    Hi...recently bidding on Ebay I noticed that in the final minutes / seconds it didn't seem to count down to the end like it used to.
    ....Is this an alteration to how it were ?

    ....Mike

    no it's still doing that!

    Trick, of course, is to make your first bid with as few seconds left as possible. Smile

    Open up two copies of your browser, one to watch the time and one to make you last minute bid. Wink

    Of course, you'll be singing a different song if and when you come to trying to sell on ebay, then you get 50 messages after an item closes from people going "ummm, sorry I was watching this but forgot to bid/didn't bid in time...would you consider selling it for..." blah blah Smile

    "Sniping" (as it's known) is all very well, but you should make sure you have decided beforehand what the absolute maximum you're willing to spend is before placing that bid, which helps avoid disappointment.

    cheers guys....can't understand it...I ran a check on the final few minutes and sometimes it's counting down and at other times it isn't.
    ..wonder why this is ?
