Used to work, now rubbish. Avoid, there are free snipers out there.

Regularly fails to bid even though I'd be the highest bidder. Often charges for snipes that THEY say you won that you didn't - ridiculous. And no one, I repeat NO ONE monitors the responses. Their so called back-up is utterly non-existent. I've NEVER had an answer from them. Absolute {{Redacted}}. Worthless apologies posted on the site that say they are 'working with ebay, or trying to work with ebay' ...just useless. This service was once the best sniper out there, but since the advent of Gixen and others, there is no point in using them at all now, especially as it often lets you down at the worst possible time.

HORRIBLE, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

This service used to work well, but not anymore. As you know you have to purchase snipes, which I did. I bid on an item on e-bay and they stated, "I WON." But I didn't and they charged me for the snipe. I contacted tech support /customer service 3 times and they failed to respond or credit my snipe. I also bid on another ebay auction and they failed to enter my bid. Again, I contacted them several times and they ignored my requests for an explanation. Horrible service, no communication. They state they answer all requests within 24 hours, but they lie. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY WITH THIS SERVICE. IT SUCKS!!!

Horrible and unreliable! 7 out of 10 Fail! Sunday? Forgetaboutit The service is so horrible, it used to be great. Now so many missnipes and customer service is full of crap. Always blaming ebay updates etc, or the seller. STAY AWAY, its cheap but not worth it. I lost so many items I relied on bidnip to win. The service stops working on Sundays for some odd reason. You cannot win anything on a Sunday. Again, STAY FAR FAR AWAY! Not worth even the price they charge. Even for Free its not worth the headache of losing auctions time and time again. HORRIBLE!

Bidnip Failure

Bidnip I have existing credits, but have zero confidence that my remaining bids will be handled correctly. I will seek an alternative company for future transactions, and write-off BidNip as no longer viable. Eleven bids failed : 8 bids reported as "Bid too low" 2 bids reported "No bid placed" 1 bid reported "Outbid" In every case my bid was correct, my maximum was clearly above the winning amount and placed well ahead of auction. I have made several attempts to contact BidNip by email, but have never had a response or reply. It might be thought that there is now a loss of interest by the owners of BidNip in maintaining company standards and service.

It's pretty much fraud at this point

I had great success with Bidnip in the PAST. I recommended the site to a friend who was about to bid on some rare items. This friend paid Bidnip for 20 snipes and the service DID NOT WORK. The items ended and NO BID WAS PLACED. The rare items were sold too cheap to someone else. Now I'm unable to trust Bidnip to use up my remaining snipes that I paid them for. This amounts to Bidnip stealing our money for a service that they will still gladly sell, but can't make good on. Now for Pissed Consumer... 100 word minimum? My story was finished being told at 55 words, but you caused me to keep on typing, wasting my time and the time of everyone else that reads way more than they have to. Thanks for that.

Was great... NOT NOW!

BidNip is now a waste of time. I used it for years and bought many snipes and had many good bids placed automatically at the last moment, but now it simply does not work. They are non-responsive to any questions. All I have had is no- bid placed the last several tries. I still have 25 or so bids left that I paid for and I consider them lost. Everything is verified, their system simply is not working. I have no idea why and they aren't saying. What can we do? Is there another service out there like Bid Nip ?? Is so someone tell me! I'm willing to pay for it!

There needs to be a class action law suit against BidNip to force them to refund people's un-used WPRTHLESS snipes. They took the money and RAN!

I'll bet they are STILL SELLING SNIPES to new customers. If they are, it is definitely grounds for a law suit.

Bidnip failure

I have had 7 ´No bids placed´ in the last 10 attempts. This is not a satisfactory ratio in anyones book and has cost me a lot more than the wasted purchase price of the snipes. I have asked for a refund but heard nothing back so be warned, work or not a refund shouldn't be expected as it would be with any other purchase that fails to deliver. Why cannot Bidnip be honest on their web site and explain that they have a serious problem with failed bids? 6 months ago they put out a statement on the site saying they were working on it but since then nothing. They obviously haven't solved anything and should admit this so customers dont continue to waste their money on this product and more importantly loose Auctions due to this software problem.

Bidnip is a complete waste of money. All of my snipes have failed, and Bidnip does not answer my emails asking for an explanation or a refund. What a crooked sniping service!

#1355137

I too have lost, over and over, due to failed bids on Bidnip. I purchased their largest package of bids, and they refuse to return my money.

I had one successful snipe yesterday, so I scheduled three snipes today (July 27, 2017), and all three bids failed.

I use another sniping service as well, and that company's snipes never fail. But I spent so much money for snipes at Bidnip, and I guess my money was wasted since so many of their snipes fail.

