A service suggestion: I am a seller as well as a buyer and have slight qualms about the ethics of sniping. I have always done it "by hand" which is completely fair, but I also enjoy winning auctions without thinking about it. I would like to set my sniping time to be LESS than six seconds. The guilt contaminates the delightfully malicious gratification I feel when I win. I'll probably stop sniping unless I find a service that allows a greater window of time. I'd rather be a loser than an a-hole.

I did not find something like this in my Settings.

With a Mirror account (6$ per year) you can set the offset to 3, 6, 8, 12 or 15 seconds.

As has been discussed many times here, offsets less than 6 seconds will not increase your chances of winning though, in fact they decrease them for a number of reasons that I will not tire our readers by repeating again.
