May I enter a bid using GPB on Gixen.com instead of UDS?
I want to make certain that this will be a legitimate bid on
EBAY. & it will go through. EBay item # 132374299286

The amount that you specify is in the currency of the auction, so:

1> If the auction is listed in GBP that is the currency you are specifying your snipe amount in.

2> If the auction is not listed in GBP, and you want to know how much you need to bid in that currency to not spend more than you are willing to in GBP then you need to do a conversion, I recommend using xe.com to do that, but please bear in mind that if you pay using Paypal they will charge you and extra 3.5% to do the currency conversion for you.

The auction you gave as an example is listed in GBP, therefore 1 (above) applies.

I just use the Google Currency Converter to find out how much it is in my local notes.

I snipe on a couple of ebay sites Germany - Australia - England and USA without a problem - the only problem is remembering the other currency values in relation to my paypal USD $
