Important Announcement - Community Forum Upgrade

Good afternoon members,

We are very pleased to advise that the community section of the site will be upgraded to a new platform from next Monday, September 23.

The new platform showcases a modern, clean user interface aimed at improving user experience and making it easier for our members to communicate in an open forum. Importantly, the new platform has a number of SEO (search engine optimisation) benefits and will drive more traffic to quicksales.com.au. You will also find quite a few features and enhancements that you will just have to explore from next week... but we hope you like the new look and feel.

As always, any feedback is welcome to customercare@quicksales.com.au.

Happy buying and selling (and have a great weekend),

The quicksales team.

Important Announcement - Upcoming Site Changes

Good afternoon members,

We have some important updates that we would like to share with our members regarding Express Lister, the  introduction of our Bugcatcher program and a new way to navigate to the quicksales community pages.

Express Lister

We are very excited to advise that a new version of Express Lister will be released next week (w/c 8/7) which addresses compatibility issues encountered by some members as well as a number of key feature enhancements. We will advise our sellers of the download as soon as it is available via a separate announcement.

Bugcatcher Program

We've had tremendous support from our community with respect to members sending through bugs they have come across whilst using the site and we would like to encourage you all to continue to do so - in fact every Friday at midday our Customer Care and Quality Assurance team will select the best bugcatcher of the week and the lucky recipient will receive a quicksales merchandise pack. All you have to do to be in the running is send an email to bugcatcher@quicksales.com.au (make sure you include a link or steps as to how we can reproduce the bug) and winners will be notified each week via the announcements section. In the event that more than one person identifies the selected bug, the first member to do so will be deemed the winner.

Community Pages

Finally, from next Monday morning (July 8) the link to 'Community' in the top right hand corner of the homepage will move to a drop-down under 'Help', along with direct links to Frequently Asked Questions and our Safe Trading Centre. The reason for the move is so that we can make room for our upcoming quicksales Blog which will be used to provide site updates, helpful buying and selling hints and a range of handy information for all our members and the quicksales community.

As per always, should you have any queries please direct them to customercare@quicksales.com.au and we hope that you all have a fantastic weekend.

Happy buying and selling from the quicksales team.

New listing process - more ways to buy and sell than anywhere else

Good morning members,

We are very pleased to advise that the new listing process for quicksales will be rolled out later today. The new process is truly world class and supports our recent move to 100% free to sell.

When placing an ad on quicksales, sellers will no longer need to choose between either a classified or transactional (buy now/auction) listing - there is simply one type of ad and it is up to the seller to decide the contact details and functionality included on their listing.  

At quicksales we simply want to help you sell your stuff and we believe selling online should be 100% free. As such - and a first for the Australian online shopping and classifieds industry - sellers can opt to have their phone number on a listing as well as a buy now button or a bid button. The more ways you include on your ads for buyers to get in touch with you, the better chance you have of selling.

Another great feature that is introduced with the new listing process is the elimination of item duration for all listings (excluding auction, which provide the option for 3, 7 or 14 day duration). This means that items for sale on quicksales are list until sold and are live until the item is either sold or cancelled by the seller. This new feature is particularly useful for sellers with high inventory and means you spend less time having to worry about managing listings and more time selling! This feature is available for all sellers (not just qshops) and the best this is, with no listing or re-listing fees on quicksales whatsoever you don't need to worry about accumulating insertion costs. 

Please note that make an offer is still supported and we are in the process of incorporating the feedback and suggestions we've received from our users to date.

As per usual, please send through any comments or queries regarding the new process to customercare@quicksales.com.au. We appreciate your support and patience during the next 24-48 hours as the changes are deployed and hope you are as excited about the new listing process as we are.

Kind regards,

The quicksales team.

Abolishment of fees - quicksales is 100% FREE to sell

Good morning members,

We are very pleased to announce that from today quicksales is 100% FREE to sell. That's right, no final value fees whatsoever irrespective of what you are selling or the category in which you sell. 100% free to sell across the board - no exclusions, no disclaimers and no question that quicksales is the best value marketplace in Australia, if not the world!

As other websites and suppliers put their prices up, quicksales is not just putting prices down but abolishing them all together.

The 2% final value fee previously in place has been removed and quicksales is now proudly a 100% free marketplace. Whether choosing to list as a classified, auction or buy now, from today you will no longer pay a final value fee meaning 100% of the proceeds from the sale go directly into your pocket. 

Any credit currently on your selling account can be utilised for either listing upgrades or be put towards a qshop package.

On the day that a certain other website is increasing its fees to what we believe is an absolutely ludicrous percentage we are thrilled to announce our new final value fee is 0% - it doesn't get much better value than that!

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via customercare@quicksales.com.au and as always, happy buying and (completely FREE) selling from the quicksales team!

