Item 274300661348

After auction closed, the status message was "Too Many Requests"

I had a higher bid than the award by about $40, however, it appears my bid was not placed.

No worries. Just have not seen the above status message before.

Thanks in advance!

Same issue. My snipe was about $10 higher than what the ending bid was, and appears the snipe was never placed. Ebay item # 293501923394

Same error for me. My bid was $14 more than the winning bid ended up being too. Super bummed because this item doesn't show up in the US often. Funny thing was Gixen placed a bid for me on a different item only 2 minutes prior (though I didn't win that either because someone outbid me, which I'm fine with).

My bids on eBay were also not placed, due to "Too many requests". What does that mean?

EBay item #'s 164112548722 and 392716471592

Same here on items I wanted to bid on. On one item my top bid was $15 more than the $41 it sold for. On the other item my top bid was almost double it selling price. I really needed both of these items and foolishly relied on Gixen to take care of it for me..........

I should have added in my post directly above that I am a paid Gixen member. So, my bid was supposed to be by both the Gixen and Mirror Servers......I thought from what I read and was told "with both, its foolproof".....

There was an issue with Gixen's communication with eBay's backend.

Apparently some limit was hit, a limit I was not fully aware of, so this is really my fault, not eBay's.

After some urgent communication with eBay, they were able to raise this limit, which resolved the issue.

I am sending an email to all affected users as I type this. In total, bids of 454 users were affected by this.

My sincere apology for the issue.

I've just had exactly the same problem this evening (17/3/20) on item number 233521939632 .
Maybe things need looking at again.
I've been a Gixen subscriber for years (lost count), use it loads and generally very happy Smile

That is odd, because on this thread, which I just responded to, you said that that auction received 'EBAY ERROR: PURCHASE LIMIT EXCEEDED' as a status.

So, was it that or did it get a 'TOO MANY REQUESTS', status message as this post here implies ?

OK,

If you manage to get Ebay to give you more details please feed back on the other thread, since it might help others to resolve it with Ebay if they know more details.

duke6364gixen, this is a different issue - this happens when sellers are away. eBay is aware of the issue, but they haven't fixed it yet.
