Gixen has worked well for me. I was skeptical about giving my ebay name and password (I'm so paranoid that I'm using a different name here!), that I changed my ebay password just before, and again after the first time I used this Gixen. When all went well, I began to use the service for all my bidding on ebay. I haven't had any difficulties with any bids. I do make note of my Gixen offered bids in the notes section of each auction I am watching so that I if there are multiple items on which I'm bidding, I can see from within ebay how much I am going to bid on each respective auction.
