|What you have described is exactly correct. Simply follow through with the instructions and you will be up and running.
1. Create a new Gixen username and password that are different from your eBay username and password.
2. When you are directed to eBay, log in with your eBay username and password and follow the instructions to authorize Gixen. (Alternatively, once you've created your new Gixen account, you can also authorize Gixen on your eBay account via the Settings page available by clicking the Settings button at the top of your Gixen account page.)
3. Enter your snipe bids as you did before.
This is a much more reliable system than previously. Gixen no longer has to use your eBay credentials to log in to eBay to place your snipe bid because eBay has provided Gixen with the API to place your bids for you without having to log in to your eBay account. Try it. You'll like it.
If you have any specific problems with the steps required to update your Gixen credentials and authorize Gixen on your eBay account, post again.
If you don't know where you are going, you will wind up somewhere else.
