BIDRIVALS.COM is reaping off customers

BIDRIVALS.COM is reaping off customers

You must be thinking, how can that happen?? They market themselves as the ideal place to earn a profit and take home some real quick cash. This means that their activity should benefit the customers. To tell the truth, the reality in business is very much different from what we see forthrightly. For example, Algo trading is so glamorous that we would be tempted to try it. If you read its detailed reviews, you may be able to make out how that glamour comes into it, just click for info.

Similarly, let us get into the facts here.

For selling Nintendo DSi at 14 AUD they are making a profit of 444 AUD.
You will not believe it.. just do some basic calculation and you will say.. Oh !!!!

Product cost to them : 200 AUD
If winning bidder is @ 14 AUD there are total 700 Bidder.. you know one bid increases only 2 cents….
To bid one time you will have to buy bids.. and that cost 90 Cents.. total 700 times bid come to 630 AUD plus 14 AUD winning bidder price that comes to 644 AUD while their actual cost of product is 200(approx.. might be lower !) so the winner is BIDRIVALS.. they have generated a profit of 444 AUD by selling a Nintendo DSi @ 14 AUD only… amazing…

Believe it or not, the loser is the customer, visitor and bidder but not the BIDRIVALS.,

It is like a casino, the loser is who visit them…

Bidrivals.com has been my latest great discovery, I’ve won a few itens for a fraction of the retail price. At first I was a little bit suspicious cause the website was new and I had no information about it, but it turned out to be fantastic. The customer support is also very helpful. I do prefer them to the other auctions websites around like swoopo. It’s great fun.
Of course everybody needs to be careful when bidding online, it’s not just about throwing your money in. Study some strategies before starting and I’m sure you’ll do ok!

i totally agree with bidlier. it is a form of gambling because any number of people can bid but oly 1 will ‘win’ costing everyone else hundreds of dollars. a VERY UNETHICAL site!!

Well, nobody is forced to put their money in. Once you do it you’ve gotta be aware of the risks. Some people do lose money though but some other ones are able to make great deals. For instance, I’ve won a laptop worth 1400 NZ$ by putting 150 dollars in. Few days later I was contacted by Bidrivals saying that they couldn’t find exactly the same model to ship to me in New Zealand. So they offered me a better model worth 1700 dollars. Unfortunately people get over excited about getting expensive items for a very cheap price and just throw their money in. Again, it’s a game, in order to win you’ve gotta study some strategies, and actually spend time watching the auctions.

Dear Joshie and to all who are visiting the review of BIDRIVAL.COM here.

It is not only winning yourself, I started this discussion here to increase awareness among internet buyers when buying or bidding online.

What is happening here at BIDRIVAL.COM is, we all are loosing, It might be possible the bidder at the last will win but before that there are several users has lost 1000s of dollar before it goes to someone..

It is correct that the it is a game, but not at loss of 1000 AUD for one small item costing 200 AUD.

If you bid carefully you might win but before you there are 1000 AUD already lost by 1000 bidder, do you want to become a big looser?

Totally agree with all the negative comments. As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Absolute waste of time lining someone’s pocket. I have bid on a few items, but no amount of bids ever win. It may sound like sour grapes, but the fact remains that on one particular auction, the timer went down to 00:00:00 when I marginally got one bid in. Timer stayed where it was for at least ten seconds. All of a sudden, started the countdown again…only for the auction to last many more hours. Another time, where the timer restarted at 20 seconds or thereabouts, all of a sudden it went to 60 seconds and counted down. Sent a query regarding this to bidrivals who came back with ‘we’re checking on that’, ‘should not have done that’ etc and here’s 3 bids for your inconvenience. No further comments from them.
A Canon camera that I was watching not 4 days ago, had the same bidder as a bid agent going through all night, the following day, only to finish at 4 o’clock or so in the following morning. Can that person that won possibly have put in that many bids???? or are there ghost bidders under different pseudonyms (run by same company) to push the prices up….one would never know. Be very aware, go buy the product at the shop and you will find that at the end when you have paid the money, you will have the product in your hand to prove the purchase – and at possibly a better price…..keep away from…sounds too good to be true and certainly is.

Bidrivals are cheating.
I have also observed one bidder using bid agent for numerous articles for hours, on one occasion overnight. . On another occassion for a Canon camera which sold for about $150.00. When the incremental bids of 2cents cost 90cents to place, you can see how much money “apparently” has crossed the table. This equals about $7,000. Some how I don’t beleiave anyone would bid this amount for a $1,000 camera. Do You? They are cheating people, it is appalling.

