Yes. Bonz will leverage their marketplace account which provides free enhanced Google Smart Shopping ads if you agree to pay a 9% FVF (Basic) rather than 3.5% (economy – no off-site advertising). Basic (9%) is the best value here unless you’re moving lots of items that easily sell themselves.

Yes, but it’s worth signing up for the 9% level so your items are shown in Google shopping. Bonanza gets very little traffic by itself. Just go to Selling/Advertise Items, and choose the “Basic” (9% fee) level rather than the default 3.5%. And then just raise your prices a few percent to compensate… that way, you cover the extra fees and still make a profit.
