I wondered about this and found the answer you gave. I fully agree with your process and reasoning.

In short, what this means is that the sellers reserve was more than 103.70 EUR.

Gixen does place the bid you ask it to.

Ebay doesn't display the bid that was entered if there are no other bids higher than it, it only displays it as one bid increment more than the next highest bid.

So no one, especially not the seller can tell you actually bid much more... you don't really want them to know that you (well Gixen on your behalf) did, do you, otherwise the best they will do for you is relist with a reserve only just below that amount, since they would then already know that is what you are willing to pay... ?

It's just how Ebay works.. but if you think about it, that's how it should work as it is in your best interests.

I have set a snipe for an auction to the amount of 103.70 EUR. (292461614788)
Gixen placed the bid of 86.00 EUR and unfortunately missed the vendors reserve price. therefore i have missed the auction.

Why did Gixen place a bid of 86,00 EUR ... and not my max of 103,70 EUR.

Are there any explanations for this?
