is now Bonanza Worldwide!

Hello, Bonanzlers! We hope your 2023 is off to a great start. We have some exciting news to share with you, our community.
Effective March 9, 2023 Alloy and Bonanza Chief Executive Officer Bill Harding has sold to Quincy Faison under the newly established company, Bonanza Worldwide, LLC. Quincy will have complete responsibility for the Bonanza business including product and seller strategy, development priorities, and support. As you know, in recent years Bill has gradually stepped back from day-to-day operations at Bonanza, as he works to build the tools that can help medium-sized operations like Bonanza maximize their productive output. Bill will transition his full attention to his company's exciting new projects, Amplenote (tasks and note taking) and GitClear (developer metrics, git analytics). 
This transition in Bonanza Leadership is happening at a great time for Bonanza and its sellers. But you likely wonder what that means for you, a Bonanza seller and community member. According to Quincy, "Our plans for Bonanza is to continue to develop world class features for our sellers, but we are going to shift our company to be more marketing focused. We are going to drive more traffic. We are going to embrace social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok. We are going to help our sellers produce more videos to get more eye balls.

We are going to give our sellers more tools to help them run their business on and off platform. We are creating a DSP to allow our sellers to invest in pen point marketing activities to reach their potential buyers at an affordable rate. And finally, we are creating a lending marketplace that allows our sellers to borrow working capital to invest in revenue generating activities that structure the payback strictly based on revenue generated that month. Sellers love Bonanza and we are going to continue to be the company that Bill started 14 years ago with his vision and mission."
Prior to purchasing Bonanza, Quincy began his career with IBM 20+ years ago and focused on Small and Midsized businesses. He launched his first business at the age of 25 reselling SAP Business One to Companies with less than $10M in sales. Eventually, he built his own Cloud Based ERP focused on helping e-commerce companies manage their business end-to-end, supporting everything from financials to purchasing to inventory optimization to warehouse management to manufacturing to selling online via their own websites and a multitude of online marketplaces. 
For Quincy, Bonanza had that same DNA. Bonanza is focused on helping smaller to midsized merchants. Bonanza is customer centric and isn't afraid to go up against the big boys. The staff genuinely loves their sellers and the consumers that purchase from them. 
We hope you're all as excited as we are to welcome Quincy into the Bonanza family. We look forward to this exciting new chapter in Bonanza history!

    If this means you are now going to be competitive with eBay, I applaud this. eBay has had a monopoly on the internet sales for so long that their mentality is my way or the highway. They have taken so much from the sellers and rewarded buyers (Not All Buyers) for their shenanigans, those who are sellers on eBay know what I mean. The seller deserves more respect than what they get now.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 12:36:02

    Thanks for your feedback, freightliquidation! Bonanza will continue to focus on helping smaller to midsized merchants.

  • Ms_Prissys_Patterns says:
    03/10/23 at 11:55:58

    That’s all Bonanza was needing all along is for Bonanza to make more people aware that it existed. You know even after all the years I have been here, people say Never heard of it.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 12:38:39

    Hi Ms_Prissys_Patterns! We very much appreciate your continued support of Bonanza as it has grown thus far and we will be working to ensure you no longer hear “Never heard of it” again!

    qfaison says in response:
    03/20/23 at 09:32:38

    Ms_Prissys_Patterns thanks for your comments and your support. Our goal in 2023 it to change that and make sure everyone knows who we are which WILL drive more sales to your booth! By the way I left you a voicemail…call when you have a chance

  • TimsDiamondWillow says:
    03/10/23 at 12:02:45

    Wow, sounds promising & thus, exciting—even though I’m not sure what “We are creating a DSP to allow our sellers to invest in pen point marketing activities…” means.

    I just hope the fees don’t go up much (or at all for just listing items) and am eager to see more traffic driven to Bonanza. This encourages me to put more time into cleaning up my shop. ;)

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 12:46:57

    We share your enthusiasm, Tim! A demand-side platform (DSP) can automate the decision-making process on how much to bid for an ad in real-time. DSPs make the ad-buying process significantly faster, cheaper and more efficient. We will continue to update you along the way as we put these programs in place to improve sales. Thanks for your continued support of Bonanza!

    Hi SunRayCity_store! Thanks for your feedback about our webstores. They are a wonderful extension of a seller’s booth and I expect improvements to be forthcoming.

  • SparkysCollectibles says:
    03/10/23 at 12:17:38

    Uh yeah, forgive me for being cautious, but I don’t want someone that isn’t experienced in this sort of business, changing the way we sell on this platform,ie Ebay, forcing certain “policies” on the sellers.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 13:08:08

    Thanks for the feedback, SparkysCollectibles! We will still have the collective experience of Bonanza’s team which will be enhanced by Quincy’s experience in growing companies. I expect you’ll be pleased with the results of the expanded marketing. Thanks for selling with us at Bonanza! Take care.

