Greetings from the USA.

Any fellow members from the old gang still active on the forum? Andries are you still around and keeping your eyes on the group?

 

We been thinking of activating our account again from this side but there are a few issues we need to work out before we do. A trip to my other old forum, gave me a few ideas and even items sold here got me thinking of perhaps selling items on BoB again.

 

Is it worth it?

Any ideas?

 

Cheers All

I am lurking and busy with work, but I really needed to pop in and say hello to our fellow extraterrestrial (if the wall goes up your side, get one of these and come back to SA)

 

FWIW - we are planning to revive the forum in Q1 2017 and move to another platform which will become more engaging. I personally miss the lively discussions from 2010.

 

I think you will be happy to know that we have established partnerships with a number of courier partners (Pargo, ParcelNinja) which will make fulfilment easier. We have introduced Make-an-Offer on buynows, added new payment methods, co-own uAfrica (which runs Shopify and has tight integration with us), launched a new Android app (still lots of work in progress) and constantly rework our offering.

 

Bob is still the best place to sell in SA :-)

ha ha ha ha ok Mac. and the funny thing is, we got 2 of those in at work about a month ago for escaping fires in buildings. These yanks think of everything.

 

I hear you Neil, maybe next year we can get things moving again.

 

Mac, sounds good. postage from here to there is a killer even Ruthie has cut down on her listings because of that. If we can somehow get postage down, we can move stuff back and forth. Who do I contact to reopen our site?

 

Cheers all for now cause its am here and it's laundry day woo hoo!

 

Waar is daai Andries?

Mac, I'll be interested to know and see how the app is going to work. An app that is easy to use and easy to upload an auction is always welcome. Over here, I have used a few different apps to take pictures and list my items I want to sell and they are very easy to use.

ne man alles goed hier. I'm mixing cement on my days off hoping to get a few sales.

 

I chat with Ruthie every other week or so but will give her a call on thursday. Sam and the that gang are good, I spoke to them last about a week ago or so. Will give them a shout too.

 

Hows you doing, boetie? Getting bored cause we ain't talking crapola on the forum?

 

Wake those people up in admin, cause I sent them a message for paperwork to sell again on the site. Tell them if I don't hear from them within a reasonable time, I will be contacting my new president to handle matters via tweeterbook.

UPS want to work with SA maybe FEDEX too.I heard a figure of around $6.00 a LB. If you can get a deal with one of those then we can sell on BoB and postage won't be a killer. As things stand now, postage is too high to send stuff over there with the exchange rate.

I stop in every now and again to see what is happening, but the Forum appears to be deader than dead. Sure could use a little life breathed back into it.

 

Been busier than a cat trying to cover poop on a marble floor with remodeling and landscaping work that could not be put on the back burner of ignore any longer. Planning on 'listing my life away' come the first of the year.

What Wayne said.... Brainstorming this side of the flat map.

Been busy with a new Mission Impossible... keeping a certain guy, wearing little more than a trench coat, on the straight and narrow. He can't be left unattended for a prolonged period of time, ya know. A BIG job, but somebody has to do it. :rolleyes:

Boetie, I did get a response but the wrong info. Laurence thinks we want to bid on stuff, we want to sell again on BoB so need that information.

Nape sent you the email on 29 April 2016 with some questions you need to answer first. TICKET ID IBR-598-78640 leave the laundry and check your spam folder. Will ask him to re-open the ticket for you. Now I see what Ruthie is talking about...

Oh my word. I thought we had banned you :P

Looks like the US has become too dull for you and you need some local action :-) - Let us know when you list your first batch of covfefe from Nambia.
