5 missed snipes in 3 days due to "lag"

Posted: Nov 10 2010 09:14 AM

I've experienced at least 5 missed 5 snipes in just the past 3 days due to what was identified as "ebay lag" even though the message stated that eBay took as little as 3 seconds to process the bid. Here's 5 examples






How long before auction end time is the bid made? I just checked an item I won, item # 130451215029 , and found:

Auction ended 07:04:19 and the bid was placed at 07:04:13, 6 seconds before end time. All 5 examples above were lost by a lag of 5 seconds or less. If this problem continues I'll have to switch sniping services.

I apologize for any confusion. we actually fired double snipes for you to account for the Change of daylight savings time. Therefore one of them fired and overwrote the message from the other one. In many situations, it gave the impression that the bid was lost when won or vice versa. I will look at your particular situation and see, but everyone I have looked at so far falls in this category. Again I am truly sorry for the confusion.

I lost all of these 5 auctions and had a snipe set higher than the closing price.
