Hi,

I was just wondering, does Gixen automatically bid your highest price in the auction? Or does it bid only as high as it needs to?

Joel, Gixen submits your highest bid to ebay, and then ebay proxy bidding takes over.

P.S. By the way, this same question has been answered at least five times in the forum already, and also in the FAQ.

Thanks, Mario. Sorry to be redundant, but I've looked in the FAQ and was not about to wade through 2000 forum posts. It seems to me that it could be more clearly explained in the FAQ, since there are likely thousands who, like me, did not find t there.

Perhaps you could suggest a better form of wording for the FAQ that would be more undrstandable for new users?... We here all know how it works and so perhaps from our position of familiarity we are not the best to explain it?

This is what it says on this subject at the moment:

If I enter my maximum bid in Gixen, will I have to pay that amount if I win?

Not necessarily (except for Dutch auctions). All Gixen does is enter your bid on eBay just before the auction closes, and then eBay's proxy bidding system takes over. The winning bid amount will be the second-highest bid plus up to one increment, which could be much less than your maximum bid. Thus, you should always enter your maximum bid in Gixen, just as you would if you entered it manually directly on eBay. An important exception are Dutch (multiple-item) auctions, in which you pay what you enter (provided you win).

You both may be right... I probably lost a sense of how it looks like to brand new users. I'll see that I add more questions to the FAQ.