Upcoming changes to item details page

Good afternoon members,

The team is very excited to announce that mid next week we will be deploying the 'new look' quicksales details page across all categories. The new details page is a significant step forward for the site and has been designed to accommodate the shift we have all witnessed towards mobile devices as opposed to desktop. Similarly, we have introduced a number of new features that are designed to keep people browsing within quicksales rather than looking at an item and then simply either buying or navigating away. 

The focus of the new page is squarely at making a 'hero' of your item for sale - in particular the images/photos of that item. Our research has shown a very clear correlation between the number and quality of images that a seller has included with their listing and the resultant sale that takes place. In short, pictures tell a thousand words and we've designed the page with this in mind.

Secondly, we've made it even easier for buyers to get in touch with sellers, with a section on the right hand side of the page dedicated to assisting buyers call, email, bid, buy or make an offer. Rest assured there will be absolutely no confusion with buyers as to how they interact with sellers and purchase on quicksales.

Further to the above, the details page will feature a raft of new functionality, including enhanced sharing options, a location map and other items for sale that the buyer may be interested in. 

We anticipate that the new page will roll live mid next week and we appreciate your support and patience at this time. Please feel free to contact us should you have any queries or if you have any feedback regarding the new page when it is deployed via our customercare@quicksales.com.au email address.

Have a great weekend and as always, happy buying and selling on quicksales.

Regards,
The quicksales team.

Good afternoon members,

Please be advised that we are in the process of updating the advanced quicksales image uploader to include a range of new features and enhanced compatibility. The latest version of the tool will be HTML5/Flash based rather than relying on a Java applet to be installed prior to use.

Kind regards,

Upcoming changes to checkout process

Good afternoon members,

We are pleased to advise that we are soon to deploy some improvements to the checkout process based on both member feedback and a range of enhancements we have identified. A summary of the changes as follows:

User Interface & Page Layout
Buyers are no longer able to edit the insurance, discount or postage fields - they are now automatically calculated.
Improved layout for checkout items, clearly defining purchased items, postage and insurance costs.
Selection of payment type changed to an easy-to-use dropdown.
Seller instructions are displayed in a tabbed format for better readability.

Postage
Checkout now calculates for multiple quantities and items, based upon the item configuration (e.g. if four of a particular item has been bought with $10 flat postage per item, a charge of $40 will be reflected at checkout).
Sellers are able to cater for combined postage by sending an invoice.
Buyers now have the option of selecting pick up (provided all items offer pick up as an option on checkout).

Proof of Delivery/Registered Post
Sellers are able to indicate the charge per item per quantity for providing Registered Post/Proof of Delivery.
This price is calculated on checkout if selected by user.
Sellers can configure these options inside Seller preferences.

Insurance
Insurance is calculated based on the postage method of items. For Temando users/items this is calculated by Temando otherwise it is calculated using Australia Post insurance (Registered Post + $1.50 per $100 over $100 up to $5000).

These changes will be live onsite in coming days and as always we welcome your feedback via customercare@quicksales.com.au.

Kind regards,
The quicksales Team.

Introducing our new quicksales advertising campaign!

Life's a little easier with some extra Cash around.

We are very excited to announce that we have just launched our first fully integrated brand campaign. The campaign stars Aussie tennis legend Pat Cash, and includes National television (free-to-air and Pay TV), outdoor, online and 
social media placements.

The advertising message is that life is a little easier with some extra 'Cash' around, and quicksales.com.au is the best place to sell your stuff. Pat Cash is the ideal icon to build the campaign around, not only because of his name, but because it puts an Aussie stamp on quicksales that is hard to ignore. We are Australian owned and proud of it, and using Pat Cash reinforces that quicksales.com.au is an all-Australian classifieds and auction alternative.

Check out our new TV commercial
here and watch this space for more exciting news as to where you will see this campaign in coming weeks and months. This is just the start of a very big 12 months ahead for quicksales - stay tuned!

Upcoming site changes

Good morning members,

A brief announcement to advise that in coming days you will notice some exciting changes to quicksales. In particular, we have been working to streamline the listing process and improve the UI and layout of our category pages. 

One change in particular that we would like to highlight is that 'unfinished listings' will be moved from its current page to the selling tab within 'my quicksales' so that members are able to view all listings (whether selling, sold, ended classified, unfinished etc.) in the one place.

Should you have any queries or feedback regarding these site improvements then please feel free to send your comments through to customercare@quicksales.com.au. 

As always, happy buying and selling from the quicksales team.

Happy New Year!

