EBay has problems with what is called "sniping" bids. Some people have bots come in 30 seconds before time is up and autmatically ratchet up a bid to a few cents more than yours
That's not how sniping works. If Bidder A places a $100 bid on an auction and Bidder B places a $200 bid through a snipe app he outbid the other bidder regardless. People use sniping apps because they don't have time to sit and watch auctions all day, so they input their max bid and call it a day.
