We’re getting busier every day here at Tophatter and are so thankful for the support of the sellers that use our platform. We continue to brainstorm ways to make scheduling easier for everyone and wanted to update you on where things stand.
First off, Wendell’s scheduling algorithm went live today so you may have noticed changes in your scheduling capability. Two things to note:
1. Rather than only two options - 15 lots concurrently or 1 lot concurrently - we have introduced a spectrum of possibilities. Some sellers will be allowed 1 lot, some 3, some 5, some 10, etc. Very few sellers will be able to schedule 15 lots concurrently. This spectrum is aimed at reducing the scheduling log-jam.
2. There are now a variety of factors which effect scheduling, detailed in our help section here.
Secondly, the outdoor fair seems to be popular, and we’re rolling it out to all Jewelry, Supplies, and Bazaar auctions this week in order to make more scheduling alternatives available.
Our goal is to make it easier and quicker for our sellers to list, schedule and sell your items and we think these changes will help. Please let us know what you think.
