I did not win this auction although my max bid was much higher than the winning bid. I got that message in gixen "AUCTION RESTRICTED: REQUIREMENTS NOT MET". The auction number is 250157229379. Please explain as I do not really feel like using your services again... I am pretty disapointed Sad

Sellers can block bids in a number of ways, not having a Paypal account linked to your eBay id is a common one, having a low feedback score, or having non paying bidder strikes against you.

If it were me I would contact the seller (mixman_ling) via the 'Ask seller a question' link on the auction page and ask what restrictions they put on this auction explaining that you tried to bid but were not able to, and that you would like to avoid the problem happening in the future.

I think that this is very unlikely to be a problem with gixen, and that if you had manually tried to enter a bid on this auction it would also have failed/not have been possible.

If the seller tries to help but can't provide an explanation, please come back and let us know.

Good luck ... it is in your interests to find the cause as this is likely to happen again, whether you bid manually or with any sniping service or software.

I do have a verified Paypal account... this is the only way I pay for everything I buy. I have 25 positive feedback, zero negative or neutral... I do not see any reason why it did not work. I contacted the seller but did not get any feedback. Anyway, I can not take the risk this happens again so I won't use your services anymore...

When you say 'verified' do you mean that you have your bank account linked to it and your address details verified on the Paypal account?... If so thats not the same as having it registered against your eBay account, you have to do that on eBay.

Sorry to lose you, as I say I'm pretty sure your problem has nothing to do with gixen and when you find you have a problem bidding on eBay you'll then be able to find out where the problem lies, sort it out and then use sniping services without any concerns.

I should perhaps make it clear that you have been talking to another user just like yourself, I'm not the owner of the service, Mario is. Only Mario knows how it really works.

I'm sorry to hear that, but I assure you that you would get identical response had you bid manually. There is a reason you got this message, and while Gixen is not able to identify what it is (ebay doesn't display a reason), the outcome is identical as with the manual bidding.

OK here is a positive suggestion if this kind of occurence worries you, if the auction is well below what you are prepared to pay first enter a manual bid on eBay that is just one increment above the current price, that is the minimum you are allowed to bid at that stage, don't worry if that bid is immediately outbid by eBays proxy process... if the bid is placed successfully you then know that you are able to bid on the auction and you have only pushed the price up a small amount, unfortunately you have registered an interest in the auction, but there's a small price to pay for all reasurance...

If the bid is not successful you then have time to contact the seller and find out what restictions they have placed on the auction, whether you (or the seller) can do anything to allow your bid or whether you need to move on and find an alternative item to bid on.

Then you can set up a snipe for the true maximum that you are prepared to pay. Make sure you use the same eBay id for this, if you have more than one, this ensures that if you are by this stage the high bidder and no one else places a bid before the end of the auction you will not pay a penny more than your first bid!. In this way you are certain that you will not have this error after the auction finishes. I hope that is useful to someone.
