Enhanced Listings help Sellers promote their items by increasing their visibility throughout the relevant bidorbuy pages. A fee is charged for most 'Enhanced Listing' options however you will always be clearly warned of any fees before confirming your listings. If you wish to promote your items using 'Enhanced Listings', choose this as an option on the 'Sell' form when you are creating a listing. Read an article written on some of the benefits of enhancing your listings.

There are nine types of 'Enhanced Listing' options:

  1. Premium Listing
  2. Home Page Featured Listing
  3. Category Page Featured Listing
  4. Paid Promotions
  5. Priority Listing
  6. Highlighted Listing
  7. Bold Listing
  8. Promotional Category Listing
  9. How to Enhance Your Open Listings

1. Premium Listing

The item will be eligible to be part of the Premium Listing's block, located above the Home Page listings on the bidorbuy home page as well as at the very top of pages showing lists of items such as when users are browsing category or paid promotion pages e.g. Crazy Wednesday. View the following example:


Other than being promoted on the bidorbuy website, the items listed under Premium Listings may be promoted on other participating websites for additional exposure to an extended community of internet users.

The item will be displayed as part of the 'Home Page Items' section on the bidorbuy homepage as well as at the top (except for Premium Listings, if applicable) of pages showing lists of items such as when users are browsing category or paid promotion pages e.g. Crazy Wednesday.

6. Highlighted Listing

The item will have a "highlight" tag attached to it to stand out from other listings on most listing pages, such as category pages and search results. Highlighting does not apply to listings on some specialised pages.


7. Bold Listing

Enhance your item with a bold title on most listing pages, such as category pages and search results.


8. Promotional Category Listing

If the item fits into more than one category, the Seller can list it in a second 'Promotional' category. Usually a R5.00 'Promotional Category Listing Fee' is charged for listing items in a second category. bidorbuy may also run marketing promotions in which Sellers can participate by selecting specially designated Promotional categories. Different fees may apply to these categories.
