What happens at the end of an
auction I've sheduled a snipe for?
In addition to the
message(s) you'll receive from eBay (if your bid registered), you'll
also receive an "Auction Results"
message from Hidbid, similar to the
one in the picture above. You may need to check your "trash"
email folders. Also, our message delivery to Yahoo email addresses is
sporadic right now. Hopefully this will be fixed by the time you read
The email message should be
similar to the picture above, showing the item #, Item Title, Item
and the Auction result
- whether you won or lost.
You can also see the
results of an auction you scheduled a snipe for by signing in to our
In the status column, a trophy shown means you won, a red circle with a
line through it means you lost.
You can click on the "Snipe response"
button for an ended auction item
to see what happened with your bid.
A screen like the one in
the picture above will be shown.
The screen shows information about your bid- the item title, your bid
amount and maximum, the # of seconds left in the auction when your bid
was placed, and whether or not you're the current high bidder.
If another bidder had a
proxy bid on the item that was higher than your maximum scheduled bid,
you'd see a screen like the picture above.
If, when you click on the "Snipe response"
button, you're shown a blank
screen, there was an error in your snipe's execution. When this
happens, there will probably still be an hour glass shown in the
column for that item on your Hidbid member page.
If you are the auction winner, you just do what you normally do when
you win an eBay auction. You can't pay for the item or comunicate with
the seller through Hidbid.
