Auction Defender eBay Sniper


Auction Defender bid sniping is unavailable as of May 25th 2021 because of eBay website changes.

Unfortunately, we have stopped further development of the software, as it would require a complete rewrite and approval process from the eBay api.

The program is still functioning for tracking eBay auctions, although over time some features may break as the eBay website evolves. You can still set alerts shortly before they close, see the status of winning/outbid auctions, etc. The only limitation is automatic snipe bidding - in the newest version it will open the eBay web bid dialog for you to place a proxy bid. Users can still track auctions and set alerts to place bids manually shortly before auctions close using the eBay interface.

We have tried to support the AD software for 15+ years now, even though it has become increasingly hard to adjust to frequent eBay website changes. Thank you to all our long-term users for the support over these years.

All features marked with *** below are currently unavailable because of eBay website changes as of May 25th, 2021.

AD is an intuitive program that can help eBay users track a large number of auctions from a single screen, with the ability to bid bid just seconds before they close, to give you the best chance of winning at the lowest possible price. The software is designed to use screen space as efficiently as possible, allowing for tracking hundreds of auctions at the same time, and completely eliminating the need for continued clicking and refreshing at the end of eBay auctions. Auction Defender saves you both time and money, it simply makes sense !

Auction Defender has a number of unique features beyond the capabilities of simple, even higher cost sniper only tools. Just try it free, and you will soon regard this intuitive software as your most valuable eBay tool. There are no hidden costs, or per auction fees, as with website bidding services. Your information is only shared with eBay, we both respect and protect your privacy. With a free trial, you have nothing to lose, try Auction Defender today !
