If anyone is in the market for a netbook, I suggest they check out the bidtent site tonight.... I won that Samsung model a month or so ago, as well as a Dell model and a couple of HPs.... I can say that the Samsung one is the best out of all of them, as far as graphics, keyboard comfort, trackpad usability.... And it has a 6 hour battery along with other netbook-standard features. Happy bidding!

@rsm - thanks for the plug!

We do combine shipping - just email us and we will send a combined invoice (auction won prices and the $5.00 shipping)

I've been looking over this site the past week or so. Some people are getting insane deals. I'm curious to see what the $1000 visa will go for :)

bidtent, about how long did it take you to get all the business forms processed? LLC, tax ID, etc...

BidVee:

It took about 4 weeks for CA to do the corporation (standard mail in). You can get your Tax ID online from the IRS right away.

Resale permit and city "business license" are also 1 day items.

You can get your CA corporation in about 7 days if you hand deliver and pay a special fee.

Software was fairly easy to setup (I had a license issue). But I am familiar with Linux and PHP so I got around easily with it.

Is there a daily limit also along with 12 wins/week?

Thanks

Unfortunately I can't set weekly *and* daily limits with that software as far as I know.

So you could win 12 in one day but most people will not do that. We hope. At any rate, we will try this out for a week and see what people think.

This is why I want custom software!

Well, my other business (IT Consulting) is expanding and I have taken on a software developer that is well versed in PHP, etc. I think I will have him work a script. Maybe it would be something I could resell!

How long do you all normally wait for a penny auction site to ship? USPS Click N Ship makes it really easy!

Ha! A question I want to answer..through my personal experience with BidRay, and some other similar penny auctions it takes anywhere from 2-4 weeks to receive the items.

Haha...that is why I am shocked that I received a tracking # already the day after I won the auction.
