Why are the NRA auctions not being listed first? I am making a NRA donation and my auctions are just being lumped in with all the rest of the featured auctions. These are not the conditions that I listed my auctions under.
You can select "NRA Auctions" on the opening page and on the sub-pages to see those exclusively, if you like. People search "NRA" auctions just like they do Penny Auctions, and that's what the searchers do.
When I signed up for these auctions the NRA auctions were listed at the top of the page ahead of the other auctions. Why would a buyer search NRA auctions? What is in it for the buyer? There is a reason to search penny auctions, they may find a great deal. There is no incentive that I can think of for a buyer to search exclusivly for NRA auctions, or am I missing something? There may be a very, very few that would like to see the NRA get a donation but I think that it would be way to few to consider it to be an advantage to use this as a listing tool to increase exposure.
In the real world Elitist I highly doubt that a buyer is going to choose to purchase one gun over the other because one generates a donation to the NRA. Like I said above "way to few to consider it to be an advantage to use this as a listing tool to increase exposure". Any member of the NRA has many oppurtunities to donate to the NRA, I get requests from them for donations a minimum of once a week and I give them plenty, I think they are a great cause. But to say that some one will seek out and purchase my item over another sellers because of the donation? Don't kid yourself
I look at it as I am donating some of my money from an auction sale to the NRA not the buyer. I would have to agree that a buyer will buy regardless of the fact it has a NRA banner. Now as a buyer if I see two exact items at the exact same price I will choose the one with the NRA banner in that case or even if one is a bit more.
NRA mewmbers do have a better handle on thier items and prices. axolotl
