    I just got a new idea. Penny auction bots.
    If they actually work, it would be a very good investment. The first one I could find on Google is 97$. Any thoughts?

    Don't understand why it would be so much, in my mind all they need to do is detect the time and click a button when the time reaches a certain point.
    Can you post the name of the software so I can look at it, also could you post what you would want in a penny auctions bot.

    the website's called pennyauctionbot
    just add the and no I'm not trying to promote it just wondering if investing in it would be a good investment. I'm thinking if it wins like 20% of the time you will still make a decent profit. Any thoughts?

    I think penny auction sites are scam. If you look in google for penny auction scripts, you will see how easy the owners can "auto-bid" himself to win the auction.

    No, this is in no way worth 97$
    Its simple condition checking, could be easily written in 200-300 lines of code.

    Penny auction sites are essentially just a scam. Don't be dumb and try to beat the system with a terrible bot. It's not going to work.
