I am looking for someone to help with a auction site that i use. The problem is, i am not alway available to bid as there are times of the day that i am away from the computer. I have looked at some of the snipping software and sites but the auction i use is a small specilised trade auction with only a few hundred users therefore it isnt listed. The second problem i have is the auction does not follow the usual incremented system like ebay but whatever amount is bid is the amount that is logged as the bid.
Ideally i need to be able to place an automated bid in the last few seconds of the auction but also be able to set a highest amount i am willing to pay but rather than entering the full amount i would like the automated system to be able to record the highest bid and then in the last 3-4 seconds place my bid at the next acceptable minimum bid as long as it is lower than my maximum preset bid.
I hope i have explaind this properly, eg: i set my highest amount that i am willing to pay at £100, towards the end of the auction the highest bid is say £55 with the next bid to be a minimum of £60 but in the last 10 seconds a late bidder bids £75 and then the automated system see's this and places a bid for me, working out the highest bid of £75 + £5 increment therefore placing a bid of £80 in the last few seconds.
Please let me know if this can be done, the auction site has a username and password system and a place bid and confirm bid process just like ebay.
If this sounds like something that can be done please let me know, i would prefer a desktop dashboard software rather than an external website to load details. Please send me the costings for such a job. Thanks

Dear Sir, you need a auction bot. I build one for my one use. Please could you give us more details about the site you need to be monitored, so we could build an demonstration application