 Yet another successful year has passed for quicksales. We can all look forward to the exciting road ahead, whilst quietly reflecting on some of those special highlights of 2011...
  • In February, OZtion.com.au changed its name to quicksales.com.au and along with that came the new and improved quicksales.com.au logo we all love today! 
  • In April, in conjunction with PayPal we launched our massive quicksales $50,000 shopping spree which led to 500 lucky winners shopping on us! 
  • In July, we announced the commencement of all quicksales BuyNow items being indexed on Google Shopping.
  • In August, sellers were awarded the FREE re-list of all their items! 
  • In September, we proudly began supporting Danielles-Dream a charity account fundraising for the Children's Cancer Institute of Australia (CCIA) and continue to do so. 
  • In October, we were proud to be the first Australian marketplace to offer our sellers the ability to accept credit card payment via the secure payment gateways, eWay, SecurePay and Payflow Pro, in real time. 
  • In November, we teamed up with Victa to bring you the Victa 8 millionth mower charity auction which raised a whopping $6,301.00. All proceeds going to the RSPCA! 
  • In November, we also announced the release of some exciting, new radio ads for quicksales.com.au to the market. 
  • And in December, last but not least, we brought to you the Refer and Win promotion which allows you the chance to go into the draw to win a $100 VISA Gift Card for any one you refer!
We would like to thank you for your continued support to date and wholeheartedly wish you all the best for the New Year 2012!

List until sold - For sellers

Attention all quicksales Sellers,

On Tuesday 20th September at 3:00pm AEST we are making some small changes around the listing duration of your items for sale.  

From 3:00pm 20/09/2011, all new listings will be listed until sold if "Auto-Relist" is selected.


Items listed prior to this date are subject to the following;

  • If you have 10 or less items for sale* and your items have been selected to "Auto Relist", your items will drop into your "Unsold" list as per usual 60 days after they were listed.  Any items you add with "Auto-Relist" selected after this date, will be listed until sold.
  • If you have more than 10 items for sale* and your items have been selected to "Auto Relist", your items will be automatically listed until sold.

How do I remove my items for sale?

  • Instead of your items expiring after 60 days, you will now need to indicate that the item is no longer for sale.  To do this simply go to My quicksales > My Selling > Selling and select ‘End it Now’ from the Action link.  To withdraw multiple items, select the items you want to withdraw (tick the boxes to the left of the items) and choose ‘Withdraw Items’ from the Bulk Action list.

Happy Selling.

The quicksales team

*Items for sale has been calculated by seller as at 12:30pm Tuesday 20th September AEST

Exciting news for sellers - you can now re-list your items for FREE*!

We are pleased to announce that as of 10am (AEST) 2nd August 2011 we will be waiving all "Relist ‘Unsold’ Item" and "Auto-Relist Until Sold" (ARUS) fees. As part of this change, the ‘Auto-Relist Until Sold’ option will only be available to sellers with a quicksales vShop.


What does this mean for me?

  • Instead of paying to re-list your items every 60 days, you can now manually re-list any of your unsold items from your “Unsold” list for free*.
  • If you have a quicksales vShop, you can select your items to “Auto-Relist Until Sold” (ARUS). This means your items will remain for sale until they are sold or you cancel your ad. So make sure all of your items have ARUS selected - it’s free*.
  • If you do not have a quicksales vShop and you currently have your items selected to ARUS, they will continue to ARUS until the 14th August. After this time, you can still manually re-list them from your “Unsold” list for free*.


Want to use ARUS but don’t have a vShop?

Sign up for a quicksales vShop from only $5 per month and receive the following benefits;

  • Auto-Relist Until Sold (ARUS) for all of your vShop items.
  • vShop branding and customisation.
  • Shopfront customisation.
  • Multiple vShop shopping - Buyers can add items to their Cart from one or more vShops in a single process.
  • Multiple checkout - Buyers can complete checkout from different vShops from one page.
  • Save Cart - Shopping carts can also be saved by shoppers and retrieved at a later time, if they need to interrupt their purchase.
  • Category customisation - 3 levels of unlimited custom categories can be created.
  • Multiple departments - Ability to list vShop in 2 vShop departments (additional fee applies).
  • Newly listed items shown on front page of vShop.
  • Managed content - About Us, Help & Guidelines, News, Policies.
  • Wishlist - Shoppers can add items across multiple vShops to their Wishlist and email it to themselves or a friend.
  • There is no charge to list standard listings and the sale fees are the same as regular listings. 


* Free relist applies to standard ads only (not promotional featured).

Change to item details page

We would like to advise that when searching from the core quicksales site all item detail pages will now have a consistent appearance.  This means, when browsing from the core site buyers will be able to view the same design format, regardless of whether the item is attached to a vShop.  This initiative was brought about to encourage site familiarisation in appearance, design and navigation.  Any specialised template content within the item description section will remain as normal.

Items attached to a vShop will now include additional vShop related content within the Seller Information panel on the right hand side, such as the sellers logo and direct links to the vShop home page, similar items and all items.  Naturally, items browsed directly from within a seller's vShop, will be presented in the existing vShop theme.

We feel that a consistent appearance when browsing within the core site will improve site familiarisation.

Kind regards,
The quicksales team

Protect yourself from spoof (fake) emails

We have recently received a few reports of spoof emails going around, we would like to remind our members of what they are and how to protect yourself from them.

