Newsletter - July 26, 2011
Hello GameGavel Community,
GameGavel is now subscription based. What does this mean for you? As a buyer, it means nothing. You are free to shop on GameGavel and bid or buy from a great group of sellers.
But if you are an existing seller or anticipate selling, then this is very good news! We have done away with costly and unpredictable transaction fees and have replaced them with two levels of monthly subscriptions. There are no hidden fees or additional costs. You can choose between one of two subscription levels and start selling! You can also now use Paypal or Credit Cards to pay your subscription, too!
Our two levels of subscriptions are as follows:
Silver Subscription - $1.99/Month=20 Listings per month. For smaller, less frequent sellers.
Gold Subscription - $7.99/Month=Unlimited listings and sales. Sell all you can for one predictable, low monthly cost.
The next time you login to your member’s area, at the top you will see the two subscription options. Click on your choice and you will be taken to fill out the GameGavel/Paypal Recurring Subscription form. Fill that out and you will be good to go. If you do not use Paypal, then email us at email@example.com and someone will contact you to set up your seller account with a credit card.
All sellers who purchased or were gifted a free seller account after our launch in 2008 will still use the site for free so this change will not make any difference for you.
Also, since this change is taking affect mid billing cycle you may have one final credit card billing for existing transaction fees to date. Once this final payment comes out, this system will no longer be around and you will only be charged your monthly new, subscription amount. If you have any questions about this please let us know.
Seller Case Study – RETROGAMECITY
We recently had a new seller, RetroGameCity, move his store from Ebay to GameGavel.com. Be sure to check out his items – all imports from Japan! The cool thing is he is selling tons of stuff. One thing that is making him successful; he is taking some of the money he is saving selling on GameGavel to advertise his store using Google Adwords. He has also linked his website, http://www.retrogamecity.com to his GameGavel seller store page. He was spending over $1000/month on Ebay (now he is only spending $8/month) so he is saving a tremendous amount of money selling on GameGavel. Feel free to message him through his seller store front and ask him any questions you may have about what he is doing to be successful selling on GameGavel!
Advertise Your GameGavel Seller Store
If you are a seller and want to advertise your GameGavel store consider purchasing a cheap banner that will be featured in our header or footer. Or choose other types of cheap advertising we offer. Click here and you can see what you will pay to promote your store and the variety of ad spots we offer. Again, we feel this is very inexpensive and will help drive additional traffic to your store. http://buysellads.com/buy/detail/59664
GameGavel Company Store
We are also excited to tell you that GameGavel is now selling new releases and popular titles for the current generation consoles. Our selection is small but growing! If you are looking for titles for your PS3, XBOX360, Wii or handhelds please remember to check the GameGavel homepage to see the new additions to our store. We always feature FREE SHIPPING on all our Products! Check out our store listings right here: http://www.gamegavel.com/sites/gamegavel/
As you can see, there are a lot of changes going on here at GameGavel. We believe the subscription system will benefit all sellers by giving you all a very predictable and inexpensive way to sell your video games. We hope this will entice other sellers who are fed up with Ebay’s high and unpredictable transaction fees to come over here to set up shop.
As always, with website upgrades and changes there are bound to be a few unexpected bugs or glitches. If you witness anything strange please let us know.
