But I NEVER bid until the "last-10-15" seconds, (to late for anyone else to respond).

That will work IF and only IF your bid is higher that the maximum limit of any auto-bidder. I don't know about your reaction time, however, I doubt it is faster than any modern computer.

My first purchase at eBay was in 2013. At the time, I waited to the last minute to submit my bid, only to be "outbid" several times.

Exactly why I specified "10-15 seconds).

And I should clarify that is where I "start" the bid-entry process, w/ actual bid "entry" w/in "5" seconds.

It indeed has to be where no time remains for a (higher) response.

Read the above again.
What part of AUTO-BID don't you understand.

Never won using that strategy.

Three years ago, I took advantage of the "auto-bid" on items I am serious to buy. Submitted my starting bid in-line with the suggested bid AND the LIMIT I am willing to pay for the item, not a penny more.

I have never used those ... but good idea if works 100%.

Ahhhhhh . . . finally.

The bottom line is still submitting a bid in last "seconds" (too late to allow response).

I have very very very (most) often been able to do that w/out auto-bid, but admit that can be a time-saver since I often had to "re-schedule" my time to allow that, (and also admit very often forgetting and thus missing items ending).

Sure I lost some to someone whose bid is over my limit, however, I won some for LESS than my specified limit. My last winning bid was $479 which is roughly $70 lower than the limit I set.