Spoof emails (sometimes called phishing) and web sites associated with them attempt to steal the identity of members of popular web sites such as quicksales. The email pretends to be from a well known company. People who send spoof emails ask recipients to reply or fill in details on a web site with personal information - such as your credit card number or a username and password - to commit identity theft.  quicksales will never ask you to enter your credit card details or to complete personal details via an email form.

A common method is to send a fake email that appears genuine, asking the recipient to click a link and update or verify their account details. Please keep in mind that any genuine email sent from the quicksales team is also delivered to your quicksales message inbox.

Click here to learn how you can protect yourself from spoof.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact us.

Watermarks on images

Item images displayed in listing detail pages will have a quicksales watermark displayed in one of the corners of the image. This will help sellers enjoy the added benefit of increased protection against copyright infringement. This will be rolled out gradually across the site over the coming weeks, starting with vShop items.

Watermark double ups: Sincere apologies to sellers that experienced watermarks being shown more than once on some images. The issue was isolated to sellers that used Sell Similar with an item that had a watermark before the 3rd of March. We rectified this early Thursday morning (3rd March). Affected images will need to be uploaded again to remove the additional permanent watermark/s.

Welcome to quicksales.com.au!

We are extremely excited to announce the rebranding of OZtion to quicksales.com.au went live this morning.

Along with many changes and upgrades to the old OZtion site, came the new and improved quicksales.com.au logo which we hope you like as much as we do.

Rest assured that how the site functions in relation to buying and selling an item, and managing your listings has not changed.  All existing OZtion links have also been maintained and are simply redirected to quicksales.com.au when clicked on, ensuring no interruption in processes for our valuable buyers and sellers - it's business as usual!

In other exciting news, the carsales network navigation link will change over from General Classifieds to Shopping & Auctions on Wednesday 9th February, further promoting this fantastic new site.

We remain committed to providing Australians with a safer, affordable and more convenient way to buy or sell and we thank you for your continued support. We look forward to a successful new era of buying and selling.

Kind regards,

Help us name the new carsales network link to quicksales

Currently across the carsales network header there are links to all the relevant sites for example: cars, bikes, boats, caravans etc (see screenshot below). As part of the OZtion brand name change to quicksales we have an opportunity to name our own link that will be directed to quicksales replacing the soon to be ‘old’ General Classifieds link, here are the 3 options to choose from:
  • Shopping – Informs the carsales network consumers that there is an additional link to buy and sell from.
  • Shopping & Auctions – Clearly articulates what is offered on the site where consumers can buy and sell and engage in Auctions.
  • Everything Else – A term that is intended to highlight that it is all things other than cars, bikes boats etc.
 Before we make a final decision we would like to hear from you what you would like to see appear.

OZtion.com.au is about to undergo an exciting transformation

OZtion Logo

Dear Member,

Last year you were invited to take part in a user survey where it was identified that we needed to address the OZtion name so that it was easier to pronounce and promote.  After immense consideration we are changing the name of quicksales.com.au to quicksales.com.au, which will go live on the 7th February, 2011.  Please rest assured that the site functionality you've come to know and love will not be changing, this is simply a name change.

Why quicksales.com.au?
This new name is not only representative of what OZtion does, but is easy to pronounce and is consistent with the carsales family of 'sales' brands, of which OZtion is a valuable member.
More importantly, this name change allows us to take advantage of the carsales network customer base of over 4.3million* unique users every month and millions of page impressions daily.  The carsales network promotion will be seen as early as our launch through links across the carsales sites as well as within banner and newsletter promotion including carsales.com.au, bikesales.com.au and boatsales.com.au to name a few.

What happens to OZtion?
The OZtion heritage remains important to us and will continue to play an important role as the site will be identified as quicksales.com.au - Powered by OZtion.  All of the OZtion features and functionality will be maintained.  All existing OZtion links will also be maintained and simply redirected to quicksales.com.au when clicked, to ensure there is no loss of sales for our valuable sellers with the name change. 

The Road Ahead
Since OZtion's move to carsales, we have experienced tremendous support with additional business development, design, marketing and site development resources.  We are 100% committed to delivering you more buyers and sellers than ever before, and we strongly believe that this name change will further help our efforts.  Moving forward, you will now receive all communications from quicksales.com.au, formerly OZtion.  As mentioned earlier, we are still the same team and website, we just have a new name. 

We look forward to the exciting times ahead with you in 2011 and should you have any queries at all please don't hesitate to contact our customer service team.

Happy Buying and Selling,

The all new quicksales team

For it's the day we come together and celebrate our 'Australia Day'


Wishing you and your family a wonderful Australia Day!

OZtion gets a transformation makeover!

We are very excited to announce that OZtion will be going live with a new look website this afternoon. This is the most significant design change to OZtion since the site was first launched, way back in 2005.

The redesigned website has incorporated many of your ideas and comments collected from our user survey that we conducted in September. Click here for a sneak preview of what the new site will look like and please do let us know what you think of the design! It is important to note that even though we have made changes to the look and feel of the site, how the site functions in relation to buying, selling and managing your listings will stay the same.

