A word of caution for bidders not familiar with auctions that have a reserve set: If you bid - either at eBay or with a snipe via gixen - and your bid amount is equal to or higher than an unmet reserve, your bid/snipe automatically jumps to the reserve price set by the seller.
This is the exception to eBay bid increment rules. Since no bid lower than a reserve is ever going to win, if you actually bid equal to or more than the reserve amount your bid immediately jumps to the reserve to satisfy the auction requirement.
eBay's help pages have gone absolutely stupid and you won't find this information there. But this point has been covered in the Community pages more than once. Like here:

Sellers can still offer 'Second Chance Offer's after an auction has completed, so I don't think it is actually necessary to expose your maximum bid early.

In this case, you should place your bid manually at least a day in advance - otherwise the seller won't have time to accept the highest bid since it would be placed in the last 10 seconds

This is exactly what Gixen already does... It's Ebay that has decided that in all instances where you don't actually win, the bid is displayed as one bid increment more than the next highest bid.
Also Ebay won't accept any bid that is not at least one bid increment more than the current high bid, perhaps this is why your bid was not submitted in this case ?

Post subject: Reserve not met = no bid?
Can it still submit my highest bid even though the reserve is not met, this is due to the seller still has the option to accept the highest bid.
