“Best Auction Site On The Web”

published 18/03/2001

Massive Exposure. No Fees.

Fees Will Be Eventually Introduced.

I have used a number of the auction sites on the web, such as QXL, Ebay, Freeserve and Aucland but it has to be said that Yahoo! wins hands down. I have been using Yahoo! for approximately 3 months now and I am really glad to have done so. The website is easy to navigate and even easier to use...

“Yippee Yahoo Auctions”

published 10/06/2001

free

search options are a bit weak

This is basically the only online auction site i use, for one reason and one reason only, it is free to sell things where as all other sites (that i have come across make a charge) For the Seller things could not be easier, register (which is free) and browse the categories or search for...

“Great auction site”

Yahoo Auctions UK & Ireland is run by the well known search engine Yahoo. Its similar to other auction site ebay.co.uk but unlike ebay who charge you for listing items its free with Yahoo Auctions. But the only problem is that you will find that you items on Yahoo Auctions don’t always get...

“wahoo 2 auctions on yahoo”

published 05/06/2001

get what you want a fair ammount of the time

there is a few but it is mostly a good site

Yahoo! Auctions is not a bad site, but it tries to be too much like eBay, and that's just not going to cut it these days. Yahoo! Auctions, like eBay, offers tons of categories, user ratings, a notification service that you can set to e-mail you when certain items up put up for bid, and a good...

“Under The Hammer”

published 31/03/2002

It's Free, Easy To Use

Not a big user base

One of the things the internet has taught me is that one man's crap is another man's treasure. That's where online auctions have come into play, when I think of all the stuff I've sold over the years I'm also inclined to think of how much more money I could have got by selling it via an auction...

“find some great bargains”

really cheap stuff if you look for it

people not sending you money when they have bid on...

I could spend hours on auction websites, maybe it’s because I’m nosey and like to see what other people are selling but I think it’s more than likely to be because I’m a bargain hunter! I think that Yahoo Auctions is the best online auction website that I have found, I...

I must admit i do like to buy a good bargain when i spot one and Yahoo auctions are certainly a good place to start. I have been using Yahoo auctions for sometime now both buying and selling. The best thing about Yahoo auctions is that they are totally free whether you are buying or selling. It...

Free - easy to use

Be wary of fraud/time wasters

Yahoo auctions is a well-known on-line auction service in the UK. The premise is relatively simple - once you are signed up as a registered user, you can bid for any of the items listed, or list items of your own for sale. Online auctions are very popular, and the volume of traffic through the...

“bargain hunters paradise”

published 15/08/2001

great bargains, many catergories, free to use

can become addicted

Oh no, not another place for me to find bargains! I am a self confessed bargain hunter. I can't remember now why I first went to yahoo but since then I am constantly there searching the thousands of items for a bargain. Yahoo auctions is part of yahoo.com and can be accessed through their home...

???? cant think of any ??????

Well I have got to admit it, I was really impressed with yahoo, I have heard so many bad reports but until you check it out for yourself you wont believe how good it is and how many different sectors you can access, I went on once to check out my horoscope and since then I have never been of the...

“I'LL STICK TO EBAY”

published 20/04/2002

Free service, good range of items

Not as efficient as Ebay

Well, there are a lot of online auction sites around now and most people are probably well aware of Ebay as one of the largest and most well known. However, among Yahoo's many different services they also have an auction site which I have tried briefly but am not so taken with. The one factor...

“Simple, Fast and Reliable”

published 24/02/2001

Fast, Simple to use, Highly configurable.

None that I can think of.

I have used this free service for over two years now and have found it to be a marvelous service. It is very simple to use, with help and advice available at every stage. For searching for goods the site has two options. Either click through category listings until you get to the area of product...

Good

Easy to use, very fulfilling, money to be made.

Phoney bidders, contact problems.

I have been using Yahoo Auctions for a few months now, and I must admit I have enjoyed most of the experience (and made a great deal of money out of it!). So you may wonder why I give this average rating. Its because I'm sick and tired of people messing me around all the time. I'm a very active...

"*Another* auction site" you may say? Well, this one is different; this one, my friend, does NOT charge you to list items unlike Ebay and fsauctions and QXL which do. Yahoo, offers a huge number of catagories and more often that not you'll be able to find what you were looking for (and probably a...

bad buyers and the above if it is true

Word of warning to anybody who has currently or gets a high rating due to selling on the auction site. I got a letter this morning from the Inland Revenue asking to ring them regarding a tax issue. So i rang up to find that it was about my selling of MY cd's on yahoo auctions. Questions asking...
