Do you bid early?

Do you bid in the final seconds?

How do you determine your maximum bid?

Any tips?

Google bidnapper. It's the easiest way to do it.

I wait till the end.

I always hope people aren't around that have bid..You have to consider what is the maximum you would pay...I remember planning to bid on something and watching people bid over what the item cost new.

Don't get carried away.

Last seconds. If it's already gone over my max bid I don't bother.

If I did it earlier and got outbid I'd be tempted to bid again and increase my budget. Last seconds means I either get it or if someone still manages to outbid I'm out of time.

I bid the max that I am.willing to spend, then cross my fingers and hope like hell that no one bids more than me.

I use a sniping tool - maximum amount and leave it to do its thing.

Bid the max I'd pay for it then wait and see, unless I have to have it so I'll bid enough to make others think I'll keep going, slightly over the odds.

Decide what's your max bid. Download some sort of sniper bid app. Put highest bid in that and let it do the work
