Well I have gone for the doctor and introducing a new auction website for New Zealand.
Please wish me well (prayers appreciated)  I know it wont be easy as I did the exercise a few years ago and we only got about 1,000 registrations.

I couldnt believe that the old domain name was still available laughing. and it sounds like an auction name!
Keeping it/domain unannounced till I have the site up and running with some semblance of professionalism. The PHP code is a reusable from my last auction site, so there should not be too much ado there.

However, if anyone wants to give me a hand with testing etc welcome just PM me.


Site fees Im open to suggestion but possibly I can do something like the first per user $100 of sales free thereafter a lower rate than TM.
I had a pretty sleepless night considering whether to repeat my previous effort and mulling over the possibilities and have a bunch of promotional ideas that may make it more successful than last time.
Hopefully the timing is right now since there is no Sella as competition and T&E both of which were around back then.
With the demise of Wheedle I might get a few sympathy votes!


PM me with any ideas you are welcome.
Kind regards,
Alistair.

Yes good thinking; exactly the stuff needs considering and Im sure there is more. Depends on the level of success though ta be sure.

freitasm Ill ask you to move this part of the thread to a new one when I make the announcement later if you dont mind to keep it a thread of progressive input from others as to the direction the bidding site can be taking.
An open discussion will help immensely.