    Great news! Tell Quincy I would love to see a live show on here weekly for 20 mins. Where if you pay a fee, one of your items/store could be advertised by Shelly like a QVC broadcast. It could have up to 10 different businesses showcased on every show. I would like to see fun new ways of taking Bonanza forward, not doing what every other company is doing now.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 13:14:54

    Thanks. Love your enthusiasm, and as always we appreciate hearing our sellers’ ideas and feedback on all things Bonanza!

    Quincy: “We are going to drive more traffic. We are going to embrace social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok.”
    Me: I sure hope so because I look towards the day when I can move my business from eBay, amazon, and Walmart, to bonanza 100%! Right now bonanza does less than 1% of my total business sales volume. But I have faith in the platform and am sticking with it :-)
    Let’s go Quincy !!!

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 13:25:59

    Hyper_Copia, thanks for sticking with us over the years, and for your faith in the platform. We appreciate it and look forward to working with you as we grow to provide some real competition for the big boys!

  • Alilbirdy2 says:

    I’m wondering if the Fees will be the same as it has been or will they change ?

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 13:32:12

    Hi Allbirdy2, there are no plans in motion to increase fees. We always try hard to be transparent with our sellers. We’ll keep you posted on all things Bonanza!

  • KathleenMarie says:
    03/10/23 at 12:53:51

    Sounds like a great opportunity for Bonanza. It will be a great advantage if Bonanza can obtain more visibility and recognition. Many sellers would really be interested in transitioning additional business to a platform that has strong marketing and is fair to both sellers and buyers.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 13:33:31

    Absolutely agree, KathleenMarie!

    Sounds good ! I hope Bonanza can be what E bay used to be .
    I used to sell a lot on EBay but with their changes it is
    Dead for me . I have lots of products Just need to get the word out !!

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 13:36:43

    Thanks for the feedback, Mr_Jims_Hot_Rod_Barn! I think the targeted marketing and social media participation will be so helpful to get the word out on products like yours.

    I am more of the “wait and see” type but there are things that need to be fixed before going worldwide. I enjoy using Bonanza even with its issues (ex shipping). Better adding someone new with fresh ideas than having another platform buy Bonanza & wreck it. I wish more platforms would operate as this one does.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/10/23 at 15:03:28

    Hi Piece_by_Piece! So happy to hear you are enjoying Bonanza. Shipping does have room for improvement especially for international sellers. We appreciate your feedback on this and will be exploring ways to increase simplicity and performance. Thanks for your continued support of Bonanza!

    Hi Rosemary! No worries, the url will not change. The changes that do happen will be over time and we will be sure that they are explained thoroughly before they are enacted. You can also contact me if you have any questions. You have a great booth and we appreciate your business. I saw you have a local craft fair coming up soon. That sounds like fun and I hope you get lots of sales! Take care!

  • ThePopShop says:
    03/10/23 at 19:10:24

    What about more international correspondence? Bonanza is very US-centric and inconsiderate to sellers and buyers outside of the US. Is anything being done to change this so that there is a more international to-and-fro flow of traffic such as with eBay and Etsy? Regards, Anthony

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/11/23 at 07:42:47

    Hi Anthony! Thanks so much for the great questions. We will be actively working to make international buying and selling better and would be happy to hear any feedback on that front.

  • Rt_21 says:
    03/10/23 at 19:22:54

    Hopefully shipping International will be an option and not a requirement. I for one do not want to deal with the inherent problems of customs delays, bad feedback, chargebacks, lost products, etc.

    Paypal and all other electronic payments have 180 returns associated with them as well. Not in the business or letting someone borrow something for 6 months interest free. I went through all of that with ebay, not doing it again.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/11/23 at 07:46:39

    Hi Rt_21, selling/shipping internationally will continue to be an option, not a requirement. Thanks for your support of Bonanza!

    Welcome to Bonanza, thecronesattic! Let us know if you have any questions getting started. Your booth is looking good, I love the green VERA BRADLEY satchel. Your prices are very reasonable too!

  • EmpressDepot says:
    03/10/23 at 20:53:32

    I like the idea of more advertising

    I did lots of social media in the past, gave it a real try, but I do not do it anymore. I do not have time but still I wouldn’t start up again regardless. Other than there are sellers here on Bonanza that will advertise for us for a fee. It’s not a big difference in sales but does give our items better ranking on google I feel indirectly.

    Good luck Bill.


    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/12/23 at 09:35:53

    Hi Sharon! I’ll pass along your well-wishes to Bill, thanks. Even if you do not want to work with social media anymore, your booth could still benefit from the site itself being involved in more social media. Thanks again for your continued support!

