What happened! I bid $60+ on an item and the next highest bidder was $30. Why wasn't my bid just a dollar more? Why do I have to pay $30 extra? The program is not supposed to work that way! I later found this item was not worth even $35. Nevertheless, I'm out $30.

Could you give us the auction number?

It sounds like there may have been a reserve, and your bid met the reserve. We'd have to see the auction to know for sure. Whatever happened, it had nothing to do with Gixen: the same thing would have happened had you placed the bid manually.

Perhaps you've learned this, but your experience highlights the importance of doing your research before bidding. If you bid too much for an item, you run the risk of paying too much for the item.
