    Just trying to find out whether the £9.95 featured plus fee is applcable to all items on an auction (i.e. 3 on Buy It Now - £29.85) or whether it's a one off charge irrespective of how many items you have in your listing?

    ...looking at the details that would appear to be the case - it just isn't that clear. Pretty sure as you say it's just a one-off payment - if you were selling loads of items for a few quid each, the featured price if charged against each item would exceed each item sold, so it can't be can it?

    It is one off. I used it for the 6 Dimension 3000's. What is a con is if you want to sell 40 PC's or one Coke can its still £9.95

    I found it to be a complete waste of ten quid and it didn't make the slightest difference to selling prices.

    You're probably right - you do get a bit more exposure as your advert remains at the top of the page and again in the listing section - not really worth a tenner though.

    With an auction you'll also have bidders who avoid looking at the featured stuff (like me) as I expect it to have higher prices than non-featured items.

    Whether its true or not I dont know :rofl2:

    I am exactly the same, however I use it all the time and think it is essential! The bidder I am after is the person with 1 or 2 feedbacks who is relatively new to the whole thing. The experienced pro with high feedback is never going to give you top dollar! He's probably selling computers himself! :crash:
