  • How ethical are post bid changes?

    Perhaps someone could assist with some advice? I currently have a bid on a specific product of mine and wish to add an enhanced listing feature to the sale, the only problem is that I have already recieved a bid. My intention is not to alter the price or sales conditions, but merely to attract more potential buyers to the auction.The auction still has 5 days to run.

    Firstly as a relative newbie, is it possible to do this and secondly is it ethical to alter a sale after a bidder has already commited to a bid? All advice would be most appreciated.

    I don't think it is possible to do this without deleting the bids first, perhaps directing this request to hello@bidorbuy.co.za would be the best idea. They can probably edit the listing for you with whichever enhancement you need.

      Thanks BumbleBee will direct this to them. Just a question before I do, as you have clearly been around a while, do you think that this is ethical ? It is just a listing enhancement but I would still like a more eductaed opinion before taking this to BoB ?

        I've been tossing this around for a bit, didn't want to answer that too prematurely. I don't feel that it would be unethical to add an enhancement to a listing after it has been bid on, after all you are not changing the listing itself in any way.
