Here you’ll find the latest updates about Bid-Ninja
We sincerely apologize for all of the outage over the past few days. From the DDoS (when a website is intentionally sent thousands of queries, for the exclusive purpose of taking the website offline) to QuiBids adding code to their website that removes Bid-Ninja from view if you’re using it. We have resolved all of these, but for you to continue using Bid-Ninja, YOU MUST BE USING the latest version of the CHROME or FireFox browser plugins.
Visit our installation instructions page here to get the latest version of the Chrome and/or FireFox browser plugin.
On the upside, QuiBids themselves have proved to the world just how effective our software is…they added the code to their website to try and prevent you from being able to make educated, intelligent & strategic decisions about when/how/who to bid and/or bid against.
UPDATE: QuiBids no longer has that code listed on their site. It has since been removed
We’re not incompetent, some of the issues we had are a result of QuiBids intentionally trying to make all Ninja’s not have the advantage of knowing the powerful information provided by our software. As always, we have taken care of our users though! In addition, as our way of apologizing (even though these problems were caused by things we had no control over) we’re giving everybody TWO FREE WEEKS of use of the Bid-Ninja software. Please email us at our support email address to receive this offer. (email@example.com)
You Can Now Use Bid-Ninja for Free – No Login Details Required
We understand that there are people who are very new to QuiBids and may just be testing out the waters or trying to work out some strategies. While we offer a 100% completely free trial of the fully unlocked version of Bid-Ninja for QuiBids here, it only lasts for 24 hours…and that may not be enough time for you to work out your stategy(ies).
So what we’ve done, is rolled out a completely free version of Bid-Ninja that you can use forever without spending a dime. In fact, you don’t even need a set of login details. The version that we’ve rolled out for free is limited in what it shows you. So you won’t get the full QuiBids analytics offered in the paid version or the “unlocked” free trial version, but you will get enough information that will still give you an advantage and enough information to at least form more effective strategies.
How to Use New Free Version of Bid-Ninja for QuiBids
To use this new free version of Bid-Ninja, all you have to do is install Bid-Ninja and browse to any QuiBids auction….that’s it! You won’t be asked to sign up, you won’t be asked to login and you won’t be asked to pay for anything. You simply will be shown information about the auction you’re viewing and the bidders playing in it.
We want people to see what they’ve been missing and just how helpful Bid-Ninja really is. We’re also going to be adding a TON of new features over the course of the coming weeks and we think that it’s important people can see just what innovative information & features that can be had with the Bid-Ninja QuiBids software that cannot be found anywhere else.
So go ahead, download Bid-Ninja and start slicing through your competition today!
Get On the QuiBids/DealDash/Beezid Non-Compete List
We here at the offices of Bid-Ninja frequently roll out new updates to the Bid-Ninja software. We do this so often in fact, that we’re almost constantly having to actually use our software “in real time” on real QuiBids auctions, DealDash auctions and Beezid auctions.
Sometimes we only have to place a bid or two, but sometimes we have to actually “play to win” to ensure our software is working as it is supposed to. Other times we won’t actually be in front of our computers, but have rather just setup the Bid-Ninja AutoBidder to place a few hundred bids on an auction with specific parameters.
Well We Want to Make Sure We’re Not Competing with You
We appreciate our customers, and we want to make sure that we don’t accidentally screw up your strategy (and more importantly, we don’t want to be playing against our customers). So what we’ve done is setup a “Non-Compete” function within your member profile. To add yourself to the Bid-Ninja Non-Compete list, all you have to do is open up your Member Profile here.
Once you’ve got it open, you’ll see there are 3 fields at the bottom of your profile page:
- QuiBids Username
- DealDash Username
- Beezid Username
Just enter your usernames (or just the ones of the sites you play on) within those fields and click the “update” button. If you’re a Bid-Ninja customer and you’ve entered that information on your profile, when we’re BETA testing new feature rollouts (or just playing for fun), we’ll always make sure that we’re not playing against you, our valued customer!
Today we’re letting you know about the latest new feature we’ve rolled out for our users (it’s available now)…our “interactive answering system” within the Bid-Ninja interface (pictured below). Instead of sitting there wondering what you’re looking at and having to refer to our guide or submit a support ticket asking us, you can now get the answer you’re looking for instantly by hovering your mouse over the newly added question marks (pictured in screenshot below)
There are now “question marks” within the Bid-Ninja interface, and by hovering your mouse over them, you’ll get a detailed explanation of the information the question is above. For example, in the picture abovethat shows part of the Bid-Ninja interface, we’ve hovered our mouse over the “padlock” icon question mark…have a look at what happens.
All you have to do is install Bid-Ninja and then browse to any QuiBids, DealDash or Beezid auction and you’ll see the Bid-Ninja interface appear. Login, and you’ll see the latest newly added feature and you can try it out yourself!
This is literally just the first of many new features Bid-Ninja will be releasing over the course of the coming weeks. You can make sure you know about all the new features as they come out by checking out the Bid-Ninja blog here.
Given how fast Bid-Ninja has been growing (not only for our QuiBids products, but for our DealDash & Beezid products as well), we have hardly been able to keep up with some of our new users questions. There is admittedly a lot to get familiar with when you first get started with Bid-Ninja, so we felt that it was about time we created short & concise videos that answer every question that we get the most of.
What we did was “break down” the installation and use of our software into the smallest segments possible and created videos explaining each one. This has allowed us to create very short videos that allow you as a user to quickly find the video that is going to answer your question and only your question. You won’t be stuck having to sit through a 2o minute video trying to find just that one moment that answers just your question.
