| | Reserve Price overrides Open Price
I'd like to run an auction where the opening price is "Best Offer" or $0, but I'd like the item to have a reserve price of say $250 and a buy it now price of $350.
Currently with the new version I can't do it. Why? Because it immediately takes the Reserve price and copies that value into the opening price field. So In my example above I get an auction with an opening price of $250 and a Buy it now of $350.
The problem is that I don't know if that reserve is too high or not, we actually had an auction just like this and despite getting numerous views we got ZERO bids, I think in part to the fact that the reserve price was immediately known because it became the opening price. I would rather have had someone start bidding at say $10 and be told that they have the high bid but that they haven't reached the reserve price yet so they need to bid higher if they want to get the item in question.
This creates more excitement and more bidding and is also identical to the way Ebay works.
Any fix for this?
One other question, I also have the ReviewPost and in ReviewPost when you upload pictures and then look at a product listing you get the photos thumbnails which if you hover over them shows a magnifying glass which if you click on has an animated blow-up of the image, or you can click the supersize link. IN the Classifieds if you click on a thumbnail nothing happens, is the Classifieds broken or is it not supposed to work like ReviewPost does?
Thanks in Advance!
