Starting October 18th, Auctiva will begin auto-appending free BattleBids games to listings in certain categories for our users.**

BattleBids puts the eBay bidding process into an exciting game format. It is a free and fun way to give your buyers something new to enjoy about bidding to win on eBay!

The BattleBids games append beneath all the information of your listing, so potential customers see it after they have read about your item and viewed the images. We have also made sure to keep the file size of the BattleBids interface as small as possible to keep your auction loading times to a minimum.

There are three radio controls in your Account Settings under the Listing Enhancements section to help you set your BattleBids preferences:
  • Mark "No" if you would not like BattleBids games to append to your listings.
  • Mark "Use Best Category Match" if you would like for us to best match a game to the category on each of your listings.**
  • Mark "Choose My Own Game" if you think that one particular game would be fun on all your listings!

Make your auctions even more fun with BattleBids and Auctiva!

Happy Listing!

**Not every category will have a BattleBids game best match. On those occasions, no game will be appended.

Hi Community!

We noticed that a small percentage of people have set their BattleBids preferences in their accounts. We want to make sure that people have had plenty of reminders that we are going to be auto-appending BattleBids games to listings.

Therefore, we are giving people one more weekend to make their decisions on how to set their BattleBids preferences. Next Tuesday, Oct 23rd we will begin auto-appending BattleBids games on listings in the following categories:

If your listing does not fall under one of these categories, a BattleBids game will *not* get auto-appended to your listing unless you set your preferences to "Choose My Own Game" and pick which BB game you would like in all of your listings.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Starting Tuesday, if you change your BattleBids preferences, it will be reflected in listings launched after the change. Once listings launch with BattleBids games already in them, the games have to be manually removed from the listings using the eBay "Revise Your Item" form.

Please make sure that you set your preferences before Tuesday!