We anticipate going live with the new site at approximately 2:30pm AEST today. During this release you may experience service delays for up to 1 minute and we'd like to apologise in advance for this - however it is better to roll out site changes during these hours so we can fix any potential hiccups as soon as possible.

Adult Category

OZtion has made the decision to remove its Adult category, effective 21 January 2011.

Immense consideration has been afforded to this move and as a result, we will no longer be accepting any explicit Adult related items from 20 December 2010. Any current items listed within this category will remain on the site until the Adult category is removed.

Some Adult items may be appropriately suited to other categories on OZtion. Naturally, we will work with existing Adult sellers to assist them with determining which items are deemed to be appropriate as well as to assist with the relocation of those items. For example, tasteful lingerie may be displayed within the lingerie category under 'Clothing and Accessories'.

Explicit or pornographic pictures or content will no longer be accepted on OZtion.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all Adult sellers for their support of OZtion and sincerely wish them all the best with their future endeavours.

We're Listening - Thanks for your feedback

Thank you to the OZtion community for getting behind our survey. Your response was fantastic with over 1600 surveys completed!

We are now working through a thorough review of the site. Our improvements will be based on your feedback and rolled out gradually rather than all at once. So you know, there were six main themes that emerged from your responses, all of which we are looking to address.
  1. More Advertising: More promotion that will lead to more buyers and sellers
  2. Improved Quality of Inventory: A site stocked with more quality items for buyers
  3. Seller Fees: Fees that encourage sellers to advertise more items
  4. Name Change: Look at the OZtion name so that it is easier to promote
  5. Improved Search Functionality: Find what you want faster, including a more advanced Category and Tag structure
  6. General Site Improvements: Look at redesigning the site to give it a more modern feel
We have many great initiatives on the way, and we are working hard at putting together a plan that will deliver ongoing success for you, our buyers and sellers.

We'll be sure to keep you posted on any updates as they become available and rest assured we are working hard to deliver you, our buyers and sellers, ongoing success.

Kind regards,

From the teams at OZtion and carsales

OZtion enters a new and exciting chapter with carsales.com Ltd

Dear valued OZtion members,

I'm pleased to announce today that carsales.com Ltd and Jumbuck Entertainment have signed a Sale of Business agreement in relation to the acquisition of the assets of OZtion. This is an exciting step for our business and will help OZtion and our community to grow and prosper.

carsales.com Ltd was listed on the ASX in 2009 and is the largest online automotive, motorcycle and marine classifieds business in Australia. Its network of sites attracts more Australians interested in buying or selling cars, motorcycles and boats than any other classified group of websites.

In fact, carsales' network of sites attracted more than 4.7m unique visitors in July. As members and customers of OZtion this is exciting, as we expect access to this traffic to significantly grow your opportunities to buy and sell.

carsales was attracted to OZtion because of its strong community, wide range of listings and its innovative and robust e-commerce and auction platforms. There are no plans to significantly change the way you use the site

OZtion's traditionally strong presence in areas such as fashion, jewellery, homewares and other goods will remain a key focus of the website.

The core OZtion team has been encouraged to remain with the business.

Please click here for a list of FAQs related to this exciting opportunity.

We look forward to an exciting future for OZtion together with carsales.

The sale is expected to complete on or around September 15, 2010.

Regards

Philip Druce
General Manager

New - Temando Delivery Now Integrated

We are pleased to announce that OZtion and Temando have joined forces to give you access to a wide range of delivery options at unbeatable prices for tracked door-to-door services. This new innovative system will allow you to quote, book and track deliveries directly from OZtion.

About Temando - Temando is a leader in freight quoting and booking, and works by taking a senders delivery request and matching it against the desired freight types of different carriers, providing accurate delivery pricing and then electronically booking the job and creating the required documentation.

Sellers wishing to utilise the benefits of this new service just need to create an OZtion/Temando Freight Account and setup some preferences.

Listings will display the cheapest delivery price, and users will have the ability to compare delivery services/prices.

The best part of having an OZtion/Temando Freight Account is that it can offer you unbeatable prices that are passed on to your buyers, and you do NOT need to have accounts with multiple freight carriers and couriers which normally require minimum spends and volume.

New - Specify your own Tags (for sellers)

When including Tags within your listing you can now specify your own Tag values. This allows you to specify particular details about your item even when none of our pre-defined Tag values match.
 
To specify your own value, choose 'Other' from the Tag list and then enter your own value in the text box provided. When users browse your listing they will see the value you specified. Note: As of today this new feature is only available when listing/editing online, Express Lister functionality should be available later this week.
 
 
Tags are now available in the following categories on OZtion.

