Bid for Wine on Twitter

Posted in Uncategorized on January 21, 2009 by AB

If you’re too busy to regularly check what’s happening on the site or read our blog but still want to keep up to date with what’s happening then join the Bid for Wine Twitter feed. This will allow you to receive short updates whenever anything important occurs.

New Listings Notifications

Posted in Uncategorized on January 20, 2009 by AB

I recently received the following email from one of our regular users

‘It would be great to have an automatic email every time a particular, favourite type of wine was listed. I find this particularly useful with other auction sites – as it saves me having to log in randomly in the hope that something might have been listed. It also means that I don’t miss things when I’m busy and don’t get a chance to surf the web every couple of days.’

We’re always keen to hear your ideas about how to improve the site and try to bring in the features that people ask for so we’ve gone ahead and added this capability.

If you want to receive daily email notifications about new listings from a particular region, then:

  • Log in
  • Select ‘My Account’ on the top right hand side of the screen
  • Go to ‘Change your registered interests and email preferences’ (you can also click here)
  • Once you’re in simply tick the box next to ‘Please notify me about new listings from the regions selected below’
  • Tick the box next to any regions you’re interested in

We hope you find this new tool useful!

I was contacted on Friday by Stuart George who writes for the excellent publication ‘The World of Fine Wine’ with a copy of the following article written further to an interview back in November.

Recognition of this sort is excellent news for sellers and is boosting the number of potential buyers for wines listed on the site by the day!
