    All,

    I have an e*Bay sniper that I'm building a website / sniping service around. What it does is takes an e*Bay account & password, as well as an affiliate link / campaign id, an auction id, an amount, and a time, and posts the bid at the prescribed time.

    I am considering opening this up so that marketers would have access and could market it themselves. It would probably replace your campaign id with mine 10% of the time, or something like that (that's how I would get paid). Any interest in this? I don't know if it makes sense to create a simple API for it, so I'm seeing if there's any interest. LMK

    I'm not understanding what the affiliate link/campaign ID is for?

    Personally I wouln't want to have a snipe service bid via my epn account.

    It's against TOS, and very easy to detect.

    They can easily see if you get a lot of bids in the last few seconds of auctions from the same IP but different users.....

    Not worth the risk.:)

    It's not against TOS, although it is against TOS (not to mention difficult) to do it with the e*Bay API. -e-
