The $6 per year is for the optional "mirror service". For the OP, here is a breakdown of Gixen. (I just copied from their site.)



Gixen features, all absolutely free:
No download required!
Gixen automatically places your bids on eBay at the last moment.
Entirely automatic - your computer doesn't have to be on.
Group bidding: first successful snipe cancels all the others.
Unlimited number of snipes.
Free browser plugins for IE, Firefox and Chrome.
Gixen Desktop Manager - schedule and monitor your snipes from your Windows desktop.
Gixen is provided to you completely free, no catch.
Gixen is completely secure.
Gixen is 99.5% reliable.
Gixen Mirror Features:

All the Gixen main service features, plus:
Gixen Mirror is a multi-server, fault-tolerant sniping service, unmatched by any other sniping service or sniping software. Your snipes are sent twice, from two different hosting locations.
No ads in the logged-in area.
Contingency group bidding - first failed bid cancels all the others in a group.
New! Multi-win group bidding - define how many items you want to win in a group.
Wider choice of snipe time choices (3,6,8,10,12 and 15 seconds).
Auction end times refreshed hourly, as opposed to daily.
Other small perks provided to Mirror users only, such as CSV export / import and Gixen API.
100% reliable (*). No other sniping service provides this.
Cost of Gixen Mirror is a bargain at $6 a year.

RE: The Sniper Programs?
I have used Gixen for a couple months now and I will never go back. I have been winning a lot more stuff and the best part is I never have to be home to bid on anything.

RE: The Sniper Programs?
my only problem with gixen isnt really a problem. once i set up like 3 bids on auctions that were ending at funny times. I put really low bids on all 3, expecting to win maybe 1, I ended up winning all of them, and had to pony up. Oh well, i got good deals on all 3 of them.

Yeah, thanks. I read it on their site. Like I said above, I've decided against it. It doesn't matter anymore, the item has gone over my max bid. Thanks though. Thank You to everyone who responded!!

RE: The Sniper Programs?
nolan. out of curiosity, what info did they ask for that was too much for you? I am jw because the only info I had to give them at any time was ebay id and password, which I believe you have to do w/ all sniping programs. Someone correct me if I am wrong here.

That was it. The eBay ID & Password. I didn't trust them to keep it Secure. Like I said, the bidding went over my max anyway.

I've never cheated either; I was merely looking into cheating.

RE: The Sniper Programs?
Help me understand something about sniping...If I bid on an item that is 6 days out from ending, and I dont want to spend more than $20 on it, and I use that as my max bid, how does having a sniper program save you money or win you more auctions?
