Hello! First of all, thanks for Gixen:) Please help me, my maximum bid was GBP 120,99 I won the auction with GBP 120 (buy it now price) the second highest bid was GBP 70. Can you explain me what happened? Of course I am OK with this price as well, but can’t understand why the difference is so high.. Anyway I am a Mirror subscriber..Thank you Smile

Please can you tell us the auction number, without that it's very hard to say for sure.

My best guess at this point is that perhaps the seller had a reserve on the auction of 120.

Unless you examine the bid page after the auction has completed you also can't be sure that the second highest bid was actually 70, it might have been much higher than that if you are just looking at what the price was before your bid was placed. This is because Ebay doesn't display any more of a maximum bid than is necessary, until it's outbid.

Thank you for the reply. Item number is 264176934223 , but I think you’re right about the reserved price as I also thought. (According to the bidding history there were only 4 bids and 2nd highest was 70.) Anyway I’m impressed about Gixen, always get great deals.

Yes, there was a reserve.

If you look on the bidding page near the top below 'Winning bid: GBP 120.00' it says 'Reserve met', that's how you can tell.
