What if people started buying and selling bitcoins on biddingpond?

So you could add your bank account details and get direct transfers to keep the scammers away?

Actually mine ships globally (something did not work properly when I was activating the auction) . I tried to edit it and it did not work neither.
But overall you are right, international shipping is key , especially with the current low user base.
Does it default to USA shipping? That might be why I see most options not having global shipping.

When people make a reserve it can be impossible to win.

I bid high on something, but my bid only goes up to what it needs above the other bidder. This means I can't bid up to the reserve amount.

Biddingpond.com will have unscheduled down time from 6:30AM - 8:00PM Today, November 08, 2010.  There has been a recent surge in bandwidth consumption (either DDOS or some other type) as well as some attacks on the site. The site will be shut down while I investigate the situation.  Any listings that are scheduled to end today will be extended by 24 hours.  Thank you for your time and patience.

Biddingpond.com is back up and running. We were experiencing what seems to have been a DDOS from somewhere in South East Asia(Over 5 GB/bandwidth in 2 hours). I had to block traffic from a large IP mask. If for some reason you are located in South East Asia and are affected by this please send me an e-mail at contact@biddingpond.com with your IP address and I will unblock it.

To all auctions that were affected:
The auction has been extended by 24 hours. I am sorry for the inconvenience.


Thank You,
BiddingPond.com

Have you added BTC payment methods yet?

I owe biddingpond.com a couple BTC for listings w/ buy now, but the site said something like

     "Use one of the following payment methods to pay your account:"
     [blank list, end of page]

I have also started to integrate captchas into the website before placing a bid to reduce(eliminate?) automated bid sniping.

I am much opposed to the captchas. Sniping is not a problem, you already have an automated bidder in place.

Last night I set email preferences to one cumulative email once a day and over night I received 29 emails saying my auction ended yesterday. Is this a known issue?

Please contact me via PM or e-mail concerning this. What are you receiving e-mails about? You should not receive 29 e-mails not matter what.

Biddingpond.com is completing its move to a new web host. Periodic downtime is to be expected throughout the day. If any Auctions are affected they will be extended by the time that the site is down.

Biddingpond.com has completed its move to a new web host. No auctions were due to close during the move and everything seems to have gone smoothly.

If you experience any errors ...

hi, is your email delivery up&running?
my "confirmation e-mail" never arrived

Neither did mine.

Do not waste your time debating whether Bitcoin can work. It does work.

"Early adopters will profit" is not a sufficient condition to classify something as a pyramid or Ponzi scheme. If it was, Apple and Microsoft stock are Ponzi schemes.

There is no such thing as "market manipulation." There is only buying and selling.

Investigating the situation. It's probably because of the server move. I will update this post when it is corrected. In the meantime please e-mail me your username at contact@biddingpond.com and I will manually activate your account.

Mine wasn't a new account, I just didn't get the email confirming an auction I had posted. Also, I had selected that I wanted to pay 1 BTC to have my auction bolded, which didn't happen, I presume because payment for that would have been arranged in the email.

Auction features are selected before bid purchasing. E-mail is down as per notice on the website. I have a new BiddingPond version in the works with a multitude of minor bug fixes on the way. Also, I have included a couple of extra features that will make bidding, listing and selling easier. I also have added the ability to sell items "Buy it now" with no bidding option.

Investigating the situation.

did you deactivated the email confirmations of new accounts?
i've created account 1GOCH0
1) email pending
2) could login

Yes,
E-mail confirmations have been disabled. The new site(coming real soon) will not require a valid e-mail account to register. I have also added a couple of new features. E-mail updates will be turned back on when the new site comes online(auction outbid notices, new listing notices,messaged,etc.).
