Can I place a sniper bid?

You can set up a sniper bid on when you enter your bid offer. JAUCE processes this order for you close to the closing minutes of the auctions.

In most of the auctions, sellers choose to set a five-minute time extension if someone submits a bid in the final five minutes. As such, all sniper bids are sent in before this, aiming to avoid an extension.

Please remember:

•    If you set up a sniper bid, you can’t also place a regular bid.

•    As per a regular bid, if the current price is higher than your sniper bid, your sniping set-up is canceled. In this case, you should enter another bid if you want to keep bidding.

•   You can cancel your sniper bid any time up until this final sixth minute.
