  1. Auto-positive Feedback

    Since most buyers don't leave feedback, the system should automatically place a positive feedback on sales without buyer feedback after a few weeks have passed.

  2. purchase USPS postage via Bonanza & receive USPS Commercial Plus Pricing

    Currently higher volume sellers can purchase USPS postage at Commercial plus pricing (on ebay)-- which is significantly less then standard post office prices.

    Can't we implement the same savings for our sellers here on Bonanza?

    You can save up to 33% on certain shipping costs!

  3. Get a new way of paying

    I went to order an item, and when I had to wrestle through the pay pal stuff and give up all my information on personal other sites, I gave up won't try again. Not good practice

  5. Have Otto send an (external) email to seller if negative feedback is received

    Currently no email is generated if a seller receives negative feedback.

    Despite our best efforts, there are those few customers who go directly to the negative feedback to resolve problems.

    The only way to find out about the unhappy customer is to log in. During the summer months I might not log in for 30+ days.

    Have otto immediately send an external email to seller letting them know about the negative feedback.

  6. allow pages to return or remain at the same place on the page after an item has been edited rather than returning to the top of the page.

    When the page goes to the top of the page after an item further down the page has been edited, it causes one to lose their place and just wastes time having to scroll down 100 items. Please, this is an easy fix.

  7. Allow sellers to set their Chat Box as not being available to chat with.

    I recently just had a customer post in my chat box.

    I keep my chat box closed at all times; however, the notification always says I am online regardless if I am behind the scenes working on my booth, sort of "closed for inventory" at this time or what have you.

    The message that the customer left in my chat box was due to the customer thinking I was available to chat about a product I have for sale. This is because the message above the chat box says "seller is online."

    The chat message from the customer went like…

  8. Private, single use coupon codes

    Private coupon codes and ability to track redemption rates.

    I hit up the local brick/mortar ad boards and post business cards. It would be great to offer private coupon codes and track my success when they redeem the code.

    If they were private we could also use them to issue gift codes.

  10. Could you make a search for 'ships from'

  11. Choice of % or $ in item price discounts

    In the "price discounts" section of the booth settings, where it says "Orders totalling more than $__ will receive a __% discount on the order subtotal," could we have the option of offering a fixed $__ discount instead of a percentage? If I was to offer a fixed $10 off of a $50+ sale in my booth, the discount would be more predictable than giving 20% off the actual sale total, especially if the sale ends up being $200 (and the discount swells to $40 instead of $10).

  12. Allow sellers to add a note to buyer when marking an item shipped.

    It would be great to be able to add a note to a buyer when marking an item shipped. We would be able to give them more information about the item and shipping along with a personal note, thus not having to send this in a separate email or bmail.

  13. Autosave listings periodically so that as we are typing a listing out & a problems occurs we will not lose that listing

    There is nothing like putting a lot of time into a listing and getting toward the middle or the end only to lose that listing. This can happen for a number of reasons....the electric goes out, a browser not responding and getting hung up so that the browser has to be closed out, or a simple glitch that causes us to lose the listing.

    This would be very handy if while listing, the listing can be on autosave periodically so that the information we lose would be minimal. Yahoo has this but they call this a Draft. If a problem…

  14. Reduce eligible weight for USPS First Class Parcel to 2 ounces.

    The Bonanza calculator only allows packages between 4 to 13 ounces to select USPS First Class Parcel. The USPS will ship with that service down to 1 ounce, although the price for 1 ounce is the same as for 2. I ship a lot of 2 ounce packages, and would like to offer calculated shipping options to my buyers. Now I can only use fixed, which means that I have to update the prices whenever the USPS raises theirs..

  15. instant download

    Allow sellers to upload a file (.pdf) to a listing. When the buyer purchases, the file is automatically sent to the buyer. this limits wait time and will keep this site up-to-date with other sites like Etsy.com and craftsy.com which already allow this.

  16. Put the currency coversion link to the top-right corner of each listing

    I know this link is on the bottom left of each listing, but I found that many non-US buyers visit and leave.
    One of the reasons is they want to pay with their own currency, but just don't know we support multiple currencies for them to choose from.
    British want to pay in pounds, Australian want AUD, European want EUR ..etc

    They aren't be bothered to scroll down the long listing page ( depending yours ) once they see the USD symbol.
    They thought this site is US exclusive and just left!
    Too many sales lost....................

  17. Expand the Bulk Editor to allow seller to use their own custom categories as part of the Category ID section in the Filter option.

    Currently the Filter option in the Bulk Editor only allows you to select from the main Bonanza categories. I have over 1,000 items which fall into only 2 of Bonanza’s main categories but that I have set up in 20+ custom categories in my booth for better customer service for my buyers. Being able to bulk edit based on my custom categories would greatly enhance the value of the Bulk Editor to me.

    We’re still calling around to payment processors to see who we could best work with on this. It’s certainly not the simplest feature, but I think we might have a lead on a payment processor who can handle it for us.

  19. Offer tokens for marking items incorrectly cataloged, very time consuming.

    There are far too many items in the Catalog incorrectly cataloged, which would be very discouraging for buyers outside of Bonanza. With the catalog taking up a users entire screen, a new buyer would not know an exact match might be found by scrolling down & would probably leave to purchase elsewhere.
    It is time consuming to mark items incorrect. Bonanza would be well served to offer tokens for this as well as tokens for indexing the item correctly. A win/win for all.

  20. implement reviews for books

    Books are easy to review after you read them and it is the first place I go when buying a book, I read others reviews and I always post a review after reading a book I have purchased, there are thousands of books on Bonanza I would think it would be a bonus for the site and sellers for buyers to be able to review book purchases.
