A note from the CEO

Thank you so much to our sellers who have supported us year after year! I've seen a lot of stuff over the past 10 years. Well-funded marketplaces have come and gone. Amazon has set an increasingly high bar for buyer expectations and the need to earn repeat customers. eBay has upped their game with their increasingly ubiquitous product reviews.

It seems like one of the only things that hasn't changed is our commitment to helping ecommerce entrepreneurs build a sustainable business. I like to think that Bonanza has played a fundamental role in making life easier for sellers -- both on Bonanza and at our competitors. In 2008, we were the first to allow image cropping while posting an item. In 2009, we were the first to build a robust batch item editor. In 2012, we added the Advertising Broadcaster and with it, the ability to keep merchandise synced across marketplaces. In 2016, we introduced the Customer Marketing tool, a tool with unprecedented power to transform one-time buyers into repeat buyers. Many of these tools and ideas have since found their way onto other marketplaces.

We understand as well as anyone that it takes inspiration and hard work to build a thriving ecommerce business in the Age of Amazon, and we're committed to remaining the top destination for entrepreneurs who want to build a growing base of repeat customers. And we've got some damn exciting ideas in the hopper for the second half of 2018. With your support, we pledge to continue to find ways to innovate and continuously improve the vigor of the online merchant community.

    recently decided to try and make a go of it again and I am trying to bring other to this site to do the same. I always loved the employees and their sense of humor and decency and missed that on other platforms. i could be snide and get snide [not aimed at either me or them] and everyone got it and we had fun! I want to see Bonanza in the third market place spot of online retail and it can happen.I was going to answer someone but don’t see his post now but thoughts:
    I have been a buyer and seller for myself as well as buying for stores for a long time [like decades]. Silver has gone back to normal cost per ounce and sellers need to juggle to make the pieces they bought or made when it was obscene [while many of us just stopped selling it except when commissioned and paid ahead of time] Alot of big name excellent sellers and companies went down at that point in time [or had to radically cut back some losing multi store outlets] and are trying to kind of make a comeback and i will support them as well as myself. Most of what I have up now in silver is older but I have priced according to now and desirability. I am still dig a lot of silver plate until I can afford putting money out on sterling again but what I get in for sterling is once again going to be quality from Thailand along with the stones and people can tell that. Someone can have beautiful things and great designs but they price them out of the buying market unless there is a demand for something that fits into the latest thing. I know I couldn’t rely on Bonanza sales when I started and only had a few things up. Am back and still no bites but will work my other baskets and promo for here and hopefully will see some ripened fruit for my effort. It is really up to us and our efforts on getting our stores out there just like on Shopify and drive in the traffic, now there is more exposure and help. I have an odd irrepressible need to add good luck and make the odds ever be in your favor but probably just my headspace at the moment

    Happy Anniversary

    As a long time Bonanza user, but a non-time social media user, I don’t get a lot of sales.

    BUT, this is a super friendly marketplace with stellar customer support, easy listing, and good value. Keep up the good work!

    Congratulations to Adam on his prize package win!!!

    Cool animated picture of the staff. It looks like it was fun. Nice to hear from Bill, too.

    Can you give a sneak peek for one of those exciting ideas that are in the hopper for 2018, Bill? Or at the very least a tiny hint?

    So far, so good with Bonanza. I hope for a long future here. I hope Bonanza is able to compete well with Amazon. It’s hard to hold one’s own against a big company, but it seems Bonanza is willing to put the effort and time into it. I wish us all success here.

    Thank you, thank you. I was surprised when I saw yesterday that I was one of the “honorable mentions and would receive the Turbo Traffic Pack and item featured on Instagram.” Not sure exactly what it means or for how long but hopefully SALES. July 2nd will be my 3 MONTH ANNIVERSARY, so I AM NEW and still learning. I don’t do social media so I know sales will be slow. Have many items to list but having trouble finding the time for pictures and write up to get them listed. I am thankful – and happy. I am so glad I found BONANZA!

    Also new here, but selling on another site for a couple of years now, but that site is becoming less and less seller friendly. Now it is time put my eggs in another basket. I wish Bonanza a great future!
