Showcase Listings

Showcase auctions are randomly displayed on our Home Page.  Our Home Page is the most-visited page on JustBeads.com.   Consequently, Showcase auctions will be seen by the largest audience of any of our auction types.  When a seller lists an item, she/he can decide to have that item listed as a Showcase auction.   In doing so, you will incur a small additional fee for that listing.  Items that have been re-listed more than 5 times will not be included in Showcase Listings.

Showcase listings are an extra-charge optional service that we provide to our sellers as a way for them to get priority placement for their auction listings.  See table of fees below.


Featured Listings

Each category contains three sections of auction listings. Featured auctions are listed at the top of each category, and are listed first in search results. Because the item is listed above other auctions, it will typically be seen by more bidders and will often draw more bids and command a higher purchase price. When a seller lists an item, she can decide to have that item listed in the 'Featured' section. In doing so, she will incur a small additional fee for that listing.
