Thanks bonanza

I was having really decent sales in June. Then Bonanza charged my credit card $100 for selling fees that I’d already paid. I filed a complaint, they said too bad they weren’t reversing the charge since they’d already ran it through & then my sales & views came to a complete halt.
I know summer is slow season & I know this is a slow site but I don’t believe that was a coincidence :(

It would appear to me that you should have a credit balance for the fees of $100 since you had already paid. If I were you, I would ask Bonanza Support to check that out. If so, and you paid with Paypal, I think they would refund the overpayment.

$100 for selling fees.. WOW. Were you advertising at the 30 pct mark or did you buy a Turbo pack to up your sales and that expired? Either that or you are on ‘Double Secret Probation’ for complaining. I truly believe they can turn something on and off at times as sales should be SO MUCH BETTER

Hi @CanadianGraphiti,

Thanks for reaching out and sorry for the confusion. Once your final value fee balance reaches $100, we will automatically charge the card on file. You have the option to manually pay your fees via PayPal before you hit the $100 threshold. If you do not pay down your balance, your card will automatically be charged once the $100 threshold is met. Learn more about paying your final value fees for sales made on Bonanza here:

Bonanza is unable to offer refunds on final value fees unless the buyer has been refunded for the order. If you have issued a refund to the buyer, you can submit a fee refund request from your billing statement and we will gladly refund the seller fees for those transactions.

Sorry to hear that sales have not met your expectations. We have a variety of tools and resources that can help increase sales. We recommend reviewing our Seller Success Articles:

I have found my greatest successes, over the years, by contacting my credit card company – or my bank, if it seemed to be an error on their part. They take these things very seriously and they don’t say things like “so sad – too bad.” Whether or not your sales coming to a total melt down is connected, I really can’t even hazard a guess. Good luck; sorry you have to do all the work yourself.

The staff at Bonanza is usually very cooperative & professional, I cant see them using language such as “too bad”. But as csshort said, all you need to do is contact your credit card company and inform them.
