I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Integrate an escrow service

    I suggest that Sitepoint integrate an escrow service into the marketplace. Something like the way rentacoder has. For a Buyer, they would have to deposit funds before they could bid on any item. This requires alot of think, but it's just an idea that I think should be considered.

    • Restore listing view counters

      Marketplace 1.0 had a view counter associated with every listing. Users have asked to have this feature restored to Marketplace 2.0.

      • Add Monthly Revenue AND Profit to the search listings

        It would make it easier to find sites that are of interest if we could see the Monthly Revenue and Profit in the search listings. So if we are looking for sites with certain levels of revenue and profit, we can easily see it. I look at too many listings only to find that they are making no money or too little. It would be great to be able to sort the listings by these values as well.

          We are currently working on a major revamp of the Marketplace, where you will be able to filter your view by any aspect of an auction/listing, including revenue and profit figures. Stay tuned!

        • BBCode or HTML option for formatting auction descriptions

          Everyone time a seller lists an auction they have to reformat and recolour their listing text. This is incredibley wasteful.

          Allow us to use basic BBCode (color, italic, bold) so we can roll out new listings without duplicate effort.

            A work-around that is currently available is to disable JavaScript when creating a listing. The rich text editor for the auction description will revert to a plain textarea into which you can type (or paste) HTML code.

          • Don’t allow deletion of info after auction close

            From a buyer's perspective, if I lose an auction, I find it helpful to see what the final selling price was of the site I didn't win. It helps me prepare for bidding on similar type sites. However, a number of sellers remove listing information after the auction closes. In an open auction, this information should be available.

              We have planned a feature that will allow the auction holder to make a completed auction “private”, which will remove it from the view of users not logged into the Marketplace. This will leave it visible to the bidders.

            • Bring Back Domain Name Auctions

              The previous domain auctions worked - as we can set a price / buy it now etc.

              Now all the domains are listed in "domain classified section" - the term "classified" sounds cheap and nasty - you cannot set prices and people cannot place bids etc aprt from messenging.

              I use sitepoint to sell my premium domains and now i have to share the section with thecatsatonthe mat.info - either bring the domian section or a premium domain section. and if you are not them take the section from the marketplace listing!
