Default What would YOU like to see in a online auction?

I have been toying with the idea of starting a AH over the past few months. Have even purchased a domain and spoken to lawyers etc.

I want to make it a pleasure for everyone (buyers and sellers).

I would like to hear from both sides as to what 1-2 things they want to see the most in an online auction house in regards to operations mostly.

please post here.

Have an amazing day.

I would love to see lower condition/value cards lotted individually. I'm really sick and tired of seeing cards I want and could actually afford, combined into lots with a bunch of other cards I have absolutely no interest in.

There's an auction on ebay right now, where the single last card (a supposedly scarce/rare card) I need to finish a team run, is in a lot with 9 other cards I either already have, or have no interest in. I'm forced to either overpay for it and end up with 9 cards I neither want nor need, or forego it and hope I find the single card somewhere else.

I don't need to know anything ancillary about the card or the player on it. If I'm even looking at the card I already have enough information about it to be interested.

Do the following:

- Make sure that a user cannot place more than 3 bids on any item. I was watching an eBay item last night and somebody actually bid 30 times - no joke!

- It is unnecessary to write a 7 page University essay describing the item, player, history, etc. We already know all of that!

Just some quick clarification. Are you referring to shilling? Otherwise wouldn't this hurt a buyer who really wants an item? If they get outbid 3 times they would be elongated from contention.

Or do you mean enter 3 total max bids?

On eBay you will often see someone raise their max bid like 10 times just to intimidate other buyers into thinking there's intense competition for something. But really all 10 bids were placed by the same guy.

Ok so that isn't shilling then. That's just a buyer strategy that has not bearing most likely on final sale price correct?

No, the only way it affects the sale price is if another bidder bids. Otherwise you have a guy who raises his max bid a million times just to make it look like other people are bidding. Each raise is counted as a "bid" by eBay. It's so you say to yourself: oh look, 30 bids, I probably won't win this.
