Description

The listing, iPod Touch 8GB has ended.

This is a tiered rewards auction! That means the item will change based on the current bid amount. The higher it goes, the better it gets. But, you'll only know what it is once it hits the next level! Check out the details on the side for the different levels and how many credits it takes to reach each tier. Will ship the item free in the US.

It's alright, but so far, I would immediately relist both items that have been posted. I would be more likely to take a high-stakes gamble if I could pick an item from 2 options on each tier or something. I figure I've wanted about half of your rewards options so far. :)

I like it! Cool idea! Tier 2 item is iPod Shuffle 4GB. Anyone know what the Tier 1 item was?

I like the idea! It's much more fun not knowing what we will end up with!

ya we did it this way so that you guys know what the tiers are so you'll never get screwed. you always know what the current item is and what it costs for the item to change. if you don't want the item to change you would never bid up into the next tier.

Yeah, agreed... this is cool

Another cool thought: what if each tier had a choice of 2-3 items, and only the first bidder who crosses into a new tier threshold gets to pick which item it will be?

This gives an incentive to be that bidder who explores the next tier.

ya someone else mentioned maybe have a couple options in each tier anyway and when an auction ends the winner can pick anything in that tier.

Come on, somebody bump us into the next tier!

I'm sensing a theme here. iTunes giftcard, iPod, different iPod... I have a shuffle, iPod, & iPhone already, so I'll bid again when it's not yet another music device.

any suggestions on some other themes or stuff you'd like to see? we have some things written down, but will always take input. =)

Well, I'm still drooling over that HDTV and damning my slow connection on my iPhone that let me get outbid. Um, just off the top of my head: netbook, camera (Canons are awesome), thinkgeek, gas, Amazon, GGP Shopping Mall, or Target giftcards (something other than iTunes), GPS, clock/radio/ipod dock type thing, an awesome speaker set, new releases (Windows 7, Apple tablet, Xbox 360 Project Natal, new video games, highly anticipated products), Roomba, gaming headphones/mouse, Rock Band or Guitar Hero band set, Bluetooth hands-free headset, a projector, domestic flight (Jetblue?), "pick any xbox 360 game" and other auctions that involve choice.

Do you have any stats on your users? That could guide rewards choices too.
Sep 3rd, 2009 at 12:39:37 PM PDT by

we currently don't have too much information right now which is why we're trying to list stuff almost anyone would want. thanks for those suggestions! I've saved them for the future. =)

Definately with goatwoodward on this one... he's got some great ideas there! I don't like the idea of gift cards though but that's just me. =) GPS would be awesome though, as would a projector.

Interesting idea :) tiered auction looks like blind date :) By the way, do you ship items overseas? let's say to the UK :) thank you in advance.
Sep 3rd, 2009 at 4:32:03 PM PDT by

ah sorry for now we can only ship to the US. maybe when our UK office opens. =)

I'm a she, which is why I want Target giftcards, for some new clothes. :) I guess giftcards do kind of defeat the point, I mean it's almost like cashing in your points. Then again, you can guarantee you'll get something you want.

ya gift cards a little boring, but probably the most useful.

some cool things you could make into auction are [ Red Laser Bluetooth Keyboard ] AWESOME! Um, anything from thinkgeek.com :D

Also, any kind of new and interesting electronics usually get people's attentions. Like the Multi-Colored LED LIghtbulb

how about some Listia Rewards products for cars such as 5k HID Headlight kit, neon light bars, paddle shifts/steering wheels, decals, air freshners, subwoofer/speakers for cars, rims, spoilers

Do you think it will ever be possible for users to do tiered auctions? Most people will do free shipping after a certain number of credits, and other people would probably just have fun with prizes.
Sep 6th, 2009 at 10:11:15 AM PDT by

haha you could probably imagine the problems we'd have if we allowed users to post tiered auctions. imagine tier 1 = shuffle, tier 2 = nano, tier 3 = old shoe. we'll probably have to restrict this just for us for the time being. =)
Sep 6th, 2009 at 11:03:11 AM PDT by

I'd bid ( 1 ) on an old shoe...
Sep 6th, 2009 at 12:29:51 PM PDT by

Well, making the additional options transparent would defeat the purpose. But you could allow one type of auction where the winner gets everything, mystery box style. And another type of auction where the winner gets a choice of any listed tier. Either way you do it, you are pretty much bidding on the current tier and hoping the next tier is an upgrade.
Sep 6th, 2009 at 2:48:08 PM PDT by

true, but someone could still get pretty screwed if a higher tier doesn't match with a nicer item.

Oooh 8GB iPod Touch... will this be the new one that's going to be released tomorrow (the 9th)?
Sep 8th, 2009 at 9:50:48 AM PDT by

we didn't know new ones would be out. we'll have to take a look, but as of now this auction is for the current 8GB touch.

There will probably be new iPods announced tomorrow, that's what Craig means, but they will not be released for a while.
