Editors' review

For users who are frustrated by being outbid in the last seconds of an eBay auction, BayGenie makes you that last-second bidder. This unique software lets you automatically bid on a product as the clock winds down, no matter where you are.

This freeware program has a very basic interface that shouldn't take long for any user to understand. The bulk of the screen is dominated by a two column check list detailing a user's options with the free version of the software and with the paid version. However, the bottom right corner of the program will be what interests most users. Here you can set up your future eBay victories by entering your eBay ID, password, the item number you wish to bid on, your maximum bid, and how many seconds before the close of the auction you would like your bid to be placed. From here, a screen outlines your choices and asks you to be positive this is your choice.

This program is simple to use, but its major complaints come from its limitations without purchasing the Pro version of BayGenie. The biggest drawback is that users can only bid on one item at a time with the free version. However, if you don't bid on multiple items at once, this is a great download.

    "CAUTION!!!-STAY AWAY!!!-SPYWARE/TROJAN!!!"

    December 21, 2013   |   By Whatisyourproblem

    Version: BayGenie eBay Auction Sniper Free 3.3.6.3

    Pros

    There are none.

    Cons

    Downloads conduit searchbar and takes over your browser and heaven knows what else this can do.

    Summary

    I downloaded this in the hope of improving my ebay chances. However, after installing this, I found my browser homepage opening to a conduit search window instead of my email as normal and the toolbar changed in size and resolution. When I tried signing into my email account again, I found I could not access it using my normal account information (email and password) and I was being asked what email I had that could have security information sent to to access my account. Thinking this was coming from Microsoft (Hotmail), I entered another email address. I was net with the message this was not a recognized account and asked for another.
    Now the alarm bells started going off in my head and I immediately removed BayGenie and all the Conduit files I could find and cleaned up as best as I could with all my anti-spyware malware programs. Now my toolbar is back to normal and my browser, once again opens to my email account as before. I just hope I got everything and I'm not compromised any further or experience any more grief from this.

    "You will loose your eBay bucks!"

    December 31, 2012   |   By Greg_Salyer

    Version: BayGenie eBay Auction Sniper Free 3.3.6.3

    Pros

    Easy to use
    Good Price

    Cons

    It places your bids on a non-US eBay site and you will not qualify for your eBay bucks due to this. I lost almost $40 this month due to this!

    Summary

    If it did not cause me to lose my eBay bucks I would give it 5 stars.

    "TWO THUMBS DOWN!"

    November 03, 2012   |   By frenchfanfavorite

    Version: BayGenie eBay Auction Sniper Free 3.3.6.3

    Pros

    Snipes can be set up to 1 second before the auction ends. Priced competitively.

    Cons

    Now that BayGenie has established a larger following, addressing issues or questions no longer seems to be a priority (POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE). Been with BayGenie since their beta days and LOVED everything up until a few weeks ago. Too many issues that should be an easy fix on the developer end. Not sure if they just dont care anymore or what?

    Summary

    BayGenie, please fix the issues so we can love you again!

    "Did not bid afer I closed its window!"

    October 27, 2012   |   By bjr999

    Version: BayGenie eBay Auction Sniper Free 3.3.6.3

    Pros

    I have no idea if it even works at this time.

    Cons

    I put in a bid on ebay, figured it would keep the bid active, closed the bygenie box window - and guess what: NO BID WAS MADE.

    "Mostly lose items to people with lower bids."

    October 16, 2012   |   By notinterestedparty

    Version: BayGenie eBay Auction Sniper Free 3.3.6.3

    Pros

    About 30% of the time I get a successful bid in.

    Cons

    But mostly ebay bid history will show that I have been out bid by someone with a lower max and my user name does not appear at all in the bidding history.

    Summary

    You stand a better chance at sitting at the "place bid" button on your own. Most of my bids never show up on bidding history of the sold item.

    "Worked ... BUT!"

    May 17, 2012   |   By BankerjohnNC

    Version: BayGenie eBay Auction Sniper Free 3.3.6.0

    Pros

    I wanted to snipe a laptop where the auction ended at a time I was going to be out of the house and away from any means to access the internet ... so I scheduled a bid 10 seconds before the end time. Got home and found that I had won the auction ... YEA! But ...

    Cons

    When I checked my eBay Bucks, expecting to see $7.00+ added to my total for this quarter ... I found that NOTHING was added. And when I investigated, I discovered this quotation from the eBay site:

    "Some third-party automated bidding applications (sniping tools) are actually placing their bids on international sites as opposed to bidding on the US or Canadian site directly. Purchases completed by these applications do not qualify to earn eBay Bucks."

    Apparently, BayGenie must NOT be placing bids on the the US or Canadian site ... who would have guessed???
