Become an eBay Sniper with a Firefox add on!

Now I've been using this gem for a few years now with great results.

The add on is called Biet-o-Zilla, but I am not 100% sure that it is still under development, but I know it works.

The only place I could find it was here.

It's a foreign language site, but you can click on the install on the right side to download the XPI file.

Here's what it looks like:

How it works is this:

Go into the settings and add your eBay account information, you can test it to make sure it works.

Enter in the item number in the right section, then the section where it says for your bid, then click on the last minute(you can set the amount of time before the auction ends the bid is placed in the settings)button. I set mine for 15 seconds before auction end because when I had it set lower, the bids were not accepted by eBay and I lost out on a few items much to my dismay.

At the specified time, the bid will be placed and hopefully you win!

Now one caveat.

Firefox and BOZ needs to be open and you need an internet connection for this all to occur. This is not a service, rather just a sniper app for you.

I know personally I've bought an $800 Canon Rebel for $570 with it and a set of $1200 ice hockey goalie pads(I do have a hobby besides the internet! ;-) ) for $167!

Play around with it and happy sniping!

PS: The buttons look funky on the image because the skin I have for Firefox messes with the way the buttons look.

Edit: For the not so brave who want a english solution that has been around for a while check out our own Admin's experiences with here. Note this is a service and not a free app like above. What do you guys use to win auctions? I know you aint doin it on the up and up! klgeeeeee
