That's just because you don't need this item really bad and accept loosing it when someone bids higher (happens all the time with BIN auctions) or just use BIN.

This one is a perfect example, 25EUR to 36EUR is a substantial difference.

Tronik, the problem was that your maximum bid was over the buy-it-now price, and eBay wouldn't accept it as such.

P.S. Why the message was "BID UNDER ASKING PRICE": after entering the specified maximum bid, Gixen received a page asking for the amount to be corrected. This is usually an indication of bid too low (though in this case it was "bid too high", which is unusual), so Gixen misunderstood the received screen.

Hello,

I scheduled a bid for the ebay item 230317935976. The auction started by 24.99 Euro, my automatic gixen my bid was 36 Euro, nobody has made a bid, and my sheduled gixen's neither! The status message "Bid under asking price"

Why?

Thanks,
Tronik
