Snipers

I just had a question about snipers. I get that they help you put in your bid right before it ends but.. does it stop another buyers highest bid ? Example, I'm bidding on something right now where it's at 71.00 and I put my snipe at 80.00. If it ends, then I'm assuming my snipe would put in the bid of 72.00 right? But what if the other bidder had their highest bid as 75.00? Would theirs go through to make the final price as 73.00, or would my snipe just work and win for me at 72.00??

LOL I hope that makes sense.. I just want to understand how it works in different circumstances...

Thanks!

If you set your sniper at $80 and another bidder has bid $75 (or another person has their sniper set to $75), then you will win it at the next highest bid increment.

Oh sorry, another question. What if the persons highest is $80 too? I would win it because my snipe would properly put in the amount before theirs does right? (I set it for 4 seconds)

You mean if the high bidder right now has a proxy of $80? They would win because they had that amount in first. That's why I usually set my sniper amounts for a few cents over. If the bid is at $71 now and the high bidder has bid $80 and you snipe at $80.06, you will win at $80.06.

But if there is another bidder or another sniper in the meantime that bids $80 or within the next highest bid increment (even if it is $79.50 for example), then you will not win at $80.06 because $80.06 is not at the next highest bid increment compared to their bid(s). Make sense?

if it is something I really want to win I usually set my sniper but also go watch the listing manually if possible so I can adjust my snipe or bid manually. Sometimes you end up spending more money than you originally wanted to that way Best thing to do is snipe the absolute MAX you want to pay for an item.
