Prepaid Credit Cards

Starting on 7/22/2010, we no longer allow auctions for prepaid credit cards (or money gift cards) from American Express, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa.  This rule was put in place because these cards are very much like cash, which has never been allowed on the site.  Up until now, they have been sort of a loophole in the no-cash policy.  However, this rule does NOT affect other kinds of gift cards.  All other gift cards (Amazon, Target, Walmart, etc.) are still allowed on the site at this time.

We realize this decision is a bit controversial and we have received lots of feedback, both positive and negative on this change.  As such, we are definitely interested in hearing your opinions.  Feel free to open a ticket to let us know how you feel if you have not already.  Thanks for everyone’s continued support!


New Shipping Options


We’ve been working on some new shipping options and they should be pushed to the site soon.  Hopefully it’s self explanatory, but if you have any questions be sure to let us know.  The main change is the addition of shipping type which can be either “flat” or “exact”.  When you select flat rate shipping you must specify the cost you will be charging.  Exact shipping means you’ll charge exactly the amount it costs to ship the item, no more, no less.  We’ve also added a region for International shipping so you can specify where you’ll ship to a little easier.  Of course if these shipping options don’t suit your needs completely you can always write more in the auction description.  Enjoy!

Video Contest Results!

We are pleased to announce the results of our recent video contest!  It was an extremely hard decision with a lot of internal debate about which video was the best, coolest, most fun, most creative, most informative or simply had the most effort put into it.  In the end, we still couldn’t come to a decision on some of them so we ended up with a few ties.  

1st Place: blakelyneal 

2nd Place (tie): spyda0507 and canneryrowdoc

3rd Place (tie): organicmomma and johnruss

Also, we liked some of the other top 10 videos so much that we have given out prizes for a few of those as well!  If you were in the top 10, check your account to see if you won 100 bonus credits for being an honorable mention 🙂

We appreciate everyone’s hard work on this contest and hope to do another soon!
