As with everything that goes online, a few weeks or months after, there will be a solution, software, tool available online for one’s disposal whether it free or paid. Since the popularity of eBay, there are now different tools and software available that can be used as a sniping tool in eBay auctions.

The best thing about using a website for sniping is that your laptop or computer can be turned off at the time of the auction’s closing. If you are not in the mood or do not have time to snipe at the moment, there is an option for you to save the item and add it on your Watch List. This will then make sure that you will receive an email notification 24 hours before the auction closes.

Here are some of the tools you can choose from:

  • Buyertools. This is a desktop application that will display the auction that you are interested in.
  • Goofbay. This service is free and it gives you the ability to snipe on auctions. The catch is that you will have to register in order to use the free service.
