Frequently Asked Questions

Why are items already sold when I click link to eBay?
The tool notifies all users when a deal is found. The best deals will have lots of competition and sometimes sell less than a minute after being posted.

Don't be discouraged. Keep on trying and you will eventually be the first person who clicked and will be able to buy the great deal. A win percentage of 10% is normal.


What browsers is this tool compatible with?
The tool is compatible with all modern browsers including - Chrome, FireFox, Safari, and Internet Explorer 10+. The Game Sniper might work with other browsers but it has been fully tested and optimized for these.

To ensure optimal performance, you should make sure your browser is updated to a recent version. We recommend: Chrome 31+, Firefox 25+, Safari 7+, or IE 10+.

Browser incompatibility is usually the cause for the Connection Status always saying 'connecting'.


How often does the page update with new deals?
The tool checks eBay every minute and will automatically update the page when a deal is found. On average a deal is posted to the tool every three minutes. Sometimes it takes longer between deals and other times multiple deals will show up at once.

Deals will show up less often if you filter the results to specific consoles.


How can I increase my odds of winning listings?
1) Log into eBay before using Sniper
2) Streamline PayPal payment
3) Use the tool between Midnight and 10am EST (fewer users online)
You can read our in-depth article with tips for success to get more information about any point listed above.


Does the Sniper Work on smart phones and tablets?
The tool is created as a web app so it works on all mobile devices. You can use the tool in your device's browser. Or save the tool to your device's home page for quicker access. See how to do it in iOS or Android.


Why do some auction titles and product names not match?
When a seller lists on eBay they choose the name of the game and the condition. Sometimes this information is incorrect. If the seller has their info wrong, our value and savings calculations will be wrong as well.

You should take a moment to make sure the listing is selling what you think before clicking 'Buy'.


How does the 'Adjust for Shipping' option work?
By default the eBay Sniper does not take shipping into account. When you activate this option we find the actual shipping costs for the listing. Then add shipping to the 'Cost' column and subtract shipping from the 'Savings' column. For example:

Listing with these details:
Value: $20
Buy It Now price: $5
Shipping Cost: $2

No Adjustment Shows These Amounts:
Cost: $5 (Buy it Now price)
Savings: $15 (Value - Buy it Now price)

With Shipping Adjustment:
Cost: $7 (Buy it Now price + shipping)
Savings: $13 (Value - Buy it Now price - shipping)

We highly recommend you adjust your 'Minimum Savings' when choosing this option or you will see fewer listings.


How does the notification work?
Checking the 'Desktop notification' box will bring up message in your browser telling you when a new deal has been posted. You can be doing different work on your desktop and the notifications will still pop-up. Notifications DO NOT work on mobile devices.

Try notifications and see if they work for you. You can quickly stop them if you don't like it.
