I'm getting outsniped more frequently - just lost bid by new user bidding two seconds from close.
Allow custom setting for primary and/or backup in seconds from 1 second on up or I'll be forced to find a new sniping tool and will not renew subscription.
Otherwise, it's an INCREDIBLE tool and does everything it needs to do the best out there! Thank you.

cjager, you need shorter than 3 seconds? Why?

In any such case, if your bid hadn't been outsniped, it wouldn't have even got accepted by ebay.

When you get outsniped, nothing would have helped except higher bid.

I agree with Mario... bids that are scheduled at 2 seconds from the end of the auction are not reactions to your bids, they were coming anyway... so if your bid was later it still would not have won... it would not have been Outsniped but it would have been outbid or eBay would not have accepted it at all (if it was no longer more than one bid increment above the current auction price) ... neither are better scenarios and the second is actually worse as the other bidder may get the item for less than you were prepared to pay.
