I've had an account with Bidnip for years, always worked (tried and trusted). Now it just doesn't place the bids. I've lost out on five items. I've emailed them 3 times in the last few days and they don't even bother to respond. My account is in credit but they...

Bad quality
Bidnip worked great for years and I tried to get everyone I knew who bought things on ebay to sign up for it. I liked it that much and really believed in it. Sometime in late 2017 (I think it was), I told my girlfriend's dad about it because there were several items...

Always worked well, but now they have "run off with my money".

They have disappeared with my money in the form of unused snipes. And, as far as I can determine, the only information out there is reviews like this. Nothing from them, just a dead web address!

No Bids Placed/No Responses/No Refund ... Straight Up Thievery

This company has never been all that great, but now they are just flat out BS. So many bids not placed, each time I reached out asking for an explanation. No responses whatsoever. And forget about a refund on your unused snipes. It's like they just took the money and ran.

CROOKS - Took my money, gave no snipes

Bought a package of Snipes 6 months ago. Bidnip processed my PayPal account and took my money. Never gave me any snipes. OK, maybe a mistake, right? So I emailed them over and over, explaining & showing the PayPal record. THEY WOULD NOT EVEN RESPOND. As far as I can tell, BidNip is now nothing more than a scam. This site wants more words to meet the 100-word minimum, but what more is there to say? Used to use BidNip all the time ... but now I wouldn't send them a penny. They take your money and never provide what you paid for. And then, worst of all, they ignore you completely when you request they fix the problem. This is what a crook does.

BidNip no longer works!

I've been using BidNip on a regular basis for the past 15 years until this year. During the winter of 2018 I did have success a couple of times that I used this snipping service but ever since late April I've had 6 "no bid placed" failures. It is especially frustrating as 5 out of the 6 cases my snip bid was way higher then the winning bid sometimes twice as hight! Of course we can't know what the max bid of the winner was but I feel confident I would have won some of those auctions if BidNip had actually worked as expected. I've been so busy I didn't follow up until a couple of weeks ago when I got especially upset at not having my snip bid placed. I wrote a friendly detailed account to BidNip customer service and as of today have not heard back. And now today neither the original (classic) or new BidNip home page will not load.

Guessing they are defunct I bought sniped in May. They were kind enough to take my $$ but never gave any snipes.

And to top it off they won't even respond to emails.

Crooks or out of business. But since they take your $$, I guess that makes them crooks.

I've repeatedly experienced the exact same problems. Even though I still have snipes to my credit, I no longer use Bidnip because I was losing too many extremely easy (cheap) auctions. Bidnip no longer works.

2 missed bids no snipes

I paid for 5 more snipes it didn't record this and took my money. Tech support did not respond to 3 emails I tried to bid on 2 items on ebay and when I lost the auction even though I offered more than the winning bid it did not win the auction. When I clicked on contact and wrote to tech support I got no response It used to work great , but now I believe it is fraudulent I have used it for over five years I have to get my money back from paypal.How many more words do I have to type before this thing accepts my complain It keeps saying the minimum is one hundred words haven't I gone over a hundred by now

Con Artists

Had used them successfully for several years - ran out of snipes, purchased more and then they went AWOL - no customer service or tech support. Numerous emails to customer service got no reply... I began losing auction after auction due to "No Bid Placed". I contacted the man who created the site (which he sold to a couple in N Mexico), he was horrified at what had happened and tried to reach the owners - who never responded, not even to him. I complained to the N Mexico BBB - they never got a response. Bidnip is a ghost site now, any bid placed will not go through. I lost a number of rare items due to this and lost the money for unused snipes. I asked for a refund - good luck with that! They are con artists, plain and simple. Avoid like the plague!

Never heard of 'em and you provided zero background. Forget all about the BBB ; they can and will do nothing.

They are not The Commerce Police and have no representative or litigious power to do anything but take a report.

They are an Urban Legend that somehow hoodwinked the public into believing the mythology. As you now know.

