I've been trying to win a base-paint oil today. An ebay automatic bidding from an other newbies had the paint. Is it always that in this case?
Thanks Mario

I tried yesterday evening and I lose again. How you can win when somebody put a bidding from ebay?

Unfortunately you can never win on eBay if someone is prepared to bid more than you are, at any stage.

Sniping will only help if your bid is higher, and removes the risk that another bidder will come back and decide they wish to bid higher.

Rational bidders, by which I mean thoise that are prepared to bid their true maximum will always win, however they may well pay more than they need to if they bid early.
