    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.

    New site layout is a mess. Very Inefficient layout. Looks like a back door amateur designed website. Not class leading!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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...

    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.

    I can't see the seller's names. There are some sellers I don't want to buy from again, or who are just dreamers in the stamp section that I want to just scroll past. I can't find the "search for sellers" anymore. I normally search for a few sellers daily to see if they have anything new posted that I might need in my stamp collection. If I move my mouse towards "what's new" it moves over the top item on the left, I think it's called "digital", then a popup bar appears and covers "what's new". Annoying. I like to look through the stamp section with rows, like it was before, but tiles are default and I have to constantly click rows with every search. Annoying. If the item is a buy now or an auction isn't clear either. Why do you have to change something that worked perfectly and was user friendly?

    Hi @queen of hearts Update on the Seller Name: We've added the seller names, rating count and if verified the verified badge on the List View & Grid View: I'm aware of other queries in this thread and once I have feedback I will post it here.

    Hi @time_machine Thanks for sharing. You are correct, for the time being you can access the old site via the link you mentioned however, this will not be a permanent feature. In light of this, if you spot any bugs or issues please would you share the specifics with us so that we can take a look at them.

    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.

    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?

    Very happy to see some action,this is serious problem,so please address it another major problem is when u list for crazy wed the duration has to be done manually-previously when u clicked on crazy wed during listing the starting date and time would automatically be activated and then we only had to manually install the end time,this has added a few minutes to each listing,surely a simple fix please also on the home page the toolbar cannot just have promotions and expect buyer and sellers to understand what these are this should be promotional auctions and under this a better display of crazy wed and snap friday,weekend specials etc in block format ,highlighted etc as these are important saes auctions and buyers can see where to look and go to them please address these there are numerous other funsctions that need addressing so please read the forum and take action thank you neil

    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 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!!!

    @DaveDave2013 When downloading sales I can only download sales for the past month. Why can't I download sales for a longer period. I allow 30 days and sometimes even 60 or 90 days for combined shipping. How am I to download sales older than that?

    @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?

    for sure,we been here and helped bob grow,but now they dont give a sh,,t listings being tedious is one part of the problem,the main thing now is the buyers have no clue how to do things either,they cannot see who the items are being sold by until opneing the items ,so all the goodwill u built up with clients is gone out the window,i have hardlly had views on my items for wed which shows me the site is a problem as by now i would have many views and watchers its ridiculous,will someone please take responsiblity and fall on his sword or is this like eskom where no one takes the blame and no one knows who is running the show??

    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.

    these are not teething problems,these are poor design faults that could have been foreseen if any one bothered asking, similar to medupi and kusele design flaws,BOB SHEDDING (SELLERS AND BUYERS)IS THE NEW BUZZWORD

    There is a workaround. Add a photo to the description from the carousel as described by ATA STAMP CENTER. Once the photo is in the description, right click on the photo and then click IMAGE PROPERTIES. Then paste the URL of your photo into the URL field, replacing the Bid or Buy URL. Click OK and the image in the description will change to the image hosted off site

    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.
