Hi,

Very good and useful feature will be popup windows with item image or small thumbnail like in other snipers. When I mouse-run over grid (or table) with items list a popup window is appears with current item picture.
Witout this I all time must load item from ebay in browser.

Thanks.

There is no feature like this as it takes an extra traffic and sometimes an item may have more than one thumbnail.
Anyway, I'll see what I can do..

> "it takes an extra traffic"
- I'm not agree with you! 2-3kB for approx. 90x90 pixels thumbnail picture is not a big load for traffic. You can cash this pictures in DB or disk for traffic savings.

- This is not true too. :-) Each ebay item have only one small picture (appears in ebay search results) that you can get here: http://thumbs.ebay.com/pict/<item_number>
Example:
http://thumbs.ebay.com/pict/160287107848

I was create a small bookkeeper's system for my own purposes on ebay and use this link for thumbnails getting.

Each pic is 5KB for one auction only. If you have 100 items, that's 500KB already.
I'll have to optimize that process, does not matter where you store it, you will have to download them on your side anyway.
Additionally, you can't depend on those as seller can change it, remove it and re-arrange between others.

That's just a main thumbnail.
Each auction can have more pics. Believe me, when someone will see one pic, they will ask for more.

I am not think so. Your web-service (and program too) are not a full system for item review and description. If someone want get more - will send him/her to ... ebay site, certainly! :-) I examine you programs only like a helpful tools for sniping and reminding (via images) about - what items I select.

Can you find difference between this headers:

1. FINE NOUVEAU RUSSIAN SILVER TEA GLASS CUP HOLDER c.1900 (150301112694)
2. FINE PIERCED RUSSIAN SILVER TEA GLASS CUP HOLDER 1866 (150301115579)

I put its to my watch list a few days ago and today I do not remember difference between them. But a picture will help me for "total recall" :-) I don't want to read full description for these items (I already want them).


In any case - I find you program as a good tool for ebay bidding. Thanks.


P.S> My wife give a good idea - to make image showing as checkbox option (enabled/disabled). Someone will want images - check it. Another - uncheck (by default).

That was my original intention.
I know several people (including myself) who would not need this option enabled.

Ok :)

By the way, I pay attention that the items are not renew. I was worrying about that and cancel all snipes, and place back all bids to my old sniper program.

I don't understand what do you mean.
"Not renew"? What's the relation between that and your snipes?
