Hi guys, was wondering how many Salehoo members had made it over to Bonanzle yet?

I just kicked off a forum post over there for Salehoo members to join in and list their id so we all know who are there.

If you haven't got yourself a free booth yet, you might be missing out on a good opportunity, so check it out!

Drop by and say hi if you're in the area.

Will wait and see a lot of people said ioffer was the next big thing but from what I can see you only get tyre kickers visiting no buyers.

Bonanzle will be a slow moving process unless people really start to get the word out. But, free listings are free listings!

Couldn't agree more.

Going to take a while to be considered main stream. It's the kind of site that you still have to drive traffic too, but that is no different than having your own shop.

Most there are of the same mind set of driving traffic to the site, and when you have that many people trying, it's only a matter of time before the buyers come looking.

My structure is different to most there, I'm not servicing retail customers, I'm servicing sellers themselves, so I'm using b2b sites such as alibaba and trade key to generate some traffic.

Thanks designer, off to a good start.

It seems that fans are popular in the States, three pallets gone in a couple of days...lol

Here is me thinking clothing would be the early mover, so much for me knowing anything....lol

Just happy to finally be in a position to help out :)

I have been at bonanzle for two months and sales are a little slow compared to ebay. Since Its free to have your booth does not affect me much.

Unlike ebay, at Bonanzle one must bring traffic to your booth as mention earlier.

Bonanzle provides tools to bring traffic like Google base feed, craigslist integration, twitter integration and much more.


My main tool for traffic has been craigslist as this point.

my user id at Bonanzle is fairdeals4u

god bless all

Hi Guys, thought I'd throw my two scents in. I've been at Bonanzle for a month and most of my traffic has come from Google and craigslist, but I'm also drawing some traffic from RSS Mountain from my feed there. Also 53% of my traffic now is returns vs. 47% new which is what I like to see. I haven't had a sale yet but I'm still new to all this. I did have a sale on Ebay but my price was so low I barely made a profit on it. My current profit line is still low but it gives me enough room to negotiate which is partly what Bonanzle is about.

Couldn't agree more, the split level structure would definitely add a lot to the site, and create some interest.

Howdy, I think you can find me on Bonanzle also! 'Blazey' . I'm so busy listing & promoting my booth I haven't been on here much! Also, the discussion forums keep me hopping with all kinds of great ideas to promote. My personal favorite is where buyers can go to the Items Wanted section & ask for something--good tool for sellers to check out often. Anyway, gotta get back to Bonanzle, just had an offer!

Know what you mean about listing blazey, we have another 37 liquidated stock loads I am supposed to be listing, just struggling to find the time at the moment.

Good luck with it!

Stop messing about an get em' up there. If they can't see it, they can't buy it.

Invaluable wisdom right there.
