Question by indian girl: Does proxy bidding start as soon as you enter a bid?

I’m trying to win an item (obviously), but I can’t be on Ebay at the time the auction closes. So, I’ll just use proxy bidding.I know how it works, but does it start as soon as you enter a bid? You don’t have to turn it on or anything so to speak? Thanks.
This is for Ebay.

Don’t use proxy bidding. Shill bidders love this to get the max price on the item

Use a sniper.

It’s free on

Enter the item# where it says Free Ebay Sniper

Then, select “2 seconds” and your max bid amount for the item.

This way you don’t have a bid war (most of the time sellers will shill bid w/proxy bidding so they can get max price) and the sniper will bid on the last 2 seconds using your max bid price.

It’s never failed me once!
