Bob Appraised Art Category

Hi,

Has Anybody Used This New Function To Appraise Art And Found That The Appraisals Values Are Not That Great ??? Or Misleading ?

The Bob Appraiser Is Listing His Art For Sale On Bob. I Personally Feel That The Appraiser Should Be Independent From Selling Art On Bob .

Thanks

I wasn't happy with the appraised value on a piece I submitted - and as such will not be using this feature. I didn't realise the appraiser was also a seller on BoB...

The Appraised Art Category

 

Hi everybody,

 

We started the appraised art category to try and instil a bit of confidence in the buyers on bidorbuy that they were buying truly authentic South African art.

 

Unfortunately, along the way, we experienced a few glitches which have made some sellers quite unhappy.

In order for us to rethink the strategy of the new category - to make it more fair and efficient - it will be closed until further notice.

 

Thank you

Hi there

 

I think the appraised art section although a noble and pleasing concept, is a bit tough to pull off, unless you are going to employ a full time independent art expert. I saw some strange values listed under this section.

 

I think it would be better to monitor the existing categories and improve them first. A point in fact is the ongoing irritation being caused by mass produced Chinese paintings that are being sold as original South African art. This is a very quick and simple matter to police and would greatly improve the site.

 

I am very impressed though with the new layout, looks good!

 

Kind regards
