eBay "watch" option is retarded

so i saw something on sunday i wanted which no one had bid on that ended yesterday at 6pm.

i hit 'watch' and i got an email yesterday morning about 11am.

then about 10 minutes ago i suddenly remembered the fricking auction and logged in and it had ended with no bids.


wtf ebay? I thought if you put something on a 'watch' list it would alert you like 30 minutes before the auction ended or something a little more proactive.

I set the app to alert me 15 minutes before the auction ends.

Nope. You're just retarded

ah...i dont do ebay ever..maybe once a year.

i didnt realize it could be customized. i'll go check the 'watch' settings now.

Watch List Item "Ending Soon" email reminder is 4-5hrs before actual auction ends. Can I change this to be 10-20min before auction ends?

A: No, the reminder you get is all there is.

the notifications he is showing is from the ebay smartphone app, not an email alert. you'll get an audible alert with icon notification at the top of the phone.

Just contact the seller and work out a deal before he realists the item

Watch option is legit. I'll receive a push notification to an item within 10 minutes. I look at the item and realize it has gotten too expensive or that I absolutely don't need and I'm glad I didn't Buy It Now

It'll take you a whole 5 seconds to download it, you lazy frick.

The app is great. Gives you instant push notifications on being outbid/items ending soon/items won/items sold/PMs, etc.

Do one better and use Auction Sniper. It will bid for you and is dirt cheap. I set mine to bid 5 seconds before the auction ends. It has saved me a lot of time and aggravation.
