Nibblers get a bad rap because they can’t decide what they are willing to pay for an item. They react to what other bidders think the item is worth, instead of deciding on a price that THEY think the item is worth.
1) Have you ever increased your AS maximum bid based on the level of bidding?
2) Do you hold off adding your snipe until you see what other bidders are doing?
3) Do you check the ending price on similar auctions to decide on how much you’ll bid?
If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you’re a nibbler. You allow others to influence how much you are willing to pay for an item, and then you adjust your snipe accordingly.
And, how many of you end up spending more for something (house, car, boat, clothes, Las Vegas, date, wedding, party, etc.) than you originally planned? Yep, you’re also a nibbler.
