    Hello,
    I am thinking about developing an application on my own free time (web or
    maybe even windows client) that watches eBay listings, places last seconds
    winning bids, etc. I am sure someone has already thought of this or done it.
    Is there any Web Services for this purpose. I looked on Ebay site, but could
    not find any mentions of any webservices. Also can I make request through
    HTTP programmatically and parse html that comes back? Has anyone done
    anything like that; any thoughts, suggestions, links....
    Thank you

    Yes, there are web services available:

    http://developer.ebay.com/DevProgram/index.asp

    With a google search you can turn up some articles on using the API
    from .NET. Let me know if you need any tips.
