Enhance while open


enhance bidorbuy listingsThis is one of the notable improvements that the bidorbuy HQ has come up with: sellers can now enhance their open listings, even if there are bids or orders on them.

It is a well-known fact that enhancements do help sell an item. After all, enhancements are just another word for advertising, and we all know the power of advertising.

The bidorbuy platform is a highly competitive environment. More than one and half million products jostle for attention of prospective buyers at any given moment. In order to make sure that a pair of eyes lands on their listings, sellers need to make them stand out. And one of the most effective ways to do so is by promoting listings with enhancements.

Until recently, sellers were able to opt for enhancements 1) when creating listings and 2) when editing not yet open listings. If sellers happened to change their mind half-way through the listings’ lifespan on bidorbuy… they were not able to do anything about it.

Now they can, and the procedure to follow when adding enhancements to open listings is very simple. A step-by-step how-to is available in this Help article.

So, if you start wondering whether your non-enhanced or partially enhanced listing would do better with more exposure, you can go ahead and add an enhancement or two. Of course, you need to remember that there is a price tag attached, which will be charged to your bidorbuy account whether the item sells or not.

In order to make the most of the additional enhancements, sellers may opt to extend the duration of buy-now listings for 30 days from the date when the additional enhancements were created. For obvious reasons, this cannot apply to auctions (they have to end at the date that was originally set).
