Auctions or trade system: which one do you prefer

Discussion in 'Virtual Pets Chat' started by cpvr, Jul 27, 2012.

  1. I know some pet sites have an auctions systems and/or a trades system, but which feature do you prefer using the most? Do you like auctions better than trading systems, or do you prefer trading systems? It's always nice to see how much a pet or item could fetch on an auction, but you sometimes can get more for your buck doing a trade for a particular pet or item, so which one you use the most?

  2. I prefer Trades. If I wanted to bid on something I'd do it on ebay.
  3. It's called being an auction sniper though. I used to do that a lot on Neopets when I played. See good items selling for cheap and snatching them, selling them for the right value in my shop.
  4. Well we've got that and a load of other discussions going on in the team right now, so even if I don't like them we might still have them.
  5. I like a world marketplace where selling players list items at a price of their choice, there is no sales fee, and buying players are automatically shown the cheapest few available of their selected item, with the option to continue looking at more expensive ones. Auctions are ok to have in addition to this (again, provided there is no sales fee) but auctions should never be the only option. Also, the sales interface should remember what the player last sold an item for and auto-fill that information to facilitate the player listing more of the same item. The player should not be able to list arbitrary-sized bundles of items (like a bundle of 6 fish). If an item is likely to be sold in bulk it should have official sizes it can be sold in (10, 100, and 1000 probably). Search results should not mix different bundle sizes together, but categorize them neatly to aid buyers.
