This is correct, the current price field is completely irrelevant for the sniping. It's there for the user convenience only.

Maintaining the current price of auctions is an expensive task for the server. After all, the price changes each time a bid is placed and maintaining the correct price would require constant monitoring and updating, which would take server resources away from Gixen's main task (placing bids). Thus, Gixen updates the current prices every couple of hours or so as a batch job. If you want the up-to-the-minute current price, it is best to watch the item on eBay directly.

As far as placing bids, Gixen does this very efficiently. Remember, all Gixen does is place the bid you tell it to and places it in the last few seconds of the auction. This has nothing to do with the current price of the auction.

Item 250549692076, current price is approximately US $242.10 however on Gixen it still states it as US $179.50.

This is my first time using this site. If the site cannot indicate the correct price, how can I be sure that it will bid the correct amount for me at the correct time? Is there a problem with the server?
