    I cant post parcels as i cant see who paid or who hasn't. You are responsible Bidorbuy. Fix youre site. You are really deteriorating the last few months. You making it impossible to sell on Bob and that affects both of us. Its like my 8 year old is programming and designing youre site, But i do think he can do a better job, Employ people that can actually do the job. Or just get rid of who ever did this crap. There is so many problems to mention. Did you contact Wix to get someone to design youre site? Because he cant.

    A very poor amateur attempt. Please let us keep the old site which we and the buyers are happy with. At least it works and is user friendly which is more than can be said of the new site.

    See new format and one can no longer see who the seller is when scrolling without opening the post. There are a few sellers that I would not buy from again and it is a nuisance to have to open the post to see who the seller is.

    The problem is that BidorBuy has in a way lost contact with the people who pay their salaries – the sellers on BidorBuy. (We have seen the same thing with the current Government who does not realize that the taxpayer is the person who pays the salary of the government employee). It seems that BoB has over-compensated trying to please buyers in every possible way, but have lost contact with the sellers – those hard working guys and girls that keep BoB going every minute of the day. BoB, before you switch off the old link – please do a survey under top-sellers regarding how happy they are with the new BoB-layout. If most are predominantly against the switch, and you proceed regardless, you will probably be the ones that will be switched off. On a more positive note, I think you need say 6 months to panel-beat the new system before you do a seller-survey - THEN you will know if you must switch :– your “tax payers” will give you the thumbs up (or not). And then you will know if the majority that pays your salaries are happy and what you must do to keep BoB successfully afloat. I wish a prosperous 2020 to all BoB–staff and fellow Bobbers. Together we will (and must) succeed. Pierre Pierre_Henri26391 100.00% Positive Ratings

    BOB does not have a great history of listening to sellers complaints. Let's hope that this time is different. Please BOB remove this new site which appears to have been written by an amateur with little understanding of selling on line. We are quite happy with the present site and so are our buyers. I can only see a downturn in sales from now on if BOB persists with this very poor site. Please BOB, for once, listen to your sellers !

    Agreed. Cant open auctions that have current bids on. Horrible to navigate.

    Good to see that BoB is bang up to date and in tandem with most of the rest of South African service providers. If it works - bugger it up. Make it as unpleasant and tiresome an experience as possible for the users. And phooey to the punters. The Forums remember them? Vibrant. Lots of threads. Keen discussion with many regular contributors. Then - some IT genius plays clever. Result - a moribund, dull, near dead thing kept "alive" by spaz admin / mod posts about ridiculous holidays. The IT genius has struck again ...... at the main site now. Just like with the bakery in Checkers - it SHOULD be a pleasure. But operator initiatives, poor quality staff & lack of customer care make it a pain. So - one walks away. Sadly, though, SA has an unsophisticated, malleable, sheepish general public / consumer base which will put up with any old rubbish tossed their way. No matter who stays, goes, relocates - there will be sufficient uptake of new dummies, seller & buyer alike. Of course, BoB has an eye on the main market ......mass market of low grade consumers glued to their cell phones. Hence the change of emphasis and the continuing dumbing down. But BoB's still yer uncle -l copping the dough from zillions of connected dummies; much to the chagrin of the now marginalized less basal user. And so it goes...........

    I just checked out the OLX site - BidorBuy's only current competitor in SA, and it looks if the same programmer is responsible for both major disasters. (The OLX-site is strangely similar, but even worse than Bob's new layout). BidorBuy - PLEASE just revert back or face the music - currently something like 90+% of those in the forum-pole are urging you to do that. What exactly is difficult about understanding that the overwhelming majority of your current users are horrified ....? Just give us back the old format please. The new one is not sucking, it is a disaster already happening.

    I never write on blogs, but here i think BidorBuy made a real mess of a system that even if it was not perfect it actually worked. To try and re-list 700 plus items per day on this clumsy layout over 2 hours it is a little too much time spent. I agree with the above comments, a Beta version should have been tried out , mostly with the larger sellers, pages are clumsy and cluttered, poor design....etc etc. My 2 cents worth.. Carlos

    When I receive a message from a buyer, I can only see the first sentence. In the past you can click on "read more" to see the rest but now that option is not available ... The question thus stops in mid sentence...

    @DaveDave2013 I am disappointed that after more than doubling our fees almost 2 years ago this "new look site" that is a disaster is the result of all that extra money we have been paying you. We asked for simple little things like, allowing us to group multiple order together, a simpler more streamlined SNC system, etc. What do we get from you? Just more complications. The problem with BoB is not the layout!!!

    I had two orders this morning. On the one I was allowed to rate only one sale of the 2 on that order. On the other order I was allowed to rate the buyer for each individual sale. On neither of the 2 was I allowed to rate multiple items in one order at once. It took me almost an hour to process 2 tiny orders which shouldn't have taken me 15 minutes.

    Hi I HATE the new BoB format. The older format was oh so much easier to use and view......

