First time posting, I apologize if this was already asked (tried searching but couldn't find anything)...
There are two items on eBay, I want to bid on the second ONLY if I win the first one (which ends about 15 minutes before the second). Even better would be if I could automate the bidding so that the bid is a certain amount on the second item if the first item is won, and a different amount if the first item is lost.

This is known as Contingency Bidding here on Gixen. To use it you first have to enable Contingency Groups on the Settings page that you get after you push the Settings button near the top of the snipes page. Then you get Contingency Groups included on the drop down menu for you to select when you add or modify snipes.
Unfortunately, this does not meet all your needs as you are restricted to bidding just one set amount on any particular auction via Gixen. _________________ Mark
