The Selling Tab of the 'My bidorbuy' page contains all the information related to your selling activity on bidorbuy. 'My bidorbuy' remembers every item you have listed and every sale you have made. It reminds you if there are buyers waiting for ratings. It keeps note of all the questions you have been asked, all the questions you answered, and the questions still awaiting responses. To access My bidorbuy, click on the link at the top of the site to login and select the 'Selling' tab.
In 'Sell items', you list your merchandise for sale by selecting one of the standard bidorbuy formats: Auction, Buy Now or Classified. Use the personal offer link when you want to invite a runner up bidder of one of your auctions to buy the item in question at the price they bid. Personal offers can also be used to make a personal offer to bidders in an unsuccessful auction i.e. an auction that failed to reach your reserve price. The Sell a car link takes you to the car section of bidorbuy, where you can list your car in the Classified format.
The central part of the 'My bidorbuy' Selling tab gives you the cross-section of your selling endeavours on bidorbuy. Arranged by format (Auctions, Buy Now's, Personal Offers and Classifieds) are the listings which are closing soon, open, open with bids, and the listings you created for a future date (not yet open). Here you may also review your unsuccessful Auctions and make personal offers. Underneath are the links to your unsuccessful listings, the closed listing history and deleted listings.
At the bottom of the central panel is a link listing all the Buyers you have blocked. Blocked Buyers are unable to buy from you in the future.
The right hand side is devoted to the sales summary. Here you have links to the list of items you sold today, in the past week and in the past month, arranged by the selling method – Auction, Buy Now and Personal Offer. You may also access the page with all your sales and search for the items you sold by item or order ID, a word in the title, Seller's product code and the Buyer's name or email.
bidorbuy provides comprehensive reporting functionality within 'My bidorbuy'. These reports will provide you with valuable information in accessing what products sold when and for how much; allowing you to analyse your business with regards to what works and what doesn't. Among the most useful data you have at your disposal is the number of visitors to your listings. Use this information to guide your listing strategies.
