Our Optional Services consist of priority placements and attention-getting features that help to get more bidders to look at and hopefully bid on your item.
When a Seller elects to use Optional Services, the seller incurs a small fee at the time of listing as noted in the Fee Schedule below. Optional service fees
are non-refundable once used and must be paid for whether or not the item sells. If you choose to use any of our Optional Services and the item does not sell,
the item can be relisted free of charge using the same options.
Showcase listings are the most powerful marketing tool our sellers can use. Showcase items
are randomly displayed on our Home Page. Our Home Page is the most-visited page on GunBroker.com.
Consequently, Showcase items will be seen by the largest audience of any of our Optional Services.
Each category such as Rifles, Pistols, Shotguns and etc. contain two sections of item listings.
Featured listings are listed at the top of each category, and are listed first in search results.
Because the item is listed above other auctions, it will typically be seen by more bidders and
will often draw more bids and command a higher purchase price.
Make your listing stand out from others in the category listings for a small fee. This option
highlights your listing in yellow to make it stand out from the other listings.
Consider using boldface text to make your item’s title stand out from the others in the category listings for a small fee.
Upgrade your listing by using color to draw a buyer’s attention to your title - you can choose to
use red, green, or blue.
A colored title is especially effective when combined with the Boldface Title option.
A thumbnail image is a miniaturized picture of your item that is displayed to the left of your
item's title when a buyer browses or searches our listings. Thumbnail Images are an eye-catching
device designed to draw the bidder's attention to your listing.
A view counter keeps track of the number of times an item has been viewed since being listed. Sellers
can use counters as a way to gauge the interest bidders have shown in an item. They can also
experiment with different item titles and upgrade features to measure the effectiveness of each variation.
A Scheduled Listing is one where you select the start date and time for the item listing instead of launching it
immediately. Sellers can use this to enter items before they want them to be displayed so that they have
the flexibility to create, enter information and launch the items when it is convenient for them.
A Subtitle is additional text that is display below the Item Title on the search results pages. It is space that can be used
to provide buyers more information regarding your item, and it also improves your item's visibility and increases its searchability.
QuickLook is a preview of your listing that can be viewed directly from the search results page. It allows buyers to quickly view
more pictures and information from your listing without having to view the entire listing.
