Be Free! Bidding Is No Longer Limited by Your Credit Balance.

It’s an all too familiar situation. You’re watching a few auctions, but you don’t have enough credits to bid on all of them. You might not win them all, but because each high bid puts a hold on your credits, you don’t even have a chance!

Starting next week, you’ll no longer have to choose! On Wednesday, April 5th, Listia will be improving the way you bid on listings in a big way:

  1. Bid freely — you will no longer be limited by your credit balance
  2. High bids will no longer tie up your credits
  3. Pay for items when you win

When you win items, there will be a new checkout process for paying the seller.

A few examples about how bidding will become easier:

Scenario 1
You have 500,000 credits available and there are 500,000 more pending on items you’ve just sold and delivered.

Today
You’re only able to bid up to 500,000 credits.

Coming Soon
You’re able to bid more than 500,000 credits. When you win the item (and your pending credits have transferred) visit the auction and pay the seller.

Scenario 2
You want to bid on something that is at 500,000 credits, but you only have 100,000 right now.

Today
Buy more credits now (and hope you don’t get outbid!) or don’t bid at all.

Coming Soon
Bid what you’d like now, and buy only the exact amount of credits needed if you win. You could also complete offers or sell stuff in the meantime to make up the difference.

We hope that you’re just as excited about these improvements as we are. The changes don’t just affect bidders, either — more flexible bidding means that sellers will see more bidders (and hopefully higher final bids) as well!

The changes will be live on Wednesday, April 5th. Until then, learn more about the feature at our Help Center.

Introducing Listia Plus

Listia Plus

Listia is made for people who want to simplify their lives and homes while connecting with others. Over time, people have come to use Listia more and more each day. With that in mind, we wanted to reward our most loyal users for the things you do every day. Whether you’re listing items, buying credits, or completing offers we have more to give you with Listia Plus.

What is Listia Plus?

Listia Plus is a paid monthly membership that gives you access to benefits across Listia. Benefits include extra credits deposited to your account every month, bonuses on credit purchases you’re already making, and bonuses on offers you complete.

When you sign up for a plan, you’ll get $10, $20, $50, or $100 worth of credits immediately deposited into your account depending on the plan you’ve chosen. As your membership remains active, you’ll continue to get this deposit every month.

How can I sign up?

You can sign up at https://www.listia.com/plus. Membership ranges from Bronze, Gold, and Silver to Platinum, each with bonuses ranging from 5-15% on credits and offers.

Can I cancel my membership?

Listia Plus is completely flexible — change plans or cancel your membership at any time. At any point during your membership, you can schedule an upgrade or downgrade to your Listia Plus plan. The change will be automatically made upon your next renewal date.

Is Listia still free?

Listia is 100% committed to always being free to use. You will never need to pay to use Listia or our main features. Listia Plus was created to reward anyone who is already completing offers or purchasing credits to buy items on Listia. Listing and selling your own items on Listia is still the best way to earn many credits without spending money.

We’re always working hard to bring more value and make Listia better for you. We’re excited to know what you think! You can sign up for Listia Plus here.

Introducing Credit Selling on Listia

listia_logo_2013

We’re always working hard to make Listia the best place for you to unlock the value of items around your home. It’s never been easier or more fun to simplify your home and life while getting the things you actually want. Today we’re excited to introduce the biggest addition to Listia since our iOS and Android apps. We’re now allowing you to sell your credits to other members!

What does this mean for you?
This means that you’ll soon see more items that you want on Listia as our members start listing more goods, you’ll see higher-value items in the marketplace and most importantly you’ll be able to earn more on Listia.

How will this work?
Very easy. Through an exchange (much like a stock exchange), sellers list their credits at rates they choose, and when others buy credits, Listia links up the seller and buyer anonymously, and both money and credits change hands.

Buyers in the exchange are the same people who have been always been purchasing credits. Payment is then sent to the seller’s connected Verified PayPal account. Listia handles the entire process which means once your credits are sold, they are sold. You don’t have to worry about any disputes and there won’t be any refunds available on credit sales. Only credits received for successfully selling items on Listia can be sold in the exchange, so you won’t be able to sell credits that you bought or received for free through other means like offers and promos.

When I sell credits, how will I get paid?
We deposit the net proceeds from your credit sales into your Verified PayPal account that you’ve connected to your Listia account. The deposits are made as your credits (or portions of your credits) get purchased from you by other users. Both the sale and purchase of credits are completely anonymous. Because a single sell order may get purchased in multiple portions, you may see more than one deposit in your PayPal account for a single order.

When can I try this?
Initially, this feature is slowly rolling out to our higher volume Trusted Sellers. If you are not yet on the waitlist, visit the Sell Credits page to see if you are eligible.

Whether you want to trade with other members, buy items for your home and life or get cash for your goods, we want to make Listia the best and friendliest place you go. Support for credit selling on iOS and Android is in the works and will be coming soon. Visit our FAQ page to learn more about credit selling and sign up today to start selling credits!
