From what I can see it isn't going to be worthwhile to develop a whole new process for that site, it doesn't have enough traffic at the moment.

Revisiting this subject. I dunno - the site sure isn't getting any smaller. It will never be an eBay but at the same time my 'rough addition' says there are over 100,000 items up for auction right now. That's not exactly small either.

And... I keep losing to last second snipes on ShopGoodwill. Sad So someone is doing it. I think EZSnipe is the only competition here - and it's never got out of beta for ShopGoodwill.

Would really like to see it happen at Gixen.

I suggest not messing with I'm not so sure you can make the app fast enough to beat out the shill bidding on that site.

I do PC repair and reselling in my spare time to make extra money. There are a LOT of great deals on Shopgoodwill when it comes to electronics. I just spent an hour looking for a good sniper that would work with Shopgoodwill. Unfortunately all of them were either expensive or looked like they were untrustworthy. And I always get outbid in the last few minutes, unless I'm able to be at home and just staring at my monitor...

I instantly subscribed to your mirror service, because your service looks good and I don't mind supporting you. But, if you added in support for Shopgoodwill, even if it wasn't anywhere close to perfect, I'd be forever grateful. Maybe you could charge those of us that want it a little more for the effort? I wouldn't mind paying a little more.

I hope you reconsider. This addition would make Gixen perfect in my book. Thanks!

You would be at the head of the class if you added Shopgoodwill to your sniping venues---it appears that whomever set up this site has outsmarted the sniping companies out there---they are in BETA testing and do not work!

This site appears to have a lot of traffic and it is growing!

I would definitely like shopgoodwill to be added. Right now, goodwill has an enormous listing. I think the traffic now warrants some development. It's comparable to smaller auction sites like gunbroker.

Sorry for the bump but I wanted to say I'd love support for goodwill as well. Its a pain knowing there are many items that get sniped at the last minute so I have to sit and wait before I can bit. At the very least it'd be nice to be able to schedule bids. The site has serious latency issues though so I don't know how reliable this would be.

I have no plans to support shopgoodwill at this point. Simple research shows that they are nowhere close to 1% of ebay's traffic, and there is no API. Just the thought of dealing with web scraping again makes me very uncomfortable. Unfortunately the reality is that it takes a lot of customers to justify such an undertaking. We'll see how it goes, if it keeps growing maybe one day.

I think I have changed my mind about this, bcuz ShopGoodwill doesn't seem to know what it wants to be when it grows up.

What I mean is: they do a lot of auctions on their own site of course - but some Goodwill stores now sell and auction a lot on eBay as well. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point Goodwill completely changed over to having their individual locations operate only on eBay.

As it is, all ShopGoodwill is is just a main web site for individual Goodwill's to sell stuff. In other words it's duplicating the functionality of eBay, not adding anything new or better, and probably costing them a pile to operate their own auction site. Only Goodwill would know which one is the least costly option.

We'll see...

After reading the response from Mario, I hesitated to post a reply. Then I thought that if I posted my request for the addition of Shopgoodwill to the GIXEN sniping, then it would show another person and the rolls would grow. Then, maybe . . . . .

Thank you,

I'd love to see it work for shopgoodwill. Just got outbid 2 minutes before the auction ended and something to help win an auction would be really nice.

If Shopgoodwill has nowhere near 1% of the traffic of eBay the amount of people wishing to use it would in theory only be less than 1% of the current numbers of Gixen users.

Given that it would require Mario to produce new software would everybody who wants a Gixen for Shopgoodwill be willing to pay an annual subscription ONE HUNDRED or TWO HUNDRED times the cost of eBay Gixen?

No, I didn’t think so, or would you expect Mario to do all the work and provide you a free service so you can freeload as some of you no doubt are already doing with Gixen?

+1 for SGW.

I would at least double or triple my yearly subscription fee for that additional functionality.

Anyways, thanks Mario, you are an absolute legend Smile
