    PokerOwned Ebay?

    One of those things.. if I spend the time and money to build it, will it get used?

    Rivdee had a thought:

    Lets say I have 10 lock I wanna sell. I set a baseline price, length of time for auction and bid increment (50 pts, 100 pts, etc.).

    Bidder escrows the points as they go along (make it clear that once they escrow they can't withdraw IF they are the top bidder - if you're out bid your points should be refunded back to the account).

    Here's the catch - too many times in the marketplace does the advertiser of the item either not trade it (thereby creating these dumb issues) or lost it at the tables. For this to work, somehow there has to be an account to trade it too (this isnt mandatory but would make it run smoother).



    Next week I plan to do some upgrades, I think I will do the middle man upgrade for SURE (Anything that helps screw over scammers I want to add).

    With that said, if we do this auction style ebay marketplace, will people ACTUALLY use it
    "And Shepherds we shall be. For thee, my Lord, for thee.
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
    In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."

    I think this is an excellent idea, but I am not understanding exactly how this would work. Where would the funds go?

    I would use it, do the person doing the auction have to escrow whatever they are auctioning? Any like protection against getting scammed like ebay has if they dont have to escrow? That way both sides are safe, maybe it can be one of the "Middle Man" job?

    Middle man and pokerowned ebay are 2 different things :|

    yeah I know but was wondering if you could somehow have some type of escrow for both sides, I understand you have one for the points from the buyer, but what about the seller escrowing also?

    Or is it up to the buyer to take the risk?

    i think in order for the ebay to be added it u should be mandatory to escrow the money somehow....but the middle man would eliminate a most of the problems ppl are having then they would be no need for the ebay unless u make it a once a week or 2 times a week thing....like say FRIDAY NIGHT POBAY from this time to this time and that way it would get used...just a thought
