As detailed here the bid increment is GBP 2 at that auction price.

The auction price was GBP 60 from 11 seconds before that auction ended, so with anything less than a 12 second offset your bid would have been rejected by Ebay.

Thanks Cupid for your reply. So I should have bid GBP 62 or greater to win the auction?
I have checked for the bidding increments before I placed the bid on Gixen, and I am sure that I found an eBay increment listing which up to GBP 100, it was only 1 Sterling. Maybe I am being played some tricks Razz

I don't remember the bid increments changing recently, but I'm not absolutely certain on that, perhaps you were looking at the bid increments in a different currency, on a different Ebay site ?

In order to be accepted your bid would either have had to be GBP 62 or placed before the price rose to GBP 60 (which would have required an offset of 12 or more). However neither would necessarily have resulted in a win as we don't know what the eventual winning bid actually was and it could quite easily have been more than that. All we can know for certain now is that had your bid been accepted the eventual price would have been more than GBP 60.
