What are Bid Groups, and How Do They Save Money?

By default snipes will not be placed in a group. They will be **Ungrouped**. Each group will execute only one eBay snipe.

Bid Groups let you group similar auctions together — and win only one eBay snipe per group. Each group will execute only one eBay snipe. Once you win an eBay snipe in a group, BidSlammer will cancel bidding for the remaining snipes in that group. This allows you to spread multiple bids around for common snipes -- and get the best price!

Note: Bid Groups are not folders! On occasion, a new user will use a Bid Group as a folder, and then ask why their bids did not fire. This is because all bids in the group are shut off once you win an item in the group.

NOTE: Group snipes must end at least five (5) seconds apart in order to give us enough time to ensure whether you won or lost.

Example 1: WITHOUT Bid Groups

Ungrouped auctions do not depend on each other. They will always execute.

The default is to use no group. No-color (white) snipes have no association with each other -- they are won independently.

Example 2: WITH Bid Groups

Grouped auctions will "shut off" once you have won one auction in the group. You will win only ONE auction per group.
