Bid Groups are designed to help you get the item you want at the price you want, without having to constantly scour listings on eBay and place countless individual snipes. Choose as many similar items as you want, and place them in a Bid Group. You can then set the maximum price you're willing to pay for each listing. Auction sniper will place your bids on each item until you win.
Creating a Bid Group
1. Log in to your Auction Sniper account and navigate to the Manage Folders page via the My Snipes menu.
2. On the left side of the page there is a Create a Folder section. Populate the folder options as desired, and check the "This folder is a bidgroup" option.
3. Select your desired Bid Group options and then click the Create button. This will create a Folder which is also a Bid Group.

General Bid Group Tips
Make sure to allow at least 30 seconds between each auction's ending time to give Auction Sniper a chance to identify a winning or losing bid. Auction Sniper will continue to place your bids on each item until you win.
You can edit your Bid Groups by adding and deleting items from your list. A bid can only be deleted if there is more than five minutes remaining before the end of an auction. You can also go through previous saved searches and add items to a Bid Group that way.
