New Things This Morning At Bonanzle
This morning after logging into Bonanzle, there is another one of Bill's Blogs, "Indulgent Snow Day". He has once again worked through out the night on new features at Bonanzle. This guy just doesn't sleep. He also has a great sense of humor, well worth a read to start your day with a smile.
Bill has added the calculated shipping cost from the items page. This means that you no longer have to get to checkout to discover what the shipping charges will be. It will go from your zip code if you are logged in, if not you will have to enter a zip code. This I do believe will help with sales for lots of sellers. I don't like to be surprised at the shipping charges at checkout.
Bill has also added the smiley's to the e-mails, hand picked items list and blog comments. You can now add pictures, bold and italics. The smiley's have thrilled many on the forums.
Now this next one has been something that loads have asked for and have now gotten. A user can now search for another user in the search with their user ID. This search will also bring up the users hand picked list.
He has also made it so that when you are switching between pages in a booth, the page no longer has to refresh, less time to load.
Bill's late night update says, "I just decided the next fun thing to add, and I added it. But I'm going to leave it as an Easter egg for some sleuth to uncover. I'll give you one hint: it'll help with your business cards." Like I said, he has a sense of humor.
Bonanzle is still #6 on the PSU listing count board this morning, with 14606 users. This is some kind of growth!
