From the FAQ:
Quote:
Can I schedule group bids where the remaining bids are canceled once an item in the group is won, like eBay's Bid Assistant?

Yes, simply choose a group number from the [Bid Group:] drop-down box. All items with the same group number will be grouped together and remaining bids canceled once an item in the group is won. Do not use Bid Assistant together with Gixen groups, these two are not compatible and using them both will cause your snipes to fail.

Do you support group bids?

Yes. Group bids can be used for items that do not have end times within 2 minutes of each other. Be careful not to group items too close to each other by end time, or you might win all of them. Update (Feb 26th, 2007): minimum of 17 seconds between group bids should be enough now. However, this is still in testing, use at your own risk.

To be on the safe side, you should have at least minute between group bids... Gixen tries to cancel "snipes in flight" when difference is less, but this does not always succeed.

No problem, good luck with them... they are a bit close together, in time, as both John and Mario pointed out... still if they are not too expensive I guess you dont need to worry.