For example, if you’ve been trying to figure out how to view the “forever free” auction tracker that allows you to pull up a list of all Quibids live auctions within FireFox, but you couldn’t figure out how, we’ve got a video for that (and only that)!
What about if you couldn’t figure out how to install Bid-Ninja into Google Chrome you say? No problem! We’ve got a video for that (and only that) too!
Don’t understand what each of the tabs & reports of information you’re looking at are when you first arrive at an auction? Once again, we’ve got you covered! We’ve got a video that goes over ONLY the information you see when you first arrive at an auction.
In other words, everything about our software from the analytics, to the player stats, to the autobidder to the auction tracker all have their own short video answering just what questions you’ve got on your mind.
So go ahead, if you’ve got a question, get it answered on our “video wall” here.
With the rollout of Quibids new “locked auctions” the more experienced Quibids players thought winning on Quibids would become more difficult…this couldn’t be further from the truth!
Bid-Ninja rolled out a truckload of new features that actually make winning on Quibids in combination with these new locked auctions even easier than it has ever been before. This video demonstrates just exactly how that’s possible. Now not only will you know when a Quibids auction will lock before it does, but you’ll also be able to see which bidders have and haven’t been locked out of an auction after it locks AND you’ll see which bidders will and won’t be locked out before an auction actually does!
Here is the video (watch in full screen HD to see details):
Knowing when a Quibids auction locks before it does means that you don’t need to waste bids trying to prevent yourself from being locked out. You can now just pop into an auction just before it’s going to lock, place a single bid, and then when it locks you won’t be locked out!
In addition, knowing who will and won’t be locked out means you could, for example, compare two auctions of the same type (say, a $50 gift card) and you can check which one will have less eligible bidders left in it after it locks. Would you rather play in an auction against 15 bidders or in an auction with only 8 eligible bidders? The latter of course! Using Bid-Ninja you’ll be able to see that!
You can check out the detailed screenshots of all the new Quibids/Bid-Ninja locked auction features we’ve added to make your life of winning on Quibids even easier on the linked to blog post.
So go ahead, get your piece of the action and get Bid-Ninja today!
Bid-Ninja Has Completed the Scheduled Maintenance Upgrade…and Bid-Ninja is Now Faster & Better Than it Has Ever Been in the History of It’s Existence!
As you probably already know, Bid-Ninja had a scheduled maintenance upgrade performed on December 6th. It took us longer to complete than we wanted it to (wasn’t finished until 3:00am on December 7th) which we apologize for, but once we started it we couldn’t simply stop in the middle. So, again, we do sincerely apologize for the extended outage, however it was well worth it. Bid-Ninja is now faster and more efficient than it has ever been.
We have created a short video to PROVE to you how mind blowingly fast Bid-Ninja is now (in case you want to see proof before you log into Bid-Ninja)! Click the play button below to see for yourself:
We here at the Bid-Ninja office held a contest, the winners of which would each get their share of over $350 in prizes. You can read about the Bid-Ninja Contest here.
Congratulations to the Winners!
Due to the lack of a participation in voting on the entries we have selected the entries ourselves based on the quality of each of them (as we mentioned we might do in the rules).
Here are the winners of the contest:
1st Place Grand Prize Winner ($100 Visa Gift Card) – FlyingQiBall for Thread: Use Bid Ninja to Decide: Gun’s Blazing or Walk Away!
2nd Place Winner ($50 Visa Gift Card) – Deborah for Thread: Winning with Bid-Ninja
3rd Place Winner ($50 Visa Gift Card) – designerbidder for Thread: Using BidNinja for awesome wins.
4th Place Winner (Analytics or AutoBidder Subscription) – berettaindy37 for Thread: Up to 1200 free bids a year on Quibids, sorry admin better than you $15 tip 🙂 (it’s worth noting that had this user also included a strategy on how to use this in combination with Bid-Ninja and posted it in the “Strategies When Using Bid-Ninja” forum instead of the “Strategies Without Bid-Ninja” forum, he likely would have won first place, as this tip alone is excellent (it would have depended on the strategy included of course)
5th Place Winner (Analytics or AutoBidder Subscription) – bidninja159 for Thread: The #1 strategy my experience with Quibids has taught me is…
6th Place Winner (Analytics or AutoBidder Subscription) – jodiann12 for Thread: Sid Kal’s Secret Strategies for Being a Successful Bidder on QuiBids
Thanks to all who entered! We hope that during our next contest we’ll get more people who participate!
Bid-Ninja is Will Have a Scheduled Maintenance on 12/06/2013 – Anticipate Not Having Access to Bid-Ninja from 8:00am EST to 2:00pm EST
This Scheduled Maintenance Upgrade Will Bring Improve the Speed & Efficiency of Bid-Ninja to a Level NEVER Seen Before – Bid-Ninja Will be Faster Than Ever Before!
With the recent release of all of the Bid-Ninja Locked Auction Features, we’ve grown by leaps and bounds in a very short period of time. The ability to win more auctions using Bid-Ninja with these new features has grown tenfold…in short, it’s tremendously powerful and our users have experienced this personally…so of course word has spread like wildfire.
So not only are more of our users using our software more often, but we’ve also put on more new users than ever before, resulting in literally more users using our software (and winning more auctions) at the same time than at any point in the history of Bid-Ninja. That, in combination with the Holiday shopping season, has pushed our servers to the max.
As always, we want to make sure our loyal Bid-Ninja’s have the best user experience possible. So what we’re doing is upgrading our servers and our database language to bring more speed and efficiency to you.
We know this is inconvenient, but it’s a small price to pay for the incredible speed that will come in exchange for a few hours of downtime. Please anticipate not being able to use Bid-Ninja from 8:00am EST to 2:00pm EST on December 6th, 2013.
