My willingness to spend real money is correlated to the transparency of the seller.
In the case of the upcoming PWCC auction, the seller’s identities are shielded.
I find that very discouraging, and I will have a very difficult time pulling the trigger on high level auctions.
This feels short-sighted.
I do not know their position. I can imagine that it was challenging dealing with consumers pointing out the (0) bidders. I can also imagine that some of the (0) bidders are real, and that PWCC wanted to limit their exposure to these complaints… that’s just my intuition.
But, I personally want to know that the folks I’m bidding against include (but not limited to) proven bidders.
(To the OPS - my apologies if this thread already exists.)
