HOT & RED HOT Buy Now items?

Recommended Posts

When you look at the "What's Hot" section on the Home page, it only features Auction items that reached the "hot" and "red hot" stages.

Why do the Buy Now items that have sold a lot and reached this stages, not feature in that category?

We list Buy Now items and pay for Highlighted, Priority and Featured listings, but do not get the additional exposure on the "What's Hot" pages!

I agree Digi perhaps items that have been viewed many times should also get there.

As far as I'm aware, Hot and Red Hot are governed by the number of bids.

If an item has two bids it goes Hot, if it has four, it goes Red Hot.

If the system is automatic as it probably is, it won't take other factors into consideration as it wasn't created to look at other factors.

No, it is not governed by the amount of bids only. Everywhere on the site you will find "Buy Now" listings that are Hot and Red Hot, Look at the items I am selling. The very first listing had a Hot sign after the first two sales, and Red Hot after the fourth sale. These items should then feature under the "What's Hot"-section.

True, don't they?

I thought everything that reached Hot and Red Hot was there.

Buy Now Items should definitely also be listed there then if they sell more than one item.

That's not really fair, is it?

Definitely, all sellers should get the same basic exposure whether they ave auctions or buy nows

It's there - happy paging, this doubled the number of items for What's Hot.

THANK YOU! The filter option is still there for the users that only want to view the Auctions.

This will definately boost sales for buyers with "Buy Now" listings, which means a bigger income for you as well.
