What is BidPanther?

BidPanther is a Google Chrome browser extension that transforms every auction window into an informative heads up display to help you win on Quibids. We monitor everything happening on QuiBids down to the microsecond so that you will always have the most up to date information on every auction. This give you a powerful advantage because you will know how many bids your competition has placed as well as what kind of bidder they are. BidPanther also sports the Quick-Fire Auto-Bidder that can place bids with as little as 0.2 seconds on the auction clock (results may vary) which means you only bid when you have to resulting in increased auction longevity.

How Does BidPanther Help Me Win?

There are three main features that give you an advantage over other players.

  1. Knowing how many bids every bidder has placed in every auction. This means knowing when to place bids resulting in a more effective bidding strategy as well as increased odds of winning.
  2. The Quick-Fire Auto-Bidder increases your bid precision so that you only bid when you absolutely have to which ultimately stretches your bids so that you can stay in the auction longer.
  3. Historical data and advanced statistics provide you with insight on the competition’s bidding patterns as well as access proven entry points for every auction. Entering the auction at the right time means you’ll be in the winner’s circle more often.

How does BidPanther know all this data?

BidPanther has several cloud-based servers that are constantly monitoring the QuiBids site. We log every bid placed by every user and store them in a remote database which is then relayed to your BidPanther enabled browser. All of this data gives you instant access to every bid placed in any auction as well as access tons of historical data on your competitors and products you’re bidding on.

What do I need to start using BidPanther?

A computer with Google Chrome installed, a QuiBids account and some bids.

How does the price prediction work?

Computers built with cybernetic Panther brains of course! Ok, we have not wired panther brains into computers (not yet at least..) What we actually did was took tons of auction data directly from QuiBids (over 20,000 auctions) and fed it into a super computer to spit out a highly advanced and accurate formula to predict the ending price of the auction and wired it into you BidPanther auction display. This formula will monitor the live auction for changes to predict the selling price of the auction and is highly secretive so you are not going to find it with any other so called tracking software. We can’t tell you everything, but what we can say is we look at the total number of bidders, what time the auction started, if there is a Bid-O-Matic present, the auction type, and a few other variables to predict the closing price. Because some of this data changes (like total bidders) the prediction will change throughout the auction.

Are you affiliated with Quibids?

No, BidPanther is NOT affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by QuiBids.

Will anyone know I am using BidPanther?

No, not unless you tell someone. Since BidPanther is a browser extension QuiBids see you as a regular Google Chrome user. We go even further by encrypting all information between our servers and your browser as well as other builtin security measures just to make sure your are nobody will know you are using BidPanther.

Important: Do NOT tell anybody at QuiBids that you’re using or have used BidPanther. They frown upon the use of this software and it can get your account frozen, locked and/or deactivated if you were to tell them.

Is there a user manual on how to use BidPanther?

Absolutely! You can download our BidPanther strategy guide by clicking below:

BidPanther-Strategy-Guide

If I have a problem or need help then how do I get a hold of you?

We have a live chat feature active on Monday-Friday 8am-8pm where you can ask us anything. You can also send us an email on our Contact Page and we’ll respond ASAP. If all else fails then please give us a call at 855-802-8394

What is the difference between BidPanther Pro and BidPanther Basic?

BidPanther Pro is fully unlocked and all features are available whereas Basic is an extremely downgraded version. With Basic you will not have access to Bidder History/Stats, most product statistics are hidden, and the auto-bidder is disabled.

If Quibids doesn't want you to give bidders this information then why do you do it?

QuiBids is a shopping website and we feel access to information makes you a better shopper. We also believe complete transparency of the penny auction arena. That means knowing everything about other bidders so that you know you are being treated fairly. Simply taking QuiBids’ word that they are treating their users fairly is a form of policing themselves. BidPanther helps users see that auction limits are being enforced and that everyone is being treated fairly.

You may be using a BidPanther Basic (Free Plan) account which has very limited features. To check visit a QuiBids auction, login to BidPanther and on the Auction Vitals tab you should see a statement “Thank You For Choosing BidPanther Pro/Basic” If it says Basic, then that is why you do not have access to many of the features. If it says Pro then please try the try resetting your Chrome browser.

It says "Thank You For Choosing BidPanther Basic!" but I am a Pro user. What gives?

Are there any hidden fees?

No hidden fees! That means no setup fees or extra charges. You only pay for the plan you register for.

Please Note: Our billing system does verify your credit card by placing a temporary authorization of $1 which will be removed in 24 hours. We have to do this to cut down on fraudulent accounts.

Why was I charged $1 for the free trial?

The $1 charge you see is actually a temporary authorization to verify your credit card is active and that you are in fact, a real human being. The authorization hold is usually removed within 24 hours.

Why do you charge for BidPanther Pro?

It’s not easy monitoring every bid placed on QuiBids and it’s definitely not cheap. First, we have to pay for our cloud servers as well as to have the software developed to monitor QuiBids. Then we have to host everything on a fast server so that BidPanther users can access the data quickly. Finally we are constantly working on making BidPanther better which results in continuous development costs. In other words, we have to charge a fee to stay in business. Oh, and if we just gave BidPanther away for free then the software wouldn’t really be helpful.
