I'm new here, so first of all thank you for running this service !
Now -- I read a few older posts about this, but didn't fully understand what's going on:
What will Gixen use for the bid? The value I write in the "Your bid" field or a value that's just slightly higher than the item's last bid?
Gixen will submit "your bid" to ebay the same way you would, just at the last moment (seconds before auction ends). Then ebay takes over and uses proxy bidding to increase your bid only as much as necessary to win the auction.
So, the bid you enter at Gixen is your maximum bid, you may not have to pay as much to win the auction.
