  2. Made another sale to Shawn. Great as always!
  3. Ladies and Gentlemen! We have a winner! (2 winners actually) The winner of the prize furnished by oldgames (me) is cremorecs! Cremorecs, I have sent you a GameGavel message. Let me know what you're interested in. The winner of the prize furnished by Mike (GameGavel) is synbiosfan. Synbiosfan, Mike will communicate with you. Congratulations to both winners!
  4. Last Call! If you've sold $50.00 worth on GameGavel during March and haven't messaged me yet, please do so. I'll be sending the final list to Mike on Monday April 4th and the drawing will take place soon after that. Winners will be notified by email. Good Luck, everyone!
  5. Didn't realize that. I hadn't checked it for a long time. I'm still getting a good amount of views and sales and I always thought that was part of the reason.
  6. This is a great game! Anyone with a Supercharger who doesn't have it yet should check it out.
  7. I use the 'select all' when relisting. I've never had a problem. It's at the top of the page when you display your expired listings. I do agree that it would be handy to have some type of store set up that was a list till sold arrangement. Overall, I am very happy with GameGavel. All the customers I've had are very good and I find the interface to be very easy once you're used to it. Different people like different things, though. I have been using fixed price listings almost exclusively. It works out for me because most of what I sell has a pretty well defined market price. My customers seem to like it because they don't have to wait to see if they win. Mike does a feed to Google Base daily, but I recommend that sellers publicize their listings here and other forums also. I think the site will continue to grow and everyone who gives it a chance by listing and buying there will help that process.
  8. When I say it doesn't make sense, I mean the buyer being out the return shipping on a damaged item. It does make sense to me that the item should be returned if the seller wants it, but they should foot the bill and Ebay / Paypal should make it easy for them to do so.
  9. This is Ebay / PayPal's policy and you're absolutely right, it does not make sense. IMO, a good seller would pay for the return shipping on an item damaged in shipping or one returned because it didn't match the description. Ebay doesn't force them to, though and in fact makes it harder to do. The seller has to issue the refund, then do a seperate PayPal transaction for the return shipping. The refund can't be more than the original payment. It would be so easy for them to allow this and then charge the refunder the appropriate fee on the overage.
  10. Entries are coming in! Still time to do 7 day listings before the end of the contest!
  11. One thing to be aware of on the comparison tool that I posted the link to. I didn't notice this at first, but it rounds the fees up to the next dollar. For low numbers of lisings and/or low final price items, the percentages won't be very reliable. Some on the Seller Central forum are asking the guy who came up with this to include the decimals so that it will be more reliable. Hope he does so.
  12. Here's a link to a tool that compares the current fees to the new ones. Just plug in some numbers with about how much you list and what the average shipping charges are and see what the effect will be. Fee comparison tool
  13. Almost 2 weeks left to list, sell, and qualify. Good luck everyone!
  14. I can think of better ways to eliminate those who practiced fee avoidance. It was very easy for me to avoid buying from them. No sales = no incentive to break the rules. All Ebay's move does is raise fees on all sellers who didn't break the rules. When I was in school the good teachers would identify the students responsible for problems and punish them. The very good teachers would identify the students responsible for problems and try to reach out to them and spark an interest in learning. Only the very worst teachers punished the whole class. IMO, Ebay's move has nothing to do with wanting lower shipping prices for buyers. They only want to increase their fees.
  15. Just when I thought they couldn't get any greedier. Ebay 2011 Spring Seller Changes Special Discussion Just one more reason to give GameGavel a try. (O.K. Shameless plug, but seriously this will just about make it totally impractical to sell small lots or single games on GreedBay.)
  16. Outstanding, purduecrum! Just message me here, on Gamegavel, or on Gamegavel forums once you get to $50 in sales. Dave
  17. Still plenty of time to list, sell, and qualify! Good luck, everyone!
  18. Thanks, Rick! Look forward to seeing what you add to your listings!
  19. Don't forget! Contest starts tomorrow! Hope to see lots of new listings!
  20. Another great anniversary contest brought to you by GameGavel and oldgames! Let’s celebrate GameGavel’s 3rd Anniversary With a Contest! Contest: During March 2011, sell $50 or more of items on GameGavel and have your name entered in a drawing to win $50 credit toward a GameGavel purchase. 2 prizes will be awarded. One is provided by seller oldgames (me) good for $50 toward purchases from seller oldgames. Another prize will be provided by Mike at GameGavel and will be good for $50 toward any purchase from SoCalMike or biggamehunter. If at any time during March 2011, the number on listings on GameGavel exceeds 5,000 each prize sponsor will award a second identical prize so that there would be a total of 4 winners instead of 2. Rules: 1. All sales, auction or fixed price are eligible to count toward the contest. 2. Mike, the GameGavel owner, will determine eligibility. Once you have sold $50 worth, simply message me (oldgames) and I will send the list of qualifiers to Mike. He will verify your sales total and enter your name in the drawing. 3. Mike will also do the drawing for the winners. 4. One entry per member. 5. Prize must be used within 30 days of the announcement of winners 6. Prize must be used on a single order. Multiple items may be purchased on this single order. FAQ: Do relists count? Yes, any sale during March 2011 will count toward your $50. If I sell $100 worth do I get 2 entries? No, each member that qualifies will be entered one time. All members who qualify will have an equal chance to win. Why is this based on sales rather than # of listings? This is to encourage listings at reasonable prices that will generate sales. As traffic to the site grows, having a good variety of reasonably priced items is very important. . Why is the prize only good for purchases from these sellers? We’re providing the prizes, so this is the best way for us to handle the prize. Who is eligible? Any GameGavel member in good standing (fees paid up to date) with the following exclusions: Contest Sponsor: (oldgames) and GameGavel Owner: (gamegavel, biggamehunter, socalmike). I want to give GameGavel a try, but I’m not a member yet. How do I sign up? Go to www.gamegavel.com and click on the Register link at the top of the page. In order to sell, you’ll need to have a credit card on file. What items can I list for this contest? Any items permitted on GameGavel are eligible to count toward this contest. If I win, what can I buy with my prize? For the prize provided by oldgames you can choose any items listed by oldgames. There are no exclusions. You may apply the prize to multiple items, but they must all be purchased on a single order within 30 days of contest end. For the prize provided by GameGavel, you may choose any items listed by SoCalMike or biggamehunter. How do I claim my prize if I win? Once you have sold $50 or more during March 2011, simply message me and I will send your entry to Mike to verify your sales total and enter your name in the drawing. Winners will be notified during the first 2 weeks of April 2011. Once this notification is sent, you will have 30 days to place a GameGavel order with the designated contest sponsor totaling $50.00 or more (including shipping charges). The $50.00 will be deducted from the total of the invoice for this order and you will pay the balance, if any, by either PayPal or US postal service money order as with any other purchase.
  21. Lots of NES and SNES games. Prices have been reduced, most by about 10% just in time for Christmas! The link to my GameGavel listings is in my signature. Dave
  22. Another great buy from Chris for several boxed NES games! Great, friendly, honest trader.
  23. I bought several boxed and loose NES games from Chris and he is a great person to deal with. Everything arrived in great shape, just as described. Will definitely buy more when my spending money builds back up!
