which is free and dependable.

That goes for you too, shoe

What happens when 2+ bidders for the same item use gixen?

high bidder wins? that would be my guess. i think the snipe programs just work to enter your highest bid at nearly the last moment. if the current bid is too high, your bid won't get accepted. if you are the highest, it's just like a proxy bid at the last moment.

I'm no expert, but I think the high bidder would win just as in any other situation.

If 2 bidders using gixen were to enter the same bid, I don't know what would happen, but I'm sure Ebay's system would consider one of them the first bidder and he would be the winner.

I use gixen because it's free, dependable and I really don't bid on that many items. I think the free gixen service(which I use), enters the bid with 10 seconds left. Gixen has a premium service (paid for, but not much), that enters your bid with 4 seconds left.

So, interestingly enough, if 2 bidders were to enter the same amount (one with free service, and the other with paid for service), the free service gixen bidder would win. I.E. if I bid $200 for a pair of shoes and someone else (with paid gixen service), made the same bid, my bid would fire with 10 seconds left and his with 4 seconds left. Since I was the first to bid $200, I would win.

Note, there are dozens of sniping services out there these days, including some free services. I only mentioned gixen because it's free, dependable, and will work when you are off line.

I know, for whatever reason shoe (Brian) doesn't seem to use sniping. I wonder how many of you others that buy on Ebay don't use sniping? As value conscious as the SF crowd is, I'm surprised that some people don't snipe on Ebay. Sniping doesn't mean that you will necessarily get a better value but it certainly can and I see no downside to sniping.

I will use sniping in the future.

Thanks for the info.

Anyone post these spectators yet?

"Vintage Raulf Lauren Tan Shoes 8 1/2 9 10"

The interesting interpretation of 'Ralph' might make them go low. No association with the seller, of course...

You might know about www.fatfingers.com -- but in case you don't, it's a neat site where you can type in any eBay search term (e.g., Ralph Lauren) and then it will pull up all the auctions that somebody "fatfingered" in the title...
