I love not having to "be there" to snipe auctions. Even with the eBay app on my smartphone I would miss auctions, forget to watch the end of an auction even though I got the 15 minute warning (yea...I'm a little ADD), and none of the frustration of watching items get bid up and up where it becomes a game for the guy on the other side who just wants to win at all costs.

I considered myself a pretty "intelligent" bidder understanding the psychology of the bidders on the other side but with Gixen I am winning more auctions at lower dollar amounts.

One suggestion for those who think 3 seconds or even 6 second offsets are the way to go...I actually think 8 second offsets are the best because you get in before others but don't leave enough time to manually bid. Some of the complaints I have heard are probably because they bid the same amount (or within the increment) but at a later time, therefore an earlier bid might have won the auction. just works and works good and the mirror service is worth 10X the price of admission.

I totally agree, as someone who loves ebay but works on call (often attending work emergencies at a moment's notice), and who purchases many items from overseas (different time zone), I was often frustrated at missing out on items. I would often set my alarm for 3 or 4 am just so that I could win the item in Europe or US (desperate, I know!)... My only issue is that because Gixen works so well, I am now flat broke! And, no I was not paid to say this, I just genuinely think it is a fantastic program

I TOTALLY agree... I was going to post that as a follow up last week.

It works so well I am running out of money. I buy most of my inventory for my side business on eBay and I have been winning more auctions at lower prices and making more money. But, you are right...I am winning too many auctions!

Another problem is that I am winning auctions at such stupid low prices that some people are refusing to send the merchandise, cancelling transactions, or just plain ignoring my messages. Thank God for buyer protection.
