Stalking your Prey
-Once you have browsed ebay for a while and found that perfect item simply save it to favourites on your web browser.
-Now it is important here that you don't prematurely bid. (Wait it out)
-Assuming the item has a few days left, check it reguarly every day to see how the prospective price is unfolding.
-If the price seems to be going higher than expected, give it a miss, there will always be others.
Taking what's yours
-After carefully monitoring the desired item, wait until about 1.5 minutes before the auction end to make the bid.
-This will leave you with sufficient time to sign in, punch in the amount you want to bid and to confirm it.
-With only seconds to go your bidding opponent will be left with too little time to make another higher bid, thus the item is yours.
