Hi Mario,

Is there any chance that in the "Bid" and "Current" columns on the snipe list in Gixen, you could display the currency symbol alongside each item?

So instead of having simply arbitrary numeric value of say "106" we can see that it's in Dollars or Pounds.

I create snipes on the UK and US sites at the same time and it's really confusing looking up & down my snipe list and panicking that I've put in a wildly high bid, when in fact the bid is in USD !

If it's not possible to show a currency symbol them perhaps a column showing a flag icon, to denote which eBay site the item is on? That would be a clue.

All the best,

Steve

I'll see what I can do Steve. It became more complicated as of recent, as ebay is gradually introducing a new interface, plus now I have to support multiple target sites. So supporting all these different types of item pages is a lot of work.

i like the idea, maybe it is easier just to mention the site domain suffix it is listed on instead ??? ie .co.uk

I dont thinl that would be easier to ascertain as it involves working out the location of the seller.

In any case it is quite possible to list items in any currency on any site, so for instance its quite common for items listed on .co.uk to be in US dollars and not in Pounds sterling. Sellers often do that when they are targetting the American market even though they are located in the UK.
