Description:

now you really can ◉ win a few over at eBay ◉

● All Auction Sniping is fee FREE FOR LIFE. no more paying a service for each auction, no fees for alerts, no more ANY fees of any kind. (click on "more" for more details)

● An eBay sniper is a tool to let you bid at the last moment of an auction automatically, so no one can counter your bid by a few cents, now you win the ones you really want, for the price you want them.

● Adjust bid time between 10 seconds and 2 seconds before end of auction, Enter your Maximum price you would pay, and the snipe automatically bids only what is needed to win, using only your Maximum price if that is what is needed to win.

◉ Caution: If you have a Mac that is not connected to the internet much of the time, that is not a good candidate for this app. This app does not send your info to a server, It is self contained. ◉

● Play your cards close to your vest, and your eBay bids even closer by doing your own eBay Auction sniping with absolute full personal control, even alerts that let you know if your bid has become too low all through the auction, not once a day, but within 7 to 12 mins of it happening. NO other app or service can do this. No one can come close to the many functions that this App provides you, not even eBay. And because of it's dual modes, you can mix and match just what you need for each Auction, fee free FOR LIFE. This app actually makes eBay useful again.

● This App has two modes, You can either have the app automatically snipe/(bid) for you at the last moment on an eBay auction, or you can set custom alerts so that you can snipe/(bid) in person at the last moment, or even combine the two for exactly what you want in an eBay sniper, along with getting alerts for free. And the alerts go to all your devices when using both iCloud and this app's companion iPhone/iPad App.

● Use 'Cluster' bidding, bid on several auctions of a related item, and when one wins, all the other auctions are canceled automatically.

● With the iPhone companion app available in the App Store, you can set an auction snipe on the road, and your mac app at home will automatically register the new snipe or even changes to a snipe and do the last minute bidding for you.

◉ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ●●●● First mode ●●●● ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◉

To have the app snipe for you automatically, just follow the steps 1,2,3,4 at the bottom of the window in the app.

∙ ∙ also see "How to set up your Macintosh" in the help menu in the app (or at main web site in upper right corner of this page) set up is important, you should read it before purchasing. ∙ ∙

(the iPhone/iPad companion App also has all the functionality of this App, and all the snipes are shared through iCloud between the two companion apps near instantaneously.) (iPhone app will not bid while it is background though, so it really should be used with this app or a dedicated old iPhone as a main "server")
◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦

◉ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ●●●● Second mode ●●●● ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◉

● To snipe in person, first go to your preferences in the bottom right of the window and set up the alert times you want triggered before an auction's end. Then go to an auction with an end time. A new button in the bottom of the window will light up, click on 'Add to Calendar' and you've added that auction to your Device's Calendar with the preset alerts.

● With iCloud and the companion iPhone/iPad app, your new Calendar events will also sync to all your other devices and Calendars for seamless alerts automatically so your entire digital arsenal is alerted.

● A link back to the listing is saved with your alerts, so when an alert appears, simply touch on "view" and you'll see a link to the listing for immediate action.
◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦

● You will be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to set up a snipe, or set up alerts.

● See the do's and don'ts and other FAQ's at the App Website, click on the main "Web Site" link to the upper right of this text.

Release Notes:

This update handles eBay's slight change in it's login process.
(all users should update, old version's login will fail to work, and you will lose snipes without this update)

last few updates:

1) improved the apps ability to handle even more snipes, depending on stability of your internet connection
2) sort snipe list by date button.
3) see the current pricing of all the auctions in one place now in the sniping watch list.
4) see your max snipe price of all the auctions in one place now in the sniping watch list.
5) see the end time of all the auctions in one place now in the sniping watch list.
6) see how much time is remaining of all the auctions in one place now in the sniping watch list.

added robustness to the eBay sign-in, so you should only need to sign in one time to eBay.

My promise to you is that as eBay changes, and Apple adds new app capabilities, I will continually improve the app so it is as effortless for you as possible to win eBay auctions.

My “Pay it forward” to you.

First update this sniper app and explore the new features, and if you've "won a few" in the past and like the new features, click on this "Mac App Store" app again, then the "Purchases" tab at the top of the window, and then click on the sniper app's title to write a review. Look for "Write a Review > " near middle of page, also you can email me directly in the "Preferences" button within your sniper app with any suggestions you might have for the app, as always, I'll get back to you ASAP.

