  • Bob Appraised Art Category

    Hi,
    Has Anybody Used This New Function To Appraise Art And Found That The Appraisals Values Are Not That Great ??? Or Misleading ?
    The Bob Appraiser Is Listing His Art For Sale On Bob. I Personally Feel That The Appraiser Should Be Independent From Selling Art On Bob .
    Thanks

    I wasn't happy with the appraised value on a piece I submitted - and as such will not be using this feature. I didn't realise the appraiser was also a seller on BoB...

      The Appraised Art Category

      Hi everybody,

      We started the appraised art category to try and instil a bit of confidence in the buyers on bidorbuy that they were buying truly authentic South African art.

      Unfortunately, along the way, we experienced a few glitches which have made some sellers quite unhappy.
      In order for us to rethink the strategy of the new category - to make it more fair and efficient - it will be closed until further notice.

      Thank you

        Hi there

        I think the appraised art section although a noble and pleasing concept, is a bit tough to pull off, unless you are going to employ a full time independent art expert. I saw some strange values listed under this section.

        I think it would be better to monitor the existing categories and improve them first. A point in fact is the ongoing irritation being caused by mass produced Chinese paintings that are being sold as original South African art. This is a very quick and simple matter to police and would greatly improve the site.

        I am very impressed though with the new layout, looks good!

        Kind regards
