Thinking over this some more, my re-vote would be to discontinue the auctions, reasons being:
- for plants, most sellers want to sell immediately and get out the door ASAP
- most buyers want to buy today, not next week... and get the plants ASAP
- most sellers have an idea of the price they want and can state up front what it is
- if there is a need for a quick and dirty knock down auction, then PM is good enough, failing that Aquabid does the job.
The one failure of Aquabid, in my opinion, is that it has no Buy It Now feature. Many sellers want to sell immediately for a known price, many buyers want to buy it now rather than wait.
Does this input swing the vote? I originally voted to continue the auctions but feel otherwise now.
