So I am looking for a new sniper, I used Auction Sniper for 5 years, but the last couple days its worked 2-3 hours a day with 'Ebay Requires Account Verification" blocking all snipes the majority of the time.

Is GIXEN a good replacement? I like having a button/link I can click (in CHrome) when viewing an auction to set a snipe. I assume GIXEN can do this?

I don't mind paying, but I need something that works lol

Yes, I believe Gixen is a much better replacement at a fraction of cost.

The browser button is available only in Firefox, and is called "autosnipe".

As for the verification problem, the same thing happened a few times in Gixen, but not lately, unless if you schedule several snipes that end at the same time.

Good to know, I snipe probably 30 items a week, so fairly heavy user.
The only other site I looked at that I kinda like is EZ Sniper (it has a sniper pop up thing that works in all browsers)

I really need something thats super quick to add snipes too, or else I am spending a lot of time entering info, instead of browsing eBay or working.

I snipe 50 to 60 auctions per week, so similar to you.

I like the no nonsense web interface provided here for snipe entry, that works on all browsers that I know of. It isn't as fancy looking as some other sites.. but it does the job and is easy to use, which is what I believe you want from a service like this.

I just added 21 snipes and bought the mirror service
Hope thats all I need to do lol

How does the forum login work? I see I am still a guest? would appear the login at the top of all the pages is only for the snipe portion?

You have all the best available options here once you have a Mirror subscription.

Yes, that login at the top is for the sniping pages only.

This forum is, intentionally, left open to anyone, not just Gixen Mirror subscribers or even registered Gixen users. As such, it is available for all who might wish to seek help, advice and support about sniping, whatever their status.

Mario has set up some Forum accounts, on request, for regular users of this community area, like myself... but in most cases a guest type interaction is sufficient in order to get the support that most are in search of on an occasional basis.

This has been going on some time. It's infuriating.

My discussion with Mario the owner of Gixen is in the Impressions forum under the heading

Unknown error (3) NOT FIXED!
