Lost on Two Auctions

Posted: Oct 12 2009 12:26 AM

I have lost two auctions today due to some one else outbidding me by the minimum increment ($2.50)

First: 110444415135 my bid was $178.73, winner was $176.23

After reviewing the Top-20 list of reasons why bids are missed, I verified no PayPal security key and changed my password (everything else appeared to be correct). Again I missed by the minimum increment.

Second: 110444443066, my bid was 166.27, winner was $168.77

In both cases my bid appeared on e-bay a "Sorry, you didn't win the item" message was displayed. Am I doing something wrong?

The only thing you did wrong was not bid high enough. There was likely another bidder with a higher proxy bid waiting. When your snipe was placed eBay simply bumped that proxy bid up by the bid increment, therefore beating you by the minimum increment. The only thing you can do is bid higher...
