They don't allow sniping. That's why the clock resets to 5 minutes. You can put in as high a bid as you want. And it will raise your bid to beat anyone who bids lower. So if they had money higher than your bid it would close and you'd lose. Now if he doesn't have an excess bid. They are given 5 minutes to beat your bid. Sometimes people really grind it out. A euro at a time.Hello, I want to report an unhappy glitch in the bidding process for the latest 4 winter cleaning auctions - 2 walkabout and 2 dreamtime. I bid on two of the 4 during the last 20 seconds. All 4 were supposed to end nearly in the same second, but when I set my bids the two auctions clocks on these auctions were set back to 5 minutes remaining time. I hope I sound somewhat understandable. I won these auctions nonetheless, still it was a wtf moment, sorry.
