Auction Sniper Power Snipe eBay Bid Tool



Powersnipe.com launches comprehensive eBay auction sniper software

Portsmouth, NH -- April 15, 2003 – eBay users have a new ally in their search to find the product they want at the lowest price possible. PowerSnipe.com offers eBay users greater purchase power by placing their bid in the closing seconds of an auction, a practice also referred to as “snipping”. Bids can be placed through the companies windows software "PowerSnipe Auction Sniper" or through the PowerSnipe.com website using any web browser. This gives users a big advantage over other desktop snipe software by placing bids through the website’s online bidding server.  PowerSnipe.com goes further than similar products by placing the same bid from multiple servers to ensure maximum reliability.


Developed by CompuPower LLC, a global software development company, PowerSnipe.com and PowerSnipe Auction Sniper differ from other desktop snipe software by placing bids in the closing seconds of an eBay auction through a secure online bidding server.  This allows a user's bid to be placed even when their computer is not turned on.


As an introductory discount, Powersnipe is being offered at $45.99 for a year's license.


“If you have bid on a few eBay auctions, you have probably know the feeling of being beaten by someone who bid on the auction during the final minute. You also know the feeling of setting timers and getting up at odd hours to place your bid. PowerSnipe eliminates problems associated with traditional bidding on eBay" says Peter Duong, lead engineer for PowerSnipe.com.


The practice of “Sniping” refers to a popular eBay bidding strategy in which the user waits until the final moments of the auction to submit a bid. Using this strategy ensures that the user gets the item at the lowest price possible, but there are many problems with this method. These problems include having to be online at the end of the auction, competing with others that may have a faster connection, and timing the bid correctly.  The process of placing the bid takes time so unless you time your bid just right, there is a good chance you will be outbid or time will run out on the auction.


“Using PowerSnipe.com allows users to avoid ‘bidding wars’ which can drive the price of an auction up. It also gives users the best possible eBay bidding experience by allowing them to enter, snipe, track auctions and view the results in an easy to use online environment. When you bid at eBay it is more difficult to retract your bid if you make a mistake or find the item at a cheaper price before the auction ends.  One of the best things about the service is that users do not have to spend all their time waiting for auctions to end. Canceling an auction before it ends is simple,” Duong added.


The PowerSnipe Auction Sniper makes the bidding process even easier by allowing users to browse auctions through the program’s built in web browser. When users are ready to bid on an item, they press a “snipe” button and the auction information is added to the user’s online account and queued for sniping.


Online service has an advantage over desktop snipe software that requires the user to run a program from their local computer at the same time the auction is ending. When using a desktop snipe program bids are sometimes missed because local clock time differs from the eBay server time, and if eBay changes the auction format the current version of the program can become useless.