I don’t work for them bud, I’ve won 4 times and I have no reason to complain. What makes it harder to win now is that the website is getting popular and much more people are bidding for the same items.

And again, stay out if you’re not prepared to take the risk.

One can not blame them for an effortless attempt to pay nothing for a very price item. If you wanna win you have to actually spend a few hours watching the auctions and know when it’s the best time to put your money in. Still not guaranteed. It’s a game and also takes luck. You can definitely minimize the loss if you play it right.

Saying that they’re cheating is a very serious accusation. I wouldn’t do that unless I had very concrete proofs about it.

Just checked on one that I had bid on….unsuccessfully.
On the 27th of July 09 on auction 485 for a Canon camera, the eventual bidder had actually placed in total 4252 bids for a cost of $3826.80.
The price of the actual camera is $2717.26. The price that the camera went for was $374.08. Do the maths….total bids from the eventual winner was 3826.80 + sale price of the item at the end of the auction 374.08 for a grand total of 4200.88….and that’s for a camera that is quoted on bidrivals as being worth 2717.26. Not to mention all the other bidders who went against the eventual winner (myself included). The auction went for at least 24 hours…by my reckoning, even more, perhaps closer to 30 hours. The bids are going in conservatively every 20 seconds at 90 cents each…that’s being conservative when you consider that bids are coming in left right and centre MORE than 3 times a minute. Either the winner has too much money, had invested too much at a certain stage to back out – had he, he would have come out way ahead. Maybe he did not think that it would have eaten up so many bids (4252 x .90)…but it did. Or something more sinister….ghost bidders from the company to push up the price and suck us all in…..never know. The eventual winner would have had to spend a lot of money to buy those 4252 bids…..

I’ve been watching this site for a few days now and am sure there are ghost bidders. People are losing major amount of money so be warned people stay away!. wait until fair go or some tv show gets word of it. I’ve had plenty of friends try this site and they’ve never won!!! not once!!! has anyone ever won of is the whole thing just a big scam!! I think so!!!! I watched a laptop go for $300+ do you know how much money they made from that more than $15000 thats insane!!! nobody wins…….

mystichman

I must agree with both points here, first, it is a gamble one that cost a lot to the customers. There are no guarantees of winning, in other words is a suckers game.

I’ve been doing some calculations and found how amazing this business is, if you for example calculate Au$100.00 divided by $0.02 = 5000 bids, now multiply 5000 bids by $0.90c the result $4.500 that is the real price the bidrival are getting for a $100 item. In my opinion this should be illegal and should stop because it does really suck you to believe that you’re doing a good deal, but the reality is far from that.

Yeah some people maybe luck to get at the end of an auction and win, but trust me, you’ve to stay tuned the entire day/night to get to this point.

cheers

slevin1212 your sooooo much smarter than all the other punters on bidrivals who all have absolutely no strategies in place……its a horse race slevin, except you bet on every inch or centimetre in the hope your horse will cross the line first. But then, there is always someone who thinks “I’ll wait to the end then bid.” Get real” you can’t see the end and a lot of people go over their limit and continue to tell themselves ” just a little more..”

lol I like how the auctions say “bla bla bla BIDRIVALS loses $820” on http://www.bidrivals.com/nz/TV/Bravia40FullHDV5500LCDSony
but then that line dissapears when they’re making at least $9117 on this auction: http://www.bidrivals.com/nz/Photo/CanonEOS50DEF-S18-200mmf35-56ISLens
where the camera retails for only $3149.

Smarties.

I’m with Joshie and mysticheman as well – it’s a smart system but it really is for suckers.

Many people have been setting up multiple accounts on BidRivals and putting them all in the same auction at the same time with the autobidder on, in an attempt to push the other bidders out. Once they’re alone they can easily win setting all the accounts to run out of bids at the same round. I’ve seen that many times after I lost Au$100. 🙁
BidRivals migh not cheat (i guess?) but there are heaps of other people cheating. Their system is not good.

marcollie….how can you call that cheating….if indeed people do have multiple accounts, they have to spread their bought bids across however many identities they have and it is their bids that are being eaten up especially if other bid agents bid against them. And if other bidders don’t come in, that’s their choice. There are no guarantees that their bids will not expire before the unique bid agent goes against them and possibly beats them. It is not easy to win, it is a bit of strategy and a lot of luck…if you happen to be the last one standing after all the others are dried out.
I only wish I could put a million bids in and be guaranteed of winning at least one thing…..Bear in mind that you are going against people from all different time zones…you have Australians and New Zealanders on one hand …who when they are asleep, the Europeans are awake and vice versa…so at any one time, there are actually people watching it live and the person watching it live has perhaps the most chance of jumping in when there are the least amount of bidders to contend with. If people do a have multiple aliases, they still have to buy bids…nothing is free.

