I have been going over in my head about Bonanzle recently and why I was not selling anything there but am on Ecrater.

One thing I thought of was that I use Paypal on both of my Bonanzle stores as the only payment method.

Many sellers on Bonanzle are former eBay sellers and they absolutely hate eBay and Paypal. With a passion I might add.

So decided that I will be changing my payment methods on both stores to Google checkout.

Maybe this will help.

There are other safe payment methods you can offer like Paymate -- is based in Sydney, Australia. They have websites for both its Australia users and its New Zealand users.

Sellers from this region have a great alternative to PayPal. Sellers can receive money from over 37 different countries -- that means buyers from over 37 countries can use this service to buy what they are looking for. Fees are very reasonable: a seller could easily make a profit using Paymate. The overall payment service is designed to send money email-to-email. That makes this service even easier.

Another one is Moneybookers they are a reputable company with above average financial resources. This service allows you to send and receive payments from around the globe. It is free to signup -- once you get going the whole thing is set up in under 10 minutes. The service can be used to send money person-to-person (to an email account) as well as used for auctions and other online business activities.

Hope this helps bring in more customers to your store on Bonanzle! :)

planes...that might help some but I too have been on bonanzle for over a year now and have always offered both Google Checkout and Paypal and still find little luck on that....with Bonanzle it really comes down to what your selling and how your getting your booth advertised. If you search the forums that site still has little luck to get the majority of sellers on there to get more frequent sales.

I whole heartily agree it has a great group of seller but at this point in it's life
bonanzle has few buyer's They may get it right in the long run individuals like myself are promoting our site,s face-book etc it has a bit too much of a garage sale feel with it at the moment and I'm not sure that it can win that customer from e/Bay
