    Thank you for your concern. @Seeds and All Many first time buyers are skeptical thinking they are scammed when something goes wrong. The buyer was very co-operative later on I have no issues with them at all. As a long time seller we are willing to loose to monies to keep buyers happy. But, Lately bidorbuy reverses many SNCs due to no fault of seller, this is the worry and many customer care reps seems new as well.

    If I was this buyer I would have offered to reimburse you for the courier fees you incurred as it wasn't your fault. It is a bitter pill to swallow when Bid or Buy instructs you to exchange the "faulty" item but not hold the buyer responsible for the extra fees you incurred due to their negligence.

    A quick update, after this post and further followup - SNC was concluded and I got the fees refunded. Only loss was courier fee.

    This was resolved in a couple of days. We exchanged another lens with buyer which also didn't work and We later found that the lens was not compatible with mount. We refunded buyer in full. We pasted the communication below to justify what we are talking about. However We did pay courier both ways to send and collect and paid Bidorbuy commissions and our SNC was rejected - as usual it's always SELLERS FAULT. We lost round about R 500 in total with fees & courier fee

  11. When I listed some items last week (normal listings not Crazy Wednesdays or Snap Fridays) , there was no charge for picking a second category - the block showed that it was free (previously there was always a R5 charge when one pick an additional category.) Two days before the item(s) opens I looked again and now suddenly I can see that BoB will indeed charge the R5 for the additional category when the item(s) open. So what I am saying is that when I listed the items it cost me say R10 per item in enhancement fees, but now it will actually cost me R15 per item because BoB added a R5 charge that was not there when I listed the item. I am talking of say 100 items that I listed like that ....

    Suggestion Box

    Can BoB please release an API to the public - at least for buyers. I want to see what's new, what's on etc. without using the BoB interface - e.g. I'd like text only responses, or the ability to search by private sellers (not businesses) - perhaps by filtering by sellers that have been on a year or longer but have fewer than x ratings.
  13. Pierre-- Are you referring to the Wed crazy, week end specials,snap Friday auctions etc as there has always been a charge on those. Sorry I am not understanding what you are referring to

    Hi Adri M van Zyl, This is good to hear. Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge the excellent service you received from seller Thivha2000 Kind regards Andries
  15. This is respond I received from BidorBuy Good day Pierre, Thank you for your email. You will be charged for the enhancements when you confirm your selection and the fees incurred in this way cannot be refunded. Thank you. Kind Regards, xxxxxxx Customer Service Consultant Email: hello@bidorbuy.co.za Customer Service: : +27 10 005 6200 ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I have no idea what this person is trying to tell me... Can someone somewhere in a management position at BOB PLEASE answer my actual question? Here we go again ... I see that BidorBuy have changed the Promotional Category Listings from the short-lived free (no cost) to the previously charged R5 fee. I have listed many items with a Promotional Category Listing that was free at the time I listed them (the past week or so) but the listings have not opened yet. But because BidorBuy-fees only kicks in when items open, am I going to be charged the R5 fee per Promotional Category Listing when the item(s) opens? Or will it be free because when I did the listings, there was no additional charge (at that stage) for Promotional Category Listings?

  17. Thank you Tash May I suggest that you do not refer to it as the "old" site. That is the ONLY site that many of us top sellers use. The latest version is practically unusable for many sellers. Kind regards Pierre
  18. Good day Pierre_Henri Hope you are well. Please note that I have sent through the details to our Tech department to look into the matter. When looking at the issue the closed listings only displays on the old site and not the new site. Thank you very much. Have a great day and be safe.

    With years of buying from BoB and sometimes getting bad service or loosing money, i wish to congratulate BoB on the seller THIVHA2000 which does not only go the extra mile, he also builds a road before doing so! So amazing to find this honest seller who is setting new standards for other sellers. Congrats!

    How do add tags to my listing

    Good day kimbo11 Hope you are well. Please note that I have requested a Customer Service agent to contact you in order to assist you with your query in order to list your item. Thank you very much. Have a great day and be safe.
  21. This screen shot was taken today 30 September 2021 of the TOP listings (first page) of the coin category - see the "top" coins - they actually all closed (sold) a month ago already!
  22. There seems to be a disconnect between the Bid or Buy marketing team and the sellers on the site. They seem to "blindly" pick listings to enhance, at no additional fee to the seller. (Probably to encourage other sellers to enhance their listings in those categories in order to remain visible...) We've been waiting for more than a week for one of the marketing team members to contact us regarding items of ours that they enhanced in their spring catalogue, without our permission or knowledge. One of the items they enhanced in their spring catalogue was seeds that are meant to be sown in autumn which puts us in a bad light! On one of these we were actually charged R 10.00 enhancement fees even though we never agreed to those advertising fees. Last year, between November and December, they enhanced several of our listings at no fee but neglected to inform us of it and then edited the listings to not relist after the closing period. It took us 2 months to figure out what went wrong and why those items never relisted and were closed! Surely there must be a better way of involving sellers on Bid or Buy in the process of deciding which items get advertised.

    Possible R10 coin?

    Funny thing is I asked a co-worker who his thoughts and he wasn't to keen on the idea either. He mentioned that he'd rather have paper than change jingling in his pocket... Regards Robert
  24. Yes 2mill per variety made up the 6mil? Smiley, old and new arms. I could be out as well as I'm quoting from memory from a 2000 MTB book...
  25. For example, this item ... https://old.bidorbuy.co.za/item/526879767/Southern_Rhodesia_George_V_Certified_Proof_coin_THREE_PENCE_1932_PR64_NGC_rere_coin.html ... is still listed on BidorBuy as if is still available - right at the top under premium listings. Here is another one right at the top of all listings under the coins category on BidorBuy ... https://old.bidorbuy.co.za/item/526879548/Southern_Rhodesia_George_V_Certified_Proof_coin_HALF_CROWN_1932_PR63_NGC_rere_coin.html Both items (and there are more) actually closed (sold) on the 25th of August - more than a month ago but they are still listed ... Must we now compete in our listings in terms of enhancement fees paid, to non-existent ghost listings that are listed "above" ours, but actually sold many weeks ago and are not available anymore?

    Possible R10 coin?

    Nooo. Another thick coin like the R5 in your wallet. Hopefully they make them smaller and thinner.
  27. Hern's 2008 catalogue gave these as R100 for unc and face value for others... but this is an old catalogue so it could have changed. Mintages were included with the Mandelas at +/-6.2mil. No proofs were minted