I am one of the lucky few who has won on bidrival however thats where it ends.
After paying the final price and e-mail confirmation, I never received the item and they never reply to my e-mails.
They are a scam and will take your money no matter what.
I have been coming back to the site and have noticed more and more people are now taking part and lossing their money.

They have had more than their ten business days to send it.
In my account, the won auctions it still says paid, waiting for shipping.
The live chat went silent when I ask about my winning item.
A 24hr phone call centre would be an advantage.
I only brought 45 bids and scored on a small prize. (ipod)
I haven’t lost out too much but their would have to be others who have experianced the same problem as me.

Does anyone know if there is some Global type of oversight or enforecement agency that these companies should go to? I saw the site, watched it, and eventually fell for it despite my concerns. Thankfully, I didn’t spend a lot of money buying the ‘right’ to bid. What ‘AGill’ wrote on July 20th (I think) is totally false. We have no way of knowing, but I suspect he is part of the scheme.
I used the online assistant often in order to understand and learn – as there was little available on-line to explain things. They were UNhelpful 85% of the time and, though English was their chosen language to use, and I am a native English speaker, the answers were as though they couldn’t understand the questions, or as though there were someone standing behind them telling them what to say in order not to ‘give up’ too much information. Where do the products come from (I wanted to avoid surprise sales taxes and customs issues) – they come from a local vendor. OK, what does THAT mean? If I want to plan a strategy, I want to see how the bid agent worked versus the other individual bidders. If both hit the key at the same time, which bid goes first and which second? Is their some kind of ‘bumping’ technology? What about time frames – If I research a product that was ‘sold’ I want to know what time of the day it was – it took about 15 minutes and MANY back and forths to get them to answer what they use as a ‘standard’ time, if any.
Do you know where they are resident? Who law governs if you don’t in fact receive a product or it comes damages? Who can be held responsible for violating any consumer protection laws, and under what system?
In the end, I bought some bidding rights and bid VERY CAREFULLY. I am CERTAIN (I was not as jaded as I seem now at the time) that the bidder, who was using their bidding agent, won when there were other individual bidders STILL participating. Including ME. I wrote to their online assistant who wrote back that it was a timing problem with my computer. That I needed to re-load. Well, that’s nice to find out. What did she mean by ‘re-load’ so my clock worked. Did she mean refreshing the screen (using send and receive)? If so, was it necessary to do constantly? I was told not to worry. That was good advice – as the giver of the advice got paid and I lost the money I spent having ‘bought’ the right to bid.

I have tried playing on the site and spend only $66 by buying the lowest package 3 times. This is just for fun but I won’t play again coz you never know whether there is any invisible bidder at all in the site to control the bidding process. Unlike lotteries shown on TV, every bidding you have done are isolated with others and you have no way of knowing who you are bidding with. Their company has a complete control over the users. Since every bidding processes are isolated to all users, they can actually control who can be the winner on certain price level.

Even that they can calculate the profit of the month and try to minimize the winning by using an invisible bidder to eat up your bids.

In addition, if the site is over popular, they will even earn more and the chances of winning will get less.

I heard rumors that website is going down cause appareantly yes they’ve been posting fake bids in order to get more money. I’m not sure it’s true though, just rumors. Since there’s so many negative comments about it, it should be taken as a warning for people not to put their money in anyway.

hi duped re:the eventual bidder had actually placed in total 4252 bids
how can i see or work out how many bids someone has made in total? thanks

 duped wrote at 12:43am on Aug 25, 2009:

duped

hi nzl09….if you go into a closed auction (right hand side, click on the one you want to see), if you have’nt placed bids in that auction, you will see where it says ‘price, your savings, bid rivals lost…etc, that the number of bids placed by the winner will show up as ‘your bids’. Now if you have placed bids and were unsuccessful, the ‘your bids’ will actually be the bids you placed…it won’t show you the winner’s bids.

