  3. Last week
  4. As long as you are listing and uploading images on our site, you will not have to worry about anything. This notice mostly affected sellers who listed before this change went into effect.
  5. Hi Good day need to advertise an item. not familiar with the http. what is the procedure to advertise a single item as a private seller. kind regards Ismail Abderoof
  6. Without going into technical details on why this is happening, an immediate solution would be to open the trade in a new tab/window. You can do that by either: right-clicking on the link and selecting "Open in new tab" or similar holding down the CTRL (or COMMAND on a Mac) key and clicking on the link It's not an optimal solution, especially in the case where something should disappear from the search results after it was actioned, but it should save you from having to run the search again.
  7. Western Cape numismatic meeting

    You are more than welcome. Contact Myself Or Pierre Henri for details. Regards
  8. Why no action from BoB?

    Hi Dave96, Without a positive link between seller and buyer on the system, there is nothing legally we can do. The Law unfortunately does not include the right to take action against someone for something that might seem obvious, which it may not be. Should you have documented proof that links the seller and buyer, please send it through to community watch and action will be taken immediately against the account(s). Kind regards Andries
  9. I have this problem too.It happens when I go into advanced search on my sales but not on current sales This is what I get and have to start the advanced search all over again. Confirm Form Resubmission This webpage requires data that you entered earlier in order to be properly displayed. You can send this data again, but by doing so you will repeat any action this page previously performed. Press the reload button to resubmit the data needed to load the page. ERR_CACHE_MISS
  10. There is an online seller of motor vehicles, usually auctions, who has a history of shill bidding that is soooo obvious, but when I point this out to the management of BoB, they seem to find it completely above board?
  11. Hello all The annual National Stamp Exhibition, SAPDAPEX 2107 was held at the Bedfordview Italian Club form 11th to 14th of October. As last year, once again a huge success. It was so nice to meet up with so many Bobbers (a term that Gabriel 1 phrased). At least one seller on BoB got an award for his exhibit, which was at an exceptional high standard. Trade wise, another exceptional experience. Thanks and regards Jacques
  12. To illustrate the fact that foreign buyers aren't prepared to pay the huge premium demanded for the silver Krugerrand, I had an enquiry today from a top-notch game reserve in Alicedale, Eastern Cape. An American guest staying there had wanted to buy some silver Krugerrands, but was so horrified by the price (R750) quoted at a well-known Port Elizabeth coin dealer that he thought that they had made a mistake and was asking elsewhere. When I confirmed the situation re the selling price over the actual much lower silver bullion value, I was advised that the American would be returning to the USA without any silver Krugerrands.
  13. Hi there For about the last week or so there has been the following issue with returning to a previous screen on BoB: For e.g. if i have done a search in my sales for a specific product and then I open one of the orders and then use the Back button on my browser to return to the list of items from the search it clears the search and I have to start the search over every time. This is quite annoying as well when I am going through a long list of unpaid sales and each time I maybe file an SNC and then use the Back button to return to the list I get a list of all my sales and the refined search has been cleared. If I have a list of 30 odd sales in my refined search then its a real mission creating the refined search every time after going into each one of them. I hope you understand what I am describing.
  14. You summed up my sentiments. A mintage of one million is low? Give me a break. There is also no comparison to the 1952 Crown because the survival rate on the silver KR will approach 100% decades from now while the 1952 Crown's is very low in a quality most collectors want to buy, as in probably less than 10,000.. The last time I checked the NGC census, the count was about 87,000. If every single other one was melted and ceased to exist forever, it would still be incredibly common as a collectible coin. For anyone who doesn't believe me, go look at the NGC and PCGS population counts for the US Morgan dollar where a few have similar or higher totals. This is a real collector coin. Now go look at the prices. After this reality check, does anyone still believe it has financial potential? In a prior post, I mentioned that I thought the silver KR would sell well to foreign buyers. However, I wasn't aware of the premium. At $50+ USD, it isn't going to be competitive longer term and I have no idea who is buying all the graded coins. Presumably uninformed "investors".
  15. Reporting Bad Sellers

    Please start a list of bad sellers like the list of bad buyers. All is fair right? Especially focus on those with excessive shipping who do not make use of the many cheap shipping options that are now available. Here's one that uses the 'you live in some area NOT in my backyard so you must PAY' method of delivery. For the edification of people in Gauteng, Port Elizabeth, East London, Stellenbosch, George etc are major metropolitan areas and not 'remote' locations. https://www.bidorbuy.co.za/seller/3508763/excellent_mi Shipping method Shipping details • Courier Door to Door Johannesburg.

