    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.

    DISCLAIMER: I'm posting this as a regular user and not a staff member of BoB. The below are just ideas in my head... One way it can be done is to implement a user scoring system and collect metrics based on user behaviour. You can, for example, score every user on anything from "payment success ratio", "how many SNCs are caused by this buyer/seller", "Abandoned orders ratio", "Order delivery score", "QnA response times", "Positive seller ratings in last 3 months" etc. A good one might be "how many sellers have blocked this buyer". You really can measure anything you want. Once you have a pool of these metrics you can use a set of them to guide a potential "time waster" on a different user journey. If the buyer rating is accurate enough you can one day maybe give sellers an option to only allow "high quality buyers" to be able to bid or at least flag them on the seller's view (or maybe sit with the sellers and ask them what they'd want). On the flip side you can also use some of these metrics to compliment the current user rating and give a better overall indication of the quality of a seller. Collecting the metrics is easy enough but making them mean something that is accurate and without bias so that false positives are kept at a minimum is a bit more challenging. Last thing you want to do is stop a legit R20,000 sale by accident. That's just me spitballing although I've had an idea for something like this in the back of my mind for a long time but never got to it. The potential for something like this is huge, but since I'm leaving BoB at the end of this month I won't be able to push for it (maybe somebody else at BoB reading this will bookmark this post and get the ball rolling 😛 ).

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    stupid system, hurts my eyes, time consuming, new format is created by someone who does not sell on BOB - I predict they go back to old format in 24 hours

    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 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.

    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.

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