MISSED SNIPE

HAD BEEN USING BIDNIP FOR OVER 10 YEARS & DURING THAT TIME I HAVE RECOMMENDED THEM TO MANY OTHERS, NOW NO RESPONSE FROM THEM MULTIPLE TIMES ON A 'MISSED SNIPE' EVENT. I SEND IN THE COMMUNICATION ON THE SITE AND AGAIN NO ONE ANSWERS. IT NEVER USED TO BE LIKE THAT. THEY USED TO BE ON TOP OF THEIR GAME AND WERE THE AMONG THE BEST SERVICES OUT THERE. I STILL HAVE 20 OR SO SNIPES IN MY ACCOUNT BUT AM JUST GOING TO CLOSE IT. IT'S A SHAME THIS COMPANY HAS GONE SO FAR DOWN HILL. THEY USED TO BE GREAT. NOW I WOULD NO LONGER RECOMMEND THIS SERVICE TO ANYONE. THERE MUST BE MORE RELIABLE SNIPING SERVICES OUT THERE.

No Bids Placed. No customer service - They Canceled my account after 9 years

BidNip - No Bids Placed. No customer service - They Canceled my account after 9 years
I've written to them via their contact form 3 times in the last couple of weeks. I get back an auto response saying they respond in 24-48 hours. This last time, still no response but I got a notice from PayPal that my auto renewal has been canceled. The last month - either NO bids placed, or comes back as bid too low when in actuality my bid was way higher than the winning bid. Here's my email and their response on 8-23-18 - no word since Thank you for contacting BidNip.com. We read all email, and generally respond to all questions, comments, or requests within 24 to 48 hours. Your message: "i JUST GOT NOTICE FROM PAYPAL THAT YOU'VE CANCELLED AUTO PAYMENTS NOT A WORD FROM YOU? Is this the kind of support you give? I've been a loyal customer for nearly ten years. What gives? You didn't even bother to answer my question from August 8th. Your message: "None of my recent bids are being placed....and your comment about gee some sellers don't allow them, just doesn't work. I've been using bidnip to order from xtreme for years! So loosing out on these bids is quite upsetting. Other bids say bid too low but I bid say $4, and the final bid is 0.11!! Nothing I've bid on since July 20th has gone through! I have verified my eBay info and it comes through as verified! how can we fix this problem?

Snipes not going through; NO customer service!

I have made multiple bids in the past few months, and when they failed I notified customer service..........and I mean "service", because they never responded. An automatic "we will get back to you" is sent but I never got a response. I waited awhile before I tried another snipe, and it failed again today. shame on them!..........not only for not doing what they promise, but for what comes to essentially stealing. If they are out of business should at lease credit what funds they took. There appears to be no recourse.........will look to see if I can register a complaint with Better Business Bureau. I have nothing more to say, but need to fill with one hundred words for this to get published.....sorry........who would have thought someone would NOT want brevity.

This site will take your money and not place bids. I'm not the only person to get ripped off.

Gave them a 2nd chance, shame on me

tried them twice, both times bid not submitted and item sold for much less than my top bid. One time there was only one other bidder and they got it at the ask. The company does not respond to contact attempts. ZERO of their listed reasons why I lost were applicable. Just a BS company, my fault for even giving them a 2nd chance since they never responded to my attempts to contact them. Dont use them, unless you do not want to win your item. Fool Me Once, Shame On You, Twice, Now Its On. You get what you pay for with them, ZERO for their trial, ZERO is what I got. Actually I lost $111.32 Since they blew my first bid I sought another same product, found it, won it, got ripped off, waiting to see if ebay will reimburse or not. Had they not screwed the pooch, I would not have been bidding on the item. So, what do I do, I try them again on the same item, different seller, and they do the same, NOTHING, ZERO, no bid submitted and it was $30 over the winning bid. RUN LIKE *** FROM THESE SHISTERS!

You never explained the nature of the offender or the reason for their existence. eBay ?

What ? I don't understand any of this and I've never heard of BidNip.

BIDNIP SUCKS

BIDNIP IS THE LOUSIEST MOST AWFUL WEBSITE EVER FOR AUCTION SNIPING on eBAY. See, it used to be a very good website. But that was TEN YEARS AGO. Since then, they turned into mental retards, sitting in their wheelchair with spit dribbling down their chin. "NO BID PLACED" is all you will ever GET from BIDNIP. I have 103 PREPAID snipes on Bidnip and I will NOT use them anymore because the SNIPES NEVER GO THRU. If you like things that don't work at all, hosted by creeps, then Bidnip is for you. I have moved along to GIXEN MIRROR !!! YAY !!!

Customer service non existent

There is no response to my 12 emails the company is gone, I opened a PayPal claim and got all my snipe money back. This will soon be a class action suit. If you bought Snipes in the last 90 days call your credit card company. It's too bad I did like them, not anymore.
