I know this is not a Gixen problem but an eBay problem ... But I just missed an item again, having bid more than three times the amount of the winning bid, and the explanation was again as follows:

"Item cannot be purchased. Seller does not provide shipping to the country or region of your primary shipping address."

This just doesn't make sense to me. I would not bid if I would not be able to provide a perfectly working delivery address in a country where this item can be shipped to. I do change delivery addresses before bidding if I see that an important item can only be delivered to specific countries. But sometimes I have several bids running on the same day, with different delivery requirements (which I can all meet without problems). eBay - or Gixen - should allow to select a specific delivery address at the moment of bidding for a specific item.

Isn't it obious that I would wish the surfboard to go to my beach house in California while the skis need to go to my chalet in the Swiss Alps Wink ?

I recommend that you set up separate Ebay accounts to bid with different shipping addresses, that way you don't have to change shipping addresses, you just choose the right account, and you can bid on items from different regions during the same time period.

Of course that does also imply that you need to set up multiple Gixen accounts...
