    Hey everybody !
    Don't you think that a bid system could be very good in the marketplace ?
    For exemple when someone want to sell his website or social media account ...

    Not good idea, as bidding is like auction and than we will need mods to deal in them etc. So too much headache.

    That actually sounds super cool. Wonder if there's a Xenforo plugin for that.

    Didn't know, I was in the wrong section ! Hope a Mod will put this thread in the good section.

    I was thinking about bids because you can earn way more money when you sell a unique product, but yes it will require more work for mods ....

    And all the hassle of people not paying, bids reaching silly levels, dispute resolution, payments. There are sites like flippa for that, best to keep this as a forum

    Yes i was also thinking about this, but there is some solutions to avoid people not paying, by blocking their money for exemple.

    An auction system is really really simple in fact you could have it right now.

    Last post before 00:00 hours on day X is the last bid. No post editing allowed. After 2 hours the auction is decided. No special plugin needed.

    But what about different time zones, you have to run it for 7 days to be fair

    No you didn't understand what I wanted to say.
    For exemple someone will put a bid of 800$ and then it will be blocked (assuming that BHW will have a funds system) and if he win, money will be directly reversed to the seller :)

    I don't see that happening. It's too much responsibility for BHW. They would need army of employees and lawyers for that.
