Dump and Run Sellers
Defined as the sellers that transport their listings onto a site, never to be seen again.
The unsuspecting buyer does not understand why they are not receiving answers to inquiries, or their items.
Bonanzle has decided to take action to alleviate the problem caused by the 'dump and run seller' and is implementing a new program to warn them.
By instituting the following:
Sellers who haven't logged in for a couple months and do not respond to buyer emails will have their items reserved after a given number of warnings.
Sellers who haven't specified a valid form of payment to accept (Paypal, MO, or Google Checkout) will have their items reserved after a given number of warnings.
Sellers who do not pay their fees will have their booth items reserved after a given number of warnings.
Also note that on Bonanzle, a reserved item is not a deleted item. The item is no longer visible in the sellers booth or on the site, but it is still in the seller's management area and can be re-activated via the Bonanzle Batch Editor.
