Over the next few weeks, Listia members* will notice a new look to the Credit Activity page. Now, you will be able to view all of your activity on a simple transaction sheet, making it clear how many credits are available to you for bidding, versus credits that are tied up in bids, or simply pending.
As a result of this change, the green number in the upper right hand corner reflects the number of credits available for bidding, but not the total number of credits in your account.
Credit Balance: Total number of Listia credits in your account
Pending: Credits you will receive after the winner receives their item
Current Bids: Credits that are temporarily in use as with winning bids. When you bid on an item, if you have the winning bid, those credits are temporarily held while you have the winning bid.
Credits Available: Credits you can use to bid right now
When you bid on an item, if you have the winning bid, those credits are temporarily held while you have the winning bid. Now, it will be easier for you to distinguish how many credits you actually have available to use for bids while the other credits are tied up in other auctions. As always, if you lose the auction or are outbid, you will notice the return of your pending credits into your available credits.
We’re really excited to bring this improvement to all of you, and are eager to hear your thoughts. If you don’t see it yet, don’t worry. This feature is rolling out to all Listia members over the next 2 weeks.
