VieBuy 4.4 released

VieBuy.com is now running version 4.4

This update enables the option to include Auctions with Best Offer when searching for BIN listings.  This option has no effect when searching for auctions or All Listings, since they are already included.

Items found by this feature will have Auction: added before the title.

eBay has forced Best Offer on some auction listings without the seller’s prior consent, so buyers may object to offers in some cases.

eBay does not currently allow auction listings to have both Best Offer and Buy It Now, so these listings will only display an option to view the item without a buy button.   It is possible that both options could be available if eBay forces the Best Offer option on an auction with Buy It Now set.

If the version number displayed at the top of the page is not 4.4, refresh the web page to run the current version.  You may need to clear your cache it still doesn’t load the new code.

Viebuy 3.9 Released

VieBuy.com is now running version 3.9

View buttons and ImageOnly mode now land on a faster item detail page by default.  The preview popup in Image Only mode has been replaced by the item detail page.

The item detail page provides a faster workflow for reviewing item details before purchase. It uses much less bandwidth and typically loads faster than the eBay item listing page.

This option can be disabled in Settings.

If you have issues with the site appearance, please clear your cache and reload the page.

BINSniper Sidebar 4.0 Released

BINSniper Sidebar Browser Extension (webextension add-on) has been uploaded to Mozilla Add-ons and is now available.    This new edition is a streamlined version of prior releases designed to work well with the new requirements of Firefox and back to BINSniper’s roots.

Documentation:   BINSniper Sidebar Firefox Add-on for eBay

Add-on page:  https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/binsniper-sidebar-for-ebay/

You can also install approved versions thru the Firefox menu: Tools->Addons and then search for BINSniper.

Thank you for your patience.


  • New priority based icons replace the stars and colors.
  • Sorting is simplified.
  • This release is focused on fixed price items and new auctions listed with Buy It Now.
  • Auctions w/ Best Offer are now supported.
  • New display modes

The supported prior legacy add-on releases will continue to work under older Firefox releases until our migration to these new apps are completed.  Uptime is our number one priority.

 

VieBuy 3.8 Released

An update to VieBuy.com has been released on the site.  This corrects an issue with the file export feature.  Recent browser releases are blocking the mechanism used in prior releases for security reasons.

The export feature has changed so that instead of a popup appearing, you will be prompted to save a file.

The exported files can be imported using the settings option.  You can use this feature to backup your filters, or to copy your filters from one browser to another on the same computer or different computers.

 

Release Status – BINSniper Sidebar for Firefox Quantum 57

This post is being updated regularly with current status, please check back.

Complete!  Posted!  Available!  Unbelievable!

Thanks again for your patience.

Poll results:  incognito/privacy mod is nice to have, but not critical.   As it turns out, Firefox does not yet implement what we need to be compatible with incognito mode, so this is a future wishlist item.

Documentation of the new feature is complete and available at:  BINSniper Sidebar Firefox Add-on for eBay    There may be some minor doc updates yet.  These docs were adapted from prior releases and there may be some changes needed to make sure they are current all the way thru.  This will be done on an on-going basis and does not impact the release.

Aside from scheduling and other time demands, the majority of issues delaying this were related to the WebExtension migration, which was more trouble than expected and required some workarounds.

Thank you for your patience.
