Hello,

I just re-authorized with Ebay (don't know if this is relevant) and went in and scheduled a bit. The bid appeared to be registered but the counter at the top still said Scheduled Bids (0)!

So I refreshed the page and it tried to schedule the same bid again and errored (like it should). Then the scheduled bid counter showed Scheduled Bids (1) like it should.

I am assuming that this is a bug but it doesn't inspire confidence! I just hope that this bid executes.

Gixen needs about 2 minutes to record your scheduled bid in its system. So, this is not unusual.

Note that the FAQ warns that you should not try to edit your bid less than two minutes before the auction ends for this reason.

This is very long standing, people notice and post about it once every few years, I think this is the last time it was discussed.

It does not impinge on the effectiveness of the actual sniping it's purely a display error.
