Thank youI think it’s a great idea. Just my 2 cents I know I don’t post a lot but I’m always on here. Maybe have a “starting” price for an item. Then anything above and beyond that amount , a percentage should go back to the site because you are using the platform to make more on an item that you would have sold for for less.
It had crossed my mind too.. my opinion would be if a buyer backs out … He"s done forever! We would be relying on our honest good members to participate and dont have time for people to pull crap. That could be an issue, a very large issue. And I would think the seller has the option of 1) Accepting the next lowest bid or 2) Run it fresh , start over. Auction the item again. Guy who backed out ...gone!Saturday mornings as early as possible
If a buyer backs out , they shouldn’t be allowed to bid on another item for 90 days or % of the agreed price to the seller in order to bid before the 90 days has expired.
No commission or fee to the board
Yes good idea - the type of infrastructure would be like e -bay or ? hours on items or specific time entry for people to bid - There are three free conference online portals - Skype , Google Hangouts, or Free Conference Call - Could be usedWe are in the process of setting up a LIVE AUCTION once a week on the forum.
Looking for opinions and yes they are like assholes as everybody has one !
WHAT WOULD YOU (the member) LIKE TO SEE HAPPEN?
Some of the things in need of input and whatever else you can think of to be a POSITIVE asset to this endeavor !!!!!
What day? (OR DAYS)
What time? (OR TIMES)
What type of products would you like to see for sale?
EVERYBODY will have the option to buy and/or sell.
This is NOT a Vendor only driven deal . In fact private parties are what I'm trying to get involved.
Do you think it should be mandatory to have a % of sale back to the board? Or completely voluntary? or Not at all?
Please post your input as I am going to try and do this off any and all recommendations.
I think it would be fun, beneficial, and a good time in general.
Once a week it will be a little get together and a good time for all.
I will say I believe PAYPAL will be a must.
People complain that their opinions are not heard. Well This is the time to get your two cents in and make a difference.
Not Vendor Driven …...…… MEMBER DRIVEN !
Please no matter how big or small your idea is, please share it and if we have to "massage" it to make it work...well... Massaged it will be!
If you think its a crazy and will never fly idea, post that as well. In order to make it fun and positively productive Positives and negatives must be and will be addressed.
BOTTOM LINE ………… FUN !!!!!
Lemme know guys whatcha think and I would like to have it up and running by the end of the month.
Maybe I'm outta my mind. Maybe its a crazy idea, but like everything else in life "You don,t know till ya try"!
Might be a flop....Might suck... but if no attempt is made at having a good time and some fun I guess we would never know.
Post away my Turboed Car friends.
Lets get this up and going and have some fun!! Whatcha all think????
Im Trying...…..Working on it.... lolTo help keep the trolls and thieves out, you could require a min of one year and 100 posts to bid. This would also get more new people to be part of this great forum.
For some money to go to the board, you could ask the vendors to donate something to be auctioned every (week, month) once in a while with the proceeds going to Shane. It would be good advertisement for the vendors too. Heck, I'll donate a set of my bumper fillers to the cause. With shipping. I know many other vendors here who would do the same. IMO, This is an outstanding idea. It just needs someone to run with the ball.
