eBay auction sniper


Issue should now be fixed - 2014-06-03

It looks like we have just fixed an issue with hidbid not accepting ebay passwords and showing a notice saying that they're incorrect,  when they actually are correct.

For some users, the ebay notice about the security breach is still shown, even though the user has already updated their password on ebay. You don't see it if you log into ebay manually, but when our sniper engine attempts to log in for you in order to place your bid, it is still shown.

So, we had to change the sniper code a bit to be able to work through this special notice page.

We're still monitoring this issue, but so far it looks like it is ok now.

Sorry for the trouble and not being able to update your ebay info, and for any missed snipes.

Hopefully no more changes at ebay that affect sniping, for a while.

Many users with incorrect 'bay info - 2014-05-25

There are a lot of snipes that are not able to execute, probably because many members followed the request by ebay to change your log in information in the last couple of days, but didn't update it here on hidbid.

To update it, go to your 'profile' page by clicking on the 'profile' link located near the top center part of the page, after logging into hidbid.

Then, click on the 'Change' button (you may need to scroll down a bit to see the button), not the 'Change password' link. You can then update your ebay info, and then click the 'Next' button.

If you have updated your information here on hidbid after changing it on ebay in the past couple of days, please send a message using our contact us page.

You can check your snipes by looking at the 'response' page by clicking the 'response' button associated with snipe, on your 'my snipes' page.

Sorry for the trouble. 

Issues with some snipes - 2013-08-23

We're having some issues with the main server stopping at the bid confirm page on eBay and not submitting the snipes, and then showing that the snipe had won.

The mirror server is submitting them, but it looks like eBay had some trouble last night and maybe five or six did not execute on either server because of issues at eBay.

We are working on figuring and fixing the issue on the main server.  I will give another update when there is any new development.

Sorry for the trouble
