Soul Source - Offers feature cover

Soul Source Select Offers

Introduction

Select Offers is a revamped feature that has just been re-added to the Soul Source site and will be running along side the existing sales forums

The previous version (up last year for a few months) was found wanting due to a poor auction format.

This  revamped version shifts the focus from an fixed basic auction system to a more flexible 'offers' system

Basically a 'Make an offer'  feature - a basic inhouse system designed to offer members a more structured version of the "open to offers" sales procedure...

Which should now offer to all members a more structured formal method of buying/selling records, that offers features that go beyond those offered by the soul source sales forums.

Features

The feature takes advantages of the many built in Soul Source features

Multiple scans/images - can be added via the attachment feature (same method as per forum post - jpg, gif or png format)

Sound clips - mp3s can be added via the attachment feature (note only mp3s at moment please)

A more info/description section - a dedicated place for detailed info such as grading, payments, postal/shipping details etc

Questions - a question to seller section

Offer System - an inhouse 'make an offer' system

Forum - each offer item will be auto posted into the sales forum 

Exposure - social sharing features, banner system and more to help both keep members informed and up to date

Notifications/Follow - all sellers/buyers can use the notification system to be informed on updates to listings/offers etc Settings and choice of notifications can be set if wish via profile settings

Sellers Info - members reputation, feedback, etc etc all show on the item page

Listing Fee

Offers is open to all members to list however have adopted a listing fee policy for this feature
The reasoning behind the listing fee is threefold

  • Assist the site in achieving full self-supporting status to try to cover all the various site costs and allow improvements
  • To try and ensure that the listings are vibrant and worthwhile, having a fee will hopefully avoid bulk block listings, over pricing and repeated posts/bumps etc
  • Validation of Accounts - By using fees it does means all sellers need to pay via a paypal account or credit card, which may lessen the concerns regarding unknown sellers identities.

Cost/Method

Current listing fee for this opening period is a special opening offer of just a flat £1 per item
Payment is via paypal/credit card and is integrated into the listing submission procedure automatically


Future

It is aimed to be a complimentary feature to all the current sales features we offer, and as with all features as the use and such develops so will follow improvements and new features

when first chosen I was on a 'car' type theme for the cover images of site features - as it also featured a shop it sort of fitted in with the new feature. :thumbsup:
