I also think that it sucks that we have to pay for shipping through leaptrade. My last trade with gamer2012 involved me sending out 3 games. Leaptrade charged me more than 7 dollars to ship the games. I could have shipped it for far cheaper. So if Gamer2012 wants to do another deal we're going to bring it over to gametz so I don't have to pay ridiculous shipping prices.
Apologies for not answering in here more often for you guys, I know Brem has been doing most of the talking here. Like others were saying, there is no silver bullet that will "fix" credit trading besides growing the site. When people decide to stop trading for credit it can be a snowball effect, and as much as we've been excited about bringing you some new updates, none of those would have had a major effect on increasing trading like growing will.
So, we've been focused heavily on our marketing plan for the end of this year. The end and the beggining of the year are always the peak times for used game sales and game trading, so we are going to do a sustained blitz of marketing to bring a lot of eyes to the site. This will be the biggest marketing push we've ever done and we are expecting to see a lot of new faces on Leaptrade that will be trading for both cash and credit. Bringing you guys a bigger opportunitiy to use your credits than any new updates we could have done. That's why we are doing a few smaller updates, but our main focus has been on preparing for this big marketing push that we are going to be doing in the next few weeks.
One of the smaller updates we did was to put the shipping back where it should have been after the post office raised and re-adjusted their rates. You'll now be able to ship first class at higher weights, so you won't be pushed into the more expensive priority mail as soon. That should help yankee's case where it was $7 for only 3 games.
