One of the features requested by a great number of eBid sellers has been “Make An Offer”.
Make An Offer allows buyers to send an “offer” to sellers. Ability to do this has been awaited for a long time by eBid community.
And guess what?
Yesterday, eBid actually implemented Make An Offer feature into their website!
If you follow this blog, you might remember I made a 2-part review about eBay alternatives. In part 1 of eBay alternatives review, when I reviewed eBid I mentioned Make An offer feature was coming up and now I’m pleased to see it actually happened.
This feature is not yet fully functional as there’s no ability to automatically decline or accept an offer based on a minimum the seller requires. The eBid administers announced the automatic decline/accept ability will be implemented soon.
In my opinion, it’s a big improvement for eBid and it will strengthen their currently number 1 position between ebay alternative sites (based on number of listings).
Two Great Features
They added two great, long-awaited features back to back in a short time: “Cancel Sales” and “Make An Offer”. These two important additions enhance the shopping/selling experience for buyers and sellers.
Cancel Sales enables the seller to cancel a sale as they see fit, e.g., when payment isn’t received or when the buyer requests cancellation. As soon as cancellation is done, which is through the AAL (After Auction Log), fees if any are refunded and no feedback can be exchanged.
I see a really bright future for eBid as one of the successful online marketplaces. I anticipate eBid listings to surpass 7,000,000 in a short period of time.
