If you’re a regular visitor to the site you might have noticed something odd going on in the secondhand, or classifieds, section of the site in the last week as the builders were in and the dust sheets were prematurely lifted. Good news is that the major overhaul is now ready
and there’s plenty of new features to make buying and selling secondhand gear even easier.You can now: post pictures up with your ad, link your ad to the member review system, start forum threads relating to ads, view the member profile of the seller and see where the seller is based, as well as make use of a whole host of new searching and sorting cleverness.
The biggest of these changes are adding photos and integrating with the member review system. Photos are to help you impress potential buyers with the condition of what you’re selling and will be free for an introductory period. Integrating the secondhand ads to the review system means that people browsing reviews can see immediately if someone is selling a particular product on BIKEmagic, and it also means that people browsing the ads can see whether we’ve got member reviews, articles, forum threads and so on, for something they might be interested in buying secondhand.
We’ve done a whole load of testing, but there’s bound to be a couple of niggles, so if there are, or you have any questions, let us know and check here for a full guide to using the new section.
We hope you like it.