Thoughtful reviews provide an incentive for the large expenditure of time it takes for me to continually improve the app so it is your best tool you reach for, and the best app it can possibly be, period.

Review by honk..

great support, and in the end, a fantastic eBay sniper tool. - I’ve used this app for a while and can give a good going over. Set up is slightly long if you go the route of having your Mac be able to wake up to snipe, but once you figure it out the bonus is you only have to do it once. :) Auction snipes are easy to start, and I’ve done many snipes with no problems. Customer support is ideal, can’t get much better, they return my emails, and do it very quickly, with intelligent answers. The “cluster bidding” is fantastic, works well. you can set up a group of bids, so that when one wins, the other auctions are canceled. excellent. when you want something, but see many choices and don’t want to miss one, while trying to win another. The app is simple to use.. actually a pleasure to use after the initial setup. you can see all your snipes in a “watch list” at a glance, with all of my snipe bids displayed and can change, edit, move them around and delete them with ease. How does it compare to other ways of doing ebay sniping? I personally find this method of eBay sniping ideal. It gives me personal control and I don’t have to send my ebay password to some web server like other methods. All in all a fine experience and app and customer support.

Version 5.1.9
Review by Mr. Sticky Feet

10 minutes of instructions and settings…if you get it right - This app has additional downloads and 10 minutes of set up instructions just to get it working. I’ve used several Ebay tools and this is EASILY the most clunky. Save yourself some aggravation and find another tool.

Version 5.3.1
Review by Cheviot

Dependable and well worth the price! - I’ve used several other eBay sniping programs and all had their problems, especially with timely updates. However Auction Buyer Bidding Snipe Timer for eBay is the best I’ve found. The author uses pop-up messages to warn you about possible upcoming issues due to changes with eBay and issues timely updates to address those issues, preventing lost snipes. The iCloud integration really puts it over the top. I can see an auction when I’m at work or on the road and set up a snipe that will fire on my home Mac. This feature has always worked flawlessly for me. I know I haven’t mentioned sniping itself, but there’s not much to say aside from “it just works”. Easy to use interface + timely updates + snipes you can trust. I have no reservations in giving this app 5 stars.

Review by fasterWayFar

Must say, excellent eBay sniping experience - seems to be always updating the app to make it better. I started with the iPad version, but now with both versions, it is better to see my iMac spring into action after setting a snipe up on my iPad. I now don’t have to do anything on the mac, it just comes to life and I got my two sets of what I am collecting with no problems.

Works like a charm. - I’ve used this software successfully for several months and give it my highest recommendations. Technical support, on the rare occasion that you need it, is simply outstanding.

Review by matthro57

Very Glad to have this Successful, Money-Saver ! - Short version: ‘Wow, this is great !’ Longer version: I found a collectible item at auction that I liked on eBay, but I never had bid at an eBay auction before. I did some internet reading about how to be successful via the various bidding, proxy bidding and sniping strategies, and was led to this App. I purchased it and began the set-up. Terrific online support ! I had no more than a couple of hours from purchase of the App until my desired item’s auction ended. I am not a computer genius, but I am trainable, and with about four back-and-forth emails with one of their support members just to understand how it bid concerning ‘reserve’ prices, etc., (read, how wisely does it spend your money) I got up-and-running smoothly and with time to spare. Because time was somewhat tight, for this particular auction, I chose the method of just keeping my Apple laptop computer running vs. setting the computer to wake up on it’s own in time to bid. I had time to follow their printed advice in the App ‘help’ section and bid on a cheap, soon-to-end auction just to make sure all was working properly. It was. (I will be receiving a 15 cent item from China with free shipping in the next 4 to 9 weeks! ) Then, I won the auction I bought the App to help with and in doing so I saved money over just ‘guessing’ how to bid. What a terrific App tool to use ! Cannot say enough good things about both the App and the speed, courteousness, thoroughness, patience and knowledge their online support staff brought to bear. Veeeery Happy ! Thank You to both the App developers and the support staff !
