Shipping Promotions Now Available
bidStart is proud to announce the addition of Shipping Promotions! As a seller, from the My bidStart - Shipping Details/Discount page you can now set special shipping promotions and discounts. For example, you could offer buyers free shipping when they spend $50 or more with you. Another example would be offering a max of $1.00 shipping when a buyer purchases 10 or more items. Separate domestic and international shipping promotions can be created, and only items eligible for combined shipping discounts will be eligible for promotional rates.
Several of our sellers are already using this exciting new feature which is certainly a win for both sellers and buyers! We'd like to feature two of these sellers here in this very newsletter! The first seller: Jerbear722 is offering Free Domestic and International Shipping when you spend $25 or more with him. The second seller: AVZENSports is offering Free Domestic Shipping when you spend $9.99 or more, and Free International Shipping when you spend $19.99 or more.

Google Concedes - Philately is Not a Crime!
We're pleased to announce that after our Press Release highlighting Google's misunderstanding of the 1970 UNESCO convention - Google has reversed course. The seller who was previously suspended from Google Checkout for selling United States stamps over 100 years old (Google believed that all stamps over 100 years old were illegal to sell due to a misunderstanding of the 1970 UNESCO convention) has now been reinstated! Google has admitted that upon further review their employee had misunderstood the 1970 UNESCO convention, and the seller in question had not done anything wrong. We believe that this matter has now been resolved, and are optimistic that no other sellers will face similar issues with Google Checkout moving forward.
