I apologise for being behind in my game here.

I looked into creating an auction site for everyone myself but it was going to require a grant which could take up to a year to get. My friend suggested approaching existing auction sites and seeing if they would be willing to accomodate the doll world.

I visited many and all were willing to work with the doll world to build up a section for us. After much work and input from others it has been narrowed down to Uhippo site.

http://uhippo.com/

You can let customers and dolly friends know about this thru newsletters, websites & in your ME on ebay (post in your listings to check your ME page for exciting developments.

If we work togethor we CAN make this switch and bring our customers with us. Many have already gone over and set up an account.

If you truly want a good alternative to ebay, an option that looks as good, has great potential AND very reasonable fees join us in this move!!

Liz

I really like Uhippo.com I am a member on there, and I sure wish I knew a way that we could just attract all of the dolly world to convert to Uhippo. The fees are practically nothing compared to what we give to ebay.

Everyone, Please, go check it out. There are a few categories for dolls, and I know that if we ask for more that the site owner would be more than happy to create them for us.

Just sent out a site newsletter about this! If you didn't get that newsletter check your SPAM folder...if it is not there you may have clicked on the choice here in your account to NOT recieve newsletters, you might want to change that.

UHippo.com is now offering the doll world a $3 credit to start out with!!

Sign up if you haven't already done so then go up under the 'help', click on 'contact us' under the 'help' column and then write that you were referred by the doll world, me (Elizabeth Townsley), or a friend who has already signed up there, and you will be given a $3 credit. $3 goes far on UHippo.com...not so far if it were ebay!

Check it out and spread the word!! Lets stop giving Ebay all our money!! Why? So they can go to Las Vegas and gamble away a million dollars while being comped by the casinos with pent house lodgings and free food and extras...while we struggle at home to pay our bills, buy our supplies, and then sell on ebay...giving them more money to PLAY with! It is Time we keep more of our money for ourselves and our family!! This is a great alternative to Ebay and WE CAN as a community make that switch and bring our customers with us!!

I checked this site as well and am now a member, just need to find my way about. thankyou

I think it will help if we advertise the site amongst our dolly friends as well to get more of them interested and maybe move away from ebay and theit fees.

Absolutely!! It will take awhile for word to get out and I suspect most of us will continue to use ebay at the same time as UHIPPO until traffic and sales pick up at UHippo. I think it is a good thing that we all will be using ebay at this point in the transition because we can all post the UHippo link in our 'me' pages and put in our ebay auctions for our visitors to visit our 'me' pages for exciting developments...thus bringing our customers with us to UHippo!! WOOHOO!

Well, I have been a member there since day one. I have recently listed 2 of my car seats that are both selling. I have in my "About Me" page on ebay all about this new site "Uhippo" Auction site. I also posted about it on Facebook and also sent out notice to my mailing list. I have had way over 100 hits on both. I do plan on listing a couple of my car seats and infant seats on ebay as well as some on "Uhippo" this weekend. It is "working" for me. The transition is not the bad, I so want to be able to do "without" ebay. So, everyone, please SPREAD the WORD, it can work for us eventually. I am still working at it and will continue using BOTH EBAY & Uhippo...
