BidMate Mark II

Looks the same as always - I would be happy if they changed the front page. What is great though is the speed - definitely faster than most, considering that was their greatest weakness.

Now the great thing - they are Australia's third biggest Auction site behind Ebay and the other site - and they are now completely free. No listing fees no final fees and you can even have a shop for free.
Free + very fast
same old front page


This site has great potential, some really nice items listed, lot better then the trash and treasure stuff on other sites, it looks a lot more pro.
Problems, as a seller,it's very hard to use, As they seem to want to do everything different it's very to just do something like send an invoice and contacting anyone throw this system is just not on .
Pretty sad I jointed a few months back and really wanted to see this one work.
great admin, some interesting stuff
as a seller hard to work out


I feel that the service itself is great, however.. or should I say unfortunately, the site setup doesn't show this.

The site can be overwhelming when you look at the front page, with a list of over a hundred categories being shown.
I feel they need to improve this part before they begin to take on competitors such as eBay or Oztion.

However, the site is an excellent idea and certainly one to keep bookmarked for future purchases as it is completely Australian owned and operated!
Large range of categories
Slowish site
Bad site design - categories are just clumped together


The site sucks, stick to the good ones where you can actually sell your stuff and get what it deserves.
Oztions is by far the best auction site you will find in Aus, stick to it, this one will never over take it.
It's free
Doesn't actually matter whether its free or not because there's not enough members to 1. make many sales 2. get the price your product deserves.

Sites layout is horrible

Site is very complex to use compared to the better auction sites like ebay or Oztions
