      Site Updates - 16th December 2006

      Our next software upgrade will take place at 00:01 on 16th December GMT. We will be down for around 30 minutes while the upgrade takes place.

      On resumption of service users will notice our new "Platinum" level of access will be made available for the first time. Users can upgrade from the current status to Platinum immediately.

      We will be running an offer for around 2 weeks over whereby we will multiple all the subscriptions paid to date by 10 and put this towards the full cost of our Platinum Lifetime subscription. The day after the multiple will go down to 9 and so on.

      Offer Dates
      16th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 10
      17th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 10
      18th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 10
      19th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 10
      20th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 10
      21st Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 10
      22nd Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 9
      23rd Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 8
      24th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 7
      25th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 6
      26th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 5
      27th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 4
      28th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 3
      29th Dec - Gold Subscription Payments x 2
      30th Dec and On - Gold Subscription Payments x 1

      Platinum Lifetime Costs
      uk 149.99
      us $229.99
      ca CA$229.99
      au AU$249.99
      ie 199.99

      eg. If you have already paid 44.99 for a Gold Lifetime we will multiply this by 10 to give you 449.90 and this will easily cover the 149.99 cost of Platinum. I'm afraid we will not be giving any credits for the remaining 299.91!!!

      Platinum is our new access level for professional sellers. A summary of the options can be seen below.

      Other changes include
      #Revamped My eBid Summary
      #After Auction Log fixes and additions
      #eBid Store naviagation changes
      #Login for status link on auction pages
      #Gallery Auction 2% variable closing fee
      #Specific feedback highlighting
      #Option to automatically load My Default set on starting an auction
      #My Favourite Searches daily emails
      #Edit auction page changes

        We finally put up the changes we've been workingon for the past couple of months today. Here is a brief rundown of them. Let us know if anything isn't working 100%.

        Platinum Auction
        Silver eBidders can now use this new auction format to list auctions with all the options normally only available to Platinum eBidders. Including BuyNow, Auto Extend, Video and Gallery Thumbnail

        Google Checkout Integrated Checkout added
        Platinum eBidders and Silver eBidders using the new "platinum" auction format can now add their google check out merchant ID to allow their buyers to make immediate payment via google check out. AAL will be updated with authorisation, payment and shipping entries entered via the GCO site.

        GCO Icon
        Added icon to listings for auctions where Google Checkout is available as a payment option.

        My Bulk Upload changes
        eBid spreadsheets can be saved as text delimited files and uploaded to your My eBid area. Spreadsheets can no longer be emailed in. A check is made on upload and then the non-errornous auctions can then be launched.

        New Sorts
        Search results and category listings can now be sorted by start time and also if they are new or used items.

        Q&A Duty
        All questions that you need to answer whether they are current auctions or closed auctions can now be found on the My eBid summary page.

        Single Page Listing
        New auctions now use the same single listing page as reposts. We hope this will simplify and speed up the listing process.Tidied up the Featured auction table.

        eBid Store Listings
        Removal of empty stores within the eBid Store listings.

        eBid Stores

        Popup Help
        Added question marks around the site for quick help references.

        Browsing Auctions
        Allowed browsing (non searches) to use the filter system. eg. filter by Buynow and country etc.

        Help Pages
        Slight redesign, updating and tidy up of unnecessary pages.

        More By This Seller
        Random choice of auctions to show instead of same ones repeating.

        Bid Increments
        Added fixed bid increments in line with other auction sites for listing simplification and to stop confusion and questions to support desk from many users.

        BUGFIX - After Auction Log on a buynow and winning bid of the same auction

          Site Updates - 24th August 2007

          All the problems over the last week have now under control. A very important one of our servers decided to lay itself to rest after a very busy life and caused us all sort of problems. These problems won't be encountered again due to some more stringent backup policies we now have in place.

          Images that are over 1 year old and have not been used within the last 90 days will be removed from our servers on a daily basis. We used to do this until about a year ago when we had some problems with images disappearing, it is now being started up again as of today.

                          We've re-added our logo to uploaded images.
                          It has been disabled for a little while since the new design and we got our heads round the transparency problem with rounded edges.