  • cabinlighting says:
    03/10/23 at 21:13:31

    This sounds great. I do very well on Etsy and I have not received one sale yet from Bonanza so I am hoping this new change will help all of us. The main reason I am sticking with Bonanza is their excellent customer service and the effort they put in to help us sellers.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/12/23 at 09:59:26

    03/11/23 at 03:01:45

    I have been with Bonanza since 2008 when it was just beginning. It is the only place I sell on and I enjoy how easy it is to list items and maintain a booth without huge fees. I don’t sell a lot, and it has always been more of a creative hobby for me than a business. I will be interested to see what changes are coming and I hope they are positive. I wish Bill the best in his new ventures and welcome to Quincy.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/13/23 at 05:47:50

    Thanks, Jan! As one of your customers, I’ve really enjoyed browsing your beautiful jewelry and other unique items. We appreciate your being an active member of our community and your kindness to other sellers needing help. I’m glad you will be with us in our continued journey of growth with Quincy at the helm.

    Welcome aboard Quincy! Currently Bonanza is an almost unknown ecommerce platform in the public eye. Ebay has it’s issues but is the current king of the hill. I collect more in sales tax on ebay than I do in sales on Bonanza. Ebay has features we need here on Bonanza. Like discounts at checkout for multiple purchases. Upgrade the shipping and drop the convenience fee! The ability to talk to a person! I look forward to experience positive upgrades on Bonanza. Good Luck! Have an Enjoyable Day!!!

    Agreed, WildflowersbyNakell! Thanks for your feedback and for selling with us on Bonanza.

    First of all… I love Bonanza [signed up when it was brand new – Bonanzle]

    I’m hopefully yet cautiously waiting to see what the changes will be before investing more time. I have 6 booths with just under 9,000 listings and thousands more waiting in the wings ready to list.

    I’m hopeful when I hear you say “Shipping does have room for improvement especially for international sellers.” I would be THRILLED if you would integrate the Canada Post Calculated Shipping app – years ago I talked to Canada Post and they said it was easy for a site to do but I guess there weren’t enough of us for Bill to bother with :)

    But I’m cautious about the fees aspect. I can handle fees going up no problem… I can adjust my prices accordingly BUT if it turns out that there would be a listing fee then that would be a deal breaker for me. The thing I love most about Bonanza is that I can list as much as I want and it doesn’t cost a dime until the item sells. Also the work involved in constant relisting.

    Congrats to Quincy for the acquisition and congrats to Bill on the sale – wishing them both [and all of us] a prosperous journey :)

    Hi Lorraine! Thanks so much for believing in Bill and Bonanzle since its first days. As a Canadian seller, your feedback is very important to us. We realize the challenge you’ve faced with shipping and appreciate the fact that this is so important to you that you would talk to Canada Post about integration. Thanks so much for being a valued member of our community all these years.

    Bonanza suffers from poor market exposure. Mercari has a terrible platform but has great success due to TV ads. If more people knew about Bonanza it could be the best platform for small sellers

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/13/23 at 06:25:14

    Thanks for your feedback rappkim. Marketing plans are already in place! We appreciate your support of Bonanza as the best platform for small sellers.

    Interesting news, can’t wait to see what Quincy brings to the table, and want to wish Bill the best of luck in his future endeavors! He has built a great company and hopefully the new ownership will allow it to continue to grow and thrive! :)

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/13/23 at 06:22:39

    Thanks, Tim! It’s been a pleasure working with you! As one of our original Bonanzlers we appreciate your continued support. Thanks for the good wishes for Bill in his future endeavors and your enthusiasm for how Quincy will grow the company. Take care!

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/13/23 at 06:15:25

    Thanks for the feedback brujah_ab! Many sellers have missed the app. We’ll see what we can do!

    Bonanza certainly needs more presence in the marketing area. Everybody knows of Etsy or EBay but hardly anyone I’ve spoken to has heard of Bonanza. I don’t have the time to spare to be a one woman marketing department for the platform and neither do my fellow vendors. Help us out here and at least do some basic marketing in the form of commercials/advertising. It would benefit everyone, sellers and company alike.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/13/23 at 07:39:32

    Hi The_CuriOddity_Shop! While we have advertised the site in the past, we focused more on getting actual listings in front of buyers. We have plans in place to enhance both areas. I think you’ll be pleased. Take care!

    One thing I would like to see is more integrations and updating the ones that are in the partners list. Some of them are not even active anymore. A good print on demand would be great like SPOD or Printful.
    Additionally, sprucing up the webstores with better designs or customization, or just offering, even for a fee, an official shopify syncing service would be great as well.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/14/23 at 06:47:08

    Hi gravityvideo! Thanks for the feedback. We’re already working on more integrations and hope to see the webstores get an update soon. Appreciate your continued support.

    Beautiful! Now could someone PLEASE add Poshmark and Mercari BULK Item to the cross listing feature?
    Perhaps fix the bonanza Ap selling uploader?

