We are in the process of completing our seller shops at pognu.com. Several new sellers have joined and are now listing items, so if you haven't visited in a while, stop bye and take a look!

Now, regarding a few changes in the site. Our shops have been completed and we are still in the testing phase of those. Shops may be purchased by sellers to list only their items on, so they will have an exact replica of the pognu homepage all to themselves. Sellers are not required fto have a shop, they may still list items on the homepage for free.

We are going to have a new look and several new features which include a featured item on the homepage, faster falling prices, ZAP - which will allow buyers to zap the price down to the red price floor without waiting for the item to drop, updated seller shops, and a bump feature for sellers and shop owners.

Any sellers who wish to own a shop at a discount price may lock in before the updates are finished on 04/21/10. We are offering your own shop for only $149.99 for 2 years. That is approximately $0.20 and includes unlimited free listings on your own page exactly like our pognu homepage. It also includes all hosting, site updates, free advertising on our shops page and site updates as they occur. So if you are a seller and would like to skip listing fees and have your own web presence this would be a great time to jump on board.

Thank you. We are currently under going some changes and adding a featured auction section to the site. All of our auctions are still in the queue and the programmer is working to have them rotate in as we speak. Look for the changes to be finalized by mid-week. I am also adding a credits section for users. These will be used by sellers and buyers alike to list featured auctions, reveal the auctions lowest price and even bump their favorite auctions to the front of the queue so users and sellers do not have to wait for their auction to start.

Other than a few cosmetic changes and an updated video, Pognu.com is ready to go again. We have added several new features to our site. We now have a Feature Auction. Users have the ability to to ""Reveal" the lowest price an auction will drop rather than sit and wait for it to drop. Users can "Bump" any auction to the front of the queue at any time rather than wait for an auction to work it's way all the way through the queue. These two features require credits which cost 10 cents. Credits may also be earned for free by referring others to Pognu.com. We have eliminated all buyer fees from Pognu.com as well, so it is now totally free to buy and sell using our site. The only

Hi Monika. Right now we have several new features which require credits and are planning on adding more in the very near future. As a seller, credits are used to list your auction in the featured area. Obviously having a featured auction benefits the seller because of its higher visibility on the page and the website focus is, of course, on that featured auction.

Buyer can also use credits. A credit can be used to reveal the price of any live featured auction. Just select Reveal and the auctions price floor will be shown to you. Another use for credits is to "Bump" auctions. Lets say you are interested in an item which is located last in the queue. Why wait through 15 auctions for the one you want to go live? Just select Bump and it will bump to the next item up for auction!

Shop owners may also use credits to list their shop, feature it and bump it to the front of the shop list.

Again we have several other features on the way for credits as well. Credits can be purchased for only 10 cents each and these features only require 1 credit to use. Credits may also be earned for free by simply logging in to the site, and going the referral area and referring friends and family. Every friend or family member you enter will earn you a credit.

I like the "bump auctions" feature. I waited a week for the Linky bids auction to go live. :smilielol5:
I might list a few things I won that I have no use for.
Pognu...I really love your site and I hope lots of sellers start listing there. I think it could be a huge hit. I just wish someone would buy that wedding dress already!!! lol

Hahaha, yeah that wedding dress has been there since they opened. If I were the owner I'd be offended that no one likes my style! LMAO!

Ed... I emailed ya 'bout them LV bags. You can respond here if you like. Thanks.

LOL, that wedding dress.... The ruby, and rare black sapphire are always on the top there too. But hey, as people start to list new items things will begin to change. I am going to add the bump feature to the regular actions at some point in the future as well.

As I mentioned via Email to EllaJames there, I have contacted the owner of the LV bags but had negative results. I did my research and from what I have seen, they are NOT authentic and should not be advertised as such. I will be sending a mass email to current members in the next few days once I have all the feature auction changes completed. If these items are not fixed within 24 hrs from receipt of the email, those items will be deleted. I do not have a problem with people listing those items as a hand bag or an mp2 player, just do not advertise them as the brand name.

I appreciate everyone's positive feedback, thank you. I would like to keep it totally free to buy and sell, and allow people to earn credits in various ways to keep things fresh. If you have any comments or ideas please let me know because I am always thinking of ways to better the site and appreciate any input.

Please tell others about our site, and our products will begin to increase which will make the site alot of fun!

Thanks!

Ed

Sure, as a seller you will use these credits to list your items a s a Feature Item on the top of our homepage. You may use credits to bump your auctions or your favorite auctions to the front of the queue as a buyer or seller. You can use credits to reveal the lowest price an auction will fall to before it ends to get a leg up on the competition and know how much you can expect the auction to fall to. You can find more information regarding these credits at our website in the Buy Sell section of our website at (http://pognu.com/sellInfo.php).

Pognu has added a new type of auction to allow users to spend their earned or purchased credits, and we need your help to test out the system!

These "Knockout Auctions" will include only Pognu listed items. Users will vote for the item they want to go live next using credits and bid in a similar fashion as a penny auction. Winners only pay shipping costs.

We are also working on a brand new auction for penny auction sites to list their bid packs, these are called Turbo Bid Auctions and are going to be extremely fast paced (lasting only 2 minutes each auction). Users will decide which auctions go live and when, so Penny Auction site owners, be prepared to have your bids listed early to get a jump on the competition.

Turbo Bid Auctions should be live within 2 weeks, so please keep your eyes open.
