    Default goofbay

    Had my eye on a Irmscher spoiler for my estate. brand new in box. Seller would even paint it for me for an extra £50.

    Set up the sniper in goofbay and went to the shops. MrsJohn35 needed to go. Set my limit at £51.50 and went out.

    Only to find it had sold for £51....................

    some lucky person got a bargain.....if he reads this then well done (put the lottery on as well you lucky so and so).....

    my question.......p&p was £10, is this included in my bid or does sniper ignore the p&p price.......then why didn't it work..........

    As far as I can remember, sniper doesn't take into concideration any P&P, in the same way it isn't if you were to place a bid in the usual way.

    Not sure why it wouldn't have worked but I have had the same problem when I have used sniper int he past!!

    Sniper DID work. Just that there was another person who bid £51 before you and you would have had to bid £52 (ie an increase of £1, not 50p) to get the high bidder title.

    All sniper does is place a bid a few seconds before the end of the auction AS IF YOU YOURSELF SAT NEXT TO THE COMPUTER AND PLACED IT IN THE NORMAL WAY.

    If it was such a bargain at £51, why didn't you put a higher bid on it??? You simply got out bid, that's all.

    The Sigy spoiler went for £101.

    My bid? £100!

    Doh!

    Why end these things at awkward times when us mere mortals are at work!?

    If you were the only bidder other than the winner, yes it will go for £101. It doesn't mean that was HIS actual bid though - he could have bidded 1 million for it.