No refund on shipping charges and A.D. fee. Warranty Type: Manufacturer 30 days warranty, buyer is responsible for return shipping costs .No claim for physical / water damage or Wear and Tear. So after paying for shipping (at R165!!! per item if you live outside of Gauteng) and to ship back to them again (because SAPO will not meet the within 7 days requirement) and whatever their 'admin fee' is, you'd be better off just sucking up the loss if the item isn't working. This is ignoring the R165 courier fee.
  16. My 1st bad experience - StorminaTcup

    Really? Been there done that with a different seller, turns out it wasn't sent and it is easy blaming SAPO as there is no way to check.
  17. Seller says no stock

    Do NOT rate sellers until you have the item in your hands safely. In any case part of the rating system is did you receive what you paid for - if you didn't, then they can't get a good rating.
  18. Just out of curiosity is there a similar list for useless sellers who over-charge on shipping, mess people about with BS saying item has been shipped when it hasn't, and all the other hassles I have put up with from deadbeat sellers? Because if there isn't this is discriminatory. There are just as many if not more bad sellers as there are bad buyers. I, for one, am entirely put off by the aggressive tone taken by some sellers = just heads up = the way I read the tone is that you ARE an a-hole of the first water taking that tone before I even interact with you, so no way am I going to engage - sale lost. If you do not have a reasonable rate for shipping using pargo or aramex or SAPO - get lost. This means the number of good sellers on BOB are far and few between.
  19. I am looking for a cartridge and counterweight for a Kenwood KP-2022A turntable. According to the specifications, the original cartridge is a Kenwood V-34. If anybody can assist me in finding these items at a reasonable price, I would really appreciate it. I am in the East Rand area of Gauteng.
  20. Agree 100% ... i will rather buy any AME, Maples or Kookaburas Have you seen the British new coins? (Queens beasts) .... note - without the "R"
  21. This super hyped up bullion coin is only worth its bullion content ,now and into the rest of eternity, if you believe in some other reality you should take a bite of reality before it bites you. As for the fact that these bullion coins are currently being bought for more than bullion it only proves that a sucker is born ever minute..... If you think it's pretty and deserves a premium, well that's just like your opinion man. I'm sorry if I hurt someone's feelings ,but this has to be said I feel in order to try and protect the real hobby and newcomers to numismatics. Regards
  22. I haven't seen a post dedicated to the topic of the 50th anniversary silver krugerrand aside from mentions in other topic posts, so I thought I'd start one seeing as this being one of the most hyped coins of 2017. Yes it's true, you'd have to have lived under a rock not to have heard about the long awaited silver krugerrand, as it has drawn quite the media attention through news articles, social media and coin forums. The coin has more often than not sparked controvercial debates amongst the bullion investor community, especially on social media like Youtube and coin forums like Kitco, with regards to it's high price and high mintage. I think the silver stacking/investor community was most vocal in their review of this coin as they were probably most excited about the release, expecting an afordable silver bullion coin as the gold krugerrand as pioneered and provided for so long. I would like to challenge the views the investor community have on this piece with regards to price and mintage. The problem is that they are looking at this coin as a standard silver bullion coin and it has already been well documented that this is a collector coin to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the krugerrand. No where has the South African Mint indicated that this silver piece will be an annual release, and personally I don't think silver has that much of an investor market in South Africa to warrant striking an annual bullion coin in high mintages comparable to that of the US and Australian mints. I admit the price was hard to swallow at R600 from the SAmint for an ounce of silver, but it's not that much more than the standard R2 commemorative crowns released in low mintages annually (key word being low mintages). Anybody could be put off by the innitial price being twice of thrice bullion value, though I have mentioned this is not a standard bullion coin. The price was further inflated in the international market due to high shipping costs and distributor mark ups, not to mention the reshipment of the US lot that had to be replaced due to damages. This along with the high mintage of 'One of a million' has brought on cristism and backlash from the silver stacking community. All but everybody has dismissed the silver krugerrand as a dud or flop of an investment, though I'm inclined to disagree. I see huge potential in this piece and I'd go further on to say, that I see a winning horse or may I say springbok in future. A million mintage is not that high, comparable to that of the 1952 five shilling and when you consider it globablly distributed, the idea becomes more sensable. The krugerrand is after all one of the world's most well known and recognised bullion coins (much more so than the disney coins that one person once said they would rather invest in due to the low mintage after discrediting the silver krugerrand). I see a winning springbok in the 50th anniversary silver krugerrand, because it's not only collectors and numistmitors that will be after them but I think all those german gold investors would be keen on them as well. If you have the entire gold kruger set, I'm sure you'd want this commemoritive piece as well? And the silver stacking community wants these pieces as well, don't let all the negative reviews fool you. They want it bad enough to be very vocal about it and once they see the price refuse to fall to bullion spot price, they will jump on the band wagon and cough up high premium prices. This is afterall a premium uncirculated coin, and what a beautiful one at that!
  23. Excessive shipping fees?

    This has been a huge problem for a long time now - excessive shipping fees are not justifiable any more. Aramex, Pargo, even SAPO offer reasonable and safe shipping options. InternetExpress is also very reasonable for courier fees. There ARE inexpensive options so if you think you are going to make money on the shipping after underpricing the item - get lost. I always check the shipping, and if you over-charge - well that is a sale lost. Sorry but you aren't going to profiteer off the shipping at my expense. Another thing that is a huge NEVER going to buy from you red flag - is a snotty aggressive note on your items about negative feedback - here's a hint - you avoid negative feedback by giving good service. If you have to crap on potential buyers before they even came anywhere near you to avoid negative feedback - trust me - that is a huge red flag your service is bad.

    Hi Morne' I would like to attend. I don't have much expertise in grading but I enjoy the hobby of collecting and numismatics to the point where I consider myself knowlegable. Regards Robert.
