Hi there,

Firstly I just want to say I started using Gixen for the past 3 months and it is absolutely brilliant, thank you for your hard work maintaining it.

I have noticed since using Gixen to bid on listings, that my transactions on eBay no longer earn Nectar points like they used to. This is a loyalty points scheme on eBay UK that you can redeem back as an eBay voucher. eg 500 points = GBP 5.

The explanation next to this is:

'You committed to buy this item on an eBay site outside of, so the purchase does not qualify for Nectar points.'

Will this be because in my Gixen settings, I haven't changed it from the default Gixen main target site and Gixen mirror site: United States? I am cautious about changing this setting since underneath it reads:

Search the forum to understand this setting. If you are not sure what these should be set to, leave it at its default values (United States), regardless of which country you reside in.

If you could please advise on whether I should change this setting to qualify my purchases for Nectar rewards I would appreciate it! If it is going to disrupt the functionality of my Gixen searches at all I won't since I'm very happy with how Gixen is currently working for me.

Thank you

Yes, you should change your target(s) to be the UK site.

I am also registered on the Nectar scheme and this works for me.

There isn't a downside for someone that lives in the UK and wants things sent to their home address.
