I have this message on my account home:
Quote:
Your ebay authorization has expired or expires in less than 10 days. Please renew it on the Gixen settings page or your snipes may fail. Your eBay authorization to Gixen has been revoked. Please renew it on the Gixen settings page or your snipes may fail.


I have this message on the settings page

Your eBay authorization for eBay account ****** expires on Sun, Dec 29, 2019.


I'm pretty sure that Dec 29 is not in the past and is a lot more than 10 days in the future. I can reset it anyway but the conflicting messages are confusing to say the least.

The message on the settings page is only updated when you renew the authorisation.

It now seems that there are other things (other than just the passage of 18 months time) that cause the authorization to get revoked by Ebay, things like changing your credentials seem to trigger it. This will be the reason for the mismatch; Ebay will have indicated that your authorisation has expired, when there was interaction between Gixen and Ebay about an existing or potential snipe that you have set up, so you do need to update it.

As you say, it costs nothing, so when this happens it's best just to update it as indicated on the snipes page.
