    You will only get 50 free credits for 1st auction you list and nothing after that except for the points that your item pulls in.
    Cool, thanks. How about this: are you penalized if you list something and it doesn't sell?
    Example: I list an alarm clock, and I want the bidding to start at 50 credits. Nobody bids the starting 50 credits.
    Do I get negative credits?...?
    :/

    No, you don't get negative credits, you can have it relisted or when you list it, just check off 'automatically relist" in the advanced setting, You won't go negative if no one bids though. It just didn't sell, just like ebay bidding

    Make sure you charge for shipping, you don't want to get just 50 credits and have to pay the shipping for them too!

    When you list an auction, you get 15 bonus credits by offering free shipping and 5 bonus credits by adding a photo.

    Here are some Rules too, Auction Rules - Listia.com

    If your item doesn't sell the first time around, it will probably sell eventually, just relist it. Set a reserve price for each auction, that way you make sure to get more than 1 credit for each item.

    Thanks for all the pertinent info! This is really interesting!

    Hmmmm... I'll have to look thru the site and see what items I have that are similar = see what the final bid amounts are. Just for the heck of it, I looked up a wii = last check, it was up over 2000 credits...

    I just looked... you need your "seller wings" badge before you can get that bonus for each auction.

    Just click the "Show Advanced Options" next to the LIST button as shown in the picture I attached below, then put in starting bid 0-100 and choose the number of days for your auction.

    You only get the bonus points after a certain amount of auctions/feedback.

    I saw on the bottom of the listia website they added a "jobs" link. They are looking for moderators to help out.

    Did you see one of the reward auctions? Refer 3 friends and you get to bid on an 8 ft pool table w/ free ship to anywhere in US. WOW. I'm after that one!