There are many happy traders who have been able to generate huge daily profits using the binary automated trading software. This is what traders have been waiting for and the platform lets one take trades with ease with little or no knowledge of trading. However, if you are a professional trader you can make use of the algorithm in the software to increase the odds of making money on your trades.

 

This review will let you know why the auto trading software has made life simpler. Trading is an art that takes a lot of practice and patience to master. Most of them who enter the trading world start losing out soon. This is because they are not knowledgeable or do not know how to do proper risk management. With the trading software, all this is taken care of.

 

Trade plan

 

The binary trading software uses algorithms that have been written by experts and this lets the software generate trading calls. The algorithm is a step by step procedure about how the software should take a trade. It has a few rules which when met will let the trade be executed. This is nothing but trade plan and when the trade plan is followed step by step the probability of a loss is also minimized.

 

Deal with emotions

 

Most traders start to lose in the market and then give up hope and eventually stop trading. The main reason for this is the emotions that creep in on every trade. Every new trader is faced to deal with emotions and the two basic emotions that need to be controlled when trading is fear and greed. When the market is going higher the trader is greedy and wants more and more and thus keeps holding on to a profitable trade for long. In turn, the trade goes opposite in direction and profitable trade also becomes a loss. The other very important emotion that traders have to deal with is fear. Here they fear and as soon as the trade does not go in their direction they do not wait for the stop loss to reach and exit the trade only to see that the trade again bounces back and starts to go in the profitable direction.

 

Technical analysis is used by the software to generate trading signals. This also lets you do proper risk management on every trade. There is the robotic software that let you trade manually or using the algorithm. You can choose what best suits you to participate in the trades.

 

This ensures highly relevant ads to users hence attaining highest ROI for advertisers. The owners of these mobile internet sites, also called publishers, earn consistently high revenue from the advertisements shown on their pages thus maximizing the benefits of their mobile property

Bandcamp Overview

We’re a publishing platform for bands, or, anthropomorphically/arthropodically-speaking, your fifth, fully geeked-out Beatle — the one who keeps your very own website humming and lets you get back to making great music and building your fan base.

Yes, I am a big fan of his platform just like I am a fan of Snap Cash Binary. Click for info here.

I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard for the first time one of my colleagues actually traded for ten days without corroding his balance. Every time, a co worker signed up for a new binary trading account, the second day itself his trading account would show a zero meaning all his hard earned money has gone down the drain. Invariably all the software has let the people down, but this mine is different.

So, what is the difference?

First of all, there is no exaggeration on the site at all. And we mean it when we say that. The site does not play on the human psychology and claims to be able to be 100 percent accurate in all the trade signals. This site pegs its performance at a realistic 86 percent. So, when they say that you cannot make $1000 in a day, it means that slowly but steadily your income will grow and how!

Also, the owner of the software is an actual person and he can be reached to ask questions or demand clarifications. The questions we asked him on the website were answered to our satisfaction within five hours and we do not smell a rat. This man, Austin Ford, the developer is a real person unlike other sites that employ actors from micro-sites like Fiverr to act as the developer in the sales video et al.

No need for downloading the software either!

The software is a cloud based one and therefore there is no need for downloading the software and occupying space on your devices. This also means that the application is not device specific. As long as you have mobile connectivity you can log on from any device using your password and we thing that is really cool!

This one is definitely not a scam. So, if trading in online binary digits been your passion but you did not know how to go about it, here is your best chance. The program is completely auto pilot and therefore there is no need for you to learn the nitty gritties either. Sign up now!

If this all sounds as highly satisfactory to you as we hope, we invite you to check out the screencast, peruse a site already powered by Bandcamp, or cut straight to the chase and sign up for a free account. Welcome!

KickApps’ on demand social media applications enable web publishers and marketers to quickly and easily grow, engage and monetize online audiences. Their platform features a broad spectrum of…

The Quantum Code software has given many people a life changing success rate who have done online investment is what is being told. Quantum Code is said to analyze and calculate automatically at a very high speed.

The algorithms written for this software are running constantly at the background of the trading process, but it does not create any disturbance to the actual process. The software makes use of Near Quantum Speed tech, which powers the software to put behind all the other systems used for trading. This is the 8th version of Quantum Code software that has been released to the common people. This version has been modified and adjusted to make it perfect so that it will serve the purpose it is meant for. Depending on the investment done by the user, the software makes about $6,000 to $9,000 per day. Please click the following post

After reading all these claims made by the creator, it is obvious that lot of people will be attracted to this. Mr. Crawford has put up a lot of funny review that shows that his miraculous software has given good review for which we must appreciate him. There is also a very not so impressing video that comes up immediately when you open the site that make 99% promises and 1% explanation of how binary options trading system works. The robot trader is free of cost. You need not pay any amount, tax or any percentage if you win a profit. Once you have signed up for Quantum Code, the user will be getting lifetime free license to access all the versions and updated versions.

