New Pricebenders auction types
1. JUNIOR AUCTIONS
Have you ever felt intimidated by some of Pricebenders' "heavy hitter" bidders? You know the people we are talking about--the ones that seem to win and win and win again and again. Well, we've just created a new space just for you!
Meet Pricebenders' new "Junior" auctions! Note that Junior auctions will feature all the same, great products as everywhere else, but with no heavy hitters allowed! That is, anyone who has won 10 or more auctions is blocked from participating.
Yes, if you consider yourself a penny auction beginner, this is the place for you. By participating in our new Junior auctions, you'll always be bidding against your peers...instead of the heavy hitters!
By the way, "Junior" is not necessarily our final name. If you have an idea for a better name, please use our suggestion box and let us know. If we choose your idea, you will be named in a future announcement. Plus, how awesome will it be to be able to say you helped shape one of the Internet's coolest sites?!
Frequently asked questions:
Q: I've won less than 10 auctions. Does this mean that I can only bid in Junior auctions?
A: No, you can bid in ALL auctions, but members that have won 10 or more cannot bid in Junior auctions.
Q: How many Junior auctions are planned?
A: We plan to make 20 to 30% of all auctions Junior auctions. If they are well received, we will expand to an even higher percentage.
Q: How do I determine which auctions are Junior auctions?
A: just go to our auction schedule here -- http://www.tripleclicks.com/indexAuctions.php -- and look for the auctions designated with "J" as their type. Use our free reminder service to receive an alert when the auctions you are interested in start.
Q: I'm one of those so-called heavy hitters. It seems that you will be significantly limiting me with these new Junior auctions.
A: With more than 1500 total auctions a month now, you should still find plenty of auctions to participate in (and more expansion is planned). Plus, you will be happy to know that, effective immediately, we have increased your wins limit. You may now win up to four Pricebenders auctions per week, and up to 12 each month. And we have also added another new auction type that gives you even more auctions to participate in – – see following info on our new NO LIMIT auctions.
2. NO LIMIT AUCTIONS
No Limit auctions are almost the polar opposite of the new Junior auctions. As the name suggests, No Limit auctions are auctions where it doesn't matter how many times you have won. If you have reached your win limit for the week or month and you still want to bid on auctions, No Limit auctions are for you.
Frequently asked questions:
Q: Can anyone participate in the No Limit auctions?
A: Yes, but take note that Pricebenders' biggest bidders will likely be found here.
Q: How many No Limit auctions will be held each week?
A: Not many, likely less than one or two a day to start. And as with all new auctions types we introduce, these are only being tested. If they are not well received, we will not continue offering them.
Q: How do I determine which auctions are No Limit auctions?
A: just go to our auction schedule here -- http://www.tripleclicks.com/indexAuctions.php -- and look for the auctions designated with "U" as their type. Use our free reminder service to receive an alert when the auctions you are interested in start.
