    I am looking for a ebay bot that analyzes bids on the internet and logs certain products you're looking for specifically with a LOW reserve.
    Say I wanted to buy a Lamborghini for $11,000. Say the bid is at $11,000 the reserve is met.
    Some people are that stupid, the reason I ask is I bought a NEW iPad for $12 because the seller mistakenly put the wrong reserve price for the bid.

    Is there a bot that would go through eBay with keywords looking for a product with an unfortunate messup?

    Thanks!

    No but you could have a custom one made. However I am having trouble believing you got an ipad for $12 unless the seller made a typo in the listing as well as the reserve.

    Yes, that is exactly what happened. I know it doesn't happen often AT ALL, but I wanted to see if I could find any repeats by chance. :)

    So is the seller going to ship that ipad? That'd be insanely lucky.

    He might, but if he doesn't I guess I'd just dispute the payment lol. I guess you guys are right, people really wouldn't sell anything in that fashion...

    I've got a few bargains with typos but usually only the items of relatively small value are dispatched and those if they are sold by a business not a private seller. There are ways however to make your own bargains on ebay :p

    Type more vague keywords, you can get some pretty crazy things sometimes

    I know some people who've had some crazy success with quibids - like $2 DVD players etc. I've always wanted to see if there was a way to automate that...just a thought if you're interested.

    A NEW iPad for $12? That must be a serious typo:
    Instead of
    "Apple iPad 3rd Generation 32GB - White"
    something like
    "Pile of dog shit, still warm!"

    How about this: eAppraiser - eBay Bot that scans eBay repeatedly as fast as your connection allows? Now whenever somebody post Buy it now auction that is underpriced, you get notified straight away with this specific item statistics, that help you estimate its value.

    Main features:
    - Main screen to manage your scanners

    Predefine what you look for:
    - select category and choose params that define what you look for
    ScannerAdd.jpg
    - start scanning and relax, work , facebook etc.

    - whenever somebody post underpriced item, you get notified usually the same second with dashboard, item estimated value + your browser opens so you can buy it straight away. Make decision in seconds as bargains go fast...

    - select eBay site - UK, German, US , CA etc..
