My maximum bid for item 254007119486 was GBP 85
The winning bid was of GBP 71.50 and Gixen has told me that my bid is under the asking price.

Any ideas of what happened or why?

Thanks!

Is it possible that you already had a manual bid submitted, or used another service that submitted bid for you?

No, I added the snipe through the firefox extension, that’s all I did differently, as normally I do it through Gixen’s site.

I had the same problem today -- I bid 31.50 on item # 312359038399, and it went for 7.50 -- both the seller and I lost out! The entry says "bid below asking price".

That item was bracketed by two other items that ended just before and just after, both of which I bid on with Gixen and won.

I had no other service set up, nor a manual bid -- I was at work at the time the auction ended.

What gives? A glitch?

I am still looking at this - there was indeed several cases that I couldn't explain - the status returned was "bid under asking price", there was no issue with the price and no retracted bids.

Cupid, mario:

Cupid is correct; the item number was 332917417540.

Sorry, y'all! Embarassed
