Why didn't I win the auction?

What happened to my earlier snipe that should have won, but did not.

If you have experienced a situation where you believe that your snipe should have won but did not, there are a few possible reasons for this outcome.

Firstly, it's essential to understand that eBay's bid increment rules may have affected your bid. eBay sets a minimum bid increment for each item, which determines the minimum amount that bids must be raised by. If your maximum bid did not meet the next minimum bid increment, your bid may not have been accepted, resulting in a "Bid too low" message.

Secondly, it's possible that you may have received an NPB (Non-Paying Bidder) warning or failed to make payment to eBay in the past, which could have led to your bid being rejected.

It's also worth noting that eBay's system is not perfect, and technical glitches can occur, leading to unexpected outcomes. However, these instances are rare, and eBay typically works hard to ensure that their system operates fairly and transparently.

If you believe that none of the above reasons apply, you may want to contact eBay customer support for more information and assistance in understanding why your snipe did not win. They may be able to provide more details about the outcome of your bid and offer guidance on how to avoid similar issues in the future.
