I keep on getting this annoying error when logging in, on the "https://www.bidorbuy.co.za/jsp/login/UserLogin.jsp"  page meaning I have to retype my user credentials again for no good reason. Screenshot attached

Does this happen on all browsers ?

I am using Firefox and it works fine.

I just sat literally hours to figure out stuff that has changed from a seller side, 

1. I no longer receive emails on goods that has closed (the mail stated closed relisted - or closed not relisted) or even worse, sold.

2. When I relist an item I would actually like for it to be automatically removed from the Unsold/closed list for example, to prevent double listings. 

3. Sometimes none of my open listings (auction or Buy now) shows up in the Seller Section. 

4. Items that's automatically relisted should not show up on the closed section until it's finally closed. I have to actually go and look up if the item is really closed or not.

5. Any items that closed, says Item closed with no items sold, view the relisted item, but the badge shows SOLD.

6. I am unable to offer a buyer more than one shipping, although all shipping options are enabled.

Selling takes now double if not doubledouble the time.

Bidorbuy doesn't care, stop whining 😋

I joke but it is probably true.

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.

A couple of things about the bulkload:

It seems to no longer work on the old site because I get "down for maintenance" error messages when I try downloading.

Using the new site the info is displaying in the wrong columns. From the start date time column onwards everything is one column to the left of where it should be (so the starting time comes out in the traders reference column etc). This has happened a couple of times.

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 !!!

I wonder if Bidorbuy is going to give the option to allow adding images via URL to the description in the new format?

Is that not basic functionality?

Hi Sakkie, I simply do not use the new site and use this View Desktop Site

The new site is simply and totally unusable...

I notice this morning the link to the old site has been de activated,now only the help number is there

I think its time management replies here on the forum as to why nothing is being fixed,are they not able to fix things,or do they think everything is fine the way it is when numerous sellers have pointed out the various faults

The duration of promotional listings still not fixed,its very time consuming too change everything manually when the defaults can easily be set to help us.

etc etc

Am I missing something

On the old format we could search for a sale 

Search by order Id  Find Order
Item Id, or text in the Title or Product Code  Find Order

Buyers UserId, Alias, Email or Name  

 

On the new format  only the order number

 
           Order Id           Title           Buyer         
 
This is not user friendly

I don't think I've had such a bad month of sales in about 10 years, and I wonder if the new format has contributed to this? One of my frequent customers is still there, but she has expressed frustration with the changes and a preference for the old format...  It's definitely not just the sellers that are feeling frustrated.

One of my pet hates of the new system is the Find Item box which has the Item ID as your first choice.  In which universe am I going to search for items with the Item ID, which assumes that I already know the ID number and that I have therefore found it before.  Instead I now have to first press the down arrow, then choose by title, then click again to type my search, then click Done again to make it work.  Just an extra time waste, instead of having the option readily available without the scroll down.  And unfortunately for me I use this search a lot when listing similar items

....and in order to get to my Bidorbuy page I have to login and then use the drop down box to get to my Bidorbuy

2 clicks instead of 1.Everything seems to have drop down boxes...is there any way someone can think up a way to click links once instead of twice 

...Oh!! wait a minute that reminds me of something

I just love the OLD Bidorbuy format.Kudos to the one who developed it

The text in the description field of my listings has moved to the left hand margin. I always centralize the text in the description field. This appears to be only with listings I have added since the new format began and other listings I have updated. 

Could this please be looked into.

Same with most of my listings as well.

Some listings few of the images are centered and few are left aligned.

I had to go thru each and every listing to see if it aesthetically pleasant and not jumbled

I think it just looks nicer when the text is in the centre. So if you are having the same thing it's obviously an issue and not just me. Like I said, the older listings all seem to be fine.

Definitely this problem came after the new site layout change,

but it shows in old site as well.
