Quibids Locked Auctions – The Life of a Bid-Ninja is About to Get Even Better

Quibids just rolled out a new feature on their site…they’re called “Locked Auctions” and you can read about them on their site here: Quibids Locked Auctions

They have entitled the post with “Winning Just Got Easier”…and boy are they right!  More specifically, winning is about to get a whole lot easier for all Bid-Ninja users!  We’ll have the features gone over in the rest of this blog post implemented in the near future to make winning on Quibids using Bid-Ninja even easier than it already does.

Anyway, the gist of that Quibids post is that they’re now locking all auctions to prevent other players from “jumping” into the auction after a certain point. The only way you won’t be locked out, is if you meet one of two criteria (and no, just placing a bid at the beginning of the auction will NOT prevent them from locking you out…it’s a far more intricate process than that).

Anyway, we know what the specifics are to prevent being locked out when the auction does “get locked” by Quibids, which means Bid-Ninja will not only be able to keep you notified about how many bids you need to place or when you need to bid to NOT be locked out of an auction, but Bid-Ninja will also be able to show you which other players have already been locked out and no longer can place bids on the auction!  What’s even better, we’ll be updating the AutoBidder to include an additional autobidding option…an option that if checked, will ensure that it places just the minimum amount of bids necessary to prevent you from being locked out of any auction!

This is HUGE…not only are you not going to have to worry about “jumpers” anymore, but you’ll know exactly which players that had placed bids at some point in the auction are no longer are allowed to place bids any more.

In other words…and read this carefully…once the auction locks, if you’re using Bid-Ninja, you’ll be able to actually SEE the EXACT number of bidders left that are eligible to place bids on the auction…what’s more, you’ll be able to see how many bids each of those eligible players have already placed and how many they have left before they’ll have “purchased” the item and can no longer place bids.

The Quibids world (for Bid-Ninjas anyway) has just gotten a whole lot better.  Granted, this means you’ll need to change up your strategies a bit to make sure you’re not locked out, but after that, as a Bid-Ninja, the world is your oyster!

We hope you’re as excited about these changes as we are!

Keep your eyes open for our newly implemented features coming in the very near future.

We’re slated to release support for DealDash & Beezid to those on the pre-registration list, sometime before October 30th.  We of course, as always, already support Quibids “out of the box”.

This means that you’ll be able to use Bid-Ninja to go to any of the three best penny auction sites in the entire world (QuiBids, DealDash and/or Beezid) and have an advantage over everybody else.

This opens whole new worlds for all you Bid-Ninjas!

Have you wanted to check out those other penny auction sites, but didn’t want to lose the advantage you got having something like Bid-Ninja available?  That’s no longer a problem!

Maybe you’re already signed up at one of those two other sites, but didn’t play on them much because you knew that the advantage you had on QuiBids using Bid-Ninja was worth more than the reduced levels of competition on one of those other two sites.  Again, that’s no longer a problem…get that same advantage across all three sites now!

Get on the pre-release list(s) for the site(s) you’re interested in, and not only will have access to these incredible new tools before anybody else…but you’ll also be eligible for a huge discount.  So sign up and expand the sites that you slice through your competition on using the links below:

Bid-Ninja Going WorldWide – Free Use of Bid-Ninja During BETA for International Users

We are allowing those who live OUTSIDE of the United States full & unrestricted use of Bid-Ninja for Quibids auctions outside of the US until it is out of BETA.

You can get your BETA testing login credentials here: http://bid-ninja.com/betatester-signup.php

The BETA testing login details you’re given are for the analytics portion of our software only.

We are looking for you to test our analytics and look for any bugs. We will ask that you send us a detailed email or multiple emails of your findings to support@bid-ninja.com – please include what country the Quibids auctions you’re playing on are in.

Important details regarding the analytics

User data for the analytics portion of Bid-Ninja 3.0 will be inaccurate because we just started tracking user data. The important facts for the analytics will be the bid tracker. This is typically the most important factor in trying to win any auction.

Your BETA testing login details will be valid until our BETA testing is complete. We don’t anticipate this being more than a few days, as we have already tested the international release EXTENSIVELY and this is more of a formality than anything.

Bid-Ninja AutoBidder – Scheduled Downtime from 11:59pm 8/1 to 3:00am 8/2

Scheduled Maintenance – Expect Downtime for AutoBidder

Bid-Ninja is working on the main site to introduce new features, so Bid-Ninja AutoBidder users can expect some anticipated downtime from 11:59pm EST on 8/1/2013 to 3:00am EST on 8/2/2013

We don’t anticipate that anybody will in fact be affected, but just in case, we ask that you please do not use or schedule your autobidder during this time frame.

The Release of Bid-Ninja 2.0 is Here!

The Release of Bid-Ninja 2.0 is Finally Here!

We’ve listened to our customers requests and are rolling out the release of Bid-Ninja 2.0 in preparation for the upcoming holiday weekend.

We have added a TON of new features & functionality to our plugin, but we’ll just give you the most important highlights here:

  • A new one click installation process! Chrome & FireFox have approved our plugin in their “app stores” as free browser plugins! That means you can install Bid-Ninja in a single mouseclick!
  • The biggest new addition deserves to be told first…so here it is. We’re giving away a "forever free" version of our plugin. No need to sign up, no login details, no nothing! This "forever free" version of the plugin allows you to see ALL of the auctions Quibids has going on…even the auctions they have hidden & removed from their website! These "hidden" auctions are the BEST auctions, because NOBODY can see them except for the people who were already playing in them. This new version of the plugin will allow you to see ALL of these auctions, and you don’t even need to leave the page you’re on to see them. This new plugin adds an icon to your browser, and when you click on it, without leaving the page you’re on, you’ll be immediately shown every auction on Quibids, the number of recent bidders, the current price and a whole lot more.
  • Check out the screenshot (click it to make it full size…you won’t leave the page)

    Bid-Ninja 2.0 for Quibids Screenshot

    The “forever free” version of Bid-Ninja 2.0 is presently only available on the Chrome App Store here. It will be rolled out for FireFox within the next few days.

  • The speed of the plugin is even faster! – One of the things most requested by our users, was an increase in the responsiveness of the application. Some of the tabs, when clicked on, had a 10+ second delay in some cases or during periods of high server load. We have completely fixed this, and now every tab and every report is BLAZING FAST! That means you’ll be able to see the data you need to see at a MOMENTS NOTICE to know the exactly right time to get into or out of an auction and steal away a win!
  • Even more accurate reports! – Bid-Ninja has ALWAYS provided some of the most accurate data there is to be had about Quibids and it’s players…but with the increase in the speed of the application we’ve been able to "kick it up a notch" and provide even better & more accurate reports and statistics.
