I placed a snipe for $80 last night using the addon to firefox(I have v3.0.7), and when I woke up this morning it hadn't placed the bid(there were no other bidders).

Is there any way to tell what went wrong? Was 3 seconds too short a time?

Welcome to our forums.

The 3 seconds is okay. However, your account is new to eBay and you got "Attention Buyer. eBay require account verification" message in your My Status for this snipe.

The full message from eBay is:
At this time we ask that you verify your account with a Phone Call.
We'll call the phone number registered to your account to verify that you are the account holder. The process is fast, easy and secure.

Strange, I didn't get a call. I guess I'll have to check this out.

You will not get a call. You have to initiate it first, then you will get it.
Please follow up that link for more information.

Got that cleared up, thanks.

Unfortunately, it doesn't make the bid become placed. Oh well, maybe next time!

eBay need to do some verification steps when you created a new account. Once all of them are done, you are good to go.

Don't give up! I hope you will find a better deal :)