We are pleased to announce that we have recently released a new version of Express Lister. View below to see what's new.
  • Now compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms 
  • vShop categories are now included when importing listings from OZtion 
  • Category Tags are now included in Express Lister 
  • Improvement - vShop categories can now be managed directly from the New/Edit Item form

  • Fixed - User Access Control problem on Windows Vista and Windows 7
  • Free to use
=============================================
Note for existing Express Lister users: A new installation is required. You will need to uninstall your previous version of Express Lister from Control Panel or from the Start Menu (your data will not be deleted/uninstalled), however we still suggest that you backup your data before uninstalling.
 
We note that some users installed the new version and it did not contain any previous data. This is probably because the previous version of Express Lister was not installed in the default folder (C:\Program Files\OZtion\OZtion Express Lister 2.0). To restore your data follow the steps below.
 
Case 1 - You have already installed version 2.5.15 and cannot see your old data
1. Go to Tools -> Restore Data -> then find and select the sys.bin file in the custom installation folder you chose when you installed your previous version of Express Lister.
 
Case 2 - You have not yet installed version 2.5.15

New Baby Clothing Categories on OZtion Beta

We are excited to announce the launch of our new category structure that can be tried out on OZtion Beta.

The new category structure will allow sellers to select additional details when creating or editing a listing. For example, for an item of clothing, sellers may include particular details such as Type, Brand, Colour, Size, Material etc. Buyers will then be able to narrow their search results using these additional details and in turn view a more detailed item description.

At present, the new category structure has only been introduced to the Baby Care > Clothing category via OZtion Beta. This is just for the interim so we may collect and assess your valuable feedback relating to the new category structure. The new structure will also be introduced to other categories on a regular basis.

At this stage, sellers can only select additional details (Item Particulars) from the online listing page (just under the category), not through Express Lister. Stay tuned as a new and improved version of Express Lister with the new category structure will be released shortly.

Outage Sat 6/3

An unexpected problem occurred at our primary data centre which affected most of the equipment housed there. Due to the nature of the problem and the ETA of when systems would be operational again it was more appropriate to wait rather than bringing OZtion online at our redundant data centre.

Listings that were due to end between 5:00pm 6th March and 2:00am 7th March were extended by 24 hours. 
Update: 9/3/2010 - Please note that some listings were incorrectly extended by 1 hour instead of 1 day. For those affected listings that were still listed as of 4pm today, we have changed the 'hours, minutes and seconds' back to match the 'hours, minutes and seconds' of when the listing was listed.

We apologise unreservedly for the inconvenience this may have caused you.

Forum Screen Names

Hi Guys,

We recently announced that we made some changes to the forums including the introduction of Screen Names for privacy reasons. We also advised to please select your Screen Name carefully as it cannot be amended later, however allowed for a grace period whereby members could amend their Screen Name.

Please be advised, there will be a final 24 hour period whereby members can still change their Screen Name; this option will no longer be available once this 24 hour period has lapsed.

We reiterate, Screen Names will NO longer be able to be amended from 22nd December 11:00am AEDT with NO exceptions.

Regards,

Changes to the Forums

Hi Guys,

We have made some changes to the forums today. Users of the forums are now required to provide a Screen Name.

Please choose your Screen Name carefully as it cannot be amended later. You can choose a unique Screen Name or your own OZtion username. Note: An OZtion member cannot choose another OZtion member's username as their screen name.

Member feedback has indicated concern with privacy and possible negative consequences, due to posting in the community forums. An example of one of these negative consequences may include the unnecessary blocking of a member due to a forum post, which would be eliminated if that member was using a Screen Name.

This function simply allows those members that prefer to remain private exactly that, private. Those members that do not wish to remain private, can continue to use their existing OZtion username as their Screen Name.

We have also invited active forum members to submit their interest in becoming a forum moderator. Please click here for further details.

Regards,

The OZtion Team

Listings with Auto-Relist selected are automatically relisted during the free relist period, however, during busy periods a queue may form. Listings that are pending Auto-Relist can be seen in your Unsold List and will be relisted eventually, normally within seconds or minutes.
 
Kind regards,

Listings that are pending Auto-Relist can be seen in your Unsold List and will be relisted eventually, normally within seconds or minutes.

BuyNow Only Auto-Relist clarification (for sellers)

Hi Guys,

Buy Now Only listings are no longer Auto-Relisted (see the following text from the announcement dated 17th July 2009.)  For many of you this will have resulted in an increase in the number of listings being moved to your Unsold List.

Please read the following explanation and clarification:

How will it affect my current BuyNow Only listings?
Current BuyNow Only listings will run until the current duration ends or until it is purchased (whichever comes first).
Example: If you listed a BuyNow Only listing for 28 days on the 1st July the listing will end on the 29th July and go into your Unsold list (if not purchased). You can relist directly from your Unsold list and the duration will be updated to 60 days
.

Note: You will not be required to pay a relist fee unless the listing is older than 60 days.

Kind regards,

Changes to BuyNow Only listings

We will be making some changes to BuyNow Only listings.

