  • New Craft Auction Site


    My friend has literally just launched a new craft auction site like half an hour ago.

    Free listing and nothing to pay if the item doesn't sell.

    It's small scale for honest, reliable crafters with a max of 50 items thus everyone gets seen unlike eBay where you type in 'jewellery' and get 50,000 hits or something!

    And...oh yeah...d'uh...the address:~ - My Craft Challenge My Photography! Craft Website - Which I think I might add a forum to - what you think? My research into making money online!

    for your first three listings choose small items as no matter what bid they reach they will be sold at a maximum of £10.00.
    I don't think I've seen any auction site with this type of condition. Also,the site is missing quite a lot of things.

    • Where is the site's privacy policy?
    • What methods can the buyer make their payment and the seller receive their payment?
    • What's the site's policy on Distance Selling Regulations?
    • Where are the contact details, (a site like this should have a postal adress and e-mail address as a bare minimum, not just a contact form)?
    • What's the name of the company running this site?

    That's just a few things.

    While it is a good concept, it needs a lot of work doing to make the site look more legitimate and therefore make the company running it look safe to do trade with.

      Have to agree with Stephen, there is no proper information on the site and I honestly can not see anything selling on there as it is. Perhaps with some more work on it and providing the correct legal information then it may "take off".
