Sorry i am not quite understanding how the group bidding option works. So you can add auctions all for the same item, but they can't be more than 2 minutes within each other or gixen will bid for all of them? right now I am looking at getting a certain item, and the seller has listed like 10 auctions all for the same item all within a few seconds of each other and I would like to win one of these auctions. How should I go about doing this?

You can't use group bidding for these, if they are all within few seconds of each other. There simply isn't enough time to verify you won the item and cancel remaining snipes.

You have to choose and bid on only one of them.

ok thanks. I can understand how that would be impossible given the time needed to bid on one, get the info back from ebays servers and run it through yours...more than about a couple of seconds...

I advise people not to use group bids if they are within 2 minutes of each other. With Gixen, the real minimum is around 17 seconds or so.
