That would totally defeat the purpose of using a bid sniper.

Just set it for the max you are willing to pay. You can link auctions together so if you win one, it will cancel the other snipes.

This is all to prevent bid wars. ANYTIME you have bid up on an auction is a time you have wasted money.

Granted, when I SELL, I always start auctions at 1 CENT to promote bid wars. Yes, that is hypocritical, but I want to save money, and make money at the same time.
