I may have missed an obvious shortcut for adding snipes on eBay items, but I currently grab the URL link from an eBay search results screen, and manually edit out the unnecessary characters... to save typing in the item id.
So for example (no particular reason) - I could rightclick on a SSD drive and copy this URL:
http //www ebay.co.uk/itm/MICRON-64GB-6Gb-s-Real-SSD-C400-mSATA-MTFDDAT064MAM-1J2-/252257947055?hash=item3abbbcccaf:g:~xkABCDabABCabAB
And then delete the bit before and the bit after to get to "252257947055"
It's easier to work this way if you have several items to add and they are all in different tabs in a browser.
What if gixen's 'add new snipe' form could take the full URL and find the right digits automatically?
