  1. I was one of those that tried Bonanza way back when and the problem that I had was a complete and total lack of buyers. I had good items for sale and very good prices but there was just not enough traffic to justify continuing with the service so I just stopped listing on it. I’m not even sure if I still have my account open on that site but unless something has changed drastically traffic wise, it was just not worth the time to post the listings and make sure daily that if anything actually sold that I got it our quickly. I may check it out and see if something has changed if it is not a lot of extra work trying to list on their site. With Ebay I still use Turbo Lister which makes it very easy to keep track of my listings and allows me to cancel and relist items as i see fit in just a few minutes each month.I do use some other sites also but do not have as large of am inventory for those sites at this time.

  2. They could make Stripe available to all sellers, like they said they would years ago, and drop the ridiculous requirement to offer PayPal in order to offer Stripe. Of course, they’re just as tone deaf as eBay so they won’t.

      1. There is eBid and Webstore that do auctions and buy it now format.

        If theses sites would start gaining recognition, the auction would be good to work with.

  3. I tried their eBay sync, but no buyers. Item condition is not handled properly in the Stamps category because the eBay condition description requires setting the condition of unused stamps as “used”. Since eBay doesn’t display Item Condition, the hack is harmless. Unfortunately, Bonanza does, leaving potential buyers confused.

  4. I tried B. many times and every time I was disappointed. Or actually was not..
    It is a useless site, although I had a few sales there.
    The whole look of the site is very very out of reality, stuck in 1999.
    Traffic is non-existent, at least for me.
    My wife had a shop for handmade gemstone jewelry, also a few times, useless as well.
    Hopefully the new VP knows what to do.

  5. I sold on Bonanza for over 10 years when it was a good site. Then they started having all kinds of problems with the site. Kept contacting support who knew nothing and they kept saying it was at my end. I had two computer experts check out my system, talked to my ISP server and had Norton check out my computer twice and they all said it was at Bonanza’s end. I got mad at support at Bonanza so they blocked me from doing many things like answering my messages there and commenting in the chat room. The problem I was having was I couldn’t search on Bonanza but I could any place else on the internet or any other site. Then it got so it was adding the wrong shipping charges to my orders and they couldn’t even fix that. So I took my over 300 listening and left. When I started removing my listings I discovered that many of them had NEVER been put on Goggle shopping and yet I paid the 9% fee to get them listed. I moved to eCrater listed these items and many of them have sold as they have put them on Goggle shopping and I only pay about 3%. Plus the supporter at eCrater is VERY helpful and nice. I would never go back to Bonanza…..

  6. Greg Braukus, give all sellers unlimited free listings with NO RELISTING FEES with no store subscription commitment and great final value fees and we will move 100 grand worth of inventory to Bonanza, so will millions of other eBay sellers.

    There is your business plan in a nutshell.
