Are there currently 0 items up for bid on Orchid-Bids Auctions?
Am I doing something wrong?
I'll give it a shot!
I am new here and I just saw the orchid auction board: is it also new? Is that why it is empty? Can everyone post auctions there? Is there a posting fee? It is so nice to see a specialized venue like that!
...oh, I see the answers in the site
Orchid-bids is not new, it is just used in spurts. Sometimes there will be several auctions or want-ads, and then other times it will be empty for days. There are no fees for listing or selling under 20.00 US dollars. You have to join the site and be verified before you are allowed to buy or trade in the venue. This protects everyone.
ok, so when I saw the $1 in there, that is just a one-time set-up fee? And the other fees only kick in over $20?
So if something is listed to start at a low price and then it gets bid up to over $20, you would then bill the fees?
The $1.00 is to prove who you are and verify your address. Of the dollar fee, the site rakes in a big .67 cents and Paypal gets the rest...lol! It is for security and it is the only way to sell, trade, or post a want-ad in this forum.
