akdrv Posted July 3, 2005 Report Share Posted July 3, 2005 I've seen a few discussions about alternatives to eBay for coin sellers. Looks like Yahoo is doing something about it. Yahoo Auctions system looks good. They pioneered some of the original features which eBay picked up later. With some effort they could make a good dent in eBay's business. There aren't as many search and notification options. I tried to ask seller a question and the page timed out. I'll be watching for improvements and running a few trial auctions. Coin auctions currently listed: # United States (11172) # World (2760) # Ancient (52) Paper money: # United States (907) # World (770) http://auctions.yahoo.com/ ======================================================= 06/06/05 Changes to Yahoo! Auctions Yahoo! Auctions has changed its pricing to create a model that is free for all consumers listing items on our Auctions platform. We have eliminated all fees associated with Auctions listings, including listing fees and final value fees. Many users have been asking for this type of structure, and we are happy to provide it as a way to strengthen our partnership with the seller community and clearly demonstrate our commitment to our sellers' success. The new pricing model will go into effect Monday, June 6, 2005. This move to free listings was designed with the consumer in mind, as we are continually looking to offer the most relevant and useful products and services to our users. Over the years, we've achieved our objective of improving the quality of the site, making it easier for buyer and sellers to connect. This most recent move will make auctions more cost effective for both large and small sellers who wish to list items on Yahoo!, ultimately improving their margins.
