Swoopo is an online bidding site for electronics, like ebay, only different. I was wondering if anyone has had any good or bad experiences with them.

Pay $0.60 per bid every bid.
Price goes up $0.12 per bid.
You have to pay even if you don't win.
There is no "high bid", last bid wins.
If you make a bid with 2 seconds on the clock then the time will get extended by a few seconds.

It's nothing like ebay.

It's slightly like ebay, in that you bid. I did some more research and it looks like they are legit, but it is kind of like gambling.

have to say its a complete croc of shit in my opinion
the "bid" never stops
as long as some keyboard cowboy hits BID it just rolls on an on an on
watched an item just now had 4 seconds on it for the last 5 min
it just keeps adding 4 seconds back
wtf?

How many failed bids, that you pay for, do you make on average for every sucessful win? And is that cheaper than buying the product outright?

Your failed bids pays for other people's purchases.

You pay $.60 per bid but the price only increases $.12???

That is roughly a 500% transaction charge every time. hahahahaha, suckers.

on how it works you have almost no chance of winning the item since someone can always bid higher. You have to build a 'credit' line in order to bid and when those are exhausted you lost those credits just for bidding. Feels like a scam to me. Losing credits for something you didn't even win! Never went back to the site to bid since it can be rigged.