  1. BuyNow Duration Changes
    We are changing the listing duration of BuyNow Only listings. Currently sellers can select 3, 5, 7, 10, 14 or 28 days when they list a BuyNow Only listing. BuyNow Only listings can be purchased at anytime (the buyer does not have to wait until the listing ends) so we have decided to extend the duration period to 60 days. This will allow sellers to list BuyNow Only listings for longer.
  2. BuyNow Auto-Relist Changes
    The Auto-Relist function will no longer be available on BuyNow Only listings after the changes take place. Auto-Relist is a feature that automatically relists a listing during the free relist period, since the free relist period is 60 days and BuyNow Only listings will become 60 days, Auto-Relist will no longer be necessary on BuyNow Only listings.
Why are you making these changes?
To increase the length of time a BuyNow Only listing can be listed. Unlike auction listings, BuyNow Only listings are available for instant purchase, a definite end date is not necessary. So it makes sense to increase the duration and let them run for the entire free listing period (60 days). The change will also help sellers manage their listings, knowing they will be listed until sold or 60 days.

When will the changes take affect?
The changes will be rolled out on Tuesday the 21st July 2009.

How will it affect my current BuyNow Only listings?
Current BuyNow Only listings will run until the current duration ends or until it is purchased (whichever comes first).
Example: If you listed a BuyNow Only listing for 28 days on the 1st July the listing will end on the 29th July and go into your Unsold list (if not purchased). You can relist directly from your Unsold list and the duration will be updated to 60 days.

So what happens when I list a BuyNow Only listing after the changes take place?
You will be able to select a duration of 60 days.

Can I change my Auction Only and Auction with BuyNow listing format to a BuyNow Only listing format and vice versa?
Yes, as long as the listing hasn't got any promotional features and hasn't received any bids. If you want to change the listing format you will be required to select a relevant duration for that format.

Make An Offer - Minimum Offer

Hi Everyone,
 
Yesterday afternoon we launched Make An Offer (see previous announcement) and we wanted to let you know what a success it has been. We can see hundreds of you have already made offers and over 50% of those offers have already been accepted with an average offer price being 75% of the BuyNow price.
 
We are always looking to improve things and after receiving feedback from some sellers stating that they don't want to waste time with really low offers we have decided to introduce a minimum offer threshold to avoid the chance of sellers receiving low offers. The minimum offer price will be 40% of the BuyNow price.

Victorian Bushfires 2009 - Transaction delays anticipated

Dear OZtion Members,

We have all been touched by the tragic events surrounding the devastating Bushfires and Floods of late. Some of our members have also been directly affected, others indirectly and are quite distraught whilst trying to still cope, due to the unforseen tragedies at hand.

Whilst our thoughts remain with all those individuals and families affected, we respectfully request that at this crucial time, all members, sellers and buyers, extend a little patience as a goodwill gesture, and thus anticipate delays with regard to receipt of payments, items purchased or messages not yet responded to.

Kind regards,

The OZtion Team

Over the passed year we have provided you with many fantastic new features such as: RSS Feeds, Postage Calculator linked through Australia Post, Smarter Searching, Ad-tion, flexible Merchandise Packs and Adget. We rocked your world when we announced our exciting partnership with successful, Melbourne based Jumbuck Entertainment LTD, which has only accelerated OZtion's growth even further, by massive jumps in member numbers, sales and listings. We also announced that we have launched Australia's newest and most cost-effective online car classifieds website - CarBuddy, with FREE listings until June 30th 2009.
 
To top off the year, OZtion received fantastic exposure through Sky News and was strongly portrayed as the rapidly growing successful Australian online auction site it is today.
 
What a year! YES - When we promise, we deliver.
 
Thank you all for your valued contribution to our wonderful site. OZtion turned 4 yesterday.

CarBuddy - Car Classifieds

CarBuddy.com.au is OZtion's new website for buying and selling cars, we decided to introduce a dedicated car classifieds website so that cars could be advertised correctly with detailed information and specifications. CarBuddy offers some great functions and features for selling or buying a car online. Features such as Eco & Safety data, valuation ranges, large images and directions to the car dealer make CarBuddy an informative and friendly site to use.
 
We launched the beta version of CarBuddy in early December and invited current car sellers on OZtion to list their cars. In just over 2 weeks we have seen over 3500 cars listed for sale.
 
We will be removing the "Cars For Sale" category on OZtion on the 31st December 2008. Car listings from the 1st January 2009 onwards can be listed on CarBuddy.com.au.
 
Standard ads are FREE until June 30 2009.

Note: OZtion members can use their OZtion email and password to quickly create a CarBuddy account.

Free listing marketing to continue


OZtion received a fax a couple of days ago from a lawyer at Sensis asking OZtion to 'immediately cease making the Statement...' that it is 'Free to List items' in our advertising material and on quicksales.com.au.

Click here to read the fax (pdf)

Some Facts:

(1) OZtion will continue to offer free auction listings.

