Auction Hunter has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
Auction Hunter is a native Cocoa application for OS X, built to make your life easier on eBay. It allows you to monitor auctions that you are interested in bidding on, or that you would like to simply observe and store for future reference.

Main features of Auction Hunter are:

  • Automatic bidding and sniping tools, that let you set your snipe amount for an item you like, so that Auction Hunter will place the bid with eBay until just a few seconds before the auction ends. This allows you to not attract attention to the auction, causing price to go up. You can also easily cancel or change the snipe when more...

What's New

Version 1.2.35:
  • Fixed a problem when parsing prices containing thousands separators.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later

From the developer's website:

Auction Hunter has been discontinued.

We are sorry to inform you that the application has been discontinued and starting from Jan 1, 2013 support has been dropped.

This hasn't been an easy decision to take: some time ago we started working on a new major release, as the application had to be rewritten almost completely, then after working on it for a while we decided to drop the project. The main problem is that we don't have a reliable way to interface to eBay: they still don't allow snipe programs to directly access their database and the web site is being changed too often. Because of this, development and support of such a program is a pain and too costly for a $29 application: the sales of licenses didn't even cover the costs of support, let alone the development of a new version... :(

After more than five years we're forced to give up, and we're really sorry for this.

We'd like to thank all of our customers for their appreciation and support through these years.

All the best,
The PowerSolutions Team

Unfortunately it is a useless app that has not improved is issues for years now and it really shouldn't be like that because if it worked, there would good value here. My thousands of auctions that are archived should not be a big deal but it is - it always crashes, just a matter of when. Now it is within 1 minute, every time without fail! Deleting .plist file makes no difference. When I sought help a couple of years back from developer he didn't really know what to do.

Latest version is 1.2.11 - my copy was automagically updated when I launched it but there are no clues about what has changed and the website still says the latest version is 1.2.6. Presumably all the minor problems have been fixed but one doesn't get much confidence from the lack of info. Having said that, this has always been a great and solid product, and the developer in the past has been very responsive.

I was a long time JBidwatcher user, but for a while it seemed like you could never know whether the author had updated its interaction with ebay, so I went looking for an alternative and found Auction Hunter.

I was a bit concerned about paying for something when I had been using a freeware version for so long, but I have been really happy with the way it works.

I have been using Auction Hunter since it was in beta, and I have never had any problems with sniping. In fact, it works so well that I have bought tons of things I don't even need! I even have it set at 3 seconds and it has always worked for me. I've never had an issue with it locking up my Mac, and I can freely move my categories, auctions around without issue. In fact, I have all the auctions I've ever bid on or listed still stored in Auction Hunter. I also tried Jbidwatcher and a couple of others when I first started looking for auction applications, but I liked Auction Hunter the best and I decided to go ahead and buy it when it came out of beta. All applications have some bugs to be worked out, and it is important to note how quickly and effectively a developer responds. It sounds to me like this developer is trying hard to help you, JBSSM, but you don't seem to want it. I think you should take the kindly offered refund and go buy yourself something on Ebay that will improve your disposition -- with Jbidwatcher, of course.

It seems to me you are a paid reviewer that gives positive feedback to products you never tried in return for money.