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/15/23 at 12:37:32

    You’re welcome, kycoy! I’ll be sure to add this to the wishlist of upcoming improvements. Thanks for your feedback!

  • little_red_shark says:

    Just as enthusiasm for Shopify quickly wanes with most Sellers, Bonanza is only marginally valuable or the same shortcoming: SEO. Without eyeballs on listings, none of this matters. Hopefully that is the focus of the new Bonanza. There is a lot to like about Bonanza and it has not scratched the surface on what it can be. The site looks and operates great. More exposure of listings and the company itself (advertising and social media presence) are sorely needed for a real jump to occur.

    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/15/23 at 12:40:17

    Appreciate your feedback, little_red_shark! We have a marketing plan to make huge steps toward getting more eyeballs on your items and Bonanza itself. Stay tuned!

    I’m so glad the blog is still open for comments.

    I forgot to mention a few things.

    I forgot all about something I had wished for several years back. I wish that out of all the membership subscriptions, that a feature here or a feature there could be purchased separately without having to pay for an entire membership where not all the features do I need….thereby causing the membership to not be worth purchasing.

    Also, please bring back the background burner. I used it all the time. I got used to working with it.


    BonanzaShelly says in response:
    03/15/23 at 12:43:14

    My main sales on Bonanza are natural uranium rocks, which I have found mostly at Jurassic Canyon NM, located near Grants NM. I obey all federal laws about uranium. The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission, rules # 40.13 and 40.22; together with USPS Packaging Instructions 7A and Pub. 52, Section 347.22, expressly FORBID shipping any uranium rocks to ANY FOREIGN COUNTRY, even to the friendly nearby country of Canada. I MUST obey these regulations!

    This is just a “side comment” on printing the postage label for mailing the Bonanza item to the buyers.

    (1) The mailing label is positioned TOO FAR TO THE LEFT on the printed page, and the surrounding printed box is MISSING the LINE FOR THE LEFT EDGE. Could the postal printing software be adjusted so that the mailing label is centered on the printed page, so that the left-edge line is actually printed? This is a minor change in printing that label; it would add a professional look to the label, that is presently absent.

    (2) Could the label do what Ebay labels already offer: an option for the seller to choose to state the POSTAGE AMOUNT SPENT at the label’s heading? I would choose this option if it were an option for sellers. Ebay does it already.

    (3) I use my UNM-Gallup university address as the return address when shipping packages to buyers. The mailing software label declares the sender to be, “BONANZA SELLER.” But about 300 people at the university address have mail boxes on campus, so I would prefer my own name, STEPHEN BUGGIE, to be named as seller, NOT “Bonanza Seller.” Again, Ebay’s shipping software already states the seller’s actual name as the package’s sender.

    (4) The items’ photos are already well printed in the Bonanza ads, and I am happy with those pictures. At Ebay, if I am late in shipping the box, then I append PHOTOS of the shipping box so the buyer will know what box will be left on their porch during a delivery. This is NOT yet an option with Bonanza, but EBAY allows, and even invites, sellers to attach photos to any Ebay message being sent to the buyer.

    I have another question and it’s because I am trying hard to understand. I am confused on Worldwide.

    I thought we were already worldwide since sellers can offer shipping to “all” countries? As far as I’ve known in the past we’ve been able to ship worldwide, isn’t this right?

    Please help me to understand. What have we not been doing that has kept us from being worldwide and what will we do that will make us worldwide exactly?

    Hi Sharon! Nothing has changed about selling internationally on Bonanza. We’ve always encouraged buyers and sellers from around the world. It is just a name change by the new owner.

    Just learned about Bonanza tonight after selling on eBay for many years. The process of setting up my store and linking my eBay has been remarkably seamless. I’m excited to see if my products sell well here. The Bonanza webpage is highly user friendly, even on mobile. Please excuse me if you’ve heard this one before, but one suggestion is that eBay does a rather usable and aesthetic mobile app. Does Bonanza have plans to develop any mobile apps?

    Thank you and I look forward to trying out this highly promising platform!

    BonanzaShelly says in response:

    So is it now ?

    And if so, will this have an impact on the link in my listings that goes directly to my booth?

    With change comes growth. With growth comes growing pains. I’ve been here a week and no sales yet. It’s still better than Ebay.Far more less complicated than Amazon and cheaper. I have faith in Bonanza. Love my shop being on Google already. Looking forward to a prosperous new year.

    I joined in early 2009 when we were Bonanzle and have seen a lot of changes over the years. My sales have always been good even with the Bonanzle/Bonanza lack of name recognition. I’m excited to see what happens with more emphasis put on getting our name “out there”.

    I welcome Quincy and look forward to seeing his ideas and the direction he will take Bonanza. I wish Bill the best with his now full time endeavors.
