    agree a maximum price you're willing to pay for that item. With about 50 seconds to go, just put that proxy bid in and that way if you win it, your getting it cheaper than you wanted it, and if you dont win it, it went higher than you wanted to pay

    A lot of people use that bid assistant, plus my father in law puts his bid in, then at the commit to buy button he counts down till about 5-6 secs to go and presses it, and ends up sniping it very close to the end. Its risky cause if you get lag you lose but thats the risk you take

    I have won many items doing the last second bidding.

    Why put a bid on with 3-4 days to go so it gives others a chance to think about upping their bid to out bid me. Late bids means i put in the max i am willing to pay and no one can stew over if they want to up their max by another fiver just to see if they can get it which is at my expense, i lose out then.

    I usually wait until the last few minutes then put in my highest bid, if i get outbid then its cost more than i wanted to pay so wouldnt have went for it anyway
