Why Should I pay to join when most other auction sites are free to join?
Our one-off fee of £2.00 ($3.50 USD) reflects the actual administrative costs of validating user details to create and maintain a secure environment in which buyers and sellers can trust that goods will be delivered, items paid for, and that time wasting frivolous bids will not be made.
Our validation process allows us to keep out the majority of pranksters & fraudsters who give false contact details. That way you know you will end up dealing with real people.
Some may say, "...but I am only going to be a buyer and I don't need to pay £2 for the privilage of buying something!
Well, next time your bid is pushed up several pounds on another auction site by a shill-bidder (the seller bidding against you under an alias) you may think that paying a nominal £2 fee which eliminates this practice very good value!
Some users feel they would rather join a site where there have been no checks or verification of the other users they end up dealing with. Whilst that logic does appear perverse to those of us who know and monitor the tricks people try to get up to, the final decision is yours!
And for Sellers .......
