Ha well of course this is my first time using Gixen. So I set up a snipe for item number 220666830509. So I bid $42 (australian). Which actually happened to be the winning price, though not by me. And I put the offset at 3 seconds. Then at that 3 second point, the price was 41 dollars. But my bid never showed up. I'm not sure exactly why, unless 3 seconds is not enough? Or was it something else?
I just gotta know for next time. Thankss. =]

The price was already 42.00 51 seconds before auction end, and you have to meet minimum bid increment requirement... Hence the minimum required bid at the auction end time was 53.00.

If you look at the bid history you can see that the price was already $42 at the time Gixen would have been trying to submit your bid.

eBay wil only accept bids that are at least one increment above the current auction price, hence you bid could not be placed.

Ohkay, I see. The timing doesn't really matter. Just the highest bid overall. Thanks.
