The Main Window

For a complete description of how to use Bidwatcher, check out the Quick Start Guide.

The list at the bottom of the window are the auctions that Bidwatcher is currently monitoring for you.

Across the top are icons to activate Bidwatchers functions, and the status window.

Preferences Window

This is where you configure Bidwatcher to do what you want. At a minimum, you should enter your eBay name. In order to bid or send email, you will also need to enter your password. (This password is stored on disk, so make sure your ~/.bidwatcher directory is secure.)

For more details about this screen, see the Configure bidwatcher section in the Quick Start Guide.

Adding a New Auction

When you want Bidwatcher to monitor another auction, press the icon, and you will get this "add auction" window.
