I am disappointed, not only in the developer of this software (mario?) but also in the community that seems to love Gixen so much.

I researched this sniper and it seemed legit, the very basic webpage seemed crude but I didnt need anything complicated. So I set my chosen countries to UK and did my settings etc. placed my snipe (N: 111304997595) and set it to bid up to GBP 21.

The bidding ended at GBP 18.99 with no sign of my bid whatsoever. With the error message being 'LISTING REMOVED', the listing was not removed, and it ended at the exact time it said it had for the last week I was watching it. Obviously I have not lost out on a big expensive item, but I found a good deal that I needed and wanted to test this service with a small snipe.

It's safe to say I will be changing my ebay password, and never returning to Gixen. Keep your wits about you prospective Gixen users.

I agree that the listing is still available on Ebay.

Obviously I do not know what went wrong with this snipe.

However I would like to attest that failures that Gixen technology could and should avoid are rare, at about 1 in 200 on a single server.. much less on a Mirror subscription. Obviously that also means that around 1 in 200 new users testing the free version will likely experience a failure at their first attempt. Even with that in mind your failure does appear somewhat unusual though, I personally have never seen a 'LISTING REMOVED' status or error here on Gixen... Even though I have experienced cases where the listing was removed by Ebay... not for some years on something I have an active snipe left at the original ending time of the auction though.

I can also assure you that your credentials are at absolutely no danger of compromise, once the snipe is removed there is not even a recoverable record of what your password was recorded on the Gixen servers, that was a commitment made, and kept, by Mario from the very start of this service many years ago.

outside-the-boxx, my apology, the response Gixen received was mis-interpreted, the listing was not removed. However, something was wrong nevertheless, as ebay displayed additional login screens for your account. At this point, I am not sure why. Have you successfully sniped any other items?
