Hi, I’m fairly new and trying to understand the protocols for selling on DPW. I’d like to offer my painting on auction for a time (ie, 3 relists of 3 days each - I don’t have enough patience to go much longer, lol), and then if it doesn’t sell I would like to list it at my Zibbet store (Zibbet is my preferred alternative to Etsy) with a DPW - URL buy type linking to the painting’s Zibbet page. I have a customer base established at Zibbet, so I want to go to that after trying the auctions here.
However, I’ve had a couple of auctions end without sale and I find the Buy Type seems to be stuck and I can’t seem to change it. I have listed my Zibbet store front page link as my default URL under Buy Type in my profile, but on the last auction that ended yesterday, the painting did not go to my default buy type. It’s just stuck there saying “auction ended” with no way for anyone to buy it.
The only way I can think of to get around this is to delete the painting and relist it with a URL buy type. Is that a viable option?
Any thoughts/advice? I’m trying to figure out how to make this site work for me, and I don’t really expect sales right off the bat (though it would be nice! ) but I was hoping it would be easier to combine selling on my existing Zibbet site with the DPW auction feature.
