It seems Gixen did not bid on an item, even though the snipe was set up in advance

item id: 391584166828


thank you

What status did Gixen give this snipe both on the Main and Mirror tabs, after the auction had finished?

Please disregard this issue,

I think there has been a problem with my credentials,

I think I mistyped my password... I was too confident because it accepted my credentials right away

are you planning to add a feature, where Gixen validates the credentials, so the user would be aware if they are incorrect?

Thank you

When you log in for the first time, or you change your credentials, Gixen does check them with Ebay.

What makes you think Gixen has accepted invalid credentials?

'Scheduled' means Gixen still plans to place a bid when the auction has not yet completed. Are you claiming that an auction that has finished still has that status?

Do you not have a Mirror subscription or was this snipe a part of a Group?

well, that is weird then,

I am pretty sure I entered wrong credentials at first, because the keyboard language was changed, and I didn't receive any error messages, also was able to create snipes.

yes, when the bid ended, the status was still scheduled, and if I checked eBay the item finished without any bids,
now I cannot see them because I corrected my credentials, and the snipes vanished

I do not have a subscription, do I need a one in order for the tool to work?

also, I didn't set a group for the items


nevertheless, I will try again, and make some screenshots as well

Let me explain how things work. In order to avoid too many login requests sent to eBay, Gixen saves hash of the last successful password and checks future logins against it.

If you change your ebay password, you can still login to Gixen with the old password only until you log in for the first time with the new password.

You cannot, however, ever log in with the password that was never a correct one. The only so-called "window" in which you can have snipes scheduled with an incorrect password is if they are scheduled with an old ebay password.
