How it all works
Store seller or standard seller ?
We offer a standard seller or store seller option which can be chosen at the time of registration. If you initially register as a standard seller you then have the option of upgrading at a later time to the store seller option.
There are no Fees for store seller or standard seller so it is simply a matter of choosing which option best suits your needs
A store seller option provides a free store front which can be viewed by clicking ' Store' in seller info on the listing page.
The store front shows all the store sellers products and categories in an organised presentation which allows buyers to easily view all the items you have for sale..
Selling for the first time
Potential bidders may ask questions To which you may reply. the questions will appear at the top of the page in the section titled 'Messages' there will be a red number appear that indicates there is an unanswered questtion
Block unwanted bidders
As a seller you have the option of adding unwanted bidders I.D. to a block bidder list which blocks that bidder from bidding on any of the sellers listings.
Sellers may not cancel or remove bids placed on a listing but if you see bidding from a bidder that you are not happy with then place that bidder in the block bidder function and then that bidder cannot continue bidding on that listing and that bidders max bid will no longer work.
First things first - there are no fees for buyers.
Registration is required for bidding and buying on Kipple
Shop by category can be used or the standard search bar and the search filters can refine the search to specifics within categories and combine with just auction types or just Buy now or all which is both Buy now and Auction.
If you have a question for a buyer then on all listing types it is possible to message the seller through an active listing.
There are auctions that are based on bidding and also buy now type auctions, some of which will have make an offer.
There are 'Buy now with Immediate payment required' for these types of listings it will be required that payment is made before the listing can end.
There are 'Buy now without Immediate payment required' these type of listings allow the buyer to use 'Buy now' without paying and the listing will end allowing the buyer to pay later.
The 'Buy now' type listings allow sellers the option of letting buyers' make an offer' the limit is three offers for each 'Buy now ' listing and the seller can make a counter offer for each offer made.
