Well, is all clear now ! in my current case i will leave it default because the item i'm bidding on is visible on aswell.

Thanks for the incredibly quick answer !

The "country" setting has no relevance. The only purpose of it is to format links on the Gixen scheduled snipes pages, so that they land on the desired ebay country site when you click on them.

The "target site" setting is more relevant - Gixen will in fact place bids on the specified country site. This used to matter only for insurance purposes - your insurance coverage is different depending on which country site you use to place your bid. Recently though, some items can't be viewed on eBay US, only on e.g. eBay Germany or eBay UK, so this setting became more relevant. By default, target site is set to eBay US, but "Auto" setting is on - which ensures that target site is switched for those items that can't be viewed on eBay US.

I would not change any of these settings unless you understand completely what I just explained above.

Thank you for the link but unfortunately it doesn't help me 100 %.Mario keeps telling us to set our country ebay but in my case my country doesn't have a ebay so i don't see the relevance.

The bottom line is : should i set the country according to the auction location or leave default ?
