cryptothrift - Bitcoin and Litecoin Auction Site

UPDATED:

This is a newer thread with more details on the updated features cryptothrift | Bitcoin, Litecoin, Primecoin & Feathercoin Marketplace & Auctions

Hello fellow crypto enthusiasts,

cryptothrift.com is a Bitcoin BTC and Litecoin LTC auction website where users can buy, sell and auction items, goods and services for Bitcoin and Litecoin (more currencies to come).  It supports a built in Escrow service with a fee lower than any other Escrow service available on the market. It also provides a platform for other crypto project developers to hold fundraising and charity auctions to fund their crypto projects; those auctions will be listed and sold free of charge and will be accompanied with a blog page explaining the project and how others can donate and contribute to them. More about the project can be found here

Features:

    •   Bitcoin and Litecoin Support (more to come)
    •   Free listing
    •   Percentage base fee
    •   Split payments
    •   Built in Automated Escrow
    •   Automatic payment processing
    •   Advanced feedback system
    •   Fully integrated social networking
    •   Charity and Community support and fundraiser auctions
    •   Retina/Super HD display support
    •   A lot more features coming in the next update, stay tuned!


The website has been built with user friendliness in mind, we know most crypto users are already tech savvy, but we’re hoping our project alongside other crypto projects will help contribute towards pulling more users and a variety of people into using cryptocurrency in day to day online shopping. That’s why we’re offering item listings in Fiat (USD only for now) rather than crypto as we believe it’s still slightly easier for online shoppers to calculate figures in Fiat rather than crypto. In saying so, listing in cryptocurrencies will be added soon to accommodate every taste as well as other major fiat currencies.

So how it works? And if the listing is in Fiat, what are Bitcoin and Litecoin have to do with it?

Users will post items for sale in Fiat; the equivalent value of accepted crypto will be shown alongside the Fiat value calculated from the average value pulled through an API from major exchanges like bitcoinaverage and BTC-e. When the item is sold, the final value in crypto will be used to for payment. Yes, payments can be made in cryptocurrency and cryptocurrency only. The Fiat figures are there for reference only. Check our FAQ page for more info

Fees, charges and payments:

Listing on cryptothrift is completely free, you post your item and pay nothing until it’s sold, no sale no fee. When the item is sold, a percentage fee will be deducted from the final value of the auction upon closure. We’re using percentage fees as it’s fairer for sellers. Escrow fees will be added to the final value of the sale and will be paid by the buyer should they select the escrow option (if that the seller is offering Escrow). All payments whether with or without Escrow will be made to crptothrift’s wallets, fees will be deducted automatically and the final amount will be sent to the seller. Automatic payments have been put in place to eliminate human errors and speed up transactions. In case of an Escrow, the funds will be held in cryptothrift’s offline wallets until the buyer confirms the reception of the goods and the satisfaction of the sale, where funds will be released to the seller. You can find more information about fees, charges and other auction details here

Auction Duration and Details:

Auctions can be submitted as a normal auction and/or as “Buy Now” listing. Sellers select which country they are selling from and whether they provide international shipping (if applicable). They also need to select what condition the item they are selling is in (brand new, used, defected, etc..). Sellers select the category and price of the item as well as the format of the sale (auction or buy now) alongside the shipping, escrow, item description and other details. Sellers select the duration of the listing (10 days by default) and upload photos (3 photos free of charge) as well as any files in the case of downloadable goods. Items get posted

Buyers bid on the items until the auction duration ends, the highest bidder at the closure of the auction is the winner and is expected to pay for the item in full within 48 hours in the nominated cryptocurrency they choose provided that the seller accepts that currency. Sellers ship the items (registered post preferred) and mark them as shipped, buyers receive the items and mark them as received, funds get released to the seller in the case of Escrow and both buyers and seller can then choose to exchange feedback. The feedback system has been put in place to increase trust between parties and to save you money as well as a high rated seller might offer escrow, but the buyer can decide not to select it as their feedback and reputation is high enough to be trusted, thus saving themselves money. Please check our Terms and Conditions page before buying or selling on cryptothrift

Community Support and Auctions, what is it and how it works?

Community auctions (which will be introduced shortly) is the best feature of our website. It gives other crypto developer with give plans and low on funds the opportunity to raise funds for their projects by submitting a fundraising auction as well as an explanation page about their projects and how others can contribute to them on our blog. Those auctions will be free of charge and the full amount will be sent to the developer.
In order for us to control what gets posted in the “Community Auctions” and so others don’t abuse this feature, we will have this category locked where only site admins and moderators will be able to submit auctions in this category. So if you’ve got the plans, we’ve got the helping hand to lend you; all you need to do is submit your plans to us, we will check them and if they’re deemed to be for a worthy cause, we will let you know so you can submit your auctions details to us alongside the explanation page and we will post them on your behalf.

Safety and Privacy:

To makes sure your funds are secure, all funds are transferred immediately out of our wallets to the seller. When an Escrow is selected; funds will be stored in a cold wallet awaiting manual release. This step has to be done manually to increase security. Also, all Bitcoin and Litecoin addresses are a one off address, once the full payment is received, those addresses are no longer in use, and each item will have its own generated addresses.
Your privacy is as important to us as it is to you. We will not store any personal information on our website apart from those you decide to share or those which are essential for you to communicate with others like your username and location (if provided). Our multi verification system is being developed as we’re typing this message. To increase security and trust between users, we will offer a 2 step verification, a silver one which uses your online profiles and reputation to prove who you are and give you a score badge out of a 1,000, and a second gold verification which is done manually by you submitting your proof of ID and address. Both verifications will NOT give away any of your personal information, they are purely used to give you a badge and a score. Once your identity is confirmed, documents will be destroyed and no further details will be held in our hands. Our complete privacy policy details can be found on our Privacy Policy page.


Feedback and Contact:

cyptothrift is still in beta release, we might have missed/messed some tiny details, but we’ll be looking forward to your feedback, suggestions and complains, whatever you want to call them. That’s what matters the most to us as your feedback will help us serve you better and deliver a better user experience.
So, if you have questions or would like to discuss any ideas, send us an email through our contact us page or drops us a line on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus. We’ll be happy to hear form you and will do our best to respond ASAP and carefully address any issues, concerns and suggestions.

Hope to see you around everyone..
The cryptothrift team

Looks like this will be the alternative officially outside from this forum. Still kinda confused why bitmit would ever want to shut down.

This is already work in progress and it's a top priority too. We have about 22 new features coming between now and January. We've been taking every advise carefully and we are indeed working hard to get all the request finalized.
Thanks for being patience with us Smiley

Just a minor suggestion but under the "Home & Garden" selling category, there are further options that must be selected, yet none of them pertain to Gardening, they're all house-wares related.  Please include a garden option!  Thank you

Yes, I listed cannabis seeds and glassware, both of which are completely legal in most jurisdictions, including here in Canada where I am shipping the items from.

Please refer to this 2 FAQ's:

"X" drugs are legal in my country, why did they get suspended?

Why is my item listed as "Private" or Suspended?
