Hello,

On August 10 to 21:30, I placed a bid on item 180272071886, max 5.93 for an item that finished August 10 to 21:52, Gixen did not notify me of any error.

At the auction end, I see : bid in progress 5.50 - Bid lower to the asking price ... 5.50 ... I have put 5.93 !

However, for some reason unknown to me, my bid was not placed. Could you explain why?

Thanks

Best regards

Terry

5.93 was too low.

When current bid is 5.50, then the next bid should be 5.50 + increment (0.50 in this case) = 6.00.

6.00 is higher than your snipe 5.93 so you did not win.

Bid increment depends on the current bid.

Here is a list of increments:

Hi,

Thank you very much for your answer ... I thought about it by sending the mail, I could not remove it, usually I anticipate wider still to the step of 0.50 ... at 22:00, I had no clear idea !

Sorry

Best regards

Terry
