QuickSnipe It! Feature

With QuickSnipe It! feature it is possible to quickly set up your snipes without leaving the eBay's item page. The technique used is based on the Favorite link button you create in your browser, and click on that button when you are on the eBay item's page, that way the pop-up window brought to you automatically substitutes the Auction Number instead of manual copying and pasting it in the separate QuickSnipe window (you may be forced just to enter your QuickSnipe credentials upon making the bid). Various browsers use different algorithms of placing such button at the toolbar; below are some instructions for the most common browsers for Windows XP: Windows Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Opera. If you are using other kind of operating system and/or browser, please follow the same logic for adding the bookmark and placing it at the toolbar, since most common browsers should support this feature.

Windows Internet Explorer

These instructions were tested as for the latest IE release 7.0.5730.11. If you have oldest or newest version of this browser, please follow the logic of the instructions. However, the exact steps and/or screenshots may differ.

  1. Links toolbar should be enabled before you start to use QuickSnipe It!. To enable it click View -> Toolbars -> Links. If you don't see the View item in the menu bar, press left ALT button on your keyboard.

    Links Toolbar

  2. Click the right mouse button on this link: QuickSnipe It!
  3. Choose "Add to Favorites..." from the menu that appears after you right click. (If a "Security Alert" window pops up, click Yes and proceed.)

    Link Options Dropdown

    Security Alert

  4. When the suggested dialog box appears, choose "Links" folder and click Ok to finish. Make sure that after this, the "QuickSnipe It!" links button appears in the Links toolbar. You can drag-and-drop it at any position you would like (for example, appearing at the front of all other default links, which you may optionally delete and sort as well).

  5. When you are on the eBay's auction page, click the "QuickSnipe It!" button. In the latest IE versions, it is rectricted by default to load the dynamic QuickSnipe javascript. This is why when you click the button for the first time, you will see a Pop-up blocker alert saying "Pop-up blocked. To see this pop-up or additional options click here..."

    Pop-up blocker

    Click on the bar that appears at top of browser and either choose:

    - "Temporarily Allow Pop-ups" - this will enable pop-ups for the current browser session, you will need to confirm the pop-ups each time in the future when you click on the "QuickSnipe It!" button;

    - "Always allow Pop-ups from This Site..." - this will enable pop-ups for all eBay auction pages, and this is probably the setting you should choose (as well as confirm the dialog saying "Would you like to allow pop-ups from 'cgi.ebay.com'?" - click YES to confirm it)

    Allowing Alert

    - "Settings -> Turn Off Pop-up Blocker" - this will disable pop-ups for all websites, which would create a critically low level of security for your browser.

    Then click the "QuickSnipe It!" button again.

  6. If you have addressed the security issues properly, the Pop-up window will allow you to enter your QuickSnipe credentials, username and password. After entering them successfully, you will be redirected to the snip entry page, where everything you need to enter appears the same way as in the normal QuickSnipe section. You can then enter your maximum bid and create new Bidding group, if necessary. Your new snipe will appear under "Pending Items" section. After your bid is successfully entered in the Pending Queue, click "Close" button to close the Pop-up window. Auction Snipe initialized in just a few seconds!
