Hi! Love Gixen! I am totally hooked.

A couple of enhancement ideas would be to include a column for shipping costs next to current. So that you know the real cost of the item.

Also, it would be nice to be able to click the column header and select the sort order that way.

Keep up the good work!

Thank you... This is complicated though, especially when there are several options, and/or when shipping can be international - what rate should I display?

sellers standard rate/ the first shown?
Is that possible?
Could you have a list based on cheapest? As if you choose the UK website, you would have a list of Royal Mail options. Or if on the itnernatrional website you could have the cheapest to your destination?

Don't think it is that much of an importance, especially if you've used the script for firefox...

I think it would be better to avoid trying to expand Gixen's auction management features: Gixen's raison d'etre is to place bids and to place them efficiently. Well, OK, I'm not the one to be claiming I know Gixen's raison d'etre: Mario is the only one who can do that. However, I hold to my opinion that it would be better to create a Gixen API so that auction management could be handled by client software (e.g. JBidWatcher).

I guess it depends on whether you are using some ebay web/xml service or if you've written gixen to scrape info from the ebay web pages. If you've done the latter, you could just scrape the shipping price from the item's auction page while logged in with the user's credentials. That would not always be helpful, but often would. No biggie, just food for thought.
