Build a Reputation: Leave and Receive Feedback!

| How To | August 2, 2013

An important thing to have in the Blog Shop world is a good reputation! Here is a quick tutorial on how to leave feedback, and check the feedback of a user that you are doing business with.

All user feedback has to be approved by the admins of this site for now.

1) After you have purchased an item from someone go back to that listing(or even another listing from the same user). On the right side click the “Poster” tab on the contact form. If you are on mobile, just scroll down until you see the “Contact” box.

Dont Forget to “Mark Sold” all items that have sold.

| Tip | June 10, 2013

Don’t forget to mark your items as sold! This will help others to not waste their time contacting you and save you the hassle of having to tell them it is sold.

Some people like to delete posts after they sell, but you really should mark them as sold so they can stay up until they expire to help build your reputation. Just a suggestion ;) !

I’ve covered how to do it in a previous post called HOW TO: Edit your existing ads, mark as SOLD, etc.

But here is a brief explanation on how to do it anyway:

iPhone Users: PLEASE READ!

| Errors, How To, New Feature, Tip | May 13, 2013

So, if you didn’t already know, Flash and Apple Mobile products don’t go hand in hand. We have enabled the Flash photo uploader so that our users can upload big files(up to 5MB) and not get a browser time out. This fix is awesome, and really adds value and functionality to the site! 

We still love you iPhone users so we came up with a simple solution to allow you guys to still post ads to the blog shop from your phone! 

When you get to the bottom of the ad listing page where it asks you to upload photos….

FIXED: Error when posting ad (due to file upload)

| Errors | May 11, 2013

OK, so we had the flash file uploader disabled to accommodate iPhone users, but because of this, some people’s internet/browsers would time out when trying to upload multiple large photos all at once. 

The flash uploader, which is now enabled, will upload each photo you select, one at a time. I ran a bunch of tests uploading five 5MB photos to one ad listing, and it worked flawless! Everyone that was having issues, give it a try and report back.
