    Did you hire the ceo of s.a.a or Eskom to redesign the site. It is an total messup. I for one am spending my money on facebook rather than here. Return the old site before I will shop here again.

    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.

    Common Bidorbuy, WTF is going on with the new format. It is bloody terrible. As I explained on the live chat, BoB is going to lose sellers including me if you do not revert back to the older format. Have you ever considered those people that are not as computer orientated (most older sellers fall into this group), that must now navigate this maze of crap that you have created. The system if difficult to navigate for both sellers and buyers and I have been on BoB for 11yrs, it looks to me like BoB now does not give a **** about its clientele. This system is a NIGHTMARE. Can BoB issue a response please. I see a lot of other complaints about the same thing. I am also unable to get work, having survived 2 major heart attacks and this is one of the platforms where at least I can generate an income to support myself and now you are probably destroying the lively hood of many others in similar situations. COMMON BOB, GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER

    This is incompetence.... You develop a new site...let it go live and you have issues galore... Why would any one give the go ahead on a site where they still have not sorted all the issues?? By blocking a Poll you will not make the issues go away.... At least when someone complains about something acknowledge it!. Why do you ignore the people who brings in the money?? This is a joke !!!

    Before the poll was autocratically stopped, nearly 90% of BoB users gave a thumbs down to the new layout. I suspect most of those responses came from sellers. "Admin" will probably not respond now, but in a few months they will - the end might be near then ... In the mean tone, just use this View Desktop Site Pierre_Henri26532 100.00% Positive Ratings Joined 10 Jun 2009, Cape Town

    Hi Admin, I read through the comments of sellers and buyers who are dissatisfied with the new layout. WHERE CAN I READ THE REPLIES FROM ADMIN? I would like to have clarity on how the Bidorbuy team are responding to the frustration expressed by the sellers. Thanks,

    I see that both positive and negative ratings are now shown in "green" vs. the old system where positive was green and negative was red. The only difference is a smile upwards or downwards on the smilies face, but where you have to have a magnifying glass to actually see what is what. Why not just drop the whole rating system with this utter nonsense where one can hardly spot buyers (and sellers) that are bad company? Bob, why do you make it more difficult to spot persons that are wasting all our time and money?

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

    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...........

    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.

    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.

    really bad -I am a seller with over 50k plus positive feedback and you would at the least have expected Bid Or Buy to contact myself and other long-standing sellers for input (let us try a beta format or give suggestions) before going live with this creation. I use Firefox as my main browser now I have to use Chrome to get back to the old site. I find the new format confusing and clumsy

    @DaveDave2013 It has now become so complicated and mind-numbing to sell full-time on BoB... I have noticed multiple flaws in your new layout. It has stripped away many valuable functions sellers have used for more years than you have been at BoB. Even if the functions are still there, getting to and using them have become cumbersome.

    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.

    I would not know whether I am Arthur or Martha when it comes to what programmes Bidorbuy use. When my son talks IT I lose him in the first sentence Since we have been on fibre and switch the modem off when there is load shedding we struggled to get the internet to work when switching it back on. We have a Granny flat with a tenant who has a connection to wifi which seems to be causing the problem Of course the first person I scream for is my son He comes around unplugs the tenants wifi connection ,switches the router back on,switches the modem off,then switches the router off,switches the router back on,switches the modem back on,gets into internet,then plugs in the tennants wifi. How the devil he worked that out baffles me but it works and the internet will not work unless that procedure is carried out Of course he had to write it down otherwise I would be lost first time round There must be some way,however,of getting round this or something lacking in the fibre connection.

    A quick search of cellphone prefixes like 072 073 082 etc when searching users shows well over a thousand user names. Some are clearly not cell nos. Most are users with little or no ratings.

    I do not use the new system. It is impossible to use for big sellers like me with a monthly turnover of 100 000s of Rands. If someone wishes to list a pantie or bra now and then, its probably fine if you don't mind the effort & time it takes you ... But for me it just does not work. Please, just revert back to the old BoB or at least keep this View Desktop Site until most of our old time mega-sellers have retired.

    I was driven nearly mad by this new interface. Then a miracle occurred - for some reason I ended up at the very bottom of the page. And there, last item, final line in light blue ..... a link ..... View Desktop Site. A somewhat less unhappy bunny here now. But you poor sellers..... Be brave!

    If you aren't a collector, then you presumably don't know the collecting culture in your country. I don't even live in South Africa but I can tell you a lot about this subject having posted here for about 10 years. This forum is a dead zone now but when it was active, I have never encountered a similar mindset anywhere else where there was such an obsession with the financial aspects of "collecting". The best explanation for it being a dead zone now is the collapse in the price level. Someone being a regular buyer of coins doesn't mean they know anything about what they are buying. You can read the historical posts here where I contradicted the claims here from many contributors. A few just disagreed with me but mostly, they just didn't know what they were talking about. Here is my description of the two listings linked above: First one: I see a lot of things, but looks to be post mint damage. A few look to be blank planchets which aren't errors either. Many have an appearance where I don't know what to think of it. If it actually came out of the SA Mint like that, they must have really poor quality control. I agree with Robert's assessment. Looks like a created "error" to me, whoever did it. Second one: Looks like post mint damage. If it really was clipped at the South African Mint, it doesn't look like any clipped coin I have ever seen. I can't say it's impossible but it is at minimum unusual and not in a good sense either. (It is a very unappealing coin.) It also looks to have other post mint damage (bent) which I assume occurred when the metal was removed from the planchet, however it occurred. It's also possible South African collectors have a different definition of "error" than I do or in used in USA coin collecting. I don't collect any error coins but the CONECA website does (or at least did) have a glossary where they list at least some (can't say it is all) error categories. CONECA is the USA error collector club. Not that it really matters, but I'd also rate the chances NGC or PCGS would holder it as errors to be zero.

    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

    The Poll has been disabled, no more voting.... Very sorry for BidorBuy, the new site in reality is an absolute nightmare. By the looks of it Bob has lots somewhere around 30% sales in the past week. I just do not understand , even by chatting to costumer services,who have very little to offer in advice, because they actually do not know how to fix any problem that is posed to them,why was a beta version not tried, so at least all the niggles could be sorted out.Just poor code. I have been on Bob for over a decade, personal opinion is regardless what is said on forums etc, nothing will happens. Lets us see what whats over the next couple of weeks.

    The whole date and time set on the new site is unusable - not bad - but utterly unusable The old format on setting the time and date for the start and end of an auction was light years ahead. It took me seconds to do it old style - HORROR now - the "updated" version is from the 1990s Please BOB - ....use a stopwatch and measure the time it takes "old" style vs. the Victorian "new" format. There is just no comparison.

    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

    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 !

    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!

    This is a disaster, as an old school programmer this web design is the worst I ever seen. Look if the web designer is a grade R beginner, just crying for his mother and want to go home, well you welcome, leave your mesh where it belongs in the dust bin and reinstall the old web that was working. I complaint all day about the resolution but it seems to me you are unable to rectify a simple common error, pixels brother, that's how real programming work, not uses black boxes of other designers, you do not understand how it works. I will definitely send BidorBuy to hell and buy direct from the seller on your site!!!!!!
