Gixen: Free Auction Sniper For Ebay

On eBay, when folks want to win an item at the auction, they usually place their bid in advance and set it to the maximum amount they are willing to pay. However, as eBay experts point out early bids increase the item’s value to other participating bidders and therefore drives up the final value of the item. Also, folks who usually bid at the very end of the auction know that continuously refreshing the auction page is tiresome, unreliable and often gets the person to irrationally overbid the item’s worth.

Gixen is a free auction sniper for eBay, which automates the whole bidding process and can automatically place bids on your behalf in the last minute. You simply sign in with your eBay login, enter your maximum bid and quantity and click on the “Add” button.

Gixen places your bid 10 seconds before the auction ends, which in turn gets you a lower final bid price. You can schedule up to 10 multiple simultaneous last-minute auctions, even with your computer off.

Isn’t it a bit risky to trust gixen with your Ebay pw?

I mean, I can understand it requires to log in for you… But how the hell do you know they are trustworthy or even have a high enough level of security not to get their (and therefore your) data stolen.

I think you should be very careful when recommending such a site, I bet most readers are not techies and might not understand the whole risks of giving up there login credentials to just any site…

Using such sniper tools apparantly is a violation of the eBay User Agreement.

From Gixen FAQ:

Is it safe to just give away my eBay credentials?

Yes. Gixen.com is using SSL both to transmit your password from your browser, and to authenticate it with eBay. Furthermore, your eBay password is not kept for long after auction ends – after your bids are submitted to eBay, your password is deleted within 48 hours to minimize the risk of it being compromised in the future. This also means that you have only 2 days after auction ends to view status of your bid on gixen.com. If you choose to do so, you can delete your bids even before that.
