Finding and buying extraordinary items with your phone just got easier!
If you shop Bonanza with your smart phone, you'll find that it's now faster, more streamlined, and just the right size. We've updated our site to better handle our growing traffic from mobile devices
What's different for mobile?
If you visit Bonanza with a mobile phone, you'll see a different-looking site than if you were using a non-mobile computer. Some of the highlights include:
Smaller, less busy header. It just has the essentials so you don't have to swipe so far to find what you're looking for.
Larger fonts. Squint less and avoid zooming just to find out how much something is.
Bigger buttons and links. Now, adult-sized fingers can tap the right link, rather than mashing all over hoping for the best.
Just the shopping. When you're on the go, you want a streamlined site that helps you get what you need, fast.
Why all this love for mobile users?
First, we mentioned above that our traffic from mobile sites has increased: in fact, it's nearly doubled from this time last year. We can't ignore that kind of growth. Especially when all projections are that mobile growth will only increase.
What's more, we've noticed that users the most successful mobile sites give the user many of the elements we note above (large fonts, extra space). We want our sellers to experience the full benefit of their buyers, whether those buyers arrive via mobile or not.
Any mobile updates for sellers?
It's on our list! We are excited about future mobile updates that will make it easier to snap pictures from your phone to post items. We are also eager to allow checking and responding to bmail in the future. However, for the time being, there is a link at the bottom that lets you switch back to the non-mobile version, where you can get done what you need to get done.
What else is new?
Our programming team is dedicating this week to fixing bugs and adding some of the most requested features our buyers and sellers have requested over the last few months. Stay tuned over the coming days for more exciting updates.
