Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We honestly had no idea. Our Designer claimed this logo was one of his best ever. We agree. But we will redesign and change the logo. Again, thank you very much. It will be much easier to change now, not a year from now.

Just to let you know, probably a good idea so people don't think you are affiliated with stickybids. They haven't had the best reviews. But, if you decided not to change, there are no legal ramifications as stickybids did not buy the exclusive rights to that frog from istockphoto...nor did you. Oh, and welcome to PAW! :)

why have auctions that start in 17 days? seems pointless to pay for the script, the data, and advertise like crazy, but not have any auctions until nearly a month later. everyone will forget about your site before those auctions even start.

Hi Hiddenmoose,
We do understand your point. We are trying to get our name out there in the very large world of PA's. We want people to have time to find our site, sign up ahead of time and compare our site with others. We have a newsletter that we will use to remind our users of our first auctions end time. March 8th at 6pm EST.
Thanks,
The Bidit Team

We are on the same page. That site looks to be kind of low on users. To bad, it looked like a nice site. Thanks for the Welcome.

Hi there,
Just to be very ,very clear. We are in no way associated with Stickybids. As far as the Who is issue, that is a business decision. We believe it's more important to be an upstanding, honest business, not who's name is on it. We choose to have personal privacy.
Thank You for your interest,
The Bidit Team

I would like to post a few comments and shoot an inquiry to Bidit.co. First, I would like to comment that it appears that all bidding activity seems balanced and fair on this website. They offer auctions only two days a week, so far it seems on Friday and Saturday evening. I've had a decent bidding experience, but have yet to receive any items. My question to Bidit.co is: why does it take 4-6 weeks to ship a won item? The penny auction industry is so tumultuous now I find it hard to continue investing in a company if I have outstanding items. I understand that you have 4-6 weeks in your terms and conditions, but wonder why other penny auction companies of comparable size can ship items the next day. I certainly appreciate the fact that you don't charge your winners final cost of the item or shipping, but in the same light I wouldn't mind paying a few extra bucks if it would ensure my item would make it to me in a timely manner. 4-6 weeks just seems like an eternity. Other than the shipping, you have good customer service and a decent site. Hopefully I'll receive some shipping update notifications in the near future as I have wins from early May. Thanks for listening.

-Cemetery

P.S. Any PAW members receive their wins from this company yet?

This site is Very Good. Shipping takes 6 weeks. But it always arrives. Customer service is top notch.

Bidit has stopped sending me my wins. Many are now > 7 Weeks old and some 10 weeks old. No response to emails are coming. They used to be very prompt once.

Bidit are you listening!!!

With big names still bidding on this site, I am assuming that site is doing very good and shipping items. Assuming that I somehow didn't get into Bidit's bad books (in spite of leaving good reviews), please be aware that they have stopped replying to my emails and stopped shipping items. So this has started with this site. Some items are within 8 to 12 weeks range. The items I am waiting on..... There are few more but they are yet to hit Bidit's published shipping times of 4-6 weeks.

Yes to your first part of the question. I never mentioned its worth 25$. Well the site does post and ship some great items. But looks like has started not shipping to only me for no apparent reason!!

Just checked Bidit's Facebook page. Well looks like I am not the only person. They are not shipping to others known names too.