They keep promising to fix the problem, but when they do, the snipes only work well for a while, and then they start failing again. I feel totally ripped off.

It's happening to me too = 3 out of the last 4 bids didnt get placed even though I would have won all of them.

A Bid Sniping Service, that doesn't work.

What a terrible service these people offer. The claim to save me thousands of $'s. The only way they do this is by not placing my bids. Bidnip is a TOTALLY UNRELIABLE service that simply doesn't work. I honestly can't remember when a bid was placed successfully despite my "snipe" being WAY over the final sale price. I have repeatedly tried to contact their customer support, but never receive an answer. The snipes & money I have lodged with them are gone for good & however many times I ask for a refund I never get a response. Whatever you do, don't use this totally rubbish service THAT DOESN'T WORK! They will take your money & do nothing.

Sadly, I have to agree to this review. I know my password, BidNip had all the correct information, my bid was way over the winning bid and yet BidNip failed to snipe the item - for some reason it simply didn't bother to bid at all.

#1334569

Bid up is a joke!! The last 7 items I bid on, the bids weren't placed! I would have won all of them.

I feel your pain. Lost out on 2 eBay purchases tonight before realizing Bidnip doesn't work

10 missed snipes

Don't be misled by this company claiming to have saved you thousands and fixed (??) all their problems. They miss too many. I don't have the answer. Be warned you will be repeatedly disappointed but they will claim everything is fixed while people keep paying them. Many missed bids, way more than successful winning bids. Only way to stop them misleading you is to join the many people already disappointed and no longer interested in their lies.

Yet again "No Bid Placed" when I would have won !!!!!!

What's the point of a service that does not work any more. In the past few months it's just become less and less reliable at placing bids. Now it's at the point where it is useless. I place a 5sec interval on my bids, which is what it needs, otherwise other people will respond to your bid. They should refund me for the unused Snipes that I will not use, because I cannot trust them. Shame, it used to be a great site, now it's *** ! I can't think of any more polite words to say here, so I'll pad out to the 100 required with gibberish. ab asxs uiuhh xu uih auiusx asbxj ausx usx sx usas asnau ans as sax us ausihx six oiasx oaisx oais oa xo ioasx aoisx oiaw aoisx aiosx o aoisjx o aosix apwwois aois oais oisp aiosio oaisx oooax o.

3 Words Horrible horrible horrible

Avoid! They are cheap for a reason, you end up losing 50% of all bids due to ebay errors. Or as they claim "eBay has placed a CAPTCHA" EVERY SINGLE TIME! Their customer service is non existent, AVOID! Every week the same message WE are feverishly working ...well, trying to work with, eBay engineers as well and see if we can get a pass thru on the captcha from our sniping mechanism. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Bidnip has turned to $h1t

Bidnip used to be a great service, but over the last month it has failed to place bids on both items I tried to snipe. when I checked the bidnip server sync time to the eBay.co.uk site and it was out by 11 seconds. no wonder it isn't placing bids, the auction has been and gone before the bid is placed. I sent a message to tech support but got no reply. I sent a second email and got an automated response this time, so fingers crossed. the bidnip website now displays the following message. 10/10/16 - Our engineers are investigating with eBay a recent issue with no-bid placed responses due to the use of CAPTCHAS by eBay. Please note that many bids are failing at this time. We will keep you posted on our progress updates. I've now setup a couple of test snipes on low value items to see if a larger lead time will help. Grrrrrrrr

Bidnip "No bid Placed" AGAIN.

I placed a bid with bidnip and lost the item to a much lower bid. This is the second time bidnip has failed to place a bid and in both cases I would have won the aution. After the first "No Bid Placed" I contacted customer service and they said it was a temp. problem and was being addressed. At their request. I changed my account with new user name and password in addition to purchasing additional snipes. It appears to have been just a waist of time as I received a No Bid again. I have lost faith in their ability to perform any task and have had enough. I will never use them again.

NO bid placed

I've used Bidnip for years and have had nothing but problems in the last 6 months or so. Just today I lost TWO auctions to way lower bids than mine. On the page it said "No bid placed" as it's done over and over again in the past several months. I've tried contacting tech support several times and they NEVER answer. I'm DONE WITH THEM!!!! I would not rely on this company if you are interested in a third party bidding company. After my snipes are up I won't be purchasing more from them. one word one word one word one word one word one word

Bidnip fail

I set up a snipe 30 minutes before the auction ended and I lost. Nobody else bid on the item. It just said, "bid not placed". Really??? Gee, thanks for NOTHING, Bidnip. Bidnip had only one job to do and couldn't manage to do it. Utterly useless. What's the point of its existence? I'll be canceling my account right now. By the way, why do I have to enter AT LEAST 100 words to complete this post? OK fine. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
