Newer members and visiting non-members may not know about the advertising deal we have with eBay. The major portion of the funding needed to keep this site running comes from commissions from winning bids placed on eBay where the bidder got to the auction through a link provided by Oldgas.com.
Here's how to help:
* Click on the links listed on the "Right Now on eBay" auctions shown at the top of the page of several forums here as well as on our Auctions page. Click on "Auctions" at the top of this page.
* Use the eBay search form shown at the bottom right of most Shop Talk forum pages.
Here's the fine print:
* Oldgas.com only gets a referral commission when the bidder who wins the auction, came to the auction from one of the links mentioned in the above paragraph.
* Direct links within a forum message don't count as a referral. Oldgas.com gets no commission from those links.
We sincerely thank buyers who browse eBay by searching with the eBay search form we provide and clicking on the "Right Now on eBay" links we provide. It may take an extra step, but it makes all the difference helping to "keep the lights on here."
We really appreciate it when sellers put their auction numbers in forum topics about their auction items. Bidders can copy the number and paste it into the eBay search search form at the bottom of Shop Talk pages.
I have a question for you, that might of been already answered from above. I want to know if a member copies the auction # and inserts it on said page at the box on the bottom. Pulls up the auction, bids $9.99 and then puts a snipe in later. Do you receive the commission on the ending price with the snipe? If the answer is No, seems an awful lot of members use the snipe option and you're losing money here. What about setting something up with ebay, with our memberships ID's, that anything we bid on you get the commission ? Another question, what happens if a member pulls the auction up, puts it on his/her watch list then bids later, with or without a snipe ?
Thanks for your Time, Doug
