It's sad that this rating system forces you to give a star, they do not deserve that - they deserve to be closed down. Complete and utter clutter website, if you import from your eBay or Etsy they reduce the price of your merchandise forcing you to undercut yourself! They even import things that sold long ago. To stop it, you must manually take action, good luck trying to do that, and their support (lack there of) is utterly worthless. (read more)

This site is the most paranoid company ever around. They dont care about their sellers and treat them like garbage. They egg buyers on to leave negative feedback and dont bother to remove falsley stated comments. They will suspend you without notice and without reason. They will put blame on everyone else and think your stupid. They tried to blame Google for old feeds being posted, when every seller knows the only thing you have to do is kill the file. They gave every single lame ass excuse,... (read more)

I purchased Gillette Fusion Replacement Blades (4 Cartridge) on 7/30/2013 from the seller on BONANZA. I just received the package today and when I opened the package, it was not in the original box but in an opened package AND 2 OF THE RAZORS WERE USED!!!! This is unethical, dishonest and unsanitary!!! When I contact Bonanza, the customer support did not apologize and told me to solve myself with the seller. (read more)

I've sold all over the internet for the last 10 to 15 years, and on Bonanza for the last five. One day they suspended me from the site with no warning, and shut my store down. They refuse to give me any specifics why. I can't remove my financial information they insisted I had to put on the site, and I can't access my items to move them to my other venues.

Like many before me (I wish I had looked up a review of this website before I placed a purchase), this website is just a terrible business. Bought something through them, and suddenly the sellers information disappeared. The item never arrived, I opened a dispute, and they don't really do anything to help you. Their dispute center is pretty useless, its pretty much a B.S. way to make you feel like you can do something about having your money taken from you. I had to open a dispute with... (read more)

Bonanza takes sellers side in disputes, while pretending to be a neutral middle party on the surface. There is written evidence that they have not been honest and forthcoming with the buyer in disputes. Also, website feedback against the seller mysteriously disappear. It is hard to think of a likable aspect when dealing with them causes loss of hundreds of dollars. I am sorry that I cannot think of anything positive about the experience. (read more)

I've been on Bonanza since 2010 and all I can say is it's like high school all over again. It's a popularity contest with other sellers and if you try to be nice in the forums, most of them will be rude to you, report you, etc. If you aren't in their little posse click, you will be shunned, and treated as such... And most of the time, the bonanza crew will take their side, leaving you clueless and alone. Great stuff... I was there to sell and make money, not to be buddy-buddy with everyone... (read more)

I made a purchase with an online vendor who ended up just taking my money without having sent my purchase. Bonanza's website allows you to contact the seller but the privacy settings are like Facebook, making it difficult to know much about whom you're buying from if they've set their seller profile to private (this was after I'd made my bad purchase that the seller profile was all of a sudden private). Upon opening a claim with Bonanza, they passed the buck to contact Paypal (who had no... (read more)

Any shipping issues from when I was quite ill were resolved satisfactorily. I now have staff working for my store, have a very successful eBay business, and went back to Bonanza.

I've both purchased and sold items on bonanza many times over the years. Purchasing items is really simple and it's nice that Paypal is accepted by most merchants. As far as selling goes, while it may be true that it might not bring in as much traffic as the bigger sites, it is really user friendly and very easy to sell on. Customer service it also quick to respond to any questions and courteous. When listings items I also like how it will allow you to upload products from other sites and... (read more)

I signed up to use Bonanza as it accepts sellers from all over the world. However then I could only offer inland postage to the USA, and overseas to anywhere else, including my own country (the UK). PLus within hours of joining I was spammed with xrated rubbish from other users. Crazy. I contacted support to ask about the postage option and there was no way to alter it, they said.

I would highly recommend Bonanza to the new seller. It takes a little longer to make a sale but the ease in downloading your pictures as compared to other sites makes all the difference in the world. Unlike other sites, your items for sale can stay listed for as long as you want. You don't have to spend time re listing items like you do on Ebay.

From a seller and buyer's point of view: Buyer and seller: The search on Bonanza is not very "smart." It is glitchy at times. Their new function of having all items on one page is very, very strange since when scrolling down the images temporarily disappear. I tend to lose focus on where I saw a listing at on the page. I have not purchased on Bonanza since they changed this and my sales have also declined. Coincidental? I do not know. But I think not regretfully. Bonanza does not advertise... (read more)

I had a booth on Bonanzle for quite some time and had several items listed. I sold a few things, but not much. I had to go away for a while due to family matters and since there was not much activity on the booth, I did not check on it while away. On my return, Bonanzle had removed ALL my items from my booth. Why? Because I had a balance of $1.10 owing on my booth. So for this piddly amount, I am supposed to take the time to relist 50 or so items again, all the time for descriptions,... (read more)

We highly do not recommend this site. We have had a "booth" on Bonanzle/Bonanza for almost two years. They do not support their sellers, have very little traffic - we sold two items in this time period, they tried to tell us the value of our items, seem to be catering to the deep discount to try and attract buyers and seem to be writing their own good reviews to attract people to the site.

According to AuctionBytes and others, they are growing at a faster rate (percentage-wise) than ANY OTHER SITE. Why? Because it's a unique and refreshing atmosphere. Not to mention no insertion fees, low fvf's, and easy navigation and set up.
Those are qualities that keep people coming to the site. I'm banking on this one.