(2) We have extended our free classifieds to June 30th 2009, which are designed purely for items like cars, motorcycles, boats etc.

As we all know Sensis owns Trading Post so does this mean that they are worried about quicksales.com.au?

We noticed that Trading Post changed their web site today, adding fine print behind their marketing claims. They should have done this prior to sending the letter. See the screenshot below taken on the 12th August 2008 after we received the letter.

OZtion grows with Jumbuck

Over the last 2 years, OZtion has grown at an amazing pace. From humble beginnings, our Melbourne based team have built Australia's best online auction technology, and helped hundreds of thousands of Australians to buy and sell products online.

Today, we have announced a new partnership, which will help us grow even faster.

We have entered into an agreement to be acquired by Melbourne based Jumbuck Entertainment (www.jumbuck.com), an Australian online media company. Jumbuck is successful around the world, and publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: JMB).
 
So how will things change?

We will have access to more resources and people from within Jumbuck. This will help us to grow even faster, and build great new services.
 
Our current team will stay the same, and so will our fees and the services that we currently offer.
 
Philip Druce and Kelvin Yip, our founders, will still be running OZtion, and will become Jumbuck shareholders as part of the deal. It will now also be easy for Australians to invest in OZtion, and share in our success.
 
Please see our Questions and Answers page for more information.

Changes to Unpaid Item Process

The following changes have been made to the Unpaid Item Process.

  • The Unreliable Buyer List has been discontinued; automatic buying restrictions have been introduced instead.
  • Members will be restricted from bidding or buying if they have 3 or more Unpaid item marks (unresolved 'Unpaid Item' reports) from 3 or more unique sellers.

  • Sellers can view an 'Unpaid Item' report that was previously closed as 'Payment not received', and mark it as PAID. The system will automatically remove the Unpaid item mark from the buyer's account and charge the seller the sale fee again. Previously, sellers needed to contact customer service to have the entry removed and recharge the sale fee, in cases where the buyer had paid or ended up paying.

Changes to the Wanted Forum

We've changed the way the Wanted forum works. The wanted forum was provided to assist OZtion members with finding an item or selling an item on OZtion.

Since its release many members have been referring people to places other than OZtion and many OZtion sellers have missed out on a sale as a result.

The new wanted forum format allows an OZtion member to post what they want, and for any member to reply with an OZtion item number; this will help ensure OZtion sellers benefit from "wanted" item sales.

2nd Department for vShops (for sellers)

vShop owners now have the option of choosing a second department for their vShop to be listed in.
 
A flat fee of $5.00 per 30 days is charged for having a second department. Once a second department has been confirmed, you can unselect or select a second department anytime within 30 days without incurring additional fees.
 
Having a vShop listed in 2 departments will be beneficial to sellers that offer different lines of merchandise. Listing your vShop in 2 departments will also increase your exposure to shoppers.

Go to  My OZtion > Selling > vShop Manager > Edit vShop Details  to add a 2nd department.

Postage Calculator has been launched!

We are pleased to announce that OZtion's new postage calculator and additional postage options are now available.

The postage calculator will assist sellers with displaying accurate Australia Post domestic postage costs in their listings, based on the buyer's location. Additional postage options are also now available.

What's new?

  • There are now 6 postage options when listing an item:
    • Free postage
    • Flat postage - all buyers see the same cost (this is the same as the previous postage field in OZtion)
    • Flat postage by location (allows different postage rates for different AU States)
    • Calculated postage - cost will vary by buyer postcode (Regular and Express services available)
    • See item description / postage instructions
    • No postage - local pickup only
    • Items with calculated postage will display the accurate Australia Post domestic postage cost in the listing, based on the buyer's postcode (the cost is retrieved from Australia Post in real time).
    • Regular and Express services can be selected when using calculated postage.
    • Items with 'Flat postage by location' will show postage to different locations (per state in Australia).
    • The OZtion Postage Calculator can be used an independent tool to research Australia Post domestic and international postage costs.

    Sellers will still be able to select one or more 'Post to location' when listing an item.
    Note: Sellers that offer 'Worldwide' postage can provide details in the 'Postage instructions' field as normal. Listings with calculated postage will not show the calculated postage if the buyer is located outside of Australia, however, the buyer can click a link to enter their country and postcode to see what the Australia Post international postage cost would be.

    Additional postage services and options including international functions will be available at a later date.

    A new version of Express Lister with the new postage option changes will be available to download on the 15th of January.

        Changes to Underbidder Offer

        We are pleased to announce that sellers can now offer items to their underbidders (non-winning bidders).

        What's changed?
        Previously an Underbidder Offer could only be sent to the underbidder if the winning bidder did not pay. The new changes will now allow the seller to send an offer to any or all underbidder(s) providing they have sufficient stock available. The offer will be for a BuyNow price equal to the underbidder's maximum bid amount.

        Please see the following help page for more info:
