I said I would keep you updated as I receive word about upcoming upgrades and changes to www.onlineauction.com so here it is.
Over the next few weeks there is going to be a major overhaul in the categories available. It is going to be set up with a 4-tier system which will enable easier browsing through the categories. Since most of us search through keywords, this will enable the “window shopper / browser” to find things quicker. Now we all just have to be very careful to moniter our listings and make certain they are all in appropriate categories. There is still weeks of testing and once it is finalized I will let you all know!
This is one of the biggest beefs mentioned. The fact that items are being placed in the wrong areas. We are able to automatically choose two categories, so when we can not find two appropriate ones, some end up being placed in “near enough”. Sadly, this reflects badly upon us all. We are all trying to fix our titles and make use of the generous title space we are allowed. We are also making better use of common searchable words. As one of our sellers said “Sell like we are buyers”.
Please bear with us as we are upgrading, and making our inventory easier to find. Have a great day!
