I'm new to Gixen and made a few snipes for low cost items to get used to workings.

I wanted to use for an item that is hard to come by and of great value to me so set the snipe up but also was doing a manual snipe at the same time.

I executed my snipe at around 3 seconds and set the value ¬GBP 5 lower than the snipe set in Gixen.

My manual bid was for 450 and Gixen set at 455.

For some reason the Gixen bid did not execute, the error "You are not eligible to bid on this item."

I'm glad I was doing a manual backup just in case but wondered why this did not work.

Previously it had sniped 2 x items fine but were low cost (less than ¬GBP 5).

All items were UK sellers and only shipped to UK.

Was this potentially the value and the fact I checked my settings after and am defaulted to Country=United States.

I've changed that now to UK.

Should I also change the main/mirror eBay target sites to UK if using UK eBay?

The setting notes: "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"

Could this of caused the fail snipe from Gixen, being sent to US eBay rather than UK ?

Thanks,

To be honest, the target setting is unlikely to be the cause of this failure message.

However, if you do live in the UK and your shipping address is thus also in the UK, I'd recommend you do set your target sites to also be the UK.

Was the final price of the auction anywhere near the 450 that you bid ?

What was the auction number ?

Thanks Cupid -I'll change my target servers to UK.

No the final auction price was ¬GBP 276

I set the snipe bid on Gixen and mirror for ¬GBP 455.00

Due to the rarity of the item I also manually bid ¬GBP 450.00 at around the 3/2 second mark.

Item ID: 254871297109



Just to test the service before I committed to this item I used it to buy a few Bluray's, these are those items:

133666908953
274684920140

I've tried to compare and see no differences - all auctions look to only ship to the UK and we're fired to the USA servers. At the time my country was set to USA too - I've since changed that and the fire servers to UK.

Just wanted to try and get some confirmation if I did something wrong, if my settings were incorrect and get some confidence back for using gixen on future purchases.

It worked fine on the other items.

Only other things to mention, I was a long time eBay user but my account expired after 6.5 years of non use!

So it is a fairly new account, the bluray items were cheap (under ¬GBP 5) and I had no feedback then. But when this snipe went in for the higher price item I had a couple of positive feedback.

Wasn't sure if value and how young my account was - but it still wouldn't make sense I was able to place manually on the same account.

Thanks for your help!

Ebay does tend to impose limits on new accounts, especially when they don't have verification of identity and/or a payment method saved, like a credit card.

However, as you say that wouldn't explain how you were able to place a manual bid of a very similar amount.

From your account I can't see that you did anything that would be the cause of the result you experienced.

Moin,

Can you try to bid on one listing manually (e.g. low bid) and then schedule a snipe on that listing? If the first is successful, and second isn't that would indicate a problem.

Restriction can be something else, not just location.

Here can the seller see the not allowed biddings normally. I asked him and wait for answer.
