“Avoid this site”

Written on: 28/03/2015 by AveryMoss38 (1 review written)

They reduce views to ur site & then try to charge you higher monthly fees for so called turbo traffic. Then they charge u 16% to have lisitngs show up in google & nextag. Our average fees per item were 21% last month. Back to ebay we go. They don't even have a fax machine or real phone # to call them. We got charged $100s in fees for items never sold. Never got refund on fees when we refunded buyers. Heard enough . lol… Read Full Review

“Bad Seller/No Support”

Written on: 10/03/2015 by MirandaNicholson (1 review written)

This was my first time to purchase on Bonanza and it will be my last. The item was advertised as "new, with tags". When I received it the smell of cigarette smoke was so strong, I could not have it in my house. The Seller wanted to do nothing but blame the Post Office and make them pay for it, even though the smell was on the inside of the box, not the outside. Upon review of Bonanza's policies there is no real recourse for buyers. I would recommend no one purchase from this site… Read Full Review

“An amazing marketplace - recommended for everyone.”

Written on: 20/02/2015 by ilyagurman (1 review written)

I've been selling on Bonanza for 3 months only. already with more than 200 sales. Their advertisement program works. fees are lowers than ebay. support responds quickly. The paid membership is VERY good. I found my alternative to eBay and done with eBay for life. I think this site is a great alternative to ebay's marketplace and it is improving constantly. the management is listening to sellers and buyers suggestions, and doing their best to improve all the time. it is growing and I love it. … Read Full Review

“Not only will you never sell anything on Bonaza...”

Written on: 18/02/2015 by SamaraGarrett (1 review written)

Not only will you never sell anything on Bonaza because they have no real traffic, but they will make up frivolous fees and say you owe money, when you don't. Then they will shut down your account by saying you owe $5 and in order to "reinstate" your account they will want you to pay a $25 penalty. Oh my, this place is hilarious! Made up fees for something that we did not sell and then they really think I'm going to pay $25 to reinstate an account on a website that is dead. Sellers steer… Read Full Review

“Worse site to sell your stuff.”

Written on: 12/02/2015 by Abagaill198 (1 review written)

I make about 6,000 sales on ebay and about 3,000 on amazon every month. I listed 8,000 items on bonanza, spent about $2,000 paying for some extra help and have a nice store on Bonanza. First, I had to paid for a pro membership because they were hiding my items from their searching engine. Later,  I was emailed saying I had too many items on my booth and I was required to upgrade to their $300.00 monthly membership, otherwise, I would be suspended immediately. I told him I didn't think… Read Full Review

“Buyer Beware!”

Written on: 21/01/2015 by Abel1953 (1 review written)

Basically, this company is a rip off. They seem to be selling non-existent products. There is no communication with the sellers and the company does nothing to assist people who have been ripped off. There recommendation is to file a claim with your credit card company or Paypal. If you don't get your product, it's just tough crackers. Buyer Beware!… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/01/2015

Um, just like anywhere, you should check out a seller before you purchase. Bonanza makes it really easy to see the last time a seller had visited the site. If they haven't been there in a long time, they probably aren't removing inventory that becomes out of stock. I've had that happen to me on Amazon, too. Lesson learned.

Oh, and you can easily file claims and get your money back for items not delivered, esp. if you pay with paypal. Easy peasy.

“Poor Communication”

Written on: 20/12/2014 by Kailee109 (1 review written)

Item originally purchased on Nov. 12th. I opened a case with Bonanza due to a seller not shipping item, although he had been paid. The case was opened on Nov. 28...no response until Dec. 8th from Bonanza. That's 10 days later. In the meantime, I had resolved my case on my own with my credit card company and they had issued me a refund. At that contact on Dec. 8th, Bonanza took disciplinary actions against the seller, and told me I had three days to get my funds back through my credit card… Read Full Review

“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

Purplenita's Comment

Written on: 29/09/2014

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.

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

Alexi2000's Comment

Written on: 22/03/2015

I sell on both Etsy and eBay, it is a fact that if you do not receive a refund for your purchase it is because you did not complain to Paypal Etsy, eBay and Bonanza can not issue a refund. I think sellers need to be vetted, A credit check should be done before anyone can open a selling account. It is a SHAME that buyers don't get 100% satisfaction.

“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
