Hi,



Just thought I would explain a feature on the new site called sniper control.



The purpose of this is to stop buyers missing out on their precious purchase by being piped at the last second by someone who has watched the item for 2 weeks, it at least gives them a chance to rebid. Buyers like it as they get their book and sellers like it as it can promote more bids.



So what happens is that if Auction X finishes at 9.01PM , if someone bids at 9.00 the auction is extended an extra 2 minutes from the last bid (ie to 9.02PM) , if the underbidder rebids then again there are 2 minutes remaining from the last bid,



Hope you like the functionality, it will be interesting to see how it works.



Cheers

Chris
