Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :) Please help by posting all issues here.

Recently seen a news item on some penny auctions and it was more to buyer beware when it comes to being charged for bids and still having to pay each bid made even if one does not get the product, is this to be true on your website as well or is this how they make their money?

I was curious about the same thing. That is why I was tryin to get the link to check it out. On a lot of the sites it costs a dollar per bid and there are a lot of fraud reports.

This is typically how penny auction sites make their money.

Thanks. At least make it a URL link...lol

http://www.pennyammo.com

It does look like you have to buy bids. So it it is more like a lottery than an auction. Right?

$25 bids for $13.50. You typically have to place a lot of bids to win so by the time you do win you have spent $40.00 on a $20.00 item.

I will just say I have no first hand experience with this site. The above is how the typical penny auction site works.

I saw on the news, that penny auctions were a rip off. but kudos to you if you can get enough ignoramasses, and retards to waste their money on your site. I would love to be able to work at home and make money or travel and make money.
