In the following weeks, Gixen will start transitioning to using the newest eBay interface. From a user perspective, everything will look just the same, but reliability will be further strengthened by this.

While this is not urgent by any means, I kindly ask all users to prepare for this by granting Gixen additional authorization on eBay that will allow it to use the newest interface. Once you log in to Gixen, click on the "Settings" button, scroll down a bit, and you will see the following:

Secondary eBay authorization status: Inactive.
Link/Re-authorize Gixen on your eBay account (valid for 18 months)

Click on the "Link/Re-authorize" link and grant Gixen permission to bid on your behalf.

A sniping engine that uses the new interface is already active on the mirror server, so any mirror subscribers who grant new authorization to Gixen will immediately take advantage of it. The main server will likely be upgraded as soon as a few months from now.

It's actually a button to the left of the Logout button. The mouse does not change to a hand when you hover over it.

Just received Mario's message about the new interface. However, my Ebay settings don't match the information given by him. In my Account settings, I do not immediately see the words "Secondary eBay authorization status: Inactive".......what I do see, instead, under Account Preferences/Site Preferences/General Preferences and then in the section titled Third-Party Preferences....is a list of names including Ebay itself and Gixen Inc, with check-boxes alongside to revoke authorization.
It seems there is no additional authorisation to give. I am in the UK, using ebay.co.uk
I'm just assuming that I am looking in the correct place! Smile

You are looking at the eBay settings page, not Gixen settings page. Log in to Gixen, click on the "Settings" button and you will see it.

I successfully gave secondary authorization per Mario's email request.

While I was in there, I figured I might as well re-authorize the primary ebay token status above it.

After successfully re-authorizing both, I see these expiration date:

eBay authorization token status: Active.
Your eBay authorization for eBay account m***jo79 expires on Sun, Jun 6, 2021.

Secondary eBay authorization status: Active.
Your eBay authorization for eBay account m***jo79 expires on Sun, Jun 13, 2021.

Not a real big deal, but a head-scratcher as to why the expiration dates aren't identical.

Like an earlier poster, I get an error message when I click the button Link/Reauthorize the secondary eBay server. However, my status code is up to 500, over the previously reported 400.

{"error_id":"temporarily_unavailable","error_description":"The authorization server is currently unable to handle the request.","http_status_code":500}

PostPosted: Sat Dec 14, 2019 9:05 am    Post subject: 4th time successful Reply with quote

On my fourth try, I was successful in my Link/Re-authorize attempt for the Secondary eBay authorization. It is possible that this success happened, because between the third and fourth tries, I re-authorized my primary eBay authorization.

Like an earlier poster, I see/saw a variety of dates. In the confirmation phase of the reauthorization for both primary and secondary, I was told that the authorization was valid through May 27, 2021. However, after going back into the Gixen Settings page, I see that the primary is authorized through June 6, 2021, and the secondary is authorized through June 13, 2021.

On another note, I couldn't find a way to change the Captcha. In fact, I have had the same one on every message attempt this morning. It took me a few tries to get it right, since fractured, low-res eight and nine, and zero and 'o' look identical.

I too tried repeatedly to activate the secondary but it continued to display as "Inactive" until I re-activated the primary, then activated the secondary. It them immediately showed as Activated.

However...now it is no longer possible to add ANY item!

Hi - I'm getting a very strange response from eBay to using your link - currently logged into ebay anyway, it takes me through a verification process that I have never seen before and keeps telling me my login details don't match. I'm stuck.

I activated the second authorisation too... but I was able to add his item to my snipe list via the web interface... so this issue appears to be dependent on some, unknown as yet, aspect of certain Gixen accounts, and not universal.

Mario may therefore require more details to help him home in on exactly where the issue lies with the implementation.

OK...your comment made me think a bit further.
I unlinked both Ebay token and secondary authorisation and then relinked the token ONLY. Adding items is then possible.
Next step to verify, i activated the second authorisation and tried adding an item...NOT WORKING. I get the same errors like before.

Problem is with the secondary authorisation...

One more thing...

eBay authorization token status: Active.
Your eBay authorization for eBay account ******** expires on Mon, Jun 7, 2021.
Re-authorize Gixen on your eBay account (valid for 18 months)
Unlink eBay account

Secondary eBay authorization status: Active.
Your eBay authorization for eBay account ******** expires on Mon, Jun 14, 2021.
Link/Re-authorize Gixen on your eBay account (valid for 18 months)
Unlink eBay account

For now i leave the secondary authorization inactive

I disabled the new interface until I see what is happening. All mirror bids are back to being sent using the primary interface.

wimmer, are you the user who emailed me as well? If so, this is resolved now.

In general, one should just repeat the re-auth process.

Does the new Gixen eBay interface permit bidding (sniping) on items for users who are over a certain age, such as in the Magazine Back Issues topic of that section? Bidding in this section was not possible with a previous build of Gixen. Thank you.

Hi,

Could it please be stated very clearly somewhere on the website exactly which information is shared to Gixen via the eBay API?

They don't seem to care much about privacy, since one of the links on the permission page leaks someone's full legal name among other things.

The commerce.identity.readonly API returns quote a lot of data.

Please be transparent about this.
