It just works. Simple user interface. You can just "set it and forget it". Maybe the best online tool I have ever encountered.

JBidWatcher stopped working and is out of business.

Gixen was the next best alternative.

I took their annual subscription which is pretty cheap
And ensures that two servers are working to place my
Bid.

It works.

Gixen's service is so easy to use and so comprehensive that I've never been able to find a similar service that comes close... at any price. Yet, Gixen's fee puts it in range of just about any eBAY shopper... even the most casual user. For those who take the time to investigate the comparative benefits, Gixen is guaranteed to come out the clear winner.

It works great and is continually improving and adapting to changes in Ebay.

I can't remember exactly, but at the time I was researching, read lots of reviews on the different options and went with the one that was most recommended. Usually I use which?', Martin Lewis' forums etc to research companies, avoiding those who declare kickbacks from the companies they review.

I discovered Gixen years ago when another service I was using raised their rates significantly. It was just luck that led me to Gixen but it's been nothing but a positive experience. I've never had any problems with Gixen and there is an option of using their free platform or their very reasonably priced service with a low annual fee. Highly recommend Gixen.

It's free and works on donations. I paid for it one year as I used it a lot.

Originally, I tried Gixen due to the price of his service. (very economical for what you get). My reasoning NOW is still PRICE but it also includes Reliability... I am not going anywhere elae...

Tried several services and had bid failures. With Gixen mirror service no failed bids have happened.

I chose Gixen primarily because they provide service on both primary and backup servers. A consideration was the free service offered, but after multiple successes I invested in a VERY low cost 2-year subscription that is much cheaper than other services. Can't beat $4 per year with 100% success on every snipe.

I used another sniper service for a few years, before I started buying regularly. I switched to Gixen at the time, because they had unlimited snipes. Having used them for several years now, when they went to a paid membership for frequent snipers, it was priced well and provided better service - have been quite happy with it

Problems with BidNip sniping service I was using. When searching for a different service Gixen stood out for cost and positive online reviews.

It is cheap (or even completely free), it is reliable, and the customer service is excellent.

Price is so reasonable and it always works. Even if a person is only a very casual, online bidder, it is worth it to subscribe to Gixen.

I looked at several eBay sniping services and tried out a couple. Gixen had the features I was looking for, so I tried the free version. It performed so well and was so safe that I subscribed to the inexpensive mirror service, which has also performed flawlessly. As a result, I have been a happy and loyal user for many years now.

You know, I don't honestly remember exactly why. I guess their service just appeared to be easy and effective, and time has proven that to be the case.

It's the only one to reach me when I needed such a service. I'm not really aware of their competition, if they even have any of significance.

I choose Gixen because of Price and reviews, and I've upgraded my subscription because it works well.

It had the best reviews - and it's been working wonderfully for me!

The price (I started with a free plan for almost a year and upgraded paid afterwards) and simplicity of usage.

It's server-side. I. e. I don't have to keep my phone or my laptop on to make it snipe. I also don't have to install any client software to use it. All that it takes is a web browser.

My previous sniper had problems and I changed to Gixen which has been simple to use, effective and trouble free.

It's simple and do it's job and you can use it for free

I tried similar sites but Gixen was the most simple and cost effective (free at the basic level) I subscribe to the mirror service (£6 per year I think?) which hopefully contributes to the site survival. Very reliable the times I have used it.

The sniper I was using was acquired, and quality dropped like a rock so looked around, tried Gixen and was hooked by the easy interface and quality of sniping.

Best auction sniper I've used, and I've used many. With others I've missed snipes but with Gixen I've never missed one. The redundant second server makes Gixen ultra reliable and the pricing is incredibly inexpensive.

I chose Gixen over others because they were cheaper at first, but then also realized that they were more efficient and good people. So I decided to also pay for their mirror site and that saved me a few times too!

Reliability & reasonable cost, I have been a customer for years.

Gixen is cheap and from day one I've never had a problem. I've won every bid on ebay using Gixen so long as I was highest bidder, nearly a thousand items bought successfully so far.

Its free, and the paid for mirror services makes sure that the bids are always placed. Cost is $US6 per year, no other charges.

Years ago there weren't many legitimate eBay snipe websites, I found Gixen and decided to use them. A decade later I'm still using them frequently.

Reputation and at first free but I opted to add Gixen Mirror to keep this awesome site funded. Thanks, Glenn Hall Mendota IL

Ease of use and initially the free mode. It provides a lot of ways to import auctions, even from an csv file.

Much easier to use and has direct interface with Ebay, where I do most of my bidding.
