Give me your opinion based in auctions you have done or maybe in auctions with stuff that you bought.. is it worth make an auction Gallery Featured and pay 19$? it makes your item sell for more money and have more advertising?
Let me know what you think about this subject.

I have a few ideas of bizarre things to sell and i want to understand if it's worth invest 19$ ;)

Thanks

Gallery Featured is not worth it. Feature Plus is. If you dont do feature plus your item will be pages back since most others do it.

I almost always do the FP as well...I also made the mistake of checking the FPG box, and after a day of asking eBay why it wasn't showing up in the FP section that I paid for, I realized what I had done and eBay was nice enough to fix it for the ditz!!!! :hmph:

I think it really depends on what you are trying to sell. On the diaper pin, we decided to go ahead and do the feature in two categories, which doubled our fees of course, so it was around $50 to list that one auction. BUT, it was on pulse within a couple days (back when I didn't even know what the pulse was, I had to google it lol).

I truly believe, that had we just done a standard listing, it wouldn't have received a fraction of the attention it got.

NOW, on the other hand, I've listed 2 things on featured myself. One met reserve and I got $255 for it, and the other did not meet reserve at all :( ($39.95 just to cover my expenses)

either way you look at it is expensive. depends how you want to be notice so to speak,the fees are out rageous but if you sell it will be worth it. I go with the feature gallery makes sense and if you list in two catagory the fees hurt they double.

I have to disagree...featured Gallery did nothing for me for the price...I don't even know what the heck it is suppose to do...what is it on the front page or something??? I don't know, but Featured Plus works for me!!!
