I usually bid on around 10 items to insure that I win one item. I group them together, so I only get one winning bid. Life is good, and it works very nicely. Thanks Mario!

But GENERATING which items to bid on in the first place takes so LONG! Is there anyway to automate getting a list of items - such as pink pencils- into a list of maybe 10 items, and say - I want to win one pink pencil - I want to spend up to $22.50 taxed and shipped, and automatically reduce my bid price by the shipping (and tax) price so that I spend up to $22.50 on an all-in basis, and enter the bids into Gixen directly for me to save me all the bidding entry time? Then I can delete any item that I might choose to disqualify that I decide I don't really want in Gixen.

I guess I am looking to make it way quicker and easier to get my initial bids into Gixen much more quickly, especially for high-volume, low-price bids.

I use Windows 10 and/or iOS.

You're not one for just asking for the easy stuff, are you ? Shocked Laughing

To be honest, I don't think the amount of use this would get could justify the amount of work involved. It would also mean replicating some features that are available on the Ebay site itself, like searching and grouping items together into lists.

I thought that the things were going this way with the eBay's product-based shopping experience (PBSE), and that this would ultimately result in "product sniping" (e.g. you specify the item, and when it shows up on eBay, Gixen buys it automatically using "buy-it-now"), but eBay's catalog is still not in good-enough shape for this - e.g. accessory has the same product id as the main item.
