“I ordered an item and never received it. It has been...”

Written on: 17/09/2014

I ordered an item and never received it. It has been almost a month and I am still waiting on a refund from PayPal (if I were PayPal I would refuse business from this site). I wish I had checked reviewcentre before making that purchase. The issues as I see them are: - They allow the seller to import feedback from other sites and that appears to allow the seller to erroneously present a positive history. - They leave everything to PayPal to get your refund. I like the idea of the site… Read Full Review

I am a vendor on the site and while I agree that there are those that make it bad for the majority of honest vendors importing our feedback is the only way to communicate our honest policy. Business on the site is so slow because everyone chooses to shop on eBay so in order to sell most of us are there as well. On that site vendors are not treated well unless you are a large big box retailer. On bonanza vendors are treated with dignity no matter the vendor's size. The better treatment coupled with lower fees allows us to sell cheaper than we can on eBay which is a savings to our valued customers.

“waste of time- ordered seller was fraud now paypal dispute”

Written on: 08/09/2014 by Izayahl280 (1 review written)

I ordered an item early august that was to be released mid september. then received an email stating the following: "The seller "........." has been permanently suspended from Bonanza due to non delivery of items. Based on the activity on their account, we believe that they are acting in a fraudulent way. Bonanza errs on the cautious side when dealing with such sellers and we have permanently removed them from our site. We would ***Highly*** recommend that you contact PayPal as soon as… Read Full Review

“Owner seems determined to provide poor service ”

Written on: 22/08/2014 by olpe.murphy (1 review written)

Poor programming, lots of bugs in the interface. Also, the owner, Mark, appears to be a bit paranoid. When he shut down the forums, I lost all interest in this website. He sent me e-mail saying they would suspend me as a seller, because I had too many canceled transactions. The reason I had to cancel the transactions, was because I had already sold the item on another web-selling website. Why was it still listed on Bonanza? I don't know, because Bonanza had promised to update my Bonanza… Read Full Review

Good grief! Now he has sent me 7 (seven!) messages telling me to pay my monthly seller-fees bill. When I log in, it says I don't owe any money! See what I mean about poor programming? (I am a programmer, so I am a little snooty about poor programming.)

“Best online shopping”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by SoulsTouch (1 review written)

Tbh, my Bonanza review is a bit biased, but I just love this shopping site. I'd shop online at bonanza.com before I went anywhere else. Their prices are often lower than other online selling sites because they don't gauge their sellers for seller fees, so sellers can lower their prices. They also don't spend a ton of money on advertising. Negative reviewers must be paid to leave reviews because Bonanza is giving other online selling sites a run for their money. Sellers are flocking there in… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/07/2014 by jhaan2 (1 review written)

This is a mini-ebay without any legitimacy. I ordered a tent and it never arrived. The seller never returned my attempts to contact her. Yet she took my $70. Unfortunately, Bonanza immediately refers you to paypal or amazon to get your refund. They essentially put frauds on their site who set low prices, take your money, and then Bonanza forces paypal and amazon to fix their problems. LAME business model; cheats. Steer clear. … Read Full Review

“Ni Traffic for sellers / Bonanza treats sellers badly”

Written on: 14/06/2014 by McKnight126 (1 review written)

Very rare to sell anything. The fees (if you ever sell something) have become very high if you want your items to be seen in "google shopping." Which does not appear to have increased sales. If you have a problem with a buyer forget it. They will assign a customer rep to watch every email you exchange with your buyer. They insist on a refund for the buyer no matter what the situation is, even if unfair. They will suggest to your customer to do a charge back via Paypal! Leaving the customer… Read Full Review

“Save your time and keep your money safe, DON'T SHOP HERE!”

Written on: 06/05/2014

This is an AWFUL business, with VERY bad business practices. I wish I could have selected ZERO stars! They appear to allow Sellers on their website to improperly enhance what might otherwise be a bad feedback rating, by selectively importing feedback from other websites. On top of this, Bonanza.com doesn't appear to really care about what their sellers really do, or how good or bad they really are. They basically tell you to go to the payment source, and don't seem to even attempt to… Read Full Review

Didnt even sign up for a seller account for a month and already they suspended our account because they couldnt charge $3.00 in sellers fees to a credti card that was perfectly valid. We had $3.00 worth of seller charges for February. Immediately they removed our listings and removed our login. Without any emails whatsoever everything was gone. Are you that pathetic that you remove a perfectly good seller because you cant charge a mesely $3 that wasnt even due. There weant even a full months… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/12/2013

To any seller that wanting to do business, say the hell away from Bonanza. They will charge your credit card left and right for every single charge whether or not a buyer paid for the item. They will tell your customer to interfer with your business by filing false disputes with PayPal for every little thing. The second you get one problem, without you having any say, they will suspend your account, not allow you access to pending orders and will tell all your customers to file disputes… Read Full Review

“Beyond Terrible! Zero Stars”

Written on: 03/12/2013

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 Full Review

“Bonanza Treats Their Sellers Like Gargage”

Written on: 07/11/2013

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 Full Review

Internetbuyer's Comment

Written on: 10/02/2014

Same here, just signed up for Bonanza as a seller and yes they are SUPER PARANOID, they are putting new seller accounts on hold and asking for 2 or three other stores you've sold on for a look on how you run your business. That is extremely odd since your a new seller. It looks like what these gents say will be true for our experience.

“Fraudulent Seller in Bonanza”

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 Full Review

Don't waste your time ordering from this company! The don't list on their web site that items will be shipped from CHINA!!! I placed an order nearly 2 months ago now and still have not received the item! It took two times trying to contact them before they finally sent a tracking number. Tracking reveals the item has been sitting somewhere in a facility in New Jersey since the 26th and still no projected delivery date!. So don't waste your time, if you can find what you're looking for… Read Full Review

Belangers's Comment

Written on: 01/10/2013

Yes, some resellers may be from overseas, but, I am a reseller from the USA, and I list on Bonanza. I just started doing so. Not all resellers or products bought are from China. It is like Amazon. Not all items come from Amazon, most of them come from resellers, and Bonanza should indicate the country of origin for the shipping.

They did not require that I post where I ship from, but, recommend it. That should be a policy that they write where the reseller ships from. I am having difficulty myself stopping from shipping overseas, and they do not even give me a place to stop my items from shipping anywhere in the world,.

I will just refuse the shipments if they are outside the US.

“Close Stores With No Warning, or Explanation Why”

Written on: 13/06/2013

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. If you are a seller, stay away… Read Full Review

I agree 100% Bonanza is not a trusted selling venue. I sold on there for 4 years and they did the exact same thing to me. I moved on quickly and opened my own website and am so happy to be away from bonanza. I decided after Bonanza no one will be the boss of me and my items so I opened a website and am doing 150% more sales on my own then I ever did on Bonanza. Stay away from Bonanza!!!!
