We’re excited to announce that some long overdue features have finally been released! The first one is called “Get It Now”, which has been our top feature request for as long as we can remember. The other is a much better photo uploading system, which will make listing auctions much faster and prevent those gateway timeout errors that occur when listing auctions with lots of photos. Basically, photos will begin uploading as soon as you select them, instead of waiting for you to click the submit button. In many cases, they will be done uploading before you even finish typing the auction description!
What is “Get It Now”? Here is a brief description of how it works:
Get It Now is an optional feature that lets sellers specify the exact amount of credits they would be willing to accept to end an auction early. Bidders would then have the option to “Get it Now” instead of going through the auction process and competing with other bidders. The Get it Now option is available throughout the duration of the auction, until a bidder has decided to use it. However, once bidding on the auction has reached 50% of the Get It Now value, the Get it Now option will be removed and can no longer be used. The Get It Now option is available for all sellers with the Seller Wings badge.
Thanks for everyone’s continued support and feedback! We will continue to push out new and exciting features based on what everyone wants.