    I see the forum has been quiet-likely due to the fact that we sellers on BOB are real troopers and get on with things the best we can under trying circumstances. Most i assume are using old layout or a mix of the two like i am to try and make headway as it seems BOB will not change their mind but re hellbent on forging ahead, Be that as it may there are still some major flaws,i have been listin on new layout and a problem i reported a week ago is still not fixed. On crazy wed listings,i assume still a big moneyspinner for bob in fees and commissions,there is still no correction of the fact that when u click on crazy wed the drop box opens and has correct starting time but u cannot alter the closing time of 23h45 in the drop box-u have to go out and left to duration box and then put in opening day,time and closing day and time and then u can have correct closing time for auctions-THIS IS TIME CONSUMING AND UNNECESSARY-please fix this if u serious about sellers listing on new system. please look at olf promotional auctions defaults and do the same as it was please,cant be so difficlut to fix that it takes a week there are other problems that will be aired shortly but this is VERY IMPORTANT PLEASE NEIL

    Just my 2c worth. Before BOB increased their commission Crazy Wednesday listing was around 4,000 listings a week. After increase it dropped to around 2800 listings a week. After new design it is today less than 1700 listings. BOB your sellers has spoken.

    The New look is Totally Crap akin to the new look on OLX. Go back to what we had. Who thinks up this type of thing? Idiot!

    This new site is awful. I don't even feel like making the effort to list anything on it. But this is Bid or Buy for you and they won't listen to the people who keep them afloat. Once you lose your loyal customers you won't get them back. It's simple, and you don't need a business degree to get it right - listen to what your customers want.

    On the new site when listing for crazy wed u cannot change the end time,please check this,default is set at 23h45 but when i want to end earlier it does not allow changes on the clock also when setting the status of orders then it throws out an error please check these,really trying to use the new site but costing a lot of time when u have to do listings over and over\ neil

    Hi @TradeRouteAuctions If you navigate to all your open products we have "Sort By" button with the relist option. Note:The result is currently showing the relist products ascending (which puts the trades with the relist option on the last page) I will ask our developer to just make a change to show the trades with a relist option as descending. (I will keep you updated on this change) I hope this helps you and please let us know if you encounter any new issues.

    Hi @ATA STAMP CENTRE You can rate multiple users in bulk, and rate one user with multiple orders. Here's the step by step guide on how to do it: 1. Navigate to My Bidorbuy - Selling and click on Feedback: 2. Select the orders you want to include in your bulk rating: 3. Click on Rate Selected: 4. You will have a pop-up where you can write your feedback and save the rating which will apply the same rating to the selected orders: To rate a specific buyer you can use the Refine section on the left: I hope this helps you and please let us know if you encounter any new issues.

    Yes there is way too much space between the listings ( and they still can't get the sellers name in) The old site displayed 40 items on a page, the new one has just 24

    The new pages look too EMPTY with lot of white background. It might take weeks / months to get used to it. I SUGGEST sellers and buyers have to be given a choice to to use older layout.

    Can only rate per single item and not multiple items per buyer as we were able to this is too time consuming so ratings will not be completed anymore from seller and buyers alike and no true refelction of serivice will be recorder........one thing after another, and this was designed and effected by BOB internal it department...........my sweet geezuz....people who should have an intimate knowledge of the inner workings and needs of sellers and buyers,,,,,i think not,,,, why please ,why did you gentlemen not do a test group first before this live disaster??

    I wonder if the programmers have ever sold anything on BOB, new system 1. Hurts my eyes 2. too much scrolling, you cannot see all pictures and the description in same frame, you have to scroll, to much clicking "next etc" . keep it simple, another thing you have to copy and paste each photo into the "add picture" link if photo comes from outside, why can't you just copy and paste all 6 photos in one go?

    The "new" look is the final nail in the coffin... I for one will be changing over from BoB on it's death bed to an online platform that is actually alive and kicking! (and has a far better reputation than BoB with clients all over the globe - sadly fewer SA buyers but I am certain that with the changes that BoB has made, this other platform will sky rocket!) Bye Bye BoB... my condolences to all affected!

    @DaveDave2013 When I click on Sales to (Insert Buyer Name) I cannot see the thumbnails on the orders. Only once I have changed the status of the order the photos become visible.

    @DaveDave2013 Why can't I rate multiple items within an order? Must I really rate each item individually now? Why does it not auto-complete my rating? Should I now be typing each rating out? Was this new look tested before it was launched?

    Bidorbuy is one of the most uncustomer focused companies I've experienced, they do what suits the developers and screw the end users, it's a weird choice to make. From what I have seen the new interface is garbage, try finding the rating and how to rate a buyer or edit a rating on your sales list, the interface layout also changes randomly with each new sale . Also the contact number is not listed below the address on an order, why do that.. They appear to do just about zero User Experience testing, maybe it's a bunch of amateurs running the ship.

    Sometimes it goes even beyond, buyer responds / appeals to SNC saying they are planning to pay and they are given further time and still doesn't pay. We are forced to keep the item for over 15 days and end up losing the selling opportunity during that period.

    I am currently doing exactly the same, very time consuming option and it take 2 to 3 times actual times to list. Thanks anyway.

    These terrorists (or at least the ringleaders) are either police or ex-police. So the possibility of them being caught is slim. The law-abiding "white pigs" support their luxurious lifestyles. Too lazy to work, easier to loot and rob! Crime does pay for them! They are lower than filth! Hang them high!
