Thank you very much John. I did not know we can check retracted bids. I looked into the shill bidder account, and he/she has 14 retracted bids in the last 6 months, and 86% of the bids are with this seller. So, it is very shady indeed. I shall report to ebay. Thanks for your help!

You (and the seller) were a victim of bid shielding.

At the bottom of the bidding history, you'll see the following:

Code:
p***l(3)
   
Retracted:GBP 199.00
   
Bid:9 Apr 2019 at 11:32:02AM PDT
Retracted:9 Apr 2019 at 11:38:34AM PDT


Since n***r(11) placed their bid at 11:31:53AM PDT, it's clear that p***l(3) placed their bid right afterward in order to block late bids.

You should contact eBay customer support and report this.

I placed a snipe on gixen for Ebay item 303116710375. My max bid is ÂGBP 105, and it says bid under asking price. But the item was sold for ÂGBP 52. And I did not see my bid on the listing at all. Anyone can tell what went wrong? I did not place a bid manually, only the snipe. A bit disappointed to lose that item!
Sad
