Very helpful article. Goofbid turned me off about being misleading as one is getting started… Was wondering if Gixen is still your favorite in ? Thanks so much. Brilliant article. So well researched and explained. Needed to axe Auction Sniper and your blog showed me some great alternatives. Very useful article thanks. Oh, should have read your comment before posting mine above! So did you find this with all Sniper programs or only used Gixen since you had issues? Any ideas Andrew too? Andrew, this is a good article.
I love it, and it has sniped many successful site auctions for me since I started using it years ago. Give it a look at http: Hi Andrew, I used a Gixen before,but lately he started not placing a bids for me,lots of times i have lost. Then i went for goofbid and it works well for me,so far no issues,have to say i snipe a lot every day. That could be an important 6 seconds allowing someone else to bid manually.
I think I will upgrade to Gixen Mirror. Goofbid claim Thanks for this Andrew, just the information I was after. Thank you for the very interesting and useful review. There is an important update that you may wish to add to your blog. That is that Goofbid have withdrawn their free service. Apparently this is due to not having enough income to make the free service economic. Its fine for a downloader who places many bids but for the occasional user it makes it too pricey.
Goofbid have now started charging a yearly fee to use their service, as of January , so I think that tips things to Gixen.
Yes, as others have pointed out, GoofBid is not free anymore so have to use alternatives if not willing to pay. Thanks for a great article Andrew, just for info. One small difference between Gixen and Goofbid: That said, I use Goofbid, and it has been very successful. What about myibidder. Not bad. I use myibidder as well. They are great and easy to use. Always quick to respond with customer service. Thank you so much for taking the time to explain sniping, test the free apps and share this valuable information with folks like me who are so frustrated with being on the losing end of those bidding situations.
So many times sitting by the computer, waiting for the last few minutes, placing the only bid on the item, then losing it in the last few seconds with no recourse. Hate, hate, hate it! I hope I can make the transition from hating to being the one hated. Hi Andrew. I just stopped by here somewhat randomly and decided to comment to give you a bit of support. Occasionally — but rarely — there have been glitches when site updates their site, causing Gixen to have to update their software and thus not being able to execute my snipes for, say, a day.
Thanks for your review. I heard there is sniping software that lets u bid but blocks other sniping software from bidding against you have u heard of this?
I have used Gixen four times now and i have not lost an auction yet. Thanks for the good review and research. Andrew, thank you for a well done review. I hope you can sell the Justin Bieber vid to someone who wants it. I have used Gixen twice. I won both auctions. I will try the other recommended snipers to see which one I like best. Gixen is now my choice.
I would have liked to seen a test of all three bidding on the same item, but from three different accounts. You need two friends to help you. I always manually snipe in the last few seconds. Have you come across such as sniper server drop outs at unfortunate moments? It can happen with snipers too of course, especially when they bid on an item against other snipers.
But in general, using snipers is a much more accurate and reliable way of placing last second bids, compared to manual way. There used to be a program, downloadertools Reminder, that did all these things very successfully without needing to reveal login credentials.
It supported group bidding. Of course, it depended upon the reliability of your Internet connection. Now and again it failed for a while when site changed its layout and the program was not updated fast enough the sites reviewed here have the same risk. Several years ago it stopped working, and no update was produced.
Thank you so much. Last time I deliberately went quite beyond what we could comfortably pay because I was sick of the same two bidders sniping me. I realised it was going to happen again so I deliberately drove up the price.
One of them did. Anyway, being a sniper for the fabric, playing them at their own game, is clearly the only way I stand a chance of being able to cover our now very shabby sofa and to make matching curtains. How dumb you are, Angela.
You did not do that bidder any harm. He put his limit and it was that limit he bought the fabric. No wonder you are poor, if you are too dumb to understand such simple facts. Nobody has any obligation to sell you on the cheap.
Is it not dangerous to enter your site username and password on a website owned by a stranger? They only use SSL for the authentication page.
Everything else is sent in the clear, with no encryption at all. This means site is vulnerable to all kinds of MitM attacks and all of your search and bid history can be seen by anyone who can see your net traffic. Gixen is a pain in the Azz. They changed there sign on format sometime back , where that change asks put in your original username which was your email address.
Now it requires you to not use your email address as your username. Good luck with your ships and if you used to have the original username is your email address. So frustrating. Thanks for doing all that work. I am just about to sign up with Goofbid now. I find them generally to be very good at placing the bids all my snipes have gone through on time but too often lately their website has been suffering from long spells of downtime.
It seems to be a one-man operation so you just have to wait until he gets around to fixing the problem. The system software is somwhat outdated but the last effective for PPC Macs. Another negative about Auctionsniper. I have been using it for quite a while.
Every once in a while it fails to place my bid. I am told it is some problem about logging in. I have lost some items that I really wanted because of this.
They told me they are working on the problem, but apparently no solution has been found. Trying out Gixen now. I have used Goofbid successfully for several months, but recently noticed a major flaw: I happen to have 2 different accounts with site, but signed up for Goofbid with only one account. However, a few times now Goofbid has placed bids for an item under BOTH my accounts, meaning that I actually ended up bidding against myself!
For 2 items, there were only two bidders — both of them me, my different site IDs. Agree with the above commenters, particularly Mike: I found this excellent page looking for an alternative to Auction Sniper.
I used it and found it excellent until this summer, when quite at random it missed some key auctions while completing the next. I missed a couple of important items as a result, and have one I am keen to win tomorrow hence my interest in finding a new sniper and not risking Auction Sniper.
I dud try to contact Auction Sniper and sent screen shots of their less than useful support but no reply sent. I started using Goofbid after downloading your EAB Course, I have made decent money on undervalued items using your methods. Well worth a review and instructional post by you in my opinion.
Andrew, thanks for the info. If you're going to do it, though, there are a few dos and don'ts to keep in mind. What Is Sniping? Snipers are third-party services that allow buyers to enter maximum bids on specific items so they can be placed automatically in the last seconds of the auctions — placing bids like this draw less attention to the item than bidding manually and far in advance of when auctions end.
Be Realistic You may or may not win. Sniping doesn't guarantee a win; it just automates your bid. Don't try to win more than one of something by sniping on multiple auctions of the same thing. For example, if you are trying to win an unlocked iPhone, try to snipe one. If you lose, try again.
You don't want to end up winning multiple auctions for the same item; you will be obligated to pay for all of them. Free Service for referrals. More Service Options than any other sniper.