After seeing all the fancy cars, big house and constant reminder of extraordinary returns, if you decide to sign up, you need to give your email address to gain the full access of the website. After which your mail inbox will be filled with scam mails. Another truth about this Quantum Code software is that, it is one of the worst platform used for trading to make profits because this software seems unbelievably simply copy of trading system which is said to be used by reputed stock market brokers.

Like any other scam software, the user has to deposit certain amount in their platform and the user thinks that after this the system is completely automated and will not fail to provide profit, but this is not true. When the investor uses Quantum Code, there is no mention of what type of trade is conducted and who is the authorized person who is managing it.

    Before we go on to list the top industries, we would like to tell you about a trading phenomenon that has taken over the digital world since the year 2008. It is called trading in binary options. The trading is entirely done online unlike the actual trading that happens physically at stock markets.

    Why this is a boon to the traders?

    Being able to trade online in binary options such as stocks, shares, commodities and foreign exchange is indeed good news for the binary trader because he need not even step out of his home or the comfort of his favorite lounge chair. All he needs to have is a smart device and good data connectivity and he is set!

    No need to know the nitty gritties either!

    Another good thing about trading online is that they can make use of the binary options robot which is the automatic mode of trading on the trading websites. This mode enables the auto pilot mode of the account and the robot efficiently does the job of proxy trading in place of the trader.

    So, now there is no need for the trader to even sit in front of the screen the whole day long and deliberate what trade he must or must not undertake. The robot decides which trades will potentially be good for the trader and trades on his behalf. Meanwhile, the trader can engage in some other work and be able to earn his livelihood.

    The profit that accumulates from binary trading can form supplementary source of income for him and is going to be beneficial to him in the long run! Imagine the world of possibilities that he can afford if he has two modes of income. It can help him make his life more comfortable and at the same time give him work satisfaction.

    Not all the binary robots are genuine:

    Naturally, once a particular thing becomes a hit, a lot of fraudsters are going to take advantage out of the hype. Similarly, a lot of fraud robots are in the market and have been quite successful in duping thousands of traders to the tune of millions of dollars.

    If you come across a binary option robot but do not know if it is genuine or a rogue, do yourself a favor and log on to https://top10binarydemo.com/.

Spotify Overview

Spotify is a new way to enjoy music. Simply download and install, before you know it you’ll be singing along to the genre, artist or song of your choice. With Spotify you are never far away from the song you want.

There are no restrictions in terms of what you can listen to or when. Forget about the hassle of waiting for files to download and fill up your hard drive before you get round to organising them. Spotify is instant, fun and simple.

 

Spotify can be used on almost all advanced devices. It can be used on iOS phones, Windows Phone, Android, all versions of windows OS, mac OS, Linux computers and tablets. You can use any of the following devices and go to the website and search for your favorite song. You can search for the song depending upon various categories such as

  • If you know the song by the name of the album, you can search by providing album name.
  • If you know the song by the artist name, search by typing artist name.
  • One of the easiest way is by creating a playlist and add all your favorite songs in it.

Spotify has around 30 million songs on the website. This website can be accessed and searched for files for free of cost since these are all primary services. It has lot of other features also, but the user needs to pay and subscribe on the website to access this.

As the website became popular in November 2011, they launched a Spotify app as well. A third-party was involved in developing many other applications which could be include in Spotify software itself. However, when we allow third-party to include something in the website it might lead to linking scam website like carbonfx. Here you have the full review. It included song recommendation, synchronized lyrics and music review kind of services to the users. The Spotify website was updated with many new features which had all the features included in the Spotify app and therefore the app was terminated in October.

A new button known as “Spotify Play Button” was introduced in the website, upon pressing which you would get access to the inbuild music player which could be attached to your blogs, websites, and your social media page. This music player would let the users play and listen to music on the existing page and need not go to Spotify website every time they wanted to listen to music.

Because music is social, Spotify allows you to share songs and playlists with friends, and even work together on collaborative playlists, Friday afternoon in the office might never be the same again! We’re music lovers like everyone else.
