Now you should be able to group auctions that are at least 10 seconds apart from each other (as opposed to 2-5 minutes that was case up until now). This is still in testing, so, until further notice, use at your own risk.

This interval is increased to at least 17 seconds now. This is a consequence of added check for "outsnipes".

So, for someone who isnt used to free sniping ^^ Grouping several bids under the heading 1 for example, means that if you win the item, all the other items following will be cancelled ? But if you dont win it will keep tendering bids on the remaining items until you win one ? Rolling Eyes

That is great. So I will not end up with 2 items, if the auctions are 40 seconds apart. Smile

This has changed since this post, for number of reasons. I recommend at least one minute between auctions, and prefer two minutes.

No problem Mark, I forget too. As far as I can remember, distinguishing "outsniped" from "won" is one reason why this time had to be extended - now Gixen waits up to 15 seconds after auction end to make sure it was really won.

I'm trying to figure this out on here. I want a purse and a matching wallet, two separate auctions five minutes apart. I do not want the purse if I do not win the wallet. How do I set that up? Confused

The feature you are looking for is known as a Contingency Group here on Gixen, you have to enable that feature on the Settings page before they become available for setting snipes.

With a Contingency Group the first item that is lost cancels the rest of the snipes in that Contingency Group.

Keep in mind that if subsequent bids in the group fail, you cannot "undo" the ones already won.
