Default Ever heard of Bonanzle.com?

What is Bonanzle? Bonanzle is by far the simplest yet sophisticated online marketplace around. I don't blame you if you are skeptical; there are a ton of alternative marketplaces out there right now. Bonanzle is different, we are an "Alternative to Alternative eBay Sites."

We have respectable traffic, listings and users and most importantly sales! What is more amazing is the feeling you get when you are at Bonanzle. It is truly a very exciting time to be at Bonanzle. Still not convinced? Why not Google Bonanza and see what others are saying about us. You might see in the results that ECommerce Guide recently named Bonanzle "The Best EBay Alternative We've Seen." Don't take their word for it, come see for yourself.

Make sure you stop on by before August 31st. All sellers who set up a booth prior to August 31st will not pay any fees for six months! That will include the all important Christmas holiday! It is always free to register and free to list.

Bill and I sure hope to see you soon.

I like Bonanzle - quite a lot actually. Probably one of the most aesthetically pleasing auctions sites I've seen, very easy to navigate, and well laid out item page. (Emphasis on the seller/feedback with it being displayed at the top, along with emphasis on the item specifics like price, format, shipping, etc). Nice AJAX style cart addition as well.

It would certainly be nice to see this site prosper.

Do you get much UK interest?

I just this morning read this post and just now finished putting a few auctions on Bonanzle.Easy sight to negotiate.A few glitches in the listing frame but not a big deal as I worked around it.Hope to make a few sales and test the waters.Most of my sales before the VeRO police got me were to overseas buyers so I'm hoping this sight gets some international attention.
I like the format so far and setting up an account was a breeze especially since they charge no fees yet and the fees that will be charged are easy as pie to understand.
I too hope this sight prospers and builds to the point where I can prohibit buyers from countries I won't ship to.

Bonanzle is cool. Pretty easy to work with, when setting up. The people couldn't be nicer. I mean the ones who run it, the ones who list on it, and the ones who come to shop.

I'm smiling a bit when I say they are an enthusiastic bunch of people. If you know what I mean, you're grinning to. If you don't already know, you will soon.

Anyhow, I haven't made a sale of any kind, but I haven't really put any effort on that site yet. Still studying the whole thing before making any solid plan.

I hope it doesn't lose steam. It's the next best thing, if it works out. I recommend anyone with a bit of experience to go have a look behind the curtain. You will likeee!

Not at all. Having a joke. I admire your enthusiasm for what you want to do.

Bonanzle is growing ultra fast! They have over 50,000 members now and growing by the minute. I am very very impressed with Bonanzle, by far the best Ebay alternative to show up.

I like Bonanzle. I have sold a few high end handbags on their site ... Balenciaga, Bottega Veneta so they allow vero but if your item is a ⊗⊗⊗⊗ it will be pulled. Does not have traffic like ebay does but it is growing. Also, you can link your listings to google base.

Why don't you do Bonanzle a favour and not sell VeRO.

It's people like you that bring such sites down.

Mantisinc, I think trg005 is talking about selling authentic designer items, not ⊗⊗⊗⊗. I see nothing wrong with that. I sell those too.

I sell brand name health and fitness materials. I also sell brand name supplements. Those are VeRO items. But they are authentic and I am authorized to sell them. My listings still get pulled, from time to time.

VeRO does not mean ⊗⊗⊗⊗. VeRO just means that the manufacturer or *SOME* licensed distributor has designated somebody to be an ebay-cop. Those designated somebodies quite often are overzealous.

mantisinc, the shoes you wear are probably VeRO items, and are quite authentic. You can legally sell those. But if you list them, the listing could get pulled.

I really would like for people to stop mistaking VeRO for ⊗⊗⊗⊗. The two are not the same thing.

Bonanzle seems to know the difference. They will pull ⊗⊗⊗⊗ items, but will not pull authentic and legal VeRO items. At least I haven't seen it or heard it happen.

Those item groups are lists made by other users who browse around (sometimes at random and sometimes with a purpose) and create the lists from booths they find interesting. Each list is based on *some* theme (not always color).

I like the lists, too. I've actually made a few impulse buys for items that came from those lists.

If you know how to sell vero, authentic or not, you can pretty much sell it anywhere

Except for Bonanzle. Do not attempt to sell a replica because it will be pulled. I for one have no problem turning in a replica handbag and it will be pulled immediately, not days like on *bay. The owners are committed to making sure their site does not turn into anther ioffer.

I think you misunderstood what I was trying to convey. There are no known issues with selling vero items at bonz. No company has come along and said no and Bonanzle itself does not mind what you sell as long as it is legit and not a replica. BTW, I did not mean to imply I condone the selling of replicas. I only sell authentic bags. Mostly to tpf'ers.
