What are Bid Groups, and How Do They Save Money?

By default snipes will not be placed in a group: They will be Ungrouped...

Bid Groups let you group similar auctions together — and win only one eBay snipe per group. Each group will execute only one eBay snipe. Once you win an eBay snipe in group BidSlammer will cancel bidding for the remaining snipes in that group. This allows you to spread multiple bids around for common snipes -- and get the best price!

NOTE: Group snipes must end at least ten (10) seconds apart in order to give us enough time to ensure whether you won or lost.

Example 1: WITHOUT Bid Groups

Ungrouped auctions do not depend on each other. They will always execute.

The default is to use no group. No-color (white) snipes have no association with each other -- they are won independently.

Example 2: WITH Bid Groups

Grouped auctions will "shut off" once you have won one auction in the group. You will win only ONE auction per group.